We North Carolinians know that Jim Black was instrumental in us having a NC Lottery. He fought for it many many years, never giving up. He was approached many times by other representatives wearing mikes trying to get him to agree on crooked stuff in which he did not bite. He named them in his testimony. Why aren't they in jail too?
So, they went on a witch hunt to find something to get on him. They found a $25,000 discrepancies in his financial records, couldn't prove anything else and ruined his life just because he helped get NC a lottery. For all of you who didn't know - that's the reason he's in jail now. The media will make you think something different.
Those as*sholes couldn't stop the lottery (even with stupid lawsuits) so they hung him from the nearest tree. Giving him until Dec to raise 1 million dollars. How can a judge be brought like that? They should be in jail.
This is what I don't get....most politicians if you dig deep enough you will find something they should go to jail for and they all know it but if you do something that is not liked you will get crucified. Why is that acceptable in our society?
I don't turn my head to people breaking the law but I despise witch hunts. This bites my ass. So all of you NC people out there who love the lottery, this man was the sacrificial lamb and the revenge of the non-lottery group in us getting the lottery.
I knew non-lottery groups didn't want a lottery in NC, but my God, I didn't think they would go this far.
My tirade for today.
