North Carolina State Board of Elections and the Realtors case

AP has a report on a recent meeting of the North Carolina State Board of Elections.

State Board of Elections Chairman Larry Leake didn’t want to hear about a new U.S. Supreme Court ruling that opens the doors to more direct corporate and union involvement in political campaigns while he weighed evidence whether the North Carolina Association of Realtors broke the law in 2008.

“I am at this moment in time more interested in what North Carolina law says,” Leake told an attorney last week arguing over how the Realtors used mandatory member dues to fight tax increases on county land sales. “Help me understand that.”
