A former trustee at UNC-Chapel Hill has run afoul of the law for illegal political contributions to former Gov. Mike Easley and Marc Basnight, who heads the state senate.
Rusty Carter, a Wilmington businessman and big Democratic fundraiser, has pled guilty to making illegal campaign donations.
Carter served for several years on the UNC-CH trustee board, to which he was appointed by Easley, his fraternity brother.
Andy Curliss has the story.
