North Carolina's Latest Disgrace: Iconic Airport Chief Fired at 72
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (TheStreet) -- It's not just North Carolina's right-wing Republicans who are wackily dismantling key components of the state's infrastructure.
While the Tea Party team in Raleigh exploits its newfound dominance of state government to destroy North Carolina's reputation as an enlightened, moderate beacon of the New South, the Democrats in Charlotte, the state's biggest city, are also busy, spitefully mismanaging the state's most important transportation asset.
Now it appears that Democrats in Washington, where former Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx took over as Transportation Secretary in July, are lending them a hand.
