A congressman who represents eastern North Carolina announced he'll be the first federal elected official to join the controversial
"Moral Monday" protests in Raleigh.

Congressman G. K. Butterfield says he will join local chapters of the NAACP and thousands of supporters Monday for the next weekly protest at the North Carolina general assembly.

In a press release Butterfield said, "There's a time to legislate, and there's a time to demonstrate. The republican-led legislature's attack on the disadvantaged and less fortunate cannot be allowed to continue."

Hundreds have already been arrested during the peaceful protests. Governor McCrory has called for a stop to them.
