“Elections board member resigns under fire”


Hours after Gov. Pat McCrory called on him to step down and after initially refusing to do so, Paul Foley resigned from the State Board of Elections following disclosures he pressed for details in an investigation that involved one of his law firm’s clients.

Elections board Chairman Josh Howard announced Foley’s resignation early Thursday.

In a statement, Foley said he hoped his resignation would help “avoid distractions from the important work of the board.”
