Dollar is also experiencing what he dished out to a much more moderate Republican incumbent back in 2004, when Dollar was first elected to the House. That was a nasty campaign, and the incumbent, David Miner, who opposed the death penalty and opposed the introduction of Amendment One against gay marriage, was soundly defeated by Dollar.
The Raleigh N&O characterized Dollar's primary assault on Miner this way: "A series of vicious radio ads and direct mailings, funded by well-heeled Republicans such as Art Pope, painted Miner as a tax-raising, homosexual-protecting, criminal-loving liberal."
Sauce for the goose has now become sauce for the gander. Lap it, Rep. Dollar!
