New GOP lawmakers begins term with an apology for his conduct

Wake County school board member Chris Malone, who had told police he was in a relationship with colleague Debra Goldman, issued an apology Friday to unspecified people whom he said he may have “disappointed.”

Malone won a close race earlier this month for the state House 35 seat. He dealt during the last few weeks of the campaign with disclosures that he had told Cary police in 2010 that he had a romantic relationship with Goldman. Goldman had denied they had a relationship.

Malone had said he would discuss the police report after the election. But he didn’t directly mention it in a written statement issued Friday. “I am mindful that we all have an obligation to live up to the highest standards of personal conduct,” Malone said. “To those I have disappointed, I would like to extend a heartfelt apology.”

Malone gave no specific reason for the apology. Malone also said in the statement he planned to resign his seat on the school board Dec. 31. He’ll be sworn into legislative office next month. Read more here.

Thanks, bro!

Republican Chris Malone's bid for the N.C. House received a big boost this week. It came from his brother in the form of a $10,000 check. 

His campaign finance report filed Tuesday shows the contribution from Michael Malone, the president of G4S Compliance and Investigations. (Hat tip to Jonathan Kappler.) State law allows close family members to give unlimited contributions.

Chris Malone, who is a case manager at his brother's company, is campaigning for the House District 35 seat, which was created by Republicans in the redistricting process. State Rep. Jennifer Weiss, a Democrat, holds the seat now but she was put in a neighboring district with Rep. Tom Murry.

The massive donation raises this question: What Christmas gift do you get a brother who just wrote your campaign a $10,000 check? Dome thinks an iPad 2 won't do.
