Brian Nick, a former strategist for Gov. Pat McCrory, is leaving his job at a Charlotte law firm to return to the political media company where he formerly worked.
Earlier this year, Nick went to work for Moore & Van Allen, the law firm that had employed McCrory until his inauguration. Nick said he’s returning to Strategic Perception to “pursue some projects that are more political in nature.” Strategic Perception was a key player in McCrory's 2012 election.
He was part of the public affairs division at the law firm, fielding repeated questions in recent weeks about the firm's role in funneling sweepstakes money to political candidates on behalf of Chase Burns, an Internet cafe company president charged in Florida for money laundering and racketeering.
“MVA is a wonderful firm with exceptional people,” he said Tuesday, “and I very much appreciate the opportunity and experience.” --Jim Morrill, Observer staff writer
