The LaRoque story continues…

Reporter Sarah Ovaska’s investigative reporting on the questionable practices of State Rep. Stephen LaRoque, a powerful member of Speaker Thom Tillis’ leadership team, is drawing attention from the “mainstream” news media.

Yesterday, the conservative Beaufort Observer termed the revelations “troubling” and called on LaRoque to address the questions raised.

WPTF radio in Raleigh also featured Sarah during a half-hour appearance with afternoon host Bill LuMaye.

This morning, the Kinston Free Press reported on the story as did State Government Radio.

Seems a sure thing there will be more to come.
