After several months of wrangling with the State Employee Association of North Carolina (SEANC) over a records request, State Treasurer Richard Moore upped the ante in June by accusing the association of attempted bribery.
SEANC attorney Tom Harris admitted he offered to drop a public records lawsuit the union had brought against Moore if he would agree to endorse House Bill 2758, which would transfer control of the state’s $75 billion pension fund from Moore to a board.
Harris said the offer was not a bribe, but an offer in a settlement negotiation. SEANC called Moore’s allegations “bogus,” adding that Moore’s attorney is a “press-loving showman.”
SEANC’s lawsuit seeks public records to confirm that Moore has not engaged in “pay-to-play” politics by trading investment fund opportunities for political favors.
