Can’t trust Turner

Who would trust progressive candidate Brian Turner? What legislator would want to work with him? He is running against Rep. Tim Moffitt for N.C. House District 116 (Buncombe District 3), and he has already made several poor and underhanded decisions.

Turner has secretly recorded his so-called “friend,” County Commissioner David King (District 3). Secondly, Turner photographed himself with children in public schools and posted them on Facebook (his own children attend private school). Wisely, he has since removed the pictures.
And Turner trumped up charges against Moffitt for things allegedly said during a meeting that Turner requested and a witness said were not true.  Turner did this for publicity and political advantage only, but his scheme will backfire.

Why would anyone want progressive Turner to represent them in Raleigh when he is so untrustworthy?  Perhaps Moffitt should sue Turner for slander, libel and abuse of process.

Even though he is running in Buncombe County District 116, not Asheville’s 114th, Turner is really Asheville progressives’ candidate. Every member of Asheville City Council donated to his campaign, and 80 percent of Turner’s contributions have come from outside his 116th District, most from Asheville. County voters, be forewarned.
