Don Beason responds..from Joyce Fitzpatrick who says she's representing him (at least in a PR way).
STATEMENT FROM DON BEASON
It is true that I made a loan to Dr. Black seven years ago. In spring, 2007 I provided testimony about this matter to a Federal Grand Jury in Wake County.
I recognize that making the loan was a serious error in judgment and I deeply regret it.
I apologize to my clients, to my fellow lobbyists, to members of the General Assembly and most of all to the citizens of North Carolina.
I am truly sorry.
