Description

As a staff attorney for the Watergate Committee, Rufus Edmisten served a subpoena on then-President Richard Nixon. Edmisten parlyed his reputation as a reformer taking on powerful interests into a political career in his native North Carolina, servins as Attorney General and now Secretary of State. But WRAL-TV documented how Edmisten himself used the trappings of power: staff, cars, cell phones, travel and patronage paid for by the taxpayers to benefit himself and his friends. (Aug. 1, 2, 4, 8, Oct. 13, Dec. 12, & 14, 1995)
