Party On

Kudos to the N&O for digging into overseas trips taken by N.C. lawmakers. But in the story today, no mention is made of the party affiliation of either the N.C. Transpo Secretary or the head of the DMV (both of whom took trips to London and are refusing to release records about those trips).

At the very least let us know who appointed these guys (wasn't it Mike Easley, Democrat?). If there is a pattern of abuse by one party in our state govt., don't you think it is the obligation of the N&O to reveal the name of the guilty party?
