Mike Easley's Campaign Owes North Carolina $210,000.

Ex-NC Gov. Mike Easley's Campaign Owes $210,000

The campaign committee of former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley has run out of money and owes $210,000 for legal bills and a penalty imposed by the State Board of Elections last fall.

A campaign finance report filed last week by The Mike Easley Committee shows it has yet to pay more than $116,000 in legal fees to two law firms.

The committee also had yet to pay nearly $95,000 of the $100,000 penalty ordered by the board because the campaign failed to report dozens of private airplane flights piloted by an Easley political ally.

Most of the expenses incurred by Easley's committee since last year have been for legal expenses, including those for the election board investigation.
