Weekend Videos of Candidates

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 10, 2008

Richard Bernier has been a busy guy this weekend.

So far, he has released two videos of his travels this past Saturday.
His first video was of an interview conducted by Don Yelton of NC Governor Candidate Fred Smith, and this latest one is excerpts of his travels with Dr. Carl Mumpower as he campaigned throughout the NC-11 District. Both videos are available over at WNC Citizens Blog.

Perdue, Moore used offices for campaigns

Posted by Thunder Pig on February 2, 2008

The state auditor has found that Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue and State Treasurer Richard Moore — both Democratic candidates for governor — used their state offices to campaign.In a news release and report today, State Auditor Les Merritt, a Republican, said that state policy allows public employees to make reasonable personal use of state-provided Internet access. However, he found activity in both offices that rose above reasonable personal use to a level of active participation in political campaigns.”Let’s remember that when state resources and personnel are used for political campaigning, it’s the taxpayers that get stuck with the bill,” Merritt said.The audit found “significant” evidence of campaigning within the treasurer’s office. It found some evidence of campaign activity in Perdue’s office and also the potential for abuse of state resources.

Par for the course with North Carolina Democrats…which is why Hunt never had a chance for a national office, and Easley won’t either. Too much corruption in North Carolina state government.
