ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Beverly Perdue's lawyer says her campaign made mistakes reporting private airplane flights she took as a candidate but doesn't think a more serious investigation is needed by the North Carolina State Board of Elections.
Campaign attorney John Wallace told the elections board in Asheville on Tuesday that The Bev Perdue Committee was proactive in identifying problems before her 2008 victory and continued to refile expense reports with flights that hadn't been reported.
The board is discussing a review of campaign flights by Perdue and several other gubernatorial candidates since 2004. The review found Perdue's committee failed to report more than 40 flights.
The board could issue fines, call for an investigatory hearing or take no further action.
