    Americans for Prosperity is pushing a "Right to Work" constitutional amendment.

    Woodhouse says AFP doesn’t doubt that the GOP-run legislature and North Carolina’s newly elected governor will uphold the law. But, he says, “fringe elements opposed to worker freedom continue to press for changes towards more forced unionization.”

    The Koch Brothers-funded AFP has become an increasingly influential force in the state’s politics, with the ascent of the Republican-dominated General Assembly over the past two years.

    I guess they have worn out the old gay-bashing thing, so they need a new boogeyman - the unions.

    For those of you wondering about the big union threat here, NC ranks #50 in the nation in unionization, a whopping 3.2%.
