With Dix property an issue, Wake delegation meeting Monday should be hot

Expect an earful about the Dix property deal on Monday when the Wake County House and Senate delegation holds an open meeting.

The delegation meeting, set for 4 p.m., was moved to a larger venue, Room 643, of the Legislative Office Building because of the expected large turnout.

Among those sending out twitter feeds urging people to attend are Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane saying “support Dix Park, wear green, come early to Wake Delegation Mtg. Monday.''

The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday voted to revoke a lease for the Dix property signed by outgoing Gov. Bev Perdue.

Governor McCrory just

Governor McCrory just returned the contribution. It was was from the wife of the CEO taken after he was indicted.

So Governor McCrory returns another illegal contribution from indicted money launderers.

But the real story is will he return the hundreds of thousands in consulting fees he and his fellow lobbyists at Moore Van Allen took from the indicted executives of IT.
And when is the STate Board of Elections going to hold hearings on the illegal contributions. The sitting Lt. Governor of Florida already had the deceny to resign because of the same practices.

These amounts are much larger than the Jim Black situation and he didn't personally benefit to the tune of hundreds of thousands in consulting fees the way Mayor McCrory and his fellow lobbyists at Moore Van Allen did.

Jim Woodward Bernstein, I mean Jimmy Frank - get on this, it sells newspapers - wait how many newspapers a sitting Governor raising his right hand before the State Board of Elections will sell.
