|Gov. Roy Cooper should not have
to put up with the detestable Phil Berger
How many special sessions now has Berger called and participated in and yet failed to call up Cooper's appointments for confirmation? There are ten pending Cooper appointments to the North Carolina Utilities Commission, the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System Board of Trustees, and the State Board of Education.
The governor says there's no reason for the delay other than "an obvious effort by the General Assembly to undermine my administration's ability to ensure faithful execution of the laws." Berger sez, "Oh, you wanted those people confirmed? Why haven't you been begging me to take action, then? It's a good governor who begs. Maybe we'll get around to those confirmations some day -- say, January -- but right now we're busy overriding your vetoes. And, by the way, eat shit!"
Sue their asses, Governor. It's the only action they still fear.
