In a candid exchange on Facebook with Truth or Dare, Speaker of the House Thom Tillis and Representative and National Republican Committeeman David Lewis defended Arthur Williams publicly once again and inserted themselves unnecessarily, once again, into our local House race. Tillis then deleted this blogger’s comments as well as some of his own, saying that Truth or Dare’s posting of these comments represented behavior that diverted attention from more important issues. Tillis then banished this blogger to the land of un-friends.
In the posts, David Lewis compared Arthur Williams to Ronald Reagan and Tillis defended his intrusion into the NC6 race. Probably realizing that he’d stepped into it once again, Tillis removed certain comments from the thread, including my comments and some of his own, and un-friended me. Fortunately, technology being what it is, Truth or Dare captured the full exchange before it disappeared from Facebook. It is posted below for your reading pleasure. You can still find parts of these comments on Tillis’ personal FB page, at least for now.
Note, this was captured via three screen shots. This exchange took place beginning at 10:30am, Sunday, July 15th and ended just before 11am.
