Longest Serving NC Senator, RC Soles, Involved in Shooting


After years of suspicious relationships, murmurs in the wings, authorities turning a deaf ear or simply not paying attention, arrests, fires, and all manner of speculation, State Senator RC has now been involved in a violent shooting.

The victim, 22-year-old Kyle Blackburn, was shot in the leg and is hospitalized in fair condition. Blackburn is a law client of Senator Soles. He served 1 year, 8 months for felony breaking and entering, and was released in June of 2008.

Authorities say another client, BJ Wright, was with Blackburn at the time of the shooting, as well as Wright's girlfriend. Wright was released from prison couple weeks ago. WWAY reported last week that Senator Soles gave BJ Wright at least $8,000 while Wright was incarcerated.

This comes on the heels of allegations from another former client that Soles had molested him when he was 15, a story later recanted.  It also is in the wake of the a former client having his house set on fire in the middle of the night who claimed that Soles had given him tens of thousands of dollars in cash and even purchased a corvette.

How far will this bizarro story go and what do his fellow Democrats in the senate think?  Methinks they'll be awfully quiet for a while.  Read more here on WECT or here on WWAY in Wilmington.  WRAL finally decided that Soles was worth a second glance and even described him as a Democrat.

Politically, there are many, many implications for the entire state's democrat and republican leadership in the senate resting on whether Soles leaves the senate now or sometime next year.

    so how is it that the guy that is telling me I can't defend myself with a hand gun, can defend his family with a hand gun. I am a Veteran of 25 years, i have a home. What a hypocritical bunch of BS. Senator, I strongly suggest you become a pro gun advocate instead of a wolf in sheeps clothing. You are a liar, a two faced politician and I guess you feel your family and self protection is above my rights. Damn you for being a two faced asshole

    who do you think you are Sen Soles? Much more important than the average American citizen. Let's take your gun away and list your address on the net.

    Just more hypercritical BS that the Left shovels out on a daily basis. Do as I say not as I do and everything will be just fine. Get ready it's coming , the Dept. of Homeland Security are stock piling millions of rounds of ammo for some reason? Anybody want to take a guess? When you gut the constitution and start gun confiscation some of us may have the ball's to fight back. All I can say is get ready "IT'S COMING"!!!!!!

    I tend not to drop many responses, however after reading through a bunch of comments on Longest Serving
    NC Senator, RC Soles, Involved in Shooting – Civitas Review.

    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it look like a few of these responses look like they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you post a list of all of your social community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Judging from his voting record in the senate in regards to "gun control", RC is yet another political official (who was elected to office to serve those who pay taxes), to promote himself to a super race that is above the laws he himself helped and/or attempted to legislate… Basically, his actions are saying: I feel there should be gun control as long as the gun being controlled is not mine… and i will take that other health care package… no… not that one… the one only government officials are entitled to… i wouldn't have that health care we shoved down the rest of the country's throat if they doubled my retirement…
