— A spokesman for the Speaker of the House in North Carolina said an investigation has started into actions by Burlington Republican Cary Allred.

Bill Holmes said other members told House Speaker Joe Hackney that Allred was intoxicated Monday night and had hugged a 17-year-old female page.

Hackney has asked the House sergeant at arms to look into the matter, Holmes said.

    "Therin lies your problem...You read the paper....No one reads the paper anymore because the liberal slant in the media. Just ask the "Noise and Odor" they will be in bankruptcy soon enough..Unless of course Oblama bails them out..."

    Therein lies an example of what some say when they can't think of a relevant response -- blame the "liberal media".

    "Much to do over nothing..."

    If its true that he was drunk, do you think that's "nothing"?

    "I've had several run-ins with Mr. Allred. He come across as being a big attention-seeker, and he's can be extrememly rude."

    Sorry for the grammatical errors. What i meant to say is "he comes across as very obnoxious and rude." As far as the allegations of him being drunk... i wasn't there.

    "Based on what I read in the paper today, Rep. Stam, one of his fellow Republicans, ......"

    Therin lies your problem...You read the paper....No one reads the paper anymore because the liberal slant in the media. Just ask the "Noise and Odor" they will be in bankruptcy soon enough..Unless of course Oblama bails them out...

    Hackney is pulling the standard DB democrat move...He is best ignored.

    LOL. High ranking dems sitting in prison and now looks like a republican is going to join them for kissing a girl on the cheek and arguing ***horrors** on the floor! Can't we all just get along?
