A political group is seeking $8 donations to send state senators "pee cups" after the Senate approved a bill to drug test welfare recipients.
"We will tell NC General Assembly that if they are going to require drug tests for North Carolina residents, then they should pee first," says a fundraising pitch from Action NC, a group opposing the Republican legislative agenda.
Republicans managed to dodge an amendment Monday to require drug testing for lawmakers, the governor and the Council of State. But the bill's sponsor, Sen. Jim Davis, said he would take a drug test.
Action NC seemed to acknowledge the light-hearted nature of the fundraiser, writing "one good political stunt deserves another."
The pitch: "Send a pee cup and a message to your elected officials: $8 sends a cup to your state senator; $16 sends a cup to your state representative and state senator; $32 sends a cup to Gov. McCrory, the Lt. Governor and both of your representatives; and $160 sends a cup to the General Assembly and statewide officials."
