“Shanahan took the job when McCrory took office in January. Shanahan took a leave of office from his law practice in May, after being questioned about a potential conflict of interest.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Shanahan had continued to provide legal advice to private clients after McCrory named him to oversee the Highway Patrol, state prison system and other law enforcement agencies.”
So – Smirkey gets a pass on this because Shanahan resigned?
Smiley would have been crucified here. This guy did it for 5 full months !!!! Ethics are involved here, and the lack thereof. This is far far worse than Susi Hamilton’s crap – this guy was providing legal advice to clients who may or may not have dealings with the SHP, state prison and other law enforcement agencies.
This guy’s a piece of crap and the people who talk to these legislators about ethics (including Hamilton) should be fired. McCrory should be investigated for ethics violations as well as it should have been a precursor to taking this job that he resign from the law firm – so McCrory’s team was also at fault.
Gov Liar, Smirkey, or crony should be held accountable.
