Conservatives, after dismantling public financing system, set sights on N.C. judiciary

The commercial starts like all the political attack ads voters in the swing state of North Carolina are used to seeing: black-and-white graphics, ominous voice-over, newspaper clippings. In less than 10 seconds, though, the spot takes a striking turn. "When child molesters sued to stop electronic monitoring of their location, a law that let us track child molesters near schools, playgrounds, day care centers, Supreme Court Justice Robin Hudson sided with the predators," the narrator says over audio of children giggling. "Justice Robin Hudson, not tough on child molesters." Aside from being misleading and false, the ad signals the next phase in a conservative effort to reshape North Carolina's political institutions.
