D’Annunzio not a favorite of NC GOP

Tim D’Annunzio received the most votes in the Republican primary for North Carolina’s 8th district, and now continues to the runoff election. Since then, North Carolina GOP chairman Tom Fetzer has said that D’Annunzio is “unfit to hold public office at any level.” Fetzer went so far as to say that if D’Annunzio were elected, “for crying out loud, it would be a disaster” for the GOP as well as for the country. As a result, D’Annunzio is now calling for Fetzer’s resignation.

In court papers from a child-custody battle, D’Annunzio is said to be a “self-described religious zealot” who believes he found the Ark of the Covenant, an artifact said to contain the original Ten Commandments stone tablets, according to Judeo-Christian tradition. According to papers, he’s claimed that the U.S. government is the Antichrist, of which he is now running to become a part.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the 52-year-old millionaire has struggled with drugs and crime in his past. D’Annunzio has called the report “lies and accusations” but declined to discuss the specifics.

D’Annunzio opposes repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ on the grounds that it would “turn our military bases into social experiments.”

  1. I think it sad, that the MSM news continues the misinformation campaign.
    The Democrats have held power in State Politics in NC for 96 of the passed 100 years. The NC Republican party is ineffective. Fetzer and the Bible Belt, would prefer an OLD retired radio broadcaster from Charlotte, named Johnson, who is a RINO, rather than an Italian Catholic who was grown and raised in Philadelphia, a former soldier, a former Golden Knight Parachutist, who got divorced and then who became self made millionaire businessman.

    Please remind your readers, that no divorce is ever amiable, and that the Former Mrs D’Annunzio and her attorney are not running for Congress. Mr. D’Annunzio is fighting a smear campaign, because he is divorced and because he is not a member of the elite NC ‘roll-over’ political party.

  2. Susan,

    You do realize that the problem with D’Annunzio is not that he had a contentious divorce (as you said, none is ever amiable). Rather that he has a criminal and drug history along with the fact that he has some awfully radical sounding religious views.

    Let’s not cherry pick for outrage here. This guy sounds pretty extreme and he will likely only further divide a fractured political system.

    Anyway, why would he want to work for the “anti-christ” anyway?

  3. We don’t usually comment on our own articles, but I couldn’t resist this time. For the record, we are not the mainstream media, by far!

  5. I welcome all who are interested in the truth to go to facebook and research tim d’annunzio
    try this link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/timvote?v=info&ref=ts

    after reading the bio, you have to question why it is that NC is trying to switch the candidate that received the most popular votes with a known RINO.

    and Matt, thanks for your resources. It is always better that truth be told, and all made aware of corruption and distortions.

That endeavor, JS Company, and later JS Industries, Inc. originally focused on manufacturing products related to military and civilian freefall parachuting. This company eventually closed in the early 1990’s due to military cuts and the economic downturn.

    Susan… you are aware this is a gay newspaper website right? I don’t think they have the smae views as you do on Tim DAnnunizio.

    Here is an article they did:
    http://goqnotes.com/6598/anti-gay-dannunzio-advances-to-8th-district-runoff/

  8. yup, and it is highly recommended for its diversity of journalism.
    i know its a gay spread sheet, and all the more reason to point out that the MSM, the AP wire service are continuing to kill the truth and continue to spread misinformation.
    If ANYONE would be concerned about researching and advancing honest journalism, i would assume it would be the smallest news links with the closest ties to their respective communities.
    When we are given the truth we can make good decisions. We can make good choices, We can hire great electorates.

    This is about the guy who won the race, and now a few stooges in the political dynasties want to run a puppet.

    America is in real trouble. It no longer needs corrupted political parties. It needs real citizens, with real talents and real sense of duty FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE, to step up and save the Union.
