Rep. Lewis took last-minute action to protect friend’s state contract
Pay-to-Play, the General Assembly Way
Eventually, Greensboro's News and Record, who has routinely misinformed and/or misled and/or lied by omission to the public of pay to play by Roy Carroll, Zack Matheny, Mike Barber, Tony Wilkins, Nancy Vaughan, Jamal Fox, Nancy Hoffmann, Yvonne Johnson, the Koury Clan, Jim Melvin, Marty Kotis, Sam Simpson, Mary Vigue, John Lomax, Henry Isaacson, Jim Phillips, George Carr, Dawn Chaney etc... etc... etc... is going to have to write something about all the corruption at the state level which they will claim to abhor, while completely claiming innocence at the local level.
There is no way Greensboro could be as crooked as it is without the help of a compromised press.
Where is the News and Record? "The state agreed to extend prison maintenance contracts to a company owned by contractor Graeme Keith Sr., a McCrory friend and campaign donor."
And the News and Record didn't report it.

Don't expect much from the News and Record on this, as Greensboro's local paper of record is complicit in enabling the same
And the News and Record still hasn't reported it.

Dear departing News & Record reporter Amanda Lehmert
Director of Financial and Professional Services Brands at RLF Communications
Joe, along with the rest of Greensboro's News and Record staff who work for Warren Buffett, who makes money on financial 'Services Brands', chose not to investigate or report on the City of Greensboro's overpriced retirement plan for more than two years, and still haven't, even though the City agreed to lower the cost of the plan with Vangaurd Index Funds.
Now Joe's wife Amanda, who used to cover the City, works for a vendor of the City he is supposed to cover as a journalist, supporting the efforts of the financial industry to overcharge retirement plan participants which her husband refused to report on after he said he would.
Joe told me he would report on the City's overpriced retirement plan and didn't.
I met with the News and Record's Jeff Gauger twice on the subject, he agreed with my contentions, said he would do a story, and didn't, costing thousands of his readers millions per year for the benefit of Warren Buffett.
This is Greensboro, where the public doesn't know shit because our press is as crooked as the crooks they cover with accolades.
