Reporter makes appearance on 'The Daily Show'
Posted May 10, 2013
WRAL Capitol Bureau Chief Laura Leslie made an appearance on “The Daily Show” Thursday night for a report she filed on May 3.
Host Jon Stewart used Leslie’s story about comments made by Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller as a chance to remind Democrats that they are “losing women.”
"I didn't know about it in advance, and of course, I missed it," Leslie said. "It's been such a long week at the legislature that I fell asleep before the show. I found out about it this morning from my Facebook friends. My wall blew up like it was my birthday."
Leslie said she's been a fan of "The Daily Show" for years.
"After all these years of reporting, I guess I can now say I've arrived," Leslie said.
Voller spoke to the Democratic Women of Guilford County May 2 at their annual President's Spring Banquet.
Someone from the Guilford County Democratic Party was live-tweeting the event.
One tweet quoted Voller as saying,"The GOP that’s leading us – we don’t know where they’re taking us, but they’re raping us along the way.” The tweet was quickly deleted.
