GOP Head Wants 2 Top Perdue Aides To Quit

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.

    Elect me, a common man, to be your next Gov. I promise you everything. no matter what party you belong to or what your views are. Remember, a vote for me is just a typical wasted vote.

    ......Beverly Perdue should resign because of poor performance. They're just playing "follow the leader".

    That governor of ours needs to be the FIRST to go, but I will say, the other two need to go as well.
