WORST MEMBER OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT COUNTY COMMISSIONER
BILL JAMES

Staff Pick

It gets old giving James this award, and it’s not as if there aren’t other strong contenders, but this was a particularly rancid year for Bill. He wasn’t content to garner national publicity for denouncing all gays as “sexual predators” (which he called “good press for Charlotte”), or get into a public fight with a local gay newspaper about “predators” in the parks. The self-described Christian also supported “forcing” CMS to privatize more services, but only if the private companies don’t have to offer pensions or benefits. His weirdest mental spasm came when he unleashed a graphic description of what should have been done with bin Laden’s body: Put it on display in the U.S., let Americans pee and crap on it, after which it would be eaten by pigs. Calling Dr. Freud — someone’s id was working overtime this year!
