Governor Perdue can’t catch a break.
Today should have been a big news day for her: North Carolina winning one of the 10 “Race to the Top” selections.
That’s a big step forward in school reform. And, by the way, one of the most significant and least recognized achievements of the Obama administration.
But that story competes with headlines about her campaign being fined $30,000 for not reporting flights in the 2008 campaign.
Elections Board, Highway Patrol, SBI (not under her, but do people know that?). It’s hard to climb out of the muck in Raleigh.
