Art Pope, already one of the most influential and wealthy political operatives in North Carolina, has further cemented his influence in the highest ranks of power.

Hat tip to WRAL, which reported that Art Pope is on Gov.-elect Pat McCrory's transition team.

Pope, a critic of public education who has funded efforts to increase the number of charter schools, was also recently named to the UNC Advisory Committee on Strategic Directions, which will make recommendations about the future of the UNC system.
