  • 4/23/13: NCDP Rapid Response Director Asked If Thom Tillis Supported Legislation To Repeal The Lobbyist Gift Ban. The North Carolina Democratic Party’s Rapid Response Director, Ben Ray, tweeted: “.@newsobserver wants to know-- does @thomtillis and @SenatorBerger's GOP resent lobbying rules?  http://j.mp/13sdDbz  #NCGA #NCSen.” [@BenRay, 4/23/13]

4/9/13: The Equal Pay Act Was Referred To The House Rules Committee The Day After It Was Introduced. [HB 603 (Equal Pay Act), referred to committee, 4/9/13]

  • Rep. Deborah Ross Proposed An “Equal Pay Act” For North Carolina, Banning Employers From Paying Workers Difference Based On Gender, But Its “Prospects Are Dim After Its Immediate Referral To The House Rules Committee, Which Is A Common Way For Leaders To Dispose Of Bills Without A Hearing Or Debate.”

Mostly recently busted for lying about where he went to College, Claiming it doesn’t really matter..

Tillis also defended the closed-door meeting he set up with House Republican lawmakers and lobbyist on Video Poker.

Tillis’ Campaign Sent Fundraising Solicitations To Lobbyists Despite Prohibitions Against Donations. “Political fundraising requests continue to flood the in-boxes of North Carolina lobbyists, despite state campaign finance laws that make such donations illegal. At least one lobbyist recently got this email from House Speaker Thom Tillis' campaign, asking for $4,000 contributions by Sept. 14. At the bottom, a disclaimer says the campaign can't take money from lobbyists, but it asks them to ‘pass the information along to any interested parties and recommend support where appropriate.’…‘It feels like a shakedown, really,’ said Bob Hall, director of government watchdog Democracy North Carolina. Such requests pressure lobbyists to push their clients to donate to lawmakers, Hall said. ‘It's enormous pressure on someone who's doing business with someone else. If you want to continue that relationship, you've got to pony up the money,’ said Hall. ‘it’s exactly the kind of pay-for-play system that we tried to clamp down with lobbying reform several years ago.’ Under reforms passed in the 2006-07 legislative session, lobbyists cannot donate to or collect checks for campaigns themselves. But they can still advise their clients' political action committees to do so.” [WRAL, 8/21/12]
