The scandal du jour that lasted into the weekend was the mystery behind who leaked a strategy memo ostensibly distributed via email by Blueprint North Carolina, a nonprofit partnership of liberal advocacy groups. It included advice on how to bring down GOP leaders, using inflammatory language.

Smith Reynolds Foundation based in Winston-Salem -- publicly disapproved of the memo, Blueprint’s executive director, Sean Kosofsky, said it didn’t come from his group. He suggested dirty tricks were to blame, although he didn’t exactly say Blueprint disagreed with the strategy.
