Judge slams Belk over child's $5,000 political contribution

How did a 7-year-old contribute thousands of dollars to elect George W. Bush?

When Bill Belk, the millionaire grandson of the Belk stores founder, wrote a $5,000 check from her account for the RNC Presidential Trust in August 2000 .

Judge Erwin Spainhour criticized the move as a an "inappropriate, egregious use of the minor's funds" on Thursday. Spainhour ordered Belk to repay nearly $131,000 to his daughter's custodial account after citing repeated examples of what he called Belk's misuse of the money.

Belk told the Observer last year that the contribution for his daughter - and similar ones for his sons - was designed to help them by electing George W. Bush, who went on to cut taxes on investment income.

Are you really that dumb? In the first place, it isn'y about a political contribution, it's about the fact that this sociopath stole from his own kid. And in the second place, people get prosecuted for murders older than 20 years and get convicted - ever hear of the Green River Killer? Which is exactly why there is no statute of limitation on murder (or any other felony in NC).

Bet you would say that if it were your mother/father/sister/brother who had gotten murdered.

Think about your statement.

Isnt this Belk thing just a diversion to take the heat off so many black murdering thug scum and do a twinkie on a white guy? Belk is old news.

What about the real case? 4 dead white cops and 2 black scab trash murderers. This is a trend.

Make sure there are NO blacks on the jury that is all white only or little pos will walk after black cop Fant intetionally saved his life. Fant knew what he was doing.

Forget Belk. Totally a pc diversion.
