Sitton, Former Perdue Campaign Worker and Employee, Pleads Not Guilty
By CJ Staff
Mar. 5th, 2012

RALEIGH — Julia Leigh Sitton, a Morganton attorney and the former head of Gov. Bev Perdue's western North Carolina office, this morning entered a plea of not guilty to two felony charges for violations of campaign laws arising from the time she worked on the 2008 Perdue campaign.

Sitton, who's also known as Juleigh Sitton, entered the plea at Wake County Superior Court through her attorney Joseph Zeszotarski.

Sitton, attorney Trawick "Buzzy" Stubbs, and former Perdue campaign finance director Peter Reichard were indicted on felony charges by a Wake County grand jury Nov. 28.

Reichard was charged with funneling $32,000 from Morganton businessman Charles M. Fulenwider through a business Reichard owns to pay a portion of Sitton’s salary with the Perdue campaign. Fulenwider already had given the maximum $8,000 allowed during the primary and general election cycles.

Maybe... I think “suspend elections for two years” Perdue is looking for better opportunities. She has more white house privileges than a lot of gobs... IMHO. Did she ever cave on the two “temporary taxes” and the gas tax? I do not miss the PRNC. I hope you are right there.
