RALEIGH — Gov. Bev Perdue called the actions of members of her 2004 and 2008 campaign staff who did not report free campaign flights “inexcusable,” but would not identify who committed the legal violations that led to a $30,000 criminal fine by the State Board of Elections. Nor would she say if anyone has been held accountable for those violations.
Perdue answered questions on a wide range of issues, including campaign finance violations, the economy, the budget, education, economic development, government reorganization, and relations with the General Assembly, at a year-end press conference at the Executive Mansion Wednesday. She invited members of the state press corps to a similar event last year.
