    I am quite ashamed that these events have produced such unfavorable publicity for my beloved alma mater. It gives the appearance that it is a governed as a banana republic with cash/favor corruptible officials in every corner. My donations are small by any measure, but I feel compelled to withold them until there is evidence that there is more fisical responsibility within the organization. Why should I support an institution that treats operating funds as political spoils?

    If you aspire to leadership you must have integrity. I am very disappointed that Mrs Easley’s position was suspect in legitimacy and salary. I applaud the former Chancellor for stepping down as a sign of integrity but this is not like NC State and I am disappointed in the leadership for hiring Mrs Easley.
