Inside Scoop reports Gov. Pat McCrory signed into law a bill sponsored by sponsored by Guilford County Republicans John Faircloth and Jon Hardister that “allows cities or counties to attach and garnish the wages of a government official if the municipality has been granted a money judgement against the elected person that he has not paid.”

And where would our representatives get an idea for a such a law? Down the road in High Point, where City Council member Foster Douglas owed the city $30,0000 after he came out on the losing end of a lawsuit he filed several years ago.

But —as Inside Scoop reported —the chances of the city ever recovering a dime of Foster’s debt ‘plummeted’ back in March.
