It’s Friday afternoon, no time for heavy lifting. But Daily Views has one last bone to pick before the whistle blows.
Former House Speaker Jim Black, D-Mecklenburg has paid $500,000 of his million-dollar fine for accepting illegal payments from campaign contributors, mostly in cash received in men’s bathrooms.
He paid the money to the Wake County School system. That’s where he was convicted, and that’s what state law requires.
Wait a minute. The sin took place here.
But Raleigh gets the money?
