Scott Matthews: ‘Vote ’em out’

June 14, 2013 

Vote ’em out

Of course the Republican-controlled state legislature in concert with the Republican governor will pay no attention to “Moral Monday” demonstrations. They are in control and will do as they please.

I, therefore, urge the leaders of the demonstrations to shift their efforts to getting out the vote in the next election. I know this will be difficult with the coming voter suppression legislation that, make no mistake, will be in place, but it is the only way to change the Republican legislators’ allegiance from ALEC to the people of North Carolina.

In other words, vote ’em out.

Scott Matthews, Raleigh
