Ding Dong the Krapper Kop Gov. McCrory of NC is Gone

But He Left a Pile of Steaming Stuff in His Trail

Everyone in North Carolina but the most naive and hardened partisan celebrated a sign of relief as last Saturday the state's pathetic Governor left the office, and if there is any justice, left the state for a meaningless job in the Trump administration.  There he can wallow with the other appointees in deep doodoo.

But before he left McCrory fired off one last lame attempt to lay his troubles at the feet of someone else.  In this case the city of Charlotte is at fault for putting a symbolic gun to the head of government and the legislature by, and this is astonishing, passing an ordinance protecting the rights of the LGBT Community.  How dare they?

Uh Gov, you are doing bathroom patrol duty now, do you know where that finger has been?

HB2 likely played a major role in his election defeat, and he blamed the Charlotte City Council – which passed a nondiscrimination ordinance that prompted HB2 – as well as the LGBT advocacy groups that backed economic boycotts of the state. He called it a “manufactured crisis.”
“I wish I would have been successful in convincing Charlotte not to start this masquerade of an issue, that no doubt had an impact on my future election and on North Carolina in a very unfair way,” he says in the video, adding that he was “unsuccessful in convincing the legislature maybe not to overreact.”

Uh Patty,the reality of the situation is the the members of the Charlotte city council were elected on a platform to pass just such a law. They did what they said they would do, a concept kinda foreign to you.  And you didn't try to convince the legislature not to act, you just went along and sneakily signed the law in the dark of night where you hoped no one would see you.

That McCrory has no future in NC is now evident by what he also did.

McCrory also blasted the ACC for moving its football championship game from Charlotte to Orlando in November, part of the sports conference’s opposition to HB2.
“I thought it was a travesty, and by the way, they didn’t do a good job of filling up the seats in Orlando,” he said. “They were giving away tickets. The ACC had no problem having three football games shamelessly during the hurricane here in Raleigh, which they shouldn’t have done, but they canceled a game for a social issue.”

Yep, in North Carolina you don't blast the ACC and live to see another political day.
