RALEIGH, N.C. - The N.C. Republican Party is helping Gov. Pat McCrory recruit like-minded applicants to fill hundreds of state government jobs.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (http://bit.ly/16ChVxY ) the party's executive director sends a weekly notice to county GOP leaders advertising available state jobs.
Todd Poole says he started sending the emails in August, when he took over the party's daily operations. The spreadsheet of available jobs and a link to a website listing openings goes out to about 130 officials and associates.
Poole says the McCrory administration didn't ask him to send the emails. The governor's office didn't respond to the paper's questions about recruitment efforts.
A spokesman for state Democrats says the party didn't send a weekly email when the party controlled the governor's mansion under Gov. Bev Perdue.
