"Companies scorned HB2, but donated to lawmakers who passed it"

We lost jobs, and they are still fucking our population
with this bullshit that's hurting how we are perceived by job creators 
looking to start up or move a business to North Carolina 

Why would Jim Melvin give Phil Berger $7,000?

Why would Vanessa Carroll give Phil $5,000?

Why would the Koury clan give to Phil?

Why would Wells Fargo's Stanhope Kelly give Phil $4,000?

Why would Roy Carroll give Phil $10,200?

Why did Marty Kotis give Phil $10,200?


"Nearly 200 companies joined the fight last year against North Carolina’s House Bill 2, signing on to public protests and affirming their commitment to LGBT rights.

HB2 is good for employers who exploit women.

HB2 is good for business owners who like having sex with the help
by using thier ability to fire them and getting away with it.

HB2 makes it easier to fire pregnant women who slow down productivity.

But some of those same companies, mainly through their political action committees, contributed money to the campaigns of legislators from both parties who voted for the law and the governor who signed it.

HB2 has lost North Carolina thousands of jobs

PACs representing a half-dozen companies gave almost $200,000 to lawmakers who voted for HB 2, according to a Charlotte Observer analysis of campaign contribution reports.

No such analysis by Greensboro's News and Record
of local contributors who gave after HB2 passed

...Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, which criticized HB 2, gave $600,000 to the Republican Governors Association. The RGA in turn spent $3.6 million on behalf of former GOP Gov. Pat McCrory. Pfizer also gave $170,000 to a GOP group that spent almost a million dollars to re-elect Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest, a vocal HB 2 supporter.

No mention of Roy Carroll, Marty Kotis or Jim Melvin
by the News and Record, leaving them off the hook for lost jobs

...Among those that [opposed to the law], a half-dozen PACs had given $192,000 to McCrory and Republican legislators who voted for HB 2 as of Sept. 30, the last reports available. Final reports are due this month.

No mention of Robbie Perkins

New York-based Pfizer, which has a manufacturing plant in Sanford, gave $25,000 to GOP lawmakers through its PAC in addition to the company’s contributions to the RGA and the Republican State Leadership Committee. The RSLC spent $850,000 on behalf of Forest.

...Wells Fargo’s PAC gave at least $61,700 to lawmakers who supported HB 2.

The City of Greensboro still does business with Wells Fargo

Asked about the contributions, Wells offered a statement saying, “Gov. McCrory and other elected officials were well aware of our opposition to HB 2.”

The saddest part of this whole affair other than lost jobs 
is the News and Record's overtly purposeful inability
to call out those local business leaders supporting the economic decimation of our state.

Roy Carroll and other funders of these elected officials 
are advocating bigotry, discrimination and fewer worker rights in North Carolina,
and the news industry isn't pointing out who the real villains actually are behind the curtain.

PACs for Merck, Pepsico and Time Warner Cable also gave to McCrory or legislators who voted for HB 2.

...Workers for at least 33 companies donated to North Carolina’s Republican Party or party leaders after the bill was signed. McCrory received more than $54,000, the Observer found.

Marty Kotis backed a bill which make it easier to fire his own employees,
and pay them less, and the News and Record won't report it

Marty backed John Blust, Dan Forest. Trudy Wade, John Faircloth, 
Jon Hardister, Phil Berger and Pat McCrory, 
who used a self serving bigoted political stunt 
to eliminate thousands of jobs in North Carolina

Marty gave money to about all of City Council,
and the News and Record won't report it

If any City Council members take any more money from Marty, 
or have their signs on his properties, or ads on his billboard, 
they are just as guilty as Marty and Tony Wilkins

...HB 2 has been blamed for the loss of jobs, sporting events and millions in lost visitor spending..."

Consumers who could be objecting with their wallets 
are being prevented from the opportunity to do so by the News and Record.  

Marty Kotis hosted a John Blust fundraiser at one of his restaurants after HB2's passage.  

He supports Phil Berger and the rest of our local delegation.  

Marty supports HB2 and is going to make more money from it
by being able to fire pregnant women etc... 
and the News and Record won't point it out.

Those who funded the legislators who voted for the bill
now want to look like the good guys after they were the bad guys
which cost the state of North Carolina millions,
and the News and Record is letting them get away with it

By supporting Trudy Wade,
Roy Carroll appears to be saying he doesn't want any gays in downtown Greensboro
or anywhere near his properties
or living in his apartment complexes because they are gay or trans

and the News and Record didn't report it
