Skip to comments.NC Governor Purdue's staffers create data-sharing scandal
Posted on 12/19/2011 2:03:11 PM PST by cblue55
Staffers working for the Democratic governor of swing-state North Carolina have been using embargoed federal data for political advantage, putting state employees at risk of jail time, according to emails uncovered by the free-market John Locke Foundation.
Republicans jumped on the news to demand explanations from embattled Gov. Beverly Purdue, whose declining poll ratings may stymie President Barack Obamas campaign to win the states crucial 15 electoral votes in November 2012.

She’s a Democrat, so the law doesn’t apply to her.
How does NC end up with a ‘Rat Governator?
Mistakes were made. The process broke down. The system failed. An internal investigation is underway. We’ll be offering no comment because of the ongoing investigation. Procedures will be overhauled. A commission will be created to look into this.
To many Northeasterners migrating to NC therefore making it a 50/50 state.
For example: the town of Cary stands for Containment Area for Retired Yankees.
” I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD! “
Wha..??? We can’t POSSIBLY report on this!
North Carolina is a critical swing state, and Princess Barack needs it to win!!!
How many other Rat governors got advanced notice?
Asheville - Toe River Valley - Blowing Rock. Beautiful scenery, nutcase locals. Take the Toe River Art Tour sometime if you doubt that.
Can’t we pass a law to disenfranchise any NYer or Calif. refugee from voting for 100 yr?
She killed E-Verify in NC, she needs the votes, obviously.
It's not all Yankees pulling the Rat lever at election time.
Since 1879, NC has had Rat Governors for all except 2 brief four year periods. It's a tradition. The last GOP Governor was 1973-1977. This year we elected the first GOP Legislature since 1898.
I will admit though a lot of Liberal Yankees are stinking the place up - just like they are stinking every other place up. I say that as a transplanted Yankee!
But if the Bamster thinks he is winning NC in 2012 like he did in 2008 he has another think coming - unless Ron Paul runs 3rd Party. Then he might win.
The dog ate my law books...................
...Of that group of critics, Ms. Perdue said he believed that a few the more extreme segment were motivated by animus against Mr. Obama and that she served as a stand-in for him. This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, she said, both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that neither of us have any balls.
“errors crept in” is one of my faves.
Don’t forget the tree-hugging Wiccan folks in Black Mountain.

Got it! The Blues Brothers (Belushi to Carrie Fischer).
Seriously, though, I think that people have Rat Scandal Fatigue. Criminal, immoral, or unethical behavior is not only normal, but actually encouraged and expected, if its goal is to produce the desired “progressive” results.
Can anyone tell me when Purdue is up for reelection? (any chance she can’t run again) I moved here last year and keep expecting to here some conservative announce they’re running. Thanks.
IOW, this will become the new Wiki entry for "open government" (hot linked to "full disclosure"), and disambiguated from "Hatch Act" and "felonies under the color of law."
1. Some old folks with faint memories of their beloved FDR.
3. Yankee transplants oozing into cesspools like Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham.
That would be 2012, and former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory is the probable Republican nominee.
She thinks we should suspend elections for two years so the dims can get things done. A former educator turned dictator. Glad I left nc.
“Dont forget the tree-hugging Wiccan folks in Black Mountain.”
Black Mountain has several Christian strongholds. Asheville is the one that’s lost.
Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
She rode zero’s scrote hairs.
It won’t be this sorry beotch’s fault if
Zero loses NC...It will be all Zero’s...We just hope Bev goes with him...I think she will. This last 4 years has been a pure disaster.
I’m a damn yankee and I moved to NC because of its low cost of living. No way I could afford to live on my own where my parents reside in the state of MD. By the way, I don’t live in Cary, I’m roughing it with the natives. :-P
Scratch one Democrat.
Scratch any Democrat, find a crook.
Unless the economy improves in this state, he’s not going to win in ‘12 even though demographics are becoming favorable to him.
I predict nothing will come of this just like with any other misdeed that a Dumocrat is involved in.
Containment Area for Relocated Yankees.
People don’t move to Cary to retire.
“The last GOP Governor was 1973-1977.”
Don’t forget the GREAT 8 years of Jim Martin!
McCrory is no conservative, more a “crony capitalist”. Charlotte is chock full of shiny taxpayer-funded toys from his 14 years.
Yikes. You're right! How did I miss him!!??
My humble apologies to all.
NC is now known as the California of the East Coast. Very expensive living in southeastern NC.
0BTW, if this has been ongoing as long as accused, and as many people received the information as is suggested, we’re talking Hundreds of Years of Federal Prison Terms and millions of dollars of fines.
This is nothing short of a collapse of the rule of law.
The end is near in the rearview mirror.
A common misconception.
Some of the northerners are more liberal, but many are reliable conservative Republicans in a state without a strong Republican tradition.
There has also been an influx of blacks and hispanics to go with a strong unaffiliated segment, giving a megabucks campaign an opportunity to strongly skew the electorate in its favor.
Boom! Nails the demographics, I expect. Along with some children of the 1st group.
For an example of group 3, the AICPA moved its back office operations from NYC area to Raleigh-Durham a few years ago. While they hired a lot of new folks, since many people wouldn’t move down, many did.
We're pretty happy with living in south central Pa in an area ("outside" Harrisburg) where folks are 70-80% Republican. The only thing we don't like are the state taxes and lack of right-to-work laws. If we move it will be to the deep south or Texas.
You had an active voice sentence in that diatribe! Try again!
I lived in Asheville eleven years. It is very expensive to live there as well. Just glad to leave the cesspool. From the state taxation nightmares to the culture, glad to be gone. Perdue is ready to establish her rule, having learned from the best at corruption. I was always shocked at how close raleigh truly is to dc... in proximity and thought.
.....same Ratard that decided it might be better to “suspend” elections because of Dumbo’s economy.
. If we move it will be to the deep south or Texas.
I have had plenty of opportunities to leave TX and go to NC but after reading these comments, NC is too leftist for me and that is coming from someone who lives near Austin.
TX is in the midst of a multi-year drought and I am not so sure that this place will even be habitable come next summer without a couple tropical storms or hurricanes marching up through the state. Then there is the problem of infrastructure. TX city government is as corrupt and incompetent as any CA city, and thus while the traffic in the Austin Metropolitan Area is growing by over five hundred cars a week, there is no leadership or plan to alleviate what is considered already by AAA as some of the most congested freeways in America.
I love TX, but, like NC, the cancer of progressivism/socialism is metastasizing and it is quite possible with the influx of communists and marxists from both the East and West coasts, and the unstopped train of human debris flooding up from South of the border, TX will be a blue state shortly after Perry leaves office.

Yep. No offense, but one of my pet peeves is the “try that in Texas” myth. Texas is going down the exact same path as California. Trust me, I’ve lived in rural Southern California for 51 years. Demographics is destiny, and I don’t see any way out. Not for California, not for Texas, not for the union.
She also vetoed the voter ID bill (for the same reason).
4. Daddy always voted dimocrap.
Of course, that was back when the democrats had conservatives. Many traditional dims simply cannot understand that their party left them long ago.
