Olson-Boseman's problems persist, Minnicozzi quits race, Leland's wings clipped

Port City Politics wide

On this episode: the North Carolina State Bar says New Hanover County Chair Julia Olson-Boseman mismanaged client funds and then lied about it — and they're not letting the issue go. Plus, Jason Minnicozzi was the Democratic candidate preparing to take on Republican incumbent Michael Lee for State Senate District 7... until he wasn't. And, Leland's aspirations for expanding its boundaries get checked by the state.
