NC Senator: "Your Untalented Children Get Squat!"


Tim Moffitt

NC Senator Tim Moffitt has the solution for keeping our school children safe: Ban participation trophies. Not making this up. Yesterday, Moffitt filed S430, "Eliminate Participation Trophies," which would actually prohibit local governments from petting their un-athletic kids ... because the NCGOP is all about small government.

Not an April Fool's joke.

Samantha Campbell tweeted:

@TimMoffitt The world is a literal dumpster fire, gun shot wounds are the NUMBER 1 KILLER of children and teens, and YOU are worried about PARTICIPATION TROPHIES?? You have no clue. Are you tone deaf on purpose or simply THAT moronic?

Tim Moffitt represents Henderson, Polk, and Rutherford counties in the Senate. Moffitt had been a member of the NC House representing a Buncombe County district. He was defeated by Brian Turner in 2014 and subsequently moved his center of operations to Henderson, and after Chuck McGrady retired, Moffitt got appointed to fill out his unexpired term. In 2022 he jumped to the Senate seat he now occupies.

Moffitt's remembered on this blog for attempting in 2012 to seize Asheville's water supply and give it to a regional authority which would be more favorable to developers. It was probably that issue which contributed heavily to his defeat for reelection in 2014.
