While I'm not sure it is specifically noted in the revised draft By-Laws for INC or not, I do believe that the board in years past has adhered to a policy of not taking sides regarding elected political office holders.
And correct me if I'm wrong but didn't INC file as a not for profit (or similar term) earlier this year with the Secretary of State that prohibits taking political positions such as signing petitions or advocating for them against an individual (versus speaking up for a particular issue or proposed bill)?
Lobbying for or against a political figure such as Senator Burr definitely is something that other organizations have in their mission statements, but I'm not sure if it fits in INC's.
(deferring to the INC board who knows better)

Subject: [durhamenviro] Fw: Ask Senator Bur to give up his public health insurance coverage - Petition
As a member of Congress, Senator Richard Burr receives cadillac health insurance coverage subsidized by taxpayers.
Yet, Senator Burr is opposed to any public plan for healthcare. He insists that government healthcare is inferior. If it's so inferior, Senator Burr, why have you glommed onto it.
Sign the following petition to let him know that North Carolinians want him to walk his talk and give up his government insurance.
The petition is sponsored by the BlueNC blog, which can be found here:
