The Predictable Karma of #Shutuppery: Will Democrat Sue Jeanne Bonds?

Posted on | January 8, 2014 | 7 Comments

In case you’ve forgotten, Jeanne Milliken Bonds is a North Carolina Democrat operative who was implicated in the #Shutuppery efforts against @SisterToldjah and @LadyLiberty1885 last year. Now it turns out that a former Democrat candidate allied with Bonds is declaring bankruptcy and threatening to sue Bonds:

A former Democratic candidate for governor and state lawmaker has filed for bankruptcy protection.
The Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing will allow Bill Faison, a personal injury attorney, to restructure debt related to his Durham law firm, Faison and Gillespie.
In an interview, Faison said he expects to pay his debts in full, which are listed at more than $7.1 million. . . .
Faison represented Orange and Caswell counties in the state House for four terms before making a bid for the Democratic Party nomination for governor in 2012. He came in a distant third in the party primary. . . .
The court documents also indicate that Faison may file a legal claim against Jeanne Milliken Bonds, a Democratic political consultant and business partner.
Faison and Bonds, a former Knightdale mayor, planned to launch a political television show that never materialized under a company named Live Wire Media, formed shortly after the Democratic gubernatorial primary in May 2012.
Faison refused to comment about the Live Wire arrangement or his relationship with Bonds, saying it was part of the pending litigation. Bonds consulted for Faison during his gubernatorial campaign.

Is Jeanne Bonds an Internet troll or a campaign consultant? Well, she’s a Democrat, so I’m not sure the difference matters much.
