Mike Easley was always described as quirky, but charming. Part of the charm was his reputation as a cheapskate.
That was a good quality for a governor in a budget crisis. Now, not so good.
Now he’s charged with flimflamming his campaign into paying $11,000 for home repairs. And maybe pocketing the insurance money.
Surely Easley could afford the repair bill.
And surely Easley’s campaign – which raised and spent more than $10 million – could afford to pay $88,000 for plane flights.
This is a big price to pay for small savings.
