#NCSEN: Court ruling makes Rep. Brawley’s monopoly accusation against Tillis stick

State Rep. Robert Brawley (R-Iredell) made headlines back in May thanks to a confrontation with Speaker Thom Tillis.  That confrontation resulted in Brawley losing his committee chairmanship.  (It’s unclear — as of this writing — as to whether Brawley resigned willfully or was forced out of the position by Tillis.)

One of Brawley’s complaints against Tillis was that leadership pushed a bill through the House giving a monopoly to the family business of a certain Republican legislator. That legislator turned out to be Rep. Justin Burr who has family in the bail bonds business.  (According to Thom Tillis’ Senate campaign web site, Burr is part of the Tillis campaign team.)
