March 11, 2020 by AMES ALEXANDER AND MICHAEL GORDON
For the jury ruling on Greg Lindberg’s fate, the tale was in the tape.
Lindberg, a Durham billionaire who became one of North Carolina’s largest political donors, was convicted Thursday of using the promise of millions in campaign money to bribe North Carolina’s insurance commissioner Mike Causey.
Following about 12 hours of deliberations spread over three days, the federal jury also found Lindberg associate John Gray guilty on two public corruption charges. Associate John Palermo was found not guilty of both.
