Governor McCrory: Roy Cooper Should Refuse His Taxpayer-Funded Salary

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     After Attorney General Roy Cooper admitted he does not intend to uphold his sworn and legal obligation to defend North Carolina's common sense voter ID law in court, Governor McCrory called on Roy Cooper to forgo his salary and reimburse taxpayers for the cost of hiring outside counsel to do his job for him.

    "Roy Cooper is against common sense voter ID and is now refusing to do his job to defend our laws, so he should refuse his taxpayer-funded salary," said Governor McCrory. "If any North Carolina citizen decided not to do their job, they would no longer have a paycheck. Roy Cooper should not be held to a different standard. Roy Cooper's refusal to do his job is costing taxpayers money, so his office must reimburse taxpayers immediately."

    Roy Cooper has supported requiring the use of a photo ID to buy Sudafed in North Carolina and approximately 33 other states have a voter ID requirement.
