And let's not forget Stam's claim of harassment when constituents contacted members of the House Rules Committee in overwhelming support of HB84, the medical marijuana bill he killed by procedure.
While I've also never met the man in person, I've followed his activities at BlueNC for a couple of years and I can promise you, he is EXACTLY the type of candidate we need to see in every race and every level of office in this state.
Sometimes arrogance has more to to with the perceptions of those on the receiving end than the character of the person accused of being so. As for uncompromising; I've seen a lifetime's worth of compromise in candidates who call themselves progressives (or sell themselves as such), and I'm sick to death of it.
Give me a candidate who tells it like it is, pulls no punches, and occasionally calls an asshole or a liar what what they really are, in public, any day of the year over the sniveling, compromising, afraid-to-offend professional politicians we've had to put up with for as long as most of us can remember.
Protzman is a breath of fresh air in a room full of stale air and rusted tools.
Go. James, go!
