Corrupt Charlotte, NC

If you aren't aware of it, Charlotte, NC is one of the most corrupt cities in the United States. We have the highest taxes in the SE United States, some of the worst schools, some of the highest rates of violent crime, and have some of the worst traffic congestion problems in the country. The problem is, we have a newspaper that doesn't like to talk about it. Thats where I come in. Here's what is really happening in Corrupt Charlotte.

Why Charlotte Voters don't Go To The Polls

The number of people voting and involved in politics in Charlotte-Mecklenburg is at an all time low. The reason being is the political process has been so corrupted and perverted people know their vote doesn't really count. In Charlotte-Mecklenburg its common place to use taxpayer money to pay for a referendum and then do the opposite thing the people voted for in that same referendum. A perfect example is the 300 million dollar Bobcat Arena. Charlotte residents voted resoundingly against building the arena and yet out local politicians ( Lynn Wheeler being the biggest cheerleader ) spent our money and built it anyway. Another more recent example is the School Bonds referendum. People voted resoundingly against giving more money to a school board that has squandered billions of taxpayer dollars and built one of the worst educational systems in America. Yet the County Commission is posed to give them an additional 171 million dollars dispute the overwhelming NO to more money at the polls. Why don't Charlotte voter go to the polls anymore ? It probably doesn't matter if they do. It doesn't look like the people of Charlotte are in charge anymore.
