Since I am The Watch Dog of The East I tuned in to American In Danger to see what they were talking about. One caller called in and said that one city council member was getting paid to be on the (NCEMPA) North Carolina Eastern Municipal Agency Board. What a lie. The only people that get paid are on the ElectriCities board. And if I am correct only the Eastern board gets paid. The same caller said there is 4 of them (councilmembers) on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount. He said after a while the Mayor will be. The caller was talking about the 4 black members.
Another caller called and said that 4 councilmembers are up for elections this year and they need to be voted out. But after the caller continued to talk I see why she had an attitude. She is mad because she do not want to be annexed into Rocky Mount.
Oh well it is one thing to have a talk show but to allow ignorance and to agree with it is just funny as hell. I have no problem with people standing for what they believe in but the ignorance need to be left out and not just flat out lie about something that can be found out with very little research.
