There’s an old joke that the most dangerous place to be in an election year is between a politician and a TV camera.
This year, the most dangerous place may be in any group regulated by Secretary of State Elaine Marshall.
Her Senate campaign got big headlines today by promising to investigate sports agents in North Carolina.
Yes, her campaign, not her office. Before this year, we heard very little from the Secretary of State’s office. Now, we learn that for years she has been tirelessly pursuing lobbyists, insurance companies, big corporations – and now sports agents.
Two things could come of this. Richard Burr might start raising money from sports agents. Or the agents might give to Marshall’s campaign to get rid of her.
