The Ties That Bind

Governor-elect Pat McCrory has not quit his job with Moore & Van Allen, a Charlotte law firm that lobbies state government. And he's never been open about what he does for those boys, though he's not registered as a lobbyist in Raleigh. He's "senior director of strategic initiatives," which sounds like a mouthful of obfuscation meant to conceal more than it reveals.

According to the News&Observer,
Moore & Van Allen lobbyists represent outdoor advertising, technology and real estate interests with matters before the state, as well as the American Petroleum Institute, which is pushing to allow fracking in North Carolina.
Yeah, we got that. We know whose interests Gov. McCrory will be looking out for.
