I understand that Bev Perdue claimed she was looking at ways to cut the budget.
And I understand that the News and Observer, ever credulous (that's the BEST interpretation...), reported it as fact.
But....allowing the state to make only no-bid contracts so that it can channel money directly to friends and cronies...wouldn't that be a place you would think of cutting, if you were serious? Why is it that the News and Observer only tries to go after the corruption of ex-governors? Why not question this horrible mess while they are still in office?
Look, even Mickey Michaux is surprised.
