She has hired guard dog lawyer, Marvin Schiller, with whom this blogger has personal experience and personally likes and respects. Because Mrs Easley has retained Mr. Schiller, the citizens of North Carolina have every right to cling tightly to their pocket books.
Schiller knows how to win a case, does through research and has successfully sued the state of North Carolina, in at least one case, for the betterment of her citizens and retirees.
Your blogger looks for Mrs. Easley to hold out for an extremely lucrative buyout, setting herself up for life, so that she and "dearest Mike", can go down to Cannonsgate (near the home of this blogger) and enjoy their golden years, while their friends fall around them like houses of cards.
Congratulations Democrats. Thank you imposing Governor Michael Easley on our State, twice! You've just cost us even more money, that we don't have.
North Carolina, NC State University, and everyone surrounding the former Governor will all lose. The big exception is his wife, who will come out smelling like a rose, depending on the perfume she chooses.
