McCrory’s lawyers withholding evidence until after election

Trying to ensure four more years of corruption and incompetence:

Real Facts v. McCrory, et al. – The Governor’s lawyers agreed to allow WBTV to intervene as a plaintiff in the case about McCrory’s travel records. The Governor’s Office and the North Carolina Department of Public Safety have asserted that they produced all records requested, but most were heavily redacted based on whether they were deemed a personal or political activity or might compromise McCrory’s security. Baddour directed the parties in the lawsuit to confer and attempt to agree on the scope of the issues presented by the case, and he tentatively scheduled a further status conference in the case (and in the other cases) for next week.

Charlotte Observer v. McCrory – The newspaper filed suit Oct. 7 over a request for email messages and other communications related to House Bill 2. The Governor’s Office subsequently produced a large number of records Oct. 17 but nothing since. McCrory’s associate general counsel told Baddour they were reviewing thousands of emails and hoped to produce an additional batch of records early this week. Tadych suggested the office turn over all records already vetted, regardless of a complete review.

I find it extremely frustrating to read about this the night before Election Day, especially considering how many other ethical bullets he’s dodged since 2012. 😦
