NC Senate Bill 47, which would restore partisanship to our judicial elections, has been pulled from the current General Assembly calendar and will be back on the calendar in the July session when the Clown College rams through its redistricting plan.
Sen. Jerry Tillman, the chief sponsor of S 47, "gained support for an amendment to delete the provision that would have killed Sunday afternoon voting," according to Bob Hall at Democracy NC, "so 'Souls to the Polls' faces one less threat. The bill still has a bucket load of obnoxious provisions, from ending Same-Day Registration and Voter-Owned Elections for executive branch offices to permitting corporate donations to political parties."
Sen. Dan Soucek is a proud co-sponsor of this piece of elephant dung, which would simply and clearly reestablish a political litmus test for judges.
The Clown College intends to take care of this last bit of election jiggering in July, at the same time they draw themselves and their Radical Right friends into safe districts.
