INVESTIGATOR: FLIGHT INQUIRY HINDERED

"The lead investigator on a probe of North Carolina gubernatorial campaign flights say she was told not to interview some witnesses tied to Gov. Bev Purdue.

State Board of Elections investigator Kim Strach said board chairman Larry Leake told her to wrap up without interviewing Perdue's longtime chief of staff and campaign manager Zach Ambrose, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday.

Strach said she wanted to ask Ambrose about an unreported Perdue flight to a Michigan fundraiser in September 2007 and about Ambrose's audit of campaign flights..." (balance of article may be found on Page B3 of the Asheville-Citizen Times, Saturday, July 17, 2010 edition)

I'm shocked! I thought that Larry Leake and the NC Democratic Party were as honest as the day is long. LOL

Oh, so since they are both Democrats you believe they should fight with each other like the teabaggers and rebubbakins do.

You conservaloons shore do know how to rustle up a mighty storm in a teapot.

Make out like it's a major scandal, when there ain't even enough for a taste of juicy innuendo.

Obligatory trashy imagery of the rebubbakin, conservaloon, and teabagger types is hereby noted.

Shadrach, Pete, and N.Young---
IANAL but I find that so many people who hate lawyers have been called and found guilty or liable to pay up or suffer a big loss due to some wrong they've done their fellow man. At the bar of justice these lawbreakers have been exposed for their lies and hypocrisy. They've been held to account and are bitter. Not that Democrats are above reproach, but so many Republicans and Libertarians I find are hypocrites because they preach personal responsibility to others but sneak around like cat-burglars, swindlers, chiselers, ponzi schemers, or pickpockets and do the very opposite of what they preach.

I know some honest Republicans. They are few and far between.

Larry Leake brings credibility to the NC State Board of Elections. Look at the Easley hearings and over 200 other complaints since 1993.
You do not know what you are talking about, facts are available through the NCBOL.

Leake is a pretty sharp guy. I remember his dad, Eldridge, or AE, really well, who was an Industrial Commission Judge and very fair. He was sharp too, and a good Democrat and law partner with Bob Swain and Judge Willie K. McClain.

I have had dealings with Larry and his physician brother. You had better be circumspect and watch your back and keep your eyes open, have all your "i's" dotted and "t's" crossed. I fought with Leake over a stolen Harley Davidson motorcycle when he represented a crooked insurance company called Shelby Mutual of Ohio (genuine slimy sonsabitches), and I took the case to the NC Supreme Court and back to a jury and finally won. Leake fought like a Tasmanian devil all the way, but I finally kicked his and Eddie Harrell's arses and collected. You had to watch that firm with hawk eyes. It used to be known as Uzzell and DuMont. I could tell you some hare-raising stories about that law firm.

Larry started out as Harry DuMont's gopher.

The only thing about Larry is that ugly rug. It looks like some greasy little flea-bitten varmint crawled up on top of his head, lay down, and died and is slowly decomposing.
