Legislators in North Carolina are allowed to accept housing from lobbyists, as long as they pay market-rate rent. Nonetheless, the fact that two legislators have been living with lobbyists has drawn some attention.
State Rep. Debbie Clary pays $450 a month to live with lobbyist Connie Wilson, herself a former legislator. They are friends from Raleigh days, Clary tells the News & Observer. "She's never even lobbied me."
But state Sen. Julie Boseman has moved out of a basement apartment belonging to lobbyist Theresa Kostrzewa "out of respect" to her and her family. Boseman paid $50 a night and paid Kostrzewa's daughter as a babysitter.
