Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 11, 2019

North Carolina Republican lawmakers abruptly voted Wednesday morning to override Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper's veto of the state budget, sparking chaos in the chamber by bypassing Democratic lawmakers, the latest in a series of obstructionist moves by Republicans in the state.

Dozens of Democratic state House representatives weren't present for the vote, according to The Associated Press. Republican leadership had told them there were not going to be any votes until Wednesday afternoon.

No, #1, it's absolutely nothing like that at all you mental midget.

This is typical behavior for the NC House since the republicans drew their highly gerrymandered, unconstitutional districts. We'll see what the equally awful Senate does next.

Thankfully the districts will be redrawn next year and maybe some sanity will come back to NC state politics....not gonna hold my breath waiting for that to happen though.

On the bright side, even though Dan Bishop won the 9th district do-over election last night he did so by the skin of his teeth in a ridiculously gerrymandered district where a republican should have had a cake walk victory. That bodes well for a change, at least at the state level, with new district maps coming.

The Democrats were at a 9/11 memorial event. Republicans have no shame.

This is the kind of thing Rs do these days. Shame on the Ds for trusting them. They should have known better.
