Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued the following statement Friday:
“A week after he illegally and unethically attempted to withdraw North Carolina’s voter ID casefrom the U.S. Supreme Court, and on the same he day he appointed a former convicted felon to lead the N.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission, Gov. Roy Cooper has brazenly defied an order of the State Court of Appeals by attempting to name a chair of the State Ethics Commission that no longer exists.
“Cooper’s repeated unethical actions make clear why he sued to block the new bipartisan board that would have replaced it and is attempting to maintain total control of ethics oversight of elected officials, and we are conferring with our attorneys about appropriate options to hold him accountable for violating this court order.”
