Fred Eshelman, the pharmaceutical company CEO from Wilmington who has donated millions to right-wing attack groups like Real Jobs NC and Rightchange.com, is now worried that the people elected to the General Assembly in November might hurt UNC-Wilmington as they “slash and burn” their way through the state budget to address a $4 billion shortfall.
Eshelman is a member of the UNC-W Board of Trustees after being inexplicably appointed by Governor Beverly Perdue to the post earlier this year.
A reader of the Star-News recently said that Eshelman has a lot of chutzpa complaining about what might happen if the anti-government budget slashers he is helping take over in Raleigh.
That’s one word for it, but it’s not hard to think of a few others.
