RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Walter Dalton’s gubernatorial campaign has asked North Carolina election officials to investigate whether Pat McCrory’s campaign reported unlawful payments for a flight for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to attend McCrory events in September.

Dalton formally complained Wednesday to the State Board of Elections, as attorney Jerry Meek questioned if almost $2,500 of contributions from a Fayetteville couple for the flight are actually illegal corporate donations. Meek also says there’s nothing in McCrory’s latest campaign finance report about Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who attended McCrory events, too.

McCrory campaign spokesman Brian Nick calls the complaint frivolous and the campaign activities were handled according to state law. Nick said the Republican Governors Association was responsible for Walker’s flight.

The board’s executive director says the complaint will be considered after the election.

What a Hypocrite, Dalton flies all over the state on board three different state owned aircraft, making campaign stops all along the way at the taxpayers expense. Pack your bags Dalton, you are done come next Tuesady.

Bev may take little Walter to the woodshed if he keeps this line of questioning up. I doubt she wants another review of her campaign finance activities. There have already been a number of prominent businessmen called on the carpet for misdeeds during her campaign and her predecssor’s. And there are others who hope the light of day does not peer too closely on their activities.
