Duke and the governor

In the wake of Duke Energy’s massive coal ash spill into the Dan River, Gov. Pat McCrory’s office announced that the governor has sold his stock in the utility where he worked for nearly 30 years. The value of the stock was not announced. A spokesman for the governor said the sale “eliminates the often repeated, ridiculous and false, partisan left-wing attacks challenging the intent of our decisions and policies.”
