Easley Attorney Makes Unusual Request To NC Board

The personal attorney for former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley has made an unusual request to the State Board of Elections -- please send Easley's case to prosecutors if necessary.

Thomas Hicks gave closing statements Thursday to the board, which is investigating Easley's campaign committee and the state Democratic Party.

Hicks said Easley told him to ask board members to send the case to a prosecutor if there are questions whether laws were violated. Hicks said otherwise the public will believe "Easley has slipped one over on the board."

Easley and political ally McQueen Campbell gave different testimony this week about campaign-related flights Campbell piloted for Easley.

The board also could issue fines or exonerate the party and the committee.

    "Oh no" says "br'ere Mike" "please don't throw me to my good friend the Wake County DA." Come on Mike, we see all through this. Most of us are smart enough not to be fooled by this!!

    Even a 3 year old can see he is being "slippery."

    I like Mike. I hope that he's cleared. A "special request" in layman term means "wink wink in returning a favor." Whose among you have Mike's back.
