North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) "plans to spend up to $230,000 in taxpayer funds remodeling bathrooms in his private living quarters at North Carolina's Executive Mansion even as he demands belt-tightening for public schools and social programs," the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
A spokesman said the bathrooms "were last spruced up in the 1970s, though he confirmed the facilities are still in working order."
Only Rahm Emanuel's "We Have To Close 50 Schools So We Can Give De Paul University $100 Million For A New Stadium" public education policy beats the McCrory story for sheer "You've Got To Be Kidding Me!" effect.
