RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory says two 24-year-old campaign staffers landed senior-level jobs in his administration because they were the most qualified applicants, beating out older candidates.

But the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, where Matthew McKillip and Ricky Diaz got big promotions and raises, has been unable to provide any evidence their positions were advertised or that other applicants were considered. The agency also says there are no written descriptions or requirements for their jobs.

McKillip is paid $87,500 a year as a chief policy adviser. Diaz makes $85,000 annually as the agency’s communications director.

A review of descriptions for similar government positions shows McKillip and Diaz do not meet the academic or experience requirements to qualify for even entry level positions in the areas they oversee.
