Nope, not that Pope.

The Pope that bought N. Carolina.

Apparently, as part of the Koch/ALEC agenda.

"North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber on Monday confronted the man who he says is responsible for pushing policies that have been devastating poor and minority communities in the state.

After a press conference announcing plans to picket retail stores owned by Art Pope, the businessman himself stepped in front of cameras to defend his companies before coming face to face with Rev. Barber. Pope serves as Gov. Pat McCrory’s (R) state budget chief and is a close ally of billionaires Charles and David Koch."

Nice to identify the enemy.

Too bad it's such an uncommon practice.
