NCGOP infighting is like chocolate: enjoying it as much as I do is surely wrong, but it feels so right. The Jacksonville Daily News offers up this amusing article about Republicans challenging other Republicans' residency regarding house races.
[District 14 challenger and Republican Keith] Williams, who wasn’t aware his residency was challenged until he was contacted by The Daily News, said he has lived at 653 Parkertown Road since January 2004, although he is only there on the weekends.
“I stay in the Raleigh area because I have a job there,” he said. “I stay here during the week and go home on the weekend.”
[District 14 incumbent Republican George] Cleveland said the Parkertown Road residence is the home of Williams’ parents. If Williams came home every weekend to their residence, he could claim Onslow County as his county of residence. But he doesn’t, Cleveland said.
“I personally don’t think he comes here on weekends,” Cleveland said. “I’ve talked to many people in that area of the community, and they’ve never seen him.”
Williams goes on to say that Cleveland is "playing little games" and calling the accusation "crap," and Cleveland end up calling his challenger's integrity and character into question. And this is only one of two races described in the article! I should be allowed to start every day like this.
