Fetzer: Election Board Should Track Perdue Campaign Hard

The state Republican Party wants North Carolina's elections board to pursue harder an investigation of all the campaign finances of Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue.

GOP Chairman Tom Fetzer told reporters on Monday he's unhappy with the pace and breadth of the review by the State Board of Elections into Perdue's political committee.

The Bev Perdue Committee last Friday forfeited $48,000 in contributions from nine donors after the campaign became worried the nine were unlawfully reimbursed by their employer.

Board executive director Gary Bartlett has said staff is looking at the donations as well as campaign flights taken by 17 gubernatorial candidates since 2004.

Following a self-audit, Perdue's campaign filed paperwork recently on 31 previously undisclosed flights valued at more than $25,000.
