An amateurish flub right out of the box

[1]Good grief! Can Pat McCrory really be this clueless? The man who ran for Governor on a platform of combating the state’s “culture of corruption” is already selling access to rich people at $50,000 a pop [2]?

No, this is not some kind of weird, Onion-like fantasy story cooked up by depressed Democratic campaign people trying to make themselves feel better a month after the election — the guy is really doing this!!

Earth to the Governor-elect: Sir, you’re in a bigger pond now where people are actually going to pay attention to stuff like this. We know you’re new to state-level politics and that old conservative pols like Jack Hawke can probably make lots of pretty far out ideas sound like no big deal, but this really is a huge error. You need to ditch the fundraiser and dump Hawke from your transition team ASAP or risk starting your new administration out on a distinctly sour (and downright embarrassing) note.
