Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Constitution Ruled Not Applicable in North Carolina

Judge Henry Hight ruled today that the North Carolina Constitution is not the controlling authority that determines law in the state, but instead the Democrat members of the House of Representatives are permitted to make laws and do as they please, no matter what the North Carolina Constitution says.

It is likely the ruling will be appealed, but it is not known when it will be appealed, or if the appeals court will hear the case before the lottery tickets actually go one sale.

Unfortunately, no one even contests that the Constitution was violated -- it's just that no one cares.

The North Carolina Constitution clearly states that any law that raises money for the state is to be voted upon on three separate days. The lottery was not. The only way the judge can claim that the Constitution was not violated is to claim that the lottery isn't bringing any revenue into the state of North Carolina.

So much for any rule of law in NC.
