Why? To satisfy the irrational hate of an old TDS victim in Texas? Get over yourself, zed. It's not about your little snowflake desires.

Trumpites need the story to be that Democrats somehow decided not to attend a vote that was vital to them.

Truth is simple. NC got screwed.

We agree. A national newspaper lied in a story about them. That ain't cool.

Notice how often Republican propaganda rests on accepting the absolutely inexplicable behavior of others?

GOP pulled a fast one. So fast you might confuse it with a subversion of democracy.

No.

Did you read this story and the Post's admission of retraction? Exactly how is this Republican propoganda?

Poor zed sees evil republicans everywhere.

The retraction included proof that the announcement of the vote was announced several days earlier and that only one person was at the 8/11 rememberance.

Your delusions are mind-boggling zed.

At this point from all I have read I would like to see an audit of Rep. Jackson, the Democrat leader of the NC house.

He "was told" by the rules chairman that no vote would be taken that morning and passed it on to the rest of the Democrats. This despite the fact that the rules chairman doesn't call the vote and earlier announcements suggested there would be a vote.

I'm not saying he was paid off, I am simply suggesting it strongly.

#11 FTA:

"Moreover, the House veto vote was announced days in advance, according to audio provided to the Associated Press. Democrats, who claim falsely that Republicans broke the rules, had plenty of fair warning."

Has the AP denied receipt of this audio?

I can see something like this. NC appears to be a corrupt state. Easier to think someone got paid off in the service of a dirty trick than so many people magically forgot or were too lazy to show.

Goat no that's kind of my point.

They say there's going to be a vote and suddenly the day before a republican, who doesn't call the vote and the democratic leader should have known that, tells the democratic leader there won't be a vote. So the democratic leader runs off and tells all the other Democrats oh hey by the way no need to show up tomorrow there won't be a vote. Suspicious.

This could be true, I'll concede that. But I will say that once the writer of a story has been caught being dishonest, I have to question the veracity of the whole story -- not just the cited inconsistencies.

Goat I tend to agree.

My opinion and my reason for suspecting foul play comes from multiple sources and multiple interviews with multiple people involved in this. I find all the conflicting stories very questionable and the facts as presented so far do not add up. However if you take into account profit motive suddenly things click into place.
