This is rich. Fred Eshelman, one of the millionaires funding the attacks on Steve Goss and Cullie Tarleton, also happens to be on the Board of Trustees at UNC-Wilmington, and he's quoted in the Wilmington Star News now worrying that a new General Assembly in Raleigh might "slash and burn" their way through the state budget next year. (Hattip: Chris Fitzsimon)
'Course, having lots of money and plenty of influence with the projected new Republican members of the General Assembly gives Mr. Eshelman ideas about that: "He said the period between the election and the new session may be the time for trustees to make in-roads to convince decision makers about UNCW's importance."
Riiight. If you can buy an election, Mr. Eshelman, you can certainly buy a little special treatment for UNCW.
Hope you Tea Partiers are paying good attention to the kind of crack addicts you're helping put into power.
