McCrory Campaign Also Forgot Two Helicopter Flights

Pat McCrory's gubernatorial campaign failed to report two helicopter flights valued at $3,300 taken in the waning days of his unsuccessful bid.

The manager for McCrory's campaign said Tuesday the October 2008 flights were uncovered as the State Board of Elections wrote candidates for governor since 2004 asking for more information about their air travel.

Manager Jack Hawke said the campaign filed an amended report dated last week to report the flight expenses. He said one flight invoice never reached the campaign. There was never an invoice issued for the second flight.

State Democratic Party executive director Andrew Whalen said McCrory's refiling raises more questions beyond allegations he discussed at a news conference earlier Tuesday focusing on one of the flights.

    this has two possible answeres reguardless of the parties. the campaign is grossly imcompetent or they have direct discrespect for the rules and will ask for forgivness later after they pay their fine if caught. you be the judge, especially since easly was beat up badly for the same violations. we have got to do better picking leaders. both parties are terrible.

    Say it ain't so!! It must be forgetfulness, an oversight, an honest mistake! How will Henry explain this? Will Henry stop talking about the others not declaring flights or will he throw McCrory in the, "They must be corrupt" argument also. Come on Henry, this should be the talk of the town now!!!
