The NC State War Heats Up

Emails released by North Carolina State University show that former North Carolian governor Mike Easley (D) was involved in his wife's hiring at the University.

NCSU's Chancellor James Oblinger resigned earlier today, the latest casualty in a string of resignations that resulted from Mary Easley's hiring in 2005 and her promotion and a substantial 88% pay raise, even though it seems no one has been able to precisely pin down what she did to merit the increase.

Breaking news is that Mary Easley, who refused to resign, has just been fired by the University.

We shoudl have seen this coming. After all, she has Blago's hair...

More as this develops...

Update: As a friend noted via IM, Easley's saga sounds eerily familar like that of someone with a slightly higher profile, who got a substantial raise after her husband secured a million-dollar earmark for her employer.

Where is the media in investigating that potential scandal?

Yeah, the Michelle Connection was quite obvious. IF you know that story. Almost no one does. Whenever one speaks to an Obie you must presume such ignorance and any attempts to remedy that are met with blank stares at best. Michelle stole millions from an inner-city hospital with Barry's connivance, that is the simple state of affairs, these bling-bling Mother Theresas always consume more in lucre than they deliver in gruel for the urchins. By many orders of magnitude.
