McQueen Campbell testified that Gov. Mike Easley used campaign cash to make repairs to his Raleigh home.
Campbell testified that Easley asked him to take care of repairs to his home on two separate occasions. When Campbell later asked for repayment of thousands of dollars for doing the work, Easley encouraged him to bill his campaign for flights.
"I just remember understanding what he was saying, for me to bill the campaign for unbilled flights to cover those amounts," Campbell said.
"The Easley campaign and its contributors actually paid for the repairs to Gov. Easley's home," Leake said.
Campbell then testified that Easley received $5,400 from his insurance company to cover the costs of those repairs. The insurance money didn't go to Campbell, and it is unclear who kept the money.
