    We have our very own Pat McCrony who's in not nearly enough hot water down here.  His connections to Duke Energy are probably the most likely point of vulnerability among his own party.  He would have been Duke Energy's legal counsel at the time they were stashing all that coal ash all over the place, and his dickless "proposal" for getting them to clean their mess up is so obviously a sham that even REpugnicans are raising eyebrows.  Add to that his "patronage" of high-level staff at DHHS whose only qualifications seem to be that they worked for his campaign in 2012, and he's on pretty shaky ground.

    But he doesn't have a transcendent scandal like Penn State hung around his neck.  If something similar were to happen with, say, the UNC basketball program, he'd be in a world of hurt.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
