Cookie monsters: Gov. McCrory, Blanche Taylor Moore

Posted by on Wed, Jul 31, 2013 at 9:46 AM

Sometimes a plate of cookies is not a plate of cookies, Gov. McCrory. Ask Blanche Taylor Moore.

There was plenty of outrage over McCrory's hollow—and sexist—gesture of handing a plate of cookies to women who were protesting in Raleigh over his signing of the abortion bill. But the Guv was only continuing a tradition of North Carolinians who hide agendas among the chocolate chips.

Alamance County killer Blanche Taylor Moore was convicted of the 1986 murderer of her boyfriend by slipping arsenic into his food, including cookies. She was sentenced to death in 1991 and remains on death row. She has always maintained her innocence.

The bodies of her father, mother-in-law and first husband were exhumed and tests showed they suffered from arsenic poisoning. Although she faced an additional murder charges, the prosecution chose not to pursue those cases.

A made-for-TV movie, Black Widow Murders: The Blanche Taylor Moore Story, aired in 1993. It starred starring Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched fame.
