Update: The NC GOP's cash man has been arrested in Florida:
Chase Egan Burns, 37, faces charges in Florida that include racketeering and conspiracy, according to The Associated Press. Burns was arrested Tuesday. Court documents say Burns claimed money put into his gambling machines would be donated to the charity Allied Veterans, but the group received less than 1 percent of the proceeds, The AP reported.
Words like "disgusting" and "revolting" just don't seem to cover it.
Bret Burns is the district attorney for Caddo County and the brother of Chase Burns, who operates an Anadarko-based company, OK Coin, that supplied games to an Interstate 40 travel plaza in Hinton. Hinton and Anadarko both are located in Caddo County. Burns said he didn't know his brother supplied electronic games within his district and said his brother has told him most of his business is in Alabama and South Carolina.
And soon to be in North Carolina as well, apparently. Why else would some guy from Oklahoma give $55,000 to NC Republicans? And considering the timing, the NC GOP probably asked him for it, so they could spend another $110,000 in "in kind" contributions for Pat McCrory, since Chase and his wife Kristin maxed out on their contributions directly to Pat. If you'll excuse me, I need to take a long, hot shower.
