North Carolina Judge Blocks Attempt To Strip Governor Of Some Powers

Roy CooperA North Carolina judge is temporarily blocking a law that would have limited the power of the state's incoming governor. Democratic Governor-elect Roy Cooper defeated incumbent Republican Pat McCrory in November, in a tight race.

"Since 'the announcement,' I have spent several sleepless nights and days in turmoil and agony. I have reflected carefully on both sides of the issue, prayed a lot, talked with family and friends, and searched my soul," Jan Chamberlin wrote in a resignation letter to the choir president and choir members. "I've tried to tell myself that by not going to the inauguration, that I would be able to stay in choir for all the other good reasons. I've tried to tell myself that it will be all right and that I can continue in good conscience before God and man."
