North Carolina Shrugs as Its Senator Scrutinizes Russia

Jim Morrill, a political reporter at The Charlotte Observer who has covered Mr. Burr since that first Senate race, described him as a candidate so unflashy he drives himself from one event to another, adding that he once produced a whiteboard from his trunk as a prop for one of his speeches.PhotoDemonstrators protesting North Carolina’s bathroom bill last year.Credit Chris Seward/The News and Observer, via Associated Press“Most voters couldn’t tell you a whole lot about him,” Mr. Morrill said. “He’s got a high profile now with his committee and he just got re-elected, but I think most people would be hard-pressed to tell you anything specifically that he has put his stamp on over the years.”As she waited for the train home in downtown Charlotte on Wednesday, Kristi Watanabe, 22, said she did not know much about Mr. Burr, including that he is in charge of an important Senate inquiry. “You know the name, and that’s about it,” she said with a shrug.Whether residents hope investigators hurry for the sake of finding answers or eliminating distractions, many North Carolinians are not keeping close tabs on Mr. […]

Chasing Justice Book 1 of the Piper Anderson Series Danielle Stewart Genre: Suspense Publish Date: November 3, 2014 Publisher: Danielle Stewart Seller: Danielle Stewart Piper Anderson has been given a fresh start in the picturesque town of Edenville, North Carolina. But her plans of settling into a normal life are derailed when she witnesses a prominent judge in her community committing a violent assault. Running from her own past and fueled by a passion to make the judge answer for his crimes, Piper is forced to decide if she’ll play by the rules or achieve justice in her own way.  Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she’s increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can’t deny how safe she feels when she’s in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more.  For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?  […]
