RALEIGH, NC The North Carolina Republican Party (NCGOP) released the following statement in response to Roy Cooper's latest actions, which have proven his ultimate lack of responsibility as a prosecutor as well as his over zealous behavior with taxpayer money.
"Once again Roy Cooper is refusing to do the job that taxpayers are paying him for. By not defending North Carolina's popular and constitutional voter I.D. law, Cooper is declaring North Carolinians second class citizens with fewer rights to protect against voter fraud. Cooper is still receiving a steady taxpayer funded paycheck even though North Carolina is now forced to pay for outside council to represent the state in this case. Roy Cooper should do the right thing for once and reimburse the state for the cost necessary to hire others to do his job. A good question for voters is-- why give Roy Cooper a promotion when he refuses to do the job he already has?"
