Here’s another entry for your euphemism collection. It comes from the press release announcing that former Charlotte mayor and unsuccessful Republican gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory is joining the Charlotte law firm of Moore & Van Allen.

McCrory is not a lawyer. Here is how the release describes his role at the firm.

….he will focus his talents on helping new and existing clients develop strategic initiatives in dealing with complex and sustainable policies which are important to both the public and private sector.

Translation—he is running again for governor.

    Same job he had at Duke Energy. What a slimeball.

    The Only Slimeball in this room is James Protzman, who is a failed journalist
