Like everybody, Beverly Perdue updates her resume from time to time.
In 1991, 1995 and 2000, she rewrote her resume to include more recent jobs and changes to her family. The resumes were then submitted to the N.C. Forum for Research and Economic Education, a nonpartisan political clearinghouse.
NCFREE, as its known, publishes a biannual guide to Tar Heel politicians, "The Almanac of North Carolina Politics," as well as a capitol directory.
Perdue, a state senator and lieutenant governor, is running for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2008. Campaign staffers for her primary rival, state Treasurer Richard Moore, have charged that the resumes are inconsistent.
In particular, they note that the 1991 resume lists Perdue as a schoolteacher in kindergarten, ninth and 12th grades in North Carolina between 1978 and 1982.
A spokesman for the Perdue campaign said the resumes may have been drafts.
Deputy Campaign Manager David Kochman said she was a teacher from 1970 to 1974 of kindergarten, ninth and 12th grades in Georgia and Florida, but not in North Carolina and not between 1978 and 1982.
