AP ignores McCrory's connection to convicted fraudster

Which is becoming a habit with mainstream media:

A top executive at a North Carolina paving company has pleaded guilty in federal court in what prosecutors say was an $87 million scheme involving government-funded road construction projects.

Carl Andrew Boggs III pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Department of Transportation and money laundering. The 50-year-old from Waxhaw is president and part owner of Boggs Paving, Inc. He now faces up to 25 years in prison and $500,000 in fines.

And not one word about Boggs hosting a campaign fundraiser for Gubernatorial candidate McCrory, during the time Boggs was ripping off the Federal government, no less. If this had been Bev Perdue or Mike Easley, the press would be all over this connection like flies on dog poop. Infuriating.


I shouldn't allow myself

to get angry on a Friday. But after running into a paywall at the Charlotte Observer (when did that happen?), and then clicking the N&R story only to find no mention of McCrory in the story, I said several bad words. And my mom overheard a couple of them, which made it even worse. ;(


Surely she's heard your potty mouth before this. ;)

But honestly, where is the LIBERAL media in this?


"...the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be."

She's heard it a few times

But after I apologize, we act like it never happened. :)

Where did you hear such words anyway?

I have a CharO subscription

If you ever need me to look something up for you.... I do not have and N&O subscription, though.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

I have neither

But it looks like I may have to cough up the bucks for at least one of them, and it will probably end up being the N&O.
