Institute for Southern Studies keeps the pressure on Pope

For those who may have missed the first two articles in the Institute for Southern Studies’ ongoing series on the conservative political empire of Raleigh chain store magnate Art Pope, be sure to check out today’s latest installment: “Art Pope: Still dancing at the Tea Party?”

It’s fun (and a little scary) to learn some of the details of the close relationship between the Locke and Civitas groups and the “Tea Party” – a crowd that was even too wacky for the Koch brothers!

You can read the first two stories, “Blessed to Have a Pope” and “North Carolina’s Art Pope: Staying in Control” by clicking here and here.
