Story Time: The Great Tobacco Road Hookup

Some Big wigs at North Carolina State University created a position for Mary Easley. Mary Easley is the wife of “then” Governor of North Carolina Mike Easley. An investigation into the position led to documents showing a link between former Gov. Easley and the NC State job. Before everything was said and done her salary totaled $170,000 a year. The media ended up getting involved and that was the beginning of the end. Mary Easley resigned from her job and the chancellor of NC State resigned as well (i.e. one of the Big Wigs that helped land her the gig). But not to worry……former Gov. Easley skated out of office before any of this came to light. And Mary Easley is not going to end up in jail. It is a happy ending after all.

I hope you enjoyed this story. It was brought to you by The Good ol' boy Network. Hooking up the privileged for years and years and years. It’s not going anywhere!!!

Now why can't I get an hook-up like that? How can I be down?

But we know they have been doing business like this for years. That's not even surprising. The surprising part is that they got caught. Somebody must have gotten po'ed and turned everybody in.
