Maybe the former governor can apply for unemployment while he trudges through his job search. But oh wait, according to the changes made in 2013, he would only get $350 a week. Maybe that would cause a little humility in the man.
"In 2013, McCrory signed a law reducing the maximum unemployment benefit from $535 to $350 per week. ... according to the Charlotte Observer.
"Senator Josh Stein Resigns to Focus on the Attorney General Race

When I heard this announcement, I thought to myself; WOW, This man is a man of absolute PRINCIPLE!
Ever since the 1980's when I lived in Richmond VA and the sitting Governor, Doug Wilder decided to run for President, I found that to be a shirking of his sworn duty to the State. Since then, I have always expressed my thoughts that if you decide to run for office before your term is out, you should resign because you will not be able to effectively do the job you swore to complete by the voters.
Josh Stein, is a man I will support because his actions are expressive of his commitment to doing right by the Voters of NC. And not like other so called representatives who take a salary which they do not work for and shirk their sworn duties in favor of a chance at a better position. And if they do not get elected, they think they can just go back to the job they willfully ignored to go advance their own agenda.
Try that in the real world and you will get yourself fired on the spot.
Thank you Josh Stein for leading by example and for caring enough about your obligation to the voters.
You can count on my vote for Attorney General.
