According to the North Carolina Republican Party:
Following news that liberal hatchet man Gerrick Brenner and his extreme front group Progress NC Action will file a political complaint against Governor McCrory, North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Claude E. Pope Jr. released the following statement:
“This snide group is nothing but a front for the left wing extremists in North Carolina, like Roy Cooper, to launch unfounded and baseless attacks against Republicans. It’s sad that these extremists spend more time focused on media manufactured political problems instead of working with Governor McCrory to continue his successful record of improving North Carolina’s economy and decreases in unemployment.”
Shady tactics? Sounds like a nasty way to draw fire away from a very damaged North Carolina Democratic Party.
UPDATE: Governor McCrory’s office has weighed in thusly:
“Do you ever notice how fringe groups like Progress NC get favorable treatment from the Main Stream Media – free of charge? Groups from the far left like Progress NC – led by a former television reporter – can make bogus complaints and the media will carry it no matter what. This has gone on for years. No more!”
