Why didn't Trump appoint McCrory? Leaked documents show 'red flags'

McCrory "refused to concede" the 2016 election. The file cites a Huffington Post story.

McCrory "signed legislation removing an estimated 170,000 jobless workers from the unemployment benefit rolls." The file cites a Washington Post story.

He "signed legislation mandating a 72-hour waiting period before an abortion." The file cites an MSNBC blog.

He signed HB2, "banning transgender people from using bathrooms that match their gender identity." The file cites a pair of Huffington Post stories.

After a coal ash spill, he was criticized for having "close ties to Duke Energy." The file cites a (Greensboro) News & Record story.

And, lower on the list, a 2016 Charlotte Observer story that described McCrory as having thin skin.


In that story, former Republican Rep. Charles Jeter, a supporter of McCrory's, described him this way:

"He can't fathom that anyone would question his motives," Jeter said. "And he (has) a tendency to take criticism personally. He's done it with the press. He's done it in the legislature."
