The power behind puppet Pat McCrory
While Pat McCrory will privately take the Governor’s oath of office behind closed doors, locked inside the State Capitol away from the public, McCrory’s Puppet Master will be sworn in at a public ceremony as North Carolina’s new Shadow Governor and the state’s real chief executive. North Carolina’s new Shadow Governor, Art Pope, will be inaugurated in public on Saturday at a swearing-in ceremony outside the State Capitol in Raleigh. Even though Pat won the election, we all know the real power resides in the hands of Shadow Gov. Pope.
