McCrory Blocks Traffic on All Bridges Going into CD12

Congressman Mel Watt of the 12th District resigned his seat in Congress on January 6 to take his new job as director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

His resignation should have triggered a special election to fill his unexpired term in the U.S. House.

But, no, Gov. McCrory decided that the seat could be filled on November 4, 2014, along with every other seat in Congress. In other words, citizens of the 12th Congressional District will have no representation in Congress for the next 300 days.

Well, after all, those people are mainly black and didn't vote for McCrory. Who the hell cares whether they have a congressman for 2014?
