    A Governor dining with his constituents. Can't have that. Once elected the Governor should live in the Ivy Tower or in his woodworking shop.

    I'd be ore concerned with the potential favors that are implied to Duke through their underwriting a political party convention in Charlotte with an unpaid $20 million "loan"

    Am I missing something here?? Says the meeting was on June 1. Around 7 months ago? Seems this is very old news, But needs to be brought back up for political reasons, Maybe?? Sleazy BS

    May not be illegal, but certainly doesn't show great integrity. Being vague and inaccessible only widens the gap of transparency and cloaking truth. May the good citizens of NC rally to the poles in November and make McSneaky a one term Governor. He has singlehandedly done more environmental damage than I can fathom. Thanks to Mark for the thorough reporting!

    Perhaps it was regarding his year end review and bonus.

    Yeah, I remember some crooks Jim Black, Mike Sleazy, Meg Scott, Be Perdue. Funny they were all Democrats.

    Did Bev Perdue or Mike Sleazy inform WRAL of all of their private meetings? If they had I am sure you would not have exposed it because you are so pro-Democrat. Gov. McCrory has brought us out of owing the Federal Govt. billions of dollars Democrat Perdue caused. He has done a lot of good for this state but you are so biased you will never give him credit for anything. Is Jim Goodnight going to contribute to the Governor's re-election like he has to Roy Cooper's campaign? So much for your left leaning investigations.

    So let's get this straight... WRAL is attacking the governor for doing his job and meeting with one of the country's largest utilities and one of North Carolina's largest employers? The governor meets with companies all the time. But this is the kind of story that happens when your owner donates big $$ to the campaign of one of the governor's opponents, Roy Cooper. If WRAL were really interested in transparency, they should disclose that they donated to Roy Cooper's campaign in their stories. But wait, they don't.

    Oh, by the way, how many environmental groups have met with Duke?

    Why doesn't Duke Energy just move its headquarters to the Governors Mansion since it looks like they own it more than citizens of North Carolina.

    Paying back favors to his previous employer?

    Just a bunch of crooks eating steak dinners on the TAX PAYERS DIME while McCrory gets his palms greased up ........................
