|Attorney General Roy Cooper|
Bottomline: the company has decided to stay and complete its expansion in North Carolina. Why? Not because of our "Carolina Comeback" governor, though Squishy wants to claim the credit. No, it was because of our Democratic Attorney General. "Roy Cooper absolutely pushed us to stay and fight [the injustice] from within," the Braeburn president said.
Meanwhile, Gov. McCrory's fiction-writers put out a press release taking credit essentially for Braeburn's turnaround and blaming Roy Cooper for driving away business from the state. When the truth is exactly the opposite of that.
And now the governor's prevarication has been exposed by a WFAE report. Once the governor's "yarn" was exposed, his press office suddenly clammed up about their claims, while the president of Braeburn Pharmaceuticals had plenty to say.
