Feds Issue Subpoenas To Environment Officials

Federal investigators want to know more about four coastal developments assembled by a pair of brothers with ties to former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources confirmed Friday that six current or former agency officials received subpoenas to appear next week before a federal grand jury.

The News & Observer of Raleigh first reported on the subpoenas, which also seeks state documents on four developments put together by businessmen Gary and Randy Allen. One development is Cannonsgate, where Easley and his wife bought a lot while he was governor.

The U.S. Attorney's Office also wants information on how a golf club where Easley belonged got to pump millions of gallons of water from a lake during a drought in 2002.

    Ok, Easley and his wife should pay the price for their foolishness, if it goes to trial and he is convicted. But if you want to lock up politicians then start with George W Bush and Rumsfeld - prosecute them for war crimes and lock them up too!
