This was there initial disclosure and as you can see it was a rush job to start this Political Action Committee to hand out money to the Greensboro City Council.Some of the general requirements state that in order for political action committees to support or oppose candidates in North Carolina, they must first register with the appropriate board of elections office. As you can see they sent their letter to the state on 10-24-07 well after they started giving out money to the candidates.

Another point is that for a political committee supporting or opposing candidates within a single county or municipality, organization would take place at the county board of elections office. For political committees (PAC's) supporting or opposing 1 candidates for statewide office or 2 candidates in more than one county or 3 a candidate in a district that has more than one county , organization would take place at the Campaign Finance Office of the State Board of Election.

As you can see North Carolinians for Leadership in Government has only given to local politicians so the registration should have been made at the Guilford County Board of Elections not the state.

Here are the results for the year end semi annual report

As you can see that the only Greensboro City Council members who didn't get any money from this PAC were Mike Barber, and Mary Rakestraw.

They haven't filled out a second quarter form but the recipients from the second quarter of the North Carolinians for Leadership in Government are 2 at large Guilford County Commissioners .

Expenditures
Paul Gibson (D) 5-2-08 for $1,000
Kirk Perkins (D) 5-6-08 for $1,000

As you can see this PAC should only be registered in Guilford County not the state. There are plenty of other PAC's that will be getting a closer look at for example Triad Good Government PAC, SIMKINS PAC, and other groups and organizations in this area.This is just the start of looking into campaign contributions and Political Action Committee's of local politicians.If you would like to look at the different campaign contributions on the main page of TRIADWATCH there are links in the left hand side of site titled "Look up campaign contributions.Have a great day.

This is actually old news but I'm happy to see you didn't let it die.

You'll notice that even though I also ran for Mayor of Greensboro in 2007 my name is not among those bribed by Roy Carroll.

Billy your poem was the best on Roy Carroll, i know it is old news but some of the aspects of this PAC needs more scrutiny because if they are only giving in Guilford COunty then they need to be reporting to the Guilford County Board of Elections. Thanks for commenting
