So, the North Carolina State Board of Elections is set to hold hearings on former Governor Mike Easley’s campaign finance irregularities that mostly relate to his use of private planes owned by big time donors.
Talk around Raleigh has it that that the US Attorney already has the goods on the former Guv and will be taking care of business shortly. So, why would the NCSBoE need to have hearings if the Feds are already on the case?
Maybe Board Chairman Larry Leake, an Easley contributor would like the chance to have a little coverage before questions are asked about why his watchdog agency didn’t catch Easley to begin with.
Good luck with that, Larry. Does anybody have that picture of Easley’s helicopter landing in Leake’s yard for a fundraiser?
