RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina's elections board is hiring a longtime FBI agent involved in recent corruption and campaign finance investigations.
The State Board of Elections announced Tuesday that Chuck Stuber will join its investigation team next month. Stuber is a 28-year FBI veteran and Raleigh native who played key roles in the probes of former House Speaker Jim Black and Gov. Mike Easley.
Board Executive Director Kim Strach says Stuber will help the agency fight voter fraud and locate campaign finance law violations. Strach told lawmakers last month the board would examine possible voter fraud cases after a multi-state crosscheck of voter registration records.
Stuber is also an attorney and certified public accountant.
