Counterfeit goods

Government scandal and corruption, North Carolina-style:
State Division of Motor Vehicles Commissioner George Tatum resigned today, a spokesman said.

The resignation comes a little more than a week after The News & Observer reported an allegation that Tatum had helped a friend get a replica of a 1937 Ford truck titled as the real thing.

This is *so* Southern, I can't even begin to cope with it.

Dude resigns in shame and disgrace because he got caught helping a friend counterfeit a pickup truck.
