Department of One Hand Washing the Other
Mary Easley has been fired from a $170,000-a-year job with NC State University. It appears that she got the position through the able assistance of her husband, former Democratic governor, Mike Easley, in violation of the normal university job-search guidelines. At least two other NC State officials, including the Chancellor, James L. Oblinger, have resigned in the wake of the scandal.
