North Carolina Senator Richard Burr has made an interesting list. He one of a group of members of Congress who voted for the Wall Street bailout in 2008 and then voted against financial reform designed to crack down on the abuses that led to the economic meltdown.

Burr is also among the largest recipients of Wall Street cash for his campaign, raking in $1.5 million for his 2010 race and pushing his career receipts from the bailed out and still woefully underegulated financial sector to $3.3 million.

Pure coincidence I’m sure.

    Heiress and real estate mogul. Penny Pritzker was the 2008 Obama campaign’s finance chair. Hardly a socialist. Since the right wing has the big media megaphone in NC, they get to frame the debate and confuse and scare peeps….Meanwhile the ‘left’ in NC doesnt even have a radio transmitter to call its own. Go figure.
