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’ [1] 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?” [2]

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 [3] and here [4].
