Wonder if they will go after his wife also. Looks like she was involved and on the take also. Another Jessie Jackson Jr.

Wow! You must have been up all night writing that one. I bet your Mommy and Daddy has no idea you're playing on their computer again. Get somebody to change your diaper. You'll feel better, and you won't be so fussy.

I hope he goes to prison. His wife too. He is a perfect example of the con that black politicians are running.

Because the white ones are Sofa King smart?

This is North Carolina we're discussing here. 12 last names, fewer teeth, and as long as you believe in Richard Petty, Toby Keith, and The Invisible Man In The Sky, you too can be a preacher, NASCAR driver, or be next in line for America's Dumbest Dumby Dumb Derky-Boo-Boo.

Be right back - I must go check the Appalachian Trail for S.C. governors.

You MUST know he is 'singing like a Canary'...with the Feds threatening to send HIM & WIFEY to Federal Spa Prisons...and leave their kids to our Social Services Dept (we ALL know that they will be raised by family). I just can't wait to see WHO else gets taken down by their 'singing'...as he/they were not in this alone...he isn't smart enough. I AM hoping his "mentors" slipped up, too...as I would LOVE to see them 'go down' FEDERALLY!

I would like for them to start looking at the corrupt justice system and some of the screwed up lawyers high profile when they are done with this investigation.
Never know maybe some are already involved.
Where the sentences are not consistent with other sentences.
Some get way too much in prison where others receive nothing and did worse.
God help us in Charlotte NC
Cannon is not the only corrupt one here.

Oh, absolutely he is NOT alone and he didn't learn the How Tos of City Corruption on his own! Look at who his past 20 years " mentors" have been! From what I understand, the McCrory brothers brought Patrick out of the ghetto, and sponsored/mentored him thru all of his schooling, and his political journey. THE THINGS HE MUST HAVE SEEN AND HEARD! Our "slick Willie" Governor got elected with NO real campaign other than his good looks. He refused to answer any questions about where he worked, how much he earned, and only repeatedly stated that he wouldn't run a mean campaign...and he got ELECTED! That, alone, frightens me. Anyone who has lived IN this city for the past 25 yes knows he is the Duke Enery puppet and I bet he is palsy Walsh with the Koch Brothers, too...God help NC! Some of the most pristine and gorgeous country is soon going to be FRACKED into CONTAMINTED Swiss cheese...all in the name of. more jobs! Talk about corrupt!

Yo! Alexsey dumbass...if you are such a great hacker, then go after the BIG banks and their off-shore accounts and leave us working people alone. I'm guessing you're an amature, probably 12 or 13yrs old, and just looking for some quick cash. If you were a BIG TIME haker, you wouldn't be asking for tips on Topix!
