There is much that can be said, but the fact that anyone in Columbus would honor Senator Soles is troublesome. Do democrats really want to be close to this odd fixture? Why not invite former Gov. Easley?
Former state Sen. R.C. Soles Jr. will be honored Thursday by the Brunswick County Democratic Party, according to a press release from Ouida Hewett. The celebration is in honor of Soles’ 42 years of service representing Brunswick and Columbus counties in the N.C. House and Senate, the release says. Mary Mitchell of Holden Beach will be present to represent Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton, who is running for governor.
No word on whether Frog Strickland, BJ Wright, Kyle Blackburn or any of the other deeply troubled men from RC’s recent past will be present or even mentioned. Probably no mention of the ColCor scandal either. RC likes his skeletons in his past. . . . maybe in his closet. Also a great opportunity for the media to ask aspiring Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton if he thinks RC represents NC values since he will also be represented at the dinner.
