Perhaps WWAY could do a story to remind Senator Goolsby what public office he was elected to serve.
YOU ARE A STATE SENATOR ... you are not the local booking agent for the Wilmington Convention Center and YOU ARE NOT an internal affairs investigator for the highway patrol.
YOU ARE A STATE SENATOR!!!
Now, if you were a smart state senator you would have refrained from making any public statements until the Highway Patrol had properly completed their investigation and presented their findings of fact to the Colonel of the highway patrol.
I think Governor Perdue was clear when she stated, "“The policy of this administration is zero tolerance for unacceptable behavior." "The Secretary of Crime Control and Public Safety and the Colonel of the Highway Patrol will take appropriate action upon completion of their investigation.”
Today, even prior to the completion of their due process investigation the highway patrol has released chat transcripts between the two troopers that contains foul language and the threat of inappropriate behavior. And Mr. Senator, if the foul language isn't inappropriate enough for you - Trooper Wyrick LIED when he stated, ""I never made contact with Trooper Smith while en route to the jail until after I verified he stopped her husband." The recently released transcript proves otherwise.
Again, I think someone should remind NC State SENATOR Goolsby of the position he holds and the authority he has been given to represent the people - equally, impartially and fairly. This position DOES NOT give him authority to run local venues or the entire state.
