2:The Glenvllle Democrat/ Pathfinder November 18, 1976 Moore taking it bad Gov. Arch Moore seems to be taking his party's over- whelming defeat in the general election pretty hard. He's acting like a little boy who says if he can't play ball then nobody can. He has refused to meet personally with Jay Rockefeller to iron out difficulties in the transition between administrations. Moore says things can be worked out by staff members from both sides. Rockefeller is concerned about federal funds and grant deadlines and other items of state business which Moore has personally carl"ted out. If Mobre is genuinely concerned about the state rather than his own thwarted political ambitions he should end this stubborn display of partisanship. There's not much the electorate can do against a lame duck executive. However we should recall these vindictive and selfish acts when Moore runs against Jennings Randolph in 1978 or against Rockefeller in 1980.
