#hayesscandal: Did conspirators already have mole in place @ NC DOI pre-Causey bribe attempt?


The wording of the indictment  (start on page 7 and read through section 43 on page 9) would  appear to suggest that :




So, the plan — reportedly –was for Causey to hire Lindberg employee and former Chatham County GOP chairman Palermo to replace (or supervise) this employee that was apparently giving Lindberg so much grief.  But, an apparent monkey wrench surfaced:



Wow.  The highlighted text in section 43 would appear to suggest Lindberg was confident that another senior Department of Insurance manager — already in place –was standing by to do his bidding.  To take care of his business.


Some associates and I did a little sleuthing.  All of the possible suspects for “Division Head 1”  were from the pre-Causey era.


Ladies & gentleman,  I believe this is the part of our show where former Insurance Commissioner, beneficiary of Mr. Lindberg’s financial generosity (and current state Democrat Party chairman) Wayne Goodwin may have some ‘splainin to do.



(As a sidebar, where in the hell is the State Employees Association?  This has all the earmarks of good ol’ fashioned bullying of state employees.)

  1. Where does one go to find a copy of the entire indictment! Pacer? Charlotee nc federal court or somewhere else

  2. Excellent work here. You’re doing more digging than the well-funded media.

    I imagine Goodwin’s posse’ may be one of the future batches of indictments that Causey was alluding to. Reading the entire indictment of Hayes- it is very clear that Lindberg was not the kinda guy to give large amounts of money without seeing to it with brute force that his demands were met. Not to mention the extent of the scheme as it relates to his donations in Florida.

    I imagine you picked up on this one as well but I think it’s obvious Dallas Woodhouse put out that over-the-top cheesy as hell tweet professing his admiration and love for Chairman Hayes in a calculated bid to appear shocked and blindsided when the following day’s indictment hit the papers. One can not possibly imagine the executive director, who testified in front of a grand jury just months ago, had no knowledge of the awaiting news.

    I’d like to do some digging on Lindberg’s recent $1M donation to HBCU scholarships named in his “honor” which this year were scheduled for award.

  3. Godwin is up to his ears in this. If the Wall Street Journal is correct, Lindberg bilked several insurance companies to get his big money. Why would any candidate or any committee want to be associated with this money in any way?
