Special session quickly becomes a circus
If anyone still had lingering notions that the GOP leadership in the N.C. General Assembly has any commitment to openness and due process, they simply MUST be disabused by the absurd chaos over at the Legislative Building today.
We’re almost an hour into the special session and no one has yet really explained what the hell is going on. First the absurd defense of marriage amendment was going to be heard first in the Senate. Now it appears it will be the House. Meanwhile, the House Finance Committee is convening a hastily-called session on a tax matter completely unrelated to the ostensible reason (amending the constitution) for the session.
These guys are shameless.
