A Kinston businessman is the latest person to resign who is connected to the Governor Mike Easley travel investigation.
Cam McRae, who owns the Bojangles franchise based in Kinston, resigned today from the State Board of Transportation. McRae is also chairman of the Kinston Indians.
McRae's office tells WITN News that he is out of the country and unavailable for comment.
In his letter McRae says he is resigning because he understands a replacement on the D.O.T. board will soon be named by Governor Beverly Perdue.
Two weeks ago the News & Observer reported that Easley flew on McRae's private airplane at least twice, but that neither men disclosed it as required under state ethics laws.
McRae was first appointed to the transportation board in March 2001 and reappointed to another term in 2005.
