Local politricksters aren't likely to want to read it but Greensboro's own political blogger George Hartzman is now making news state wide as his ethics complaint against Senator Phil Berger Sr picks up steam.
What's really groovy about this is that beginning in 2015, many of the same ethics rules that apply at the state level will also apply at the local level giving Team Hartzman and Jones a new tool in the battle against corruption at the local level. You see, George writes it up, I notarize it and the complaint is filed easy-pezy.
That's right, the Greensboro City Council might be able to ignore George Hartzman and myself but if they ignore the State Ethics Board it's fines and jail time.
Bet they didn't see that coming.
