Easley probe includes former Southport Mayor


SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) -- A federal investigation into former Gov. Mike Easley now includes Southport's former mayor.

A federal subpoena shows investigators want information about a contract Norman Holden had with the Department of Transportation. Holden served as a liaison between the DOT and businesses and citizens from 2002 to 2008. It paid him about $129,000 total.

Investigators also want information about Easley's Southport home. The subpoena also listed former Southport Police Chief Jerry Dove and Wilmington DOT office head Allen Pope as "relevant parties."

Nice part time gig

if you can get it. Average $18,000 a year for probably a part time job.

Let's cut through the transparency in government and extend the investigation to the current administration as well.

As the layers of this "onion"...

are peeled, sphincters are getting tighter, and tighter, and tighter.
