A trio of former supporters of North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue are due in court on charges that they obstructed justice during an investigation of financial activities related to her campaign.

Wake County District Attorney Colon Willoughby says due in court Wednesday are long-time Perdue family friend Trawick "Buzzy" Stubbs Jr. of New Bern, fast-food restaurant owner Charles Michael Fulenwider and Robert Caldwell, both of Morganton.

Caldwell and Stubbs are charged with felony obstruction of justice. Fulenwider faces a misdemeanor count.

Stubbs and Caldwell are charged with hiding the source of money used to pay for private planes made available for Perdue during her successful 2008 campaign.

Grand jurors said Fulenwider was involved with funneling $32,000 to secretly pay part of a Perdue fundraiser's salary during the Democrat's campaign.
