Tim Moffitt's campaign is swimming in cash from outside sources. In 2010, his backers included Art Pope, the mogul from Dollar General and ALEC, the shadowy extremist group that seems determined to take the "public" out of public education.
This year it's something called the Carolina Business Coalition Education Fund, which does not reveal its donors. Fortified by his cache of corporate money, Moffitt has already begun running television ads that tout his hometown roots, but a record of cutting aid to education and his efforts to plunder both the Asheville water system and the Asheville Airport suggest that his loyalties lie elsewhere.
