Well now, aren't we being sanctimonious now that the hammer has fallen on the cesspool of corruption known as the state government in Raleigh. For months and months this paper chose to ignore this festering boil involving the Democratic leadership in Raleigh, giving absurd reasons like "well, it's not a WNC issue." Then, there was the "innocent until proven guilty" excuse by the AC-T and the rest of the local Democratic delegation.
Odd that the AC-T had no problem publishing every rumor, half-truth accusation and outright lie being spewed out about Charles Taylor and paid for by out of district, state and country money from MoveOn.Org and its international scum bag George Soros.
No, we don't expect the AC-T to be unbiased, just honest.

We have no one to blame but ourselves for the state of affairs at the state level. Jim Black did what we allowed him to do trhu our represenatives. Why don't we ask them. has made deep enroads into our political organizations. We knew it before electing Congressman Shuler and we can only expect him to dance to their music. We must remember, dance with the one that brought you.
