I would vote for this man if he were the only one on the ballot. Give him a box of kleenex and tell him where he can put his signs,

"Campbell and Mumpower both had signs available for the 40 or so people attending, and Mumpower placards were plentiful in the parking lot."

It's pretty clear why Armour doesn't want signs at these debates. He doesn't have any signs! He's simply not a credible candidate --- he's just another windbag lawyer with an over-inflated ego who likes to hear himself talk.

Wrong headline again.

Should read: "Small town mayor apologizes for buffoonery"
“I didn’t apologize. I just went up to him and said,‘Sometimes we say things we probably shouldn’t in the heat of the moment,’” Staton said
If you claim that you said something you shouldn't have said, that's an apology: "a written or spoken expression of one's regret, remorse, or sorrow for having insulted, failed, injured, or wronged another."

Wrong Tim.

It should read:

"Small town Mayor that actually worked in the real world is cordial to biggest a**/career politician in WNC."

It should read:

Mayor regrets voicing comments; still thinks they're true.

No it should read: "Bloated windbag gets more free exposure for his raging insecurities and collosal ego while making vain attempt at an elected office he's dismally incapable of."

“I am the only elected official at this table,” Mumpower said.“I have been in the trench in one of the toughest arenas in the country — Asheville, N.C.”

Point illustrated. Perhaps we can get this clown's ego its own area code and alert air traffic control in the southeastern region to create a no fly zone.

Watch for yourself the opening remarks from the debate:


The full debate along with words from Mr. Hicks who explains the mistakes that were made.

I give Dr. Mumpower high grades for making a stand based on facts.

Will post very soon.

Correction

A dart on Saturday’s editorial page INCORRECTLY SAID that GOP congressional candidate Carl Mumpower attended a debate in Flat Rock after he got his way in a dispute over campaign signs. HE DID NOT.

A dart on Saturday’s editorial page INCORRECTLY SAID that GOP congressional candidate Carl Mumpower attended a debate in Flat Rock after he got his way in a dispute over campaign signs. HE DID NOT. Mumpower and other candidates were allowed to erect signs outside the St. John in the Wilderness Parish Hall where the debate was held. They were not allowed to place banners, posters or signs inside the hall.“That (prohibition against political signs inside the hall) is not only a village rule of long-standing, it is also a rule of the church in whose house we were guests,” Flat Rock Mayor Bob Staton said.
