This site is about the overreaching political power of the NC Association of Realtors flush with money from cashing in your equity 6% at a time, leaving you to pay for growth with property taxes, year after year, with or without cash flow. In the last few years NCAR has pumped millions of dollars into NC political campaigns at the state and local level. They have spent millions more to defeat Local Options for Local Governments with misleading ads.

Public Problems and Campaign Corrections

$818,773.81 - that's the new running total spent by the NC Association of Realtors in trying to defeat local options for local governments. Lobbying reports released today showed that NCAR spent $148,835.51 in the month of July. About half that was spent on media time. Payments were also made to shills Sinclair and Crone through consulting firms Public Solutions and Campaign Connections. The pair recently announced a new poll that has serious credibility problems. Under the Dome tracked numerous errors in the poll, very publicly. Maybe they need new names: Public Problems and, Campaign Corrections.
[Update: I've had my fun with this one but I've since learned that a combination of haste and personal circumstance led to incomplete editing of the original poll data.]
