NC Official: All Campaigns Goofed On Air Travel

North Carolina's top election monitor says an investigation into the 2004 and 2008 campaigns for governor found Republican and Democratic candidates had problems reporting the value of private air travel.

State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett said in a memo released Friday that all gubernatorial campaigns using private aircraft struggled to report them accurately.

Bartlett said there was no evidence any politician tried to sidestep laws requiring the reporting of campaign support.

The state elections board earlier issued $100,000 in penalties against former Gov. Mike Easley's campaign committee for failing to report several dozen flights he took over several years.

    "Goofed", why not use the correct word "lied"?
