Myrick staffer Weatherman now helping her son

Hal Weatherman, longtime chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick of Charlotte, is managing her son’s campaign for lieutenant governor, Charlotte Observer staff writer Jim Morrill reports.

Weatherman joined Raleigh Republican Dan Forest today making the rounds of the General Assembly.

Forest, 43, is expected to speak at Saturday’s state GOP convention in Wilmington. He’s one of at least two Republicans who have announced for the post.

Weatherman had been with Myrick since her first year in Congress in 1995 and served the last 12 years as her chief of staff.

He left in February to become national communications and marketing director for Act! for America, a nonprofit group focused on national security and what it calls “the assault of radical Islam.” He has since left that job.

Myrick is a dangerous extremist - and so is Weatherman

Myrick and Weatherman are professional Islamophobes - people who incite fear and panic by reciting a litany of exaggerations about Muslims.  Myrick ought to be ashamed of herself, and the people should oust her from office.  Myrick's son is no better.  Extremists have no place in government.
