NC Governor Purdue's staffers create data-sharing scandal
The Daily Caller ^ | December 19, 2011 | Neil Munro

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 Obama’s campaign to win the state’s crucial 15 electoral votes in November 2012.

Ah, yes. "We're continuing the 'old religion', except it's not really the 'old religion', just the 'old religion' adapted for suburban consumption. We like trees."

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.

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.

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.
2. “African-Americans”
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.

“Don’t forget the tree-hugging Wiccan folks in Black Mountain.”

Black Mountain has several Christian strongholds. Asheville is the one that’s lost.

How does NC end up with a ‘Rat Governator?

Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.

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

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.

McCrory is no conservative, more a “crony capitalist”. Charlotte is chock full of shiny taxpayer-funded toys from his 14 years.

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.
