The astroturf group Americans for the Prosperous, which wants to free up rich people and corporations from any vestige of the social contract, sent out their no-tax pledge questionnaire to all the candidates in the state House and Senate, and since AFP is essentially a Republican front anyway, only Republican candidates answered the questionnaire.
Jonathan Jordan, the Ashe County creep running against Cullie Tarleton, naturally answered all the AFP questions in the affirmative -- no surprise there -- but Dan Soucek's responses are far more interesting because Soucek refused to sign on to three of AFP's boilerplate positions. Two of those have to do with AFP's lust to amend the state's constitution, and the other one is a pledge not to vote for any tax related to climate change.
Hmmm. Just what is Soucek doing in that closet?
