A North Carolina district attorney has requested that the State Bureau of Investigation inquire into the alleged corruption of Dana Cope, a member of SEIU’s International Executive Board and the Executive Director of the SEIU­affiliated State Employees Association of North Carolina (SEANC). Cope resigned from his positions under the spectre of allegations that he misappropriated hundreds of thousands of dollars from the union’s bank account, that he misused company credit cards, and that he spent union funds on home renovations and flying lessons. SEANC represents about 55,000 current and retired North Carolina State employees.
