Fortune 500 CEO versus Unfortunate 1 Amendment

by Jeremy Hooper
Rogers Jim"If this amendment passes, we're going to look back 20 years from now, or 10 years from now, and we're going to think about that amendment the same way we think about the Jim Crow laws that were passed in this state many, many years ago."
-Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers, speaking to Charlotte Observer reporter Taylor Batten on the subject of North Carolina's discriminatory marriage amendment

Though I hear the Vote For Marriage NC campaign is undaunted by the prospect of distancing itself the Duke Energy CEO's services, since that campaign's prevailing interest is in keeping locals in the dark anyway.
