Democrats who worry about GOP control of state government can take heart: It won’t last long, judging from the Goldman-Malone mess.
It turns out that Republican Party leaders knew the whole tawdry and titillating tale, but still cleared the field for the School Board Soap Opera stars to run for higher office.
What were they thinking? That it wouldn’t get out? That nobody would care? That both Goldman and Malone would get elected – and it would never get out?
Pat McCrory says he’ll fix the “broken” government in Raleigh. Maybe he should start by fixing this.
Instead, he’s ducking it. Asked if he cast his early vote for Goldman, he told WBT reporter Chris Miller: “I voted for my Republicans. That’s what I did.”
When the reporter pressed him on whether that included Goldman, McCrory replied, “Thank you.”
It won’t be the last time he gets the question. There’s a debate tonight. And not much else to ask him about in the last two weeks of the campaign.
