There Went Vernon Robinson's 10 Commandments!

Just a day after Winston-Salem Councilman Vernon Robinson installed his 1-ton granite Ten Commandments on city hall property without permission, it was gone ... tied to a backhoe & hauled off to a warehouse. (Read about it in the Los Angeles Times, unless you're registered with the Charlotte Observer and want to search for similar coverage there.)

Robinson, who was elected to the City Council in 1997 and is running for the Republican nomination for the 5th Congressional District (against Virginia Foxx et al.), said he didn't get permission because he didn't know the procedure.

He may now be billed for the cost of removing the monument. We're sure he'll think it was worth it ... getting this hot-button campaign issue to prove how much holier he is than any of the people he's running against.
