Governor McCrory

One of the complaints lodged in January by the group Progress North Carolina Action said McCrory should have included on his economic disclosure statement cash and stock he received from online mortgage broker LendingTree from when he served on its board. The other complaint, filed in March, centered on trips he took that were paid for through the Republican Governors Association.

Progress North Carolina Action released last month’s dismissal documents Wednesday after McCrory announced the decision. State law doesn’t allow the ethics commission to publicly release its decisions.

The toll lanes scheduled to be built along Interstate 77 have drawn the ire of public officials in Mooresville, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville. Those towns and the Mecklenburg County Commission have passed resolutions asking the Governor McCrory to delay or stop the project.

But McCrory isn’t impressed with their pleas.

“It’s ironic when I hear state senators and other local mayors and county commissioners, all of a sudden, 'Woe and behold, we’re reading if for the first time?' " McCrory said to Charlotte Talks host Mike Collins.

Asked if he supported the toll lanes, McCrory said, "I would not have been if they opposed it two years ago. I would have stopped it."
