This "Mr. Dail" working with DENR agency needs firing too not just suspension without pay for a week. No doubt he was trying to get in on the action if he inquired about his stepdad purchasing some of the "fine" beach property at Cannonsgate seeing that he helped the "crooks" get some paperwork funneled on thru. See it's this kind of stuff that makes me really ANGRY. Why wouldn't this state worker be fired for under-handed dealings??? As a fellow state employee, I say FIRE HIM!!! No doubt, he's dirty too.

Surprise, surprise, surprise, not really. It was brewing for a while probably. He probably deserves jail time too. Get in bed with dogs and you wake up with fleas. Mr. Basnight not long ago wanted Bev Purdue to name Lannie Wilson as Secretary of DOT. Now Lannie has resigned his position from the DOT board. Yep, go on and get out of Dodge Lannie!

If giving money to Easley's campaign in some else's name is against state law why is Wilson not being prosecuted for doing so?

But why didn't the Elections Board do anything about all the stuff he confessed to. At the very least he should have been fired, not allowed to resign. They should have blackballed him from ever holding another state/county job in NC.
The whole hearing was a bunch of people wasting more tax payers dollars and getting paid extra in their pockets to do it.

It seems NC residents love to elect the fox to watch the hen house. Maybe we should vote with our mind exposed instead of our hands because we sure have a lot of borderline crooks in office

People really have no idea how corrupt Easley and his political friends are. I personally was standing on my head to get legislators attention to what Easley and friends were doing. It is just now starting to make the press. Nearly every agency in state government still has friends of Easley in critical roles. Americans have to stop electing the rich and start electing working class people in to powerful seats.
