Probe Into Governor Easley's Property Continues

The probe into whether former governor Mike Easley benefited from a crystal coast developer continues today.

Easley accepted a 137,000 dollar discount on a waterfront lot in 2005, months after his administration granted environmental permits to the developer of the subdivision in Carteret County, that's according to the News and Observer today. The paper says Easley did not report the 25 percent price cut from RA North Development on ethics forms. Easley's attorney, also the mayor of Beaufort, did not note the lower price on the deed when it was registered with the county.

    Bill, that is an especially good one, referring to your comment: "even a blind pig finds an ACORN now & then".

    I guess Roy Cooper and the rest of the administration are blind. How comes no one but the News and Observer can find out any info. I do not mean to beat up on Democrats, but good gracious. Even a blind pig finds an acorn now and then.

    Appears to me he was in cohoots with Barney FRANK, Chris DODD, and ACORN. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely! Maybe John EDWARDS can be his lead attorney???

    I can't imagine why any one would take the ex-Governor to task over things like this (or getting his wife the posh job at the university) Don't you know that NC politicians are allowed to keep all they can steal!!!

    Sounds like a coverup all the way around. He never imagined that he would be investigated, nor did he think anything about doing this. Next we need to look into Bev's affairs and finances.

    Of course the attorney wouldn't note the lower price -- that would have tipped off people that he got an unethical discount AND lowered people's property values in and around Beaufort (Carteret County). Did Mr Former-Attorney General think he had covered his tracks sufficiently? Man, I bet Sleazley wished he had never ticked off those N&O folks!
