This blog is dedicated to helping Catherine Evangelista - former Cary Vice Chair of the Wake County Democratic Party in Wake County, NC - decide to run for public office so the rest of Cary or Wake County will see what a delightful person she is to work with. Catherine was removed from office by a 16-5 vote of the Executive Council of the NC Democratic Party, yet she still claims she did nothing to deserve it.

Catherine's "white knight" - "Crazy" Gene Messick

Catherine Evangelista has some interesting friends and associates. Some of them are identifiable people who hide behind aliases. And some of them are just fake "sock puppets" - like SJ Patel who tried to flirt with me on line one time.

A friend has an interesting e-mail that came from SJ Patel with an interesting signature on it - I hope she releases that for public consumption really soon! Had I known who SJ Patel really was, I would have heaved all over my nice new MacBook Pro! ;-)

But one of Citizen and now Candidate Evangelista's best friends seems to be Robert Eugene Messick who claims also to be fighting for the soul of the North Carolina Democratic Party. But Gene Messick doesn't live in NC - he lives in VA.

I shall refer to Gene Messick as "Crazy" Gene because of all the things that Gene Messick has attacked me on - he has never claimed anyone who has called him "crazy" is wrong about it.

So why does he bother so much with the NC Democratic Party when he lives in VA? One of his past e-mail and blog rantings describes the legal proceedings he went through a few days after the SEC meeting in June 2006 where the sheriff's came to remove him from his home, then he had to appear in court for a hearing where he wasn't allowed to question the witness against him.

At 10:30 that night, I was evicted from my home and business by 2 armed Sheriff’s deputies. I was told the Clerk of Court could authorize my re-entry to get business records. Next day, the Clerk whom I had helped elect, said that was a lie, and if I tried, I’d be jailed. He also promised I’d be appointed a lawyer to defend me, another lie. A week later, the day after Independence Day, an anonymous Judge in an empty Rockingham Co Courtroom stole all the business and personal property I owned in NC.

Now nearly 3 years ago, not one single item has ever been returned. I was never charged with anything. I was never convicted of anything. I was never told what this closed hearing was for, nor what it’s consequences could be. I was told, repeatedly, that if I attempted to save my business, I’d be thrown in jail. Now living in poverty, I cannot afford a lawyer. To this day, DA Phil Berger Jr refuses to prosecute any of the many thieves involved. Thousands now know this story, including everyone in the State Legislature, those who passed whatever law was used to “legalize” this larceny.

I can't believe that the same Gene Messick who e-mails all the NC Legislators, members of the SEC and anyone else he can find an address for can't contact the NC-ACLU and get them to represent you on what you claim is an obvious violation of your constitutional rights?

From the way he describes that hearing, it sounds like someone (perhaps his wife at the time) took out a Domestic Violence Protective Order, so it makes sense that Gene (who claimed he didn't have a lawyer) wouldn't be able to directly question his wife given the situation. A post at BlueNC described pretty much the same thing.

Information available on the Internet does tend to back up that appearance. According to - a "Robert Eugene Messick, Sr." was charged with violating that protective order four times over the last two years:

Charges: 3872

Charges: 3872

Charges: 3872

Charges: 3872

A 3872 is violating a Domestic Violence Protective Order.


It's starting to look like "Crazy" Gene Messick left NC because he couldn't stop stalking a woman who I can only hope is now his ex-wife? And this isn't anything that has happened decades ago - this happened in the last two years!

"Crazy" Gene is under a court order not to have anything to do with this woman, so he does the next best thing: he stalks Democrats in NC that he feels have either caused his wife to leave him or caused the Democratic Party to become "progressive" - which means to move on and abandon Crazy Gene just like he feels his wife abandoned him.

And it's not just NC Democrats that Gene is targeting:

He has not been shut up but continues to send emails to any and everyone he can get an email address for and all elected officials in NC and VA. You see Gene has also gotten in trouble in VA for the same behavior that cost him his wife, home and business. He is barred from contacting anyone at Virginia Tech where he was an instructor in stained glass. He disagreed with the Reynolds Homestead and started an email campaign much like the ones in NC. He calls himself a wordsmith but he is just a bitter, broken, and pathetic old man that hides behind a computer. He destroyed his own life and doesn’t care who or what he destroys.

So while "Crazy" Gene's ex-wife has the law to protect her, who protects individual North Carolina Democrats who have been the target of "Crazy" Gene's crazy rants? Many people who are "in the know" ignore the rants and advise others to do so, but other people may not be so lucky. Who keeps these people from being discriminated against based on these rants (losing out on job opportunities) because "Crazy" Gene and his "moon-bat" friend in Cary have a problem with the democratic process used to make decisions in the Democratic Party?

So why does the "moon-bat" pick such a person to be the "white knight" that defends her "honor"?


  1. Great Post, Catherine.
    This lunatic refuses to remove me from his insane spam list(s). As unstable as he is, I assumed he was in trouble w. the law - thank you, Catherine for confirming my suspicions, as you posted.
    I'll be sure to 'pile on' on the legal front. :)
