And they were HAPPY TO DO IT!!!
Two Republicans, and three Democrats: Jim Martin, Jim Hunt, Mike Easley, Bev Perdue and, strangest of all, Pat McCrory.

If you were in earshot of Raleigh Monday, -- it is now FRIDAY AFTERNOON and WHO has published (or why NOT???) . . . or seen this in their Local NC Press??? -- you might have heard: The state’s five living former governors—two Republicans, three Democrats: Jim Martin, Jim Hunt, Mike Easley, Bev Perdue and, strangest of all, Pat McCrory—gathered to denounce a pair of blatant legislative power grabs masquerading as constitutional amendments.
The legislature, in its depressingly partisan march to the ballot box, has finally evoked a moment of bipartisanship from our former governors.
