Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in North Carolina

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of North Carolina scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Controversies

2010 burglary

On October 21, 2012, The News & Observer ran a story regarding a police report wherein Debra Goldman, the 2012 Republican candidate for North Carolina Auditor, named Malone, who she served with on the Wake County school board, as a suspect in the burglary of her home in 2010. The source of the police report was unknown and Republican officials questioned the timing of its release so close to the November 6 general election.[8]

According to the report, in June 2010 Goldman called police saying her home was broken into and $100,000 in jewelry, $20,000 in cash and $10,000 in collectible coins was stolen. Goldman said she kept the cash in a "ratty pink backpack" in her bedroom because "she found it very difficult" to get money right after the terrorist attacks of September 11.[9]

Goldman named Malone, who was later cleared, as a suspect in subsequent interviews. According to Goldman, she resisted romantic advances by Malone for several months, while Malone has said they had a "very heated" relationship.[8]

After the news story broke, Goldman issued a statement, saying, “I am continuing my campaign for state auditor, and I am saddened that I have to even dignify these reports with a response. This is all I will say regarding this issue, and I consider the matter closed.”[9]
