Rep. Tim Moffitt voted for a tax loophole for wealthy lawyers, lobbyists and millionaires that cost the state $336 million a year, while cutting public education to the bone. Did Rep. Moffitt profit from the loophole too?
Progress NC Action wants answers. The "Politicians Gain, Schools Lose Tour" is promoting a petition calling on Rep. Moffitt to come clean and pledge to end the loophole. You can find the petition at www.MoffittGainsSchoolsLose.com.
