Culture Of Corruption In NC

But, it is not Republican

Former state Rep. Michael Decker today identified House Speaker Jim Black as a co-conspirator in a criminal case in which Decker got $50,000 in campaign checks and cash in exchange for his support for Black as speaker.

Decker made the statement today while testifying at a hearing in federal court. U.S. District Judge James C. Dever III held the hearing to determine whether Decker was getting adequate legal counsel in his criminal case. Decker's initial legal bills were paid for by Black's campaign fund.

Decker has pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge and is helping prosecutors who are looking into Black's campaign and legislative activities.

During the hearing, Dever asked Decker whether Black was a co-conspirator in the case. "Yes, sir," Decker said.

Just politics as normal in North Carolina.
