Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: CMS and the Law

A little local news to Charlotte -- did you know that the lords attorneys for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg fiefdom have decided that laws just don't apply to the rulers board members? The law says no state employee shall:

(1) Take any active part in managing a campaign, or campaign for political office or otherwise engage in political activity while on duty or within any period of time during which he is expected to perform services for which he receives compensation from the State;

(2) Otherwise use the authority of his position, or utilize State funds, supplies or vehicles to secure support for or oppose any candidate, party, or issue in an election involving candidates for office or party nominations, or affect the results thereof.


However, the board says that the superintendent of schools "may advocate for passage of the bonds using taxpayer dollars." Apparently, according to the kings of the county county board, even though he's paid by taxpayers, he's not a state employee. Well, that is what Democrats do -- make up any meaning for any word that they like.

Oh, but the better part is that the board continued to vote to withhold from the public any and all memos that showed that the board didn't care what the law was. The board continued to attempt to cover up their attempts to blatantly use taxpayer cash, in clear violation of the law, to lobby for passage of bonds so they could get more cash. I wonder if they did a cost-benefit analysis (at taxpayer expense) to determine how much taxpayer money they should spend in order to get more taxpayer money.

A portion of the memo:

Thus, it MUST TAKE A [political advocacy] POSITION WITH REGARD TO THE BOND PROPOSAL AND SUBSIDIZE THE POSITION THAT IT TAKES [with tax dollars]...." [added]

The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the growing needs of the bureaucracy. Keep that in mind -- the school system exists to spend money and expand -- NOT to educate anyone, anytime, or anywhere.

Have I mentioned that public schools are just plain evil before? Oh, and since all this is in support of more taxes and expanding government; and since the state of North Carolina is ruled with an iron fist by Democrats, there's no need to expect any more from this. It's only illegal if Democrats don't like it; and it's never illegal if it helps Democrats. Laws are for suckers.
