    That's an incident that happened back in 2009, I believe. And the Senator later pled to an assault charge over the incident. That article does not actually portray all the facts of that situation.

    Here is an article from the N&O about the incident.

    Here is an article from the N&O about the incident.

    Sen. R.C. Soles pleaded guilty Thursday to shooting someone, paid a $1,000 fine, went back to being a senator and left another smudge on the voters' already soiled picture of North Carolina's political leaders.

    Soles, 75, a top-ranking Democrat in the N.C. Senate and the state's long est-serving legislator, copped to a misdemeanor charge of assault and joined other public figures in a parade of recent career-ending scandals.

    His plea spared him a felony conviction for the August shooting of a would-be intruder, a young man who was a former law client, at Soles' home in Tabor City. The senator long claimed that he shot in self-defense.

    Soles will continue to practice law and will finish out his Senate term, his lawyer said. He announced in December that he wouldn't run for re-election this year but said Thursday that he was tempted.

    The years leading up to the shooting, he had "A" ratings from the NRA as well.

    Sounds like internet BS to me.

    I think it is a story. Unfortunately it goes to show that people on our side are also not above exagerations and lies to try to make a point, or a buck. We need to police our own ranks and make sure that these stories are not propogated. This is a valuable thread in that it informs us of some missinformation that is being spread and we can now speak to stop it.
