Poor Jim Black went to prison today. He was the victim of circumstances. He only made one mistake. He got caught taking bribes.
This only proves what most of us have known for years. Here in NC, we have the best damn government that corporate money can buy.
I'm sure the Optometry Association (Jim was one of their stellar members) can put a different spin on this. They will say that, by coincidence, they made campaign contributions to a member of the legislature who they "thought" "might" support legislation in which they had an interest. To put it in a different view, they were buying legislation that would benefit them. Look at the record. Unfortunately, their point man got caught. Tough!
Wonder who will be next? There are lots of phony campaign contributions floating around the capital.
