It’s pretty hard to convict a politician of corruption but a well-meaning soul over in the State House tried to change that by putting a provision in a crime bill to allow Grand Juries to investigate politicians in bribery and corruption cases.

There was probably never a bill politicians were less likely to pass but, amazingly, the bill sailed through the House and landed in the Senate where temptation whispered (in the form of self interest) and the miracles ended.

The Old Bull Mooses killed the provision.

There will be no Grand Juries investigating politicians in North Carolina.
