The shocking arrest this week of Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon on federal corruption charges led Time Warner Cable News to look back at other recent cases of political corruption in North Carolina. TWC News interviewed John Locke Foundation Director of Communications Mitch Kokai for that story. Kokai also addressed some of the week’s top state government news during a conversation this morning with Curtis Wright on WMYT.

Kokai fills in this afternoon for Becki Gray on WTSB Radio. Gray offered WTSB listeners her regular update on top developments in politics and public policy earlier this week.
