Cake and cameras, but no McCrory

Except for some TV cameras, Bicentennial Mall in downtown Raleigh was mostly empty on Thursday when Madison Kimrey, a 12-year-old activist, showed up for a meeting with cake, lemonade and – hopefully – Gov. Pat McCrory.

“I didn’t poison it, I promise,” Madison said, gesturing to a homemade chocolate bundt cake. She announced in a YouTube video she wanted to eat cake and converse with the governor about some recently signed laws she disagrees with – namely the voter ID and election law. She also brought a 1,055-page petition she planned to deliver to him asking him for a meeting to discuss the voter ID law, specifically the provision that stops preregistration for 16- and 17-year-olds.

National conservative groups thank McCrory for voter ID law

With lawsuits and criticism greeting Gov. Pat McCrory’s signing of a complex elections bill on Monday, two national conservative groups on Wednesday rushed to defend him.

The Republican State Leadership Committee came out blasting at N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper, who as the top law enforcement official in the state and as a politician, opposed the bill. Not so incidentally, state Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger is chairman of the RSLC subgroup the Republican Legislative Campaign Committee.

RSLC president Chris Jankowski issued a statement saying Cooper had “politicized his role as the state’s top law enforcement officer by lambasting a law that he will be required to defend.”
