State Rep. Bill Faison isn't afraid to attack his fellow Democratic candidates, as we saw in the three TV gubernatorial debates.
But at the Tri-District Forum in Salisbury last week he launched into a tirade about Lt. Gov Walter Dalton. (Listen to the audio below.) Faison and rival Bob Etheridge attended the voter forum -- but not Dalton, which is apparently a trend on the campaign trail.
The audio below isn't great. But it starts with Faison talking about Dalton missing Board of Community College meetings in 2009, 2010 and 2011. "The guy's not working. Just like he's cutting you today," Faison said. (The siren about 20 seconds into the tape means his time ran out -- but certainly fits Faison's tone.) As for the claims, it's worth a fact check.
