Business as usual for the ethically-challenged Governor:

State officials say LendingTree has received a state grant of nearly $4.9 million and will more than double its presence in North Carolina’s largest city.

McCrory resigned from the board of Tree.com, LendingTree’s corporate parent, after winning the 2012 election, and then later received a six-figure payout while serving as governor. He has insisted he did nothing improper or illegal.

He can “insist” all he wants, but this makes Tammany Hall seem like a bunch of schmucks in comparison. Why is this not leading the news cycle? Here’s a clue, waiting until November 9th to dig into this story is not a good idea.
