Quite a bit of venom has been spewed over the back-room, old-style politics practised by North Carolina's Speaker of the House, Jim Black. Some of it has bordered on libelous. Some of it has been over-the-top. All of it is getting old.
Talk, talk, talk. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
It's time to take action.
After spending weeks promoting the 100 County plan - a plan where the people will build the party from the grassroots up, recruit candidates and promote the progressive brand, some here spent time yesterday planning to undo that good before it could even be done.
(snark)Shame on you.(/snark)
It was mentioned in the comments of Robert P.'s Diary that we should shout about the NC Democratic Party's corrupt ways from the rooftops of DailyKos. We don't need DailyKos to display our displeasure. We don't need to issue threats. we don't need anyone else to do our jobs for us. We are good enough, right here at BlueNC.
However, we do need a dedicated site where we can catalogue and profile all of the Democrats who endorse and embrace the ...ahem... leadership style of Jim Black.
Please meet, CorruptDems. It is currently a blogspot blog and I am the only one who can post blog posts at this time. I am hoping this site will not be needed. I'm hoping that after the wishes of the Democratic electorate are known to our representatives that they will vote for open and honest government.
If the NC Dems elect someone other than Jim Black for Speaker, this site disappears. There will not be a need for it. If Black is elected Speaker, then we may find a need to move the site, change the software and bring on more diarists. For now, it is simply a warehouse waiting to be filled with information about Democrats who refuse to move forward into an era of transparent leadership.
BlueNC is dedicated to making North Carolina a more progressive and prosperous state. If your intention is to disrupt this effort, please find somewhere else to express your opinions.
