Article in News and Observer goes once over lightly relationship between Pope Art and the Kochs but sheds no light anywhere. Nowhere does it mention (1) Pope being a director for Americans for Properous or (2) the money most likely funneled via Pope from Kochs into NC politics, for Republicans. This article is on par with most "mainstream" media output on Kochs and Pope, and people like them.

Here is a story about how New Mexico is considering moving its state funds to smaller local banks, away from the big four banks. This is part of a larger campaign to get folks to MOVE THEIR MONEY - initiated by Ariana Huffington and some economists.
To strengthen the little banks that are actually lending to small business and home buyers, and put pressure on the big four to be better citizens with better treatment of their customers. Could this happen in our state? Read it here.
Looks like McHenry's playing the only card he knows how: raising hell about "Democrats in Washington". Tonight's flavor? McHenry, using Linda Daves (who has met me and knows I think she's as shallow as a puddle of water in the street) as a squawkbox for his patent brand of bull, screaming about how Congressional candidate Daniel Johnson is lying about claiming his bags are not packed with Washington money.
Wait, are you kidding me? Patrick McHenry is behind this? The man known for lining his pockets with more Washington money (and spending that said money more frivolously) than virtually any other politician in the state? Wow.
