The Knight of the Right…the $40 million man…and the businessman bankrolling North Carolina’s conservative movement.
All are phrases that have been used to describe Raleigh multimillionaire and businessman Art Pope.
This evening, representatives from Democracy North Carolina, the Institute for Southern Studies,and the NC AFL-CIO will host a “teach-in” about the state’s top political donor.
Here’s a snippet from the flyer promoting the 7:00pm event:
If you want to brush up on Pope’s influence in past elections in advance of the gathering, you can read Jane Mayer’s lengthy piece “State for Sale”  that appeared in The New Yorker in October.
The teach-in will be held at the N.C. Association of Educators Building (700 South Salisbury Street) in downtown Raleigh.
If you can’t make it, or happen to be out of town, the Institute for Southern Studies will be webstreaming the event at http://www.ustream.tv/user/facingsouth .
