N.C. Senate Democrats Also Opt for Swill

Not to be outdone, apparently, by the N.C. House Democrats in accepting gratuities from industries they may be called on to regulate, N.C. Senate Dems will be taking over what the Raleigh News & Observer calls one of Raleigh's "finer" restaurants tomorrow for lunch ... the entire tab for same to be picked up by, yes, Smithfield Foods with some help from the N.C. Medical Society, N.C. Academy of Trial Lawyers, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, and Duke Energy. (Story here, but you'll have to scroll down to see it.)

We don't care if this sort of thing is technically legal. It also technically smells to high heaven.
