When I was a Soldier we usually referred to these kinds of people as being able to f*ck up a wet dream. I’m a civilian now and try to avoid such analogies but… What else could describe this?
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A state lawmaker and a group of Democratic political donors with ties to Gov. Beverly Perdue are poised to sell land at a handsome profit should a tire plant be lured to North Carolina with $100 million in state and local incentives, according to public records reviewed by The Associated Press.
As North Carolina’s chief executive, the governor is a key decision maker in large incentives deals involving state money. She also helps appoint the board members of a foundation that’s been asked to provide part of the tire plant’s package. Perdue’s campaign has received more than $52,000 from five men with an ownership stake in the Brunswick County industrial park proposed for the new plant.
The governor’s son, Garrett Perdue, is also a lawyer and site-selection consultant for an influential law firm that a county official said was advising the tire company. The firm, Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, does not disclose which projects the younger Perdue works on, citing attorney-client privilege.
Tax breaks and other government offered incentives brought auto manufacturing to Tennessee, Alabama and other non-Detroit, non-Democrat/Union controlled States. I don’t have an issue with Government aiding and assisting business. I do have an issue when aiding and assisting only happens to Democrat donor owned business. What is really behind this Tire Plant? Is this Bev’s version of Solyndra?
Here’s another reason for you to fear America’s constitutionally guaranteed elections Bev. You wouldn’t have to worry about them or arrange pay-offs for your contributors if you’d retire NOW.
