Kay Hagan Conflict Of Interest Judge Recommendation
It is honestly becoming difficult to track all of the different scandals, conflicts of interest, and other ethical issues plaguing Kay Hagan.
Today, the Washington Free Beacon reported on yet another—Hagan recommended a judge for a seat on the U.S. District Court to President Obama about a week after that judge ruled in favor of a company partially owned by Hagan’s husband, Chip.
The senator’s husband, Charles T. “Chip” Hagan, was a managing member of Hydrodyne Industries LLC when it sued a regional water authority for drawing water out of a river that had one of its hydroelectric dams built on. The lawsuit sought millions of dollars in damages and was carried out by Chip Hagan’s legal firm.
Superior Court Judge Calvin E. Murphy ruled the case in favor of Hydrodyne, setting the table for the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority to pay millions in damages to companies including Hydrodyne.
Murphy’s ruling was made on Oct. 23, 2009, just nine days after Sen. Hagan sent his name to Obama to be nominated for a lifetime seat on the U.S. District Court for Western North Carolina.
