The head of North Carolina's Republican Party says two top aides to Gov. Beverly Perdue should resign because of poor performance.
North Carolina GOP Chairman Tom Fetzer said Monday that Correction Department Secretary Alvin Keller should step down because the state still has too few parole officers a year after the Perdue administration promised to ease the shortage.
Fetzer says Crime Control Secretary Reuben Young should resign for failing to pursue claims that former Gov. Mike Easley ordered e-mail messages deleted to prevent them from becoming public. Fetzer says Perdue can't claim to be a reform governor with the holdover from the Easley administration still in office.
A Perdue spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
