As you probably recall, Republican lawmakers in North Carolina passed legislation to limit the governor's powers shortly after Roy Cooper's victory over former Governor Pat McCrory was certified.
The law would have required confirmation of Cooper's nominees, but the law has been blocked by a panel of superior court judges.
The decision by the judges was released an hour before senators were scheduled to question Cooper's pick to lead the department of military and veterans' affairs, but he was absent. Committee co-chairman Sen. Wesley Meredith read a brief statement in which he said senators would still get answers about the qualifications of secretaries and the meeting abruptly ended.
State Republicans have responded in an absurd manner, accusing the judges of overstepping their constitutional authority. State House and Senate Republicans also accused the court of "legislating from the bench" and said they should "hang up their robes and run for a legislative seat."
Projection is the only thing Republicans are good at.
The law will remain blocked until at least tomorrow when a new ruling is expected.
