Just days after the furor over Mary Easley's state-paid trip overseas, NC State University says it's given the first lady an 88% pay hike.

The governor's wife teaches law courses and leads a speakers program. Her salary jumps from $90,300 a year to $170,000. NC State says Mary Easley is now doing the job full-time.

She now makes considerably more than her husband. Gov. Mike Easley pull in just $130,629 a year as the state's chief executive.
