So what's Paul Foley up to these days?
Senate leader Phil Berger had slipped Foley's name into Senate Bill 694, which is being considered this week in a special session in Raleigh. According to language that Berger inserted, Foley was to serve out the unexpired term of Dan Barrett on the State Human Resources Commission, serving until June 30, 2021.
The Winston-Salem Journal began asking questions, and presto! change-o! Phil Berger's office suddenly discovered that “that name was included by mistake and will be removed when the bill is heard in committee later this afternoon.”
