The increasingly entertaining feud between State GOP Chair Tom Fetzer and 8th District Congressional candidate Tim D’Annunzio continues. The Charlotte Observer reports that D’Annunzio is now calling on Fetzer to resign his post.

Today’s Fitzsimon File takes at look at the Republicans squirming because of D’Annunzio’s candidacy. And while I am at it, the Justice Center’s legislative agenda for this year’s session is now posted. 

Gary Pearce asks the obvious question about the way the Perdue Administration handled the appointment then un-appointment of John Tote as a top DHHS official. Have they heard of Google?

The Obama Administration has asked a federal court to dismiss a Virginia’s challenge of the new health care reform law challenging the state’s standing to file the suit and maintaining the law is constitutional.

Our neighbors to the South appear to have another political sex scandal on their hands, with allegations by a prominent conservative blogger that he had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Republican Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley and has texts and voicemails to prove it.

Haley was recently endorsed by none other than Sara Palin and Jenny Sanford, wife of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, he of the legendary Appalachian Trail alibi to cover up his own affair with an Argentinean woman he calls his soul mate.  It makes your head spin.
