First Slice 5-13-13: N.C., GA GOP love local control... until they don’t

Plus, Ted wins in court


What do Georgia and North Carolina Republicans have in common? They both like screwing over Democratic-controlled local governments! (On that same note, why aren’t state lawmakers pushing to reform Gwinnett County, which has wrestled with corruption charges?)
