The indictment of Ruffin Poole, a top aide to former Gov. Mike Easley, contains yet another vague entry for which Dome could use readers' help. The document describes the expensive 2005 bachelor party for Poole largely funded by Wilmington financier and Democratic contributor Lanny Wilson.
It says Wilson, who recently resigned from the state board of transportation, paid for the $12,000 chartered jet and French Quarter hotel room, as well as "some other expenses."
Dome invites readers to help answer what those expenses were, such as: A Muffuletta at Central Grocery, cover charge for Preservation Hall, tips to the sidewalk performers, 12-pack of beads, 64-oz. beer to go or a Saints souvenir.
