Sinsheimer: Better tools needed to tackle ‘a sewer of problems’ (video)

There’s growing pressure for members of the General Assembly to get moving on a list of new ethics bills designed to promote greater accountability in state government.

Sinsheimer also believes North Carolina’s Attorney General should have investigative grand jury powers, given questions surrounding the conduct of former Governor Mike Easley.
