North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall describes for host Barlow Herget how foreclosure paperwork mills issued fraudulent foreclosure documents for banks, including some in North Carolina.  Many of these papers were falsely notarized which is a misdemeanor or felony in NC.  No such mills are operating here, but citizens with questions about proper foreclosure paperwork can call her office. Marshall also says the House budget bill provision that transfers her lobbying regulation office to the Ethics Commission has had little discussion.  She knows of no lobbyists who are campaigning for such a change, and says she wasn't consulted on the move. She doesn't believe that only three people as proposed by the House, can keep up with over 800 lobbyists.
