Auditor Knows Of No Financial Ties To Easley

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's chief auditor knows of no financial ties between her and former Gov. Mike Easley.
Dennis Patterson, a spokesman for State Auditor Beth Wood, said Wednesday that she has found no campaign contributions, business links or other financial ties to former Gov. Mike Easley. Fresh federal subpoenas asked Wood about any "business ventures" or financial ties she had between the Easleys or others mentioned in part of a federal probe.
Federal investigators have sent several subpoenas to a variety of state agencies seeking information about Easley, his wife's job and their travel.
Wood is scheduled to testify before a federal grand jury this week. Subpoenas also asked for documents related to any auditor investigations connected to the Easleys.

    Rats abandoning the ship. Everyone who is anyone are trying to distance themselves from the former chief of the power elite in Raleigh.

    Is that delete button great or what? With what his wife did, don't be suprised that this isn't over yet. A couple that stays together in politics, lies together.
