This is behavior that civil, reasonable people wouldn’t accept from a child. And now it comes from an elected official in Raleigh. 

Republican lawmakers are attempting to kill a land deal for a new Raleigh park, and City Councilwoman Mary-Ann Baldwin has turned to social media to express her outrage with the help of her dog Jack.

Baldwin on Friday posted a photo on Facebook of her Maltese-Yorkie mix. The dog named for the anti-terror agent from the TV show “24” is relieving himself on a marble column outside the North Carolina General Assembly.

If Councilwoman Baldwin disagrees with legislation, she should make her case in a public forum.
