Here’s a headline for you from the Triangle Business Journal .
Art Pope: I am not a controversial figure
Let’s see, you have given more than $40 million to right-wing groups and conservative politicians in North Carolina in the last ten years, you literally helped draw the redistricting maps that increased the Republican legislative majorities, you were one of three national board members of the tea party group Americans for Prosperity, you sit on the board of groups that run attack ads against political candidates you disagree with…and that’s just for starters.
No matter what people think of you, almost everyone has to agree that you are at the very least a controversial figure.
Give me a break.
