Wake's GOP Commissioners -- all three -- make asses of themselves

Posted by on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 at 4:37 PM

Great reporting by the N&O's Josh Shaffer, which allows only one conclusion: Wake County Commissioner Tony Gurley, pretender to the chairman's seat, has lost his mind, perhaps in the same location where his fellow Republican Commissioners Joe Bryan and Paul Coble lost theirs. It's a must-read ... and a must-remember.

One question: Democrat Betty Lou Ward has been on the Board of County Commissioners for 21 ydears, and she didn't know that when she left the room without asking to be excused, she was opening the door to the Republicans' trick? Of course she did. Still, the Republicans's behavior, which lasted all night and into the morning hours, was inexcusable. What were they doing, trying to out-boor the Republicans on the Wake school board?
