AppState's Student Newspaper Probes the AppPAC

Ethan Hunt, reporter for The Appalachian newspaper, has up this morning a lengthy, in-depth investigation into the Appalachian PAC and its possible water-carrying for the university. 

It's a little late to be of much utility in this municipal election today, but it's notable for its thoroughness.

Hunt's reporting is also notable for upstaging the Watauga Democrat, a newspaper that might have done the same investigation but didn't. Or at least didn't publish anything, if a reporter there did in fact look into the story of heavy university connections behind some candidates for the BooneTown Council.
