Mary Easley Fired, Ex-Gov Husband Involved In Her Hiring

Getting a little local here, it looks like the Mike and Mary Easley Corruption Show is getting even worse

The North Carolina State University Board of Trustees voted Monday to terminate the contract of former first lady Mary Easley.

Easley has resisted calls in recent weeks to step down from her $170,000-a-year job at N.C. State, despite a growing controversy that has claimed the jobs of three top university officials.

University of North Carolina President Erskine Bowles said N.C. State needed to “bring sunlight to this issue,” so he supported the trustees’ effort to separate themselves from Easley.

‘Bought time. This is what Queen Nancy would term “corruption.” Speaking of corruption, let’s expand on that

E-mail communication released Monday by North Carolina State University shows that former Gov. Mike Easley participated in conversations in 2005 that led to his wife getting a job at the university.

The e-mails and other N.C. State records of Mary Easley’s hiring were turned over to a federal grand jury investigating the former governor’s dealings with friends and contributors while in office.

Let’s play “Guess That Party!” Yup, Democrat.
