Top Republican in NC Senate Using Political Donors to Pay for His Personal Downtown Raleigh Townhome Investment

Senate President Phil Berger (R-Rockingham Co.) is defending himself against a State Board of Elections complaint filed against him which exposes how Berger has been using political campaign contributions to pay the mortgage on his Raleigh townhome. Berger claims the SBE has twice approved his campaign making the regular mortgage payments. But only Berger and another Republican, Tim Moore, the Speaker of the NC House, have used campaign money to make mortgage payments on property they own.
