New Bern Lawyer Surrenders At Wake Co. Jail

Two people with close ties to North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue have surrendered at the Wake County jail on charges related to campaign finance violations.

Both were quickly released Wednesday on $50,000 unsecured bonds.

Perdue family friend Trawick "Buzzy" Stubbs Jr. of New Bern faces felony charges for providing more than $28,000 in undisclosed flights on a private plane to Perdue. Stubbs was the law partner of the governor's deceased first husband.

Juleigh Sitton of Morganton recently resigned as director of the governor's Western Office. Sitton was indicted on two felony charges Monday, accused of accepting $32,000 in secret salary payments from illegal campaign donations when she worked for Perdue's 2008 campaign.

Former Perdue campaign finance director Peter A. Reichard was also indicted. He was released on bond Tuesday.

    WRAL has printed 6 stories on this topic. WITN has printed half that.......I wonder why. I guess they want to protect the beloved democratic party and good ole Bev. Nice news channel, borderline proganda when dealing with politics. Don't worry WITN, with the internet, it's easy to get the full story, and at least WRAL figured it out, maybe you should to

    Where is Beverly Perdue now? She accepted the money; she's just as guilty, if not more so. She should have known the rules about contributions. Is she just going to let the people go down alone?

    An attorney working for the campaign knows better. He deserves the maximum penalty for cheating the system. That statement applies to anyone regardless of political party alignment.

    She knows nothing, her hands are clean, yet she's the one who benefited from the crimes.
