Mary Easley scandal far from over
Posted by Rick Henderson at 09:41 AM
JLF's Piedmont Publius blogger Sam Hieb highlights a nugget from today's Greensboro N&R:
UNCG’s chancellor, Linda Brady, served as the dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at N.C. State when Mary Easley’s teaching role was expanded.
“I can tell you flat out that I felt under no pressure to do anything for Mary Easley that we wouldn’t have done for anyone else with her qualifications,” Brady said Monday.
Easley had been an adjunct professor at the school since 1994, Brady said, and had been given excellent reviews.
Brady said she met with Easley in 2005 and discussed her taking on further courses, something not unusual for successful adjunct faculty.
Easley went on to teach further classes on a per-class basis, Brady said. She was paid through the College of Humanities and Social Sciences until May 2005, when she began being paid by the office of the provost.
Mike and Mary's tentacles reached far and wide.
