Good news, if a tad late

Reporter Craig Jarvis of Raleigh’s News & Observer tweeted this afternoon that House Speaker Thom Tillis referred the indictment of Rep. Stephen LaRoque to the House Ethics Committee this morning.

This certainly sounds like an appropriate action and at least a first step in dealing with the scandal.

As this morning’s edition of the Weekly Briefing detailed, however, a) it’s been a long, darn time in coming, and b) there would appear to be a lot more to be done. Let’s hope more action is in the offing.

    Tillis is the definition of a reactionary politician, do nothing, act, only when forced by events. Focus on what ALEC tells me to do, go to happy place.

    Don’t worry the sheep will still vote for Tillis even after his corrupt political games and staff scandals-I mean it’s not like they read or do much of anything that requires intellect-the ignorant mouth-breathers
