Democrat Representative Susi Hamilton, who really doesn’t like tough questions, decided to be on both sides of the fracking issue over the past week. Just a week or so ago, she received the following honor:
State Rep. Susi Hamilton was recognized as one of three “Rising Stars” in the General Assembly by the N.C. League of Conservation Voters.
And then there was this:
(StarNews) A letter was sent to the governor just days earlier urging her to veto the fracking bill. Hamilton’s name was included at the bottom of the letter. “I think that makes it pretty clear as of a few days ago she was against the bill and something changed her mind between now and then,” Morgan said.
Hmm. . she was against it, signed a letter to the governor asking her to veto it and then voted to override the veto?
In a surprise move Monday night, state Rep. Susi Hamilton of Wilmington voted to override Gov. Beverly Perdue’s veto of legislation that paves the way for shale gas exploration through the controversial process called “fracking” in North Carolina.
It was the right vote, but she completely led her base astray on this one. One doubts the StarNews editorial staff will make mention of it. In fact, even the headlines try to spin her vote saying she wanted the film incentives.
Their headline reads: Hamilton breaks ranks to bolster film incentives
Hilarious!!! Spin on, spin on. . . .
