Grace Ramsey is testifying to the fact that she made an in-kind contribution to the Easley Committee for Christmas ornaments and that the contribution was reported as a different amount. There were 2 different invoices – 2 different dates – 2 different amounts. She has offered that she contributed to the Easley Campaign because Mary
Easley was of Greek heritage – as is she.
The Superior Court has quashed the State Board of Elections supoena for Ruffin (sp) Poole.
Lanny Wilson is now testifying. Mr. Wilson originally supported Dennis Wicker for Governor – but later became an Easley supporter. It was represented to him that it was legal for him to contribute to the Democratic Party after he had “maxed out” to the Easley campaign during the primary and the money would later be used for the Mike Easley Campaign.
Mr. Wilson made a $10,000 contribution to the NC Democraticf Party and he understood that this money would be used to to elect and re-elect state legislators.
