Soles is no more an embarassment than his fellow Columbus/Bladen county cohorts. Let him be. It's better for him to stay in the shallow end of the gene pool with those who put him in office in the first place, then to have those fishes make their way into civilized society. If his fellow halfwits want to honor him with some useless award, let them have at it. Why does anyone else care!
No!!! RC Soles is an embarassment to NC as well as Former Gov. Perdue for awarding it.
Just another award that now means nothing because of the people that receive it. Like most awards that are given out now the standards have been lowered to where they mean nothing other than you knew the people on the selection committee.
Disgrace and black eye for NC!!
He should not only NOT get any award , he should be in jail . He is a perfect example of how corrupt and influential you can be after serving for so long . He has had runs with the law several times and always seems to come out clean . and even now receives a big fat pension ! PLEase , isn't that enough rubbing it in as it is !
Isn't it enough of an award to get a fat government paycheck with benefits and pension, like no other american gets.
