The amendments on the North Carolina ballot are misleading and detrimental, according to a panel the UNC Institute of Politics held on Oct. 29.
The panelists included: N.C. Attorney General Josh Stein, retired N.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Orr, Allan Freyer, an economist and the director of the Worker’s Rights Project at the N.C. Justice Center and Professor Irving Joyner, who teaches law at North Carolina Central University and focuses on criminal and civil rights legislation.
There has been conflict over the presentation of the amendments on the ballot, Stein said. Although Stein did not support Gov. Roy Cooper’s second lawsuit, he still feels the descriptions are not accurate.
“It’s like being told that you are buying candy, and you go home and you are eating cat food,” Stein said.
