How to bleed a bank account the NCGOP way

My, my. The following comment found its way to an unusual place. A place to promote an agenda through some bizarre sense of dialogue while simultaneously bleeding the bank accounts of the ideological and ignorant. North Carolina GOP’s Facebook page.

The NC GOP is a disgrace to North Carolina! You continually push for and pass unconstitutional laws that waste out tax dollars.

Why "performing an act" in North Carolina sounds icky

If evidence of the absurdity of Senate Bill 2 hasn't hit home by now, it never will. Also known as the "Bigots for Berger's Re-election Bill,” it allows county magistrates to opt-out of performing marriages that conflict with their closely held religious bigoted beliefs. And God knows North Carolina has some bigots. Fancy, salaried bigots for sure. Whether on a local, county or state level, these principled bigots enjoy their financial livelihoods at the expense of North Carolina’s taxpayers. While words like "opt-out" might sound purposefully important, “cop-out" seems more appropriate. As Taylor Batten writes in the Charlotte Observer; "I now want in on Senate Bill 2", a positive side to this absurdity might be floating to the top.

Republicans buy diversity from iStock Photos

It's no secret that the Republican Party has a problem with diversity, and a recent ad campaign brought that into focus in a hilarious way. The major fail of the "Republicans are people too," campaign was first noticed when the hashtag #IAmARepublican was hijacked on Twitter by meanie libruls.

Nice Try, Fellas

Republicans in North Carolina have been having a rough fall—it turns out that ethical shortcomings and lying to constituents don't win you any popularity contests. Add that to the President's falling approval ratings and Democrats' recent fundraising successes and you've got a good reason for GOPers to stay in bed.

Desperate to turn the spotlight elsewhere, NC Republicans are attacking former Congressman Frank Ballance, who was indicted for diverting State funds to personal use (and pled guilty to a negotiated charge). At issue is money that Ballance raised for the NC Democratic Party, which the National Republican Congressional Committee likes to call "dirty" money. While they manage to mention the cash in the same paragraph as Ballance's trial, the GOP has done nothing that I know of to show that the funds Ballance donated were in any way related to the funds he misused.
