McCrory Makes Last Attempt to Stick It To His Successor

December 30, 2016 By Taegan Goddard

“With just one day to go before he leaves office, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) threw a legal Hail Mary to the U.S. Supreme Court in another apparent effort to undermine his Democratic successor’s ability to govern,” the Washington Post reports.

“McCrory filed an emergency request to the Supreme Court, asking the justices to pause court-ordered special elections for more than two dozen state legislative districts in 2017 — special elections in which Democrats could have an opportunity to pick up seats in North Carolina’s GOP-dominated legislature.”

Rick Hasen: “My guess is that the Court does not issue the stay.”

Meanwhile, the Raleigh News & Observer reports McCrory hung his official portrait in the governor’s office for Gov.-elect Roy Cooper (D) to see upon taking office on New Year’s Day.

2. He really

thinks hanging his portrait is going to Give Gov Cooper a sad? HAHAHAHA. I am thinking Gov Cooper will put up a dart board next to it and "accidentally" have bad aim or "accidentally" drop it when he takes it down.

Judge Blocks N.C. Law Stripping Power From Incoming Governor

RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina judge granted a small victory to the state's incoming Democratic governor on Friday, temporarily blocking a law by Republican lawmakers stripping him of control over elections in a legislative power play just weeks ago.

Wake County Superior Court Judge Don Stephens blocked the new law, which would end the control governors exert over statewide and county election boards, as Gov.-Elect Roy Cooper is set to take office Sunday.

10. NC not SC.

We're two separate states and we're having a contest to see who can elect the batshit craziest people. The 2016 title goes to NC.

16. I don't think he can donate it, but there are other things to do with it

My recommendation: lay it on the roof on the south side of the NC Capitol, and forget about it until 2020.

He'll be run out of Charlotte if Trump doesn't give him a job.

17. I imagine these republicans have fascists on the payroll figuring out how to subvert the will

of the people.

There is a point that Democrats are going to HAVE to quit playing nicely. It may be too late.
