Pope exposed! Yes, the robes come off at ArtPopeExposed.com

Posted by on Wed, Oct 5, 2011 at 2:29 PM

Unstinting as I am in giving Art Pope the credit he's due, I note with interest the new website, ArtPopeExposed, created by our Durham neighbors, the Institute for Southern Studies.

ISS Executive Director Chris Kromm and Editorial Director Sue Sturgis have made it their business to get to know Pope as well as it's possible to know him if you're not (as he told me in no uncertain terms recently that I was not) his friend. Chris and Sue have shared some of their work with the Indy, for which we're grateful. Sue is an Indy alum.

So what is ArtPopeExposed? It's an online compilation of stories, observations, facts and insights about Raleigh's multimillionaire moneybags to the world of conservative politics, Art Pope himself. For example, Pope was the subject of a Jane Mayer profile, "State for Sale," in The New Yorker this week. It's on the website. Then Mayer was on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC. It's on the website too. So are the stories ISS has published, the stories we've published at the Indy, and — if you send in a tip — the stories yet to be published that may have your fingerprints all over them.

All in one handy place, so you'll never miss a moment of the action as Art Pope puts his money and his tax-sheltered family foundation's money to work gumming up progress in North Carolina. Check it out.
