FOR SHAME!

To the Republican legislature in North Carolina:  How can you sleep at night???  Have you no sense of decency?  For SHAME!  What a disgrace.

GROUND ZERO FOR VOTER SUPPRESSION!

My anger is giving me heart palpitations!  North Carolina has become GROUND ZERO for voter suppression.  Breaking the law (violating the now unconstitutional Voter ID law which targeted people of color "with almost surgical precision" ) according the the judge who overturned it last July, seems to now be the modus operandi for our Republican controlled state.

Below is an article from today's  Chicago Tribune about the latest voter suppression scheme attempted here.  Thankfully, the NC NAACP, under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. William  F. Barber, filed suit and won!  As a believer in justice, fairness and equal rights, actions like this send chills up my spine.  From the day he took office, Gov. Pat McCrory (R) and his gang of out of control congressional members, have run roughshod over the Constitution, overturning rights of citizens at every turn, instituting a list of atrocities a mile long.  

If you believe, as I do, that this kind of action MUST BE STOPPED, vote McCrory and his Republican cronies out of office!  My choices who I believe will restore justice to North Carolina, are ROY COOPER for Governor and DEBORAH ROSS for Senate

Here's the Trib's outline of what has occurred, and thankfully, been overturned.

VOTE!!!

Are you registered to vote?   In North Carolina, the deadline to register is this Friday, October 14, 2016.   If in doubt about your status, call your local Board of Elections to make sure you're on the rolls.  The upcoming Nov. 8 election is vitally important!  Your vote counts now more than ever.

The information below may be helpful to you.  Please remember that the controversial "Voter ID" law was declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL by the federal courts in July, 2016.
