On December 30th, 2014, at the last minute, the Keith contract was extended leading McCrory Secretary of Public Safety Frank Perry to comment, "Very bad decision… Sorry, but this will soil our Gov."

...
Frank Perry told a legislative oversight committee that he has heard the Keiths mention campaign contribution four times.
Public Safety Secretary contradicts Gov. McCrory's account of the meeting:
McCrory has told the News and Observer: "Had I heard it, I would have walked out… Secretary (Frank Perry) has informed me that was said probably while I was in a side conversation. I did not hear it… In fact, Frank says it was a pretty long table." But when asked about McCrory being in a side conversation, Perry told the News and Observer "I don't recall that."
...
Secretary of Public Safety Frank Perry wanted the contract ended, claiming that it wasn't saving money and was a security risk. "Perry told Roberts and Stith he wanted to end the contract and allow state employees to resume maintenance. His staffers had been adamant that private maintenance wasn't saving money and posed a greater security risk. Perry protested the contract extension and said it wouldn't save much money. But he said he would carry out the 'marching order."' (News and Observer, 10/30/15)
QUOTE: "Very bad decision," Perry texted.
...
McCrory administration official Frank Perry told legislators that he had heard Charlotte developer Graeme Keith Sr. say on four occasions that he wanted something in return for his political donations. "A top McCrory administration official told legislators Wednesday that he had heard Charlotte developer Graeme Keith Sr. say on four occasions that he wanted something in return for his political donations. But Secretary of Public Safety Frank Perry said that Gov. Pat McCrory never directed him to extend or expand a private prison maintenance contract held by Keith's company, and that there was no 'quid pro quo' from the administration and therefore no reason to report the statements. 'It was inappropriate. It was uncomfortable,' said Perry, a former FBI agent. 'But there has been no quid pro quo and therefore no crime.' Perry said he never gave a detailed account of Keith's political overtures to the governor. Perry's comments came as key legislators explored whether anything improper occurred when Keith, a friend of and political donor to the governor, received an extension on his firm's contract for prison maintenance late last year over the objections of Perry and other state correction officials.

"Secretary (Perry) has informed me that was said probably while I was in a side conversation. I did not hear it. (News and Observer, 10/30/15)
After McCrory claimed Perry told him a side conversation kept him from hearing Keith's comments about political contributions, Perry tells the N&O, "I don't recall that".
...
As Exhibit A, McCrory cited Secretary of Public Safety Frank Perry, a former FBI supervisor. McCrory said Perry told him that McCrory was in a "side conversation" when Keith made those remarks during the October 2014 meeting in Charlotte.
...
But Perry says his recollection doesn't match McCrory's. 'I don't recall that,' Perry said in a recent interview. (News and Observer, 1/21/16)
Perry issued statement denying what he said in Jan 14th interview, after the News and Observer reported on Perry comments that contradicted McCrory's story. "But after The News & Observer published the story online Thursday, Perry issued a statement contradicting what he said in the Jan. 14 interview. 'My recollection is exactly the same as the governor's,' Perry said in the statement. 'It's very understandable that the governor did not hear the statement because there were many side conversations taking place throughout the meeting, including one about a courthouse shooting. Everything the governor and I did during the meeting and throughout this process was proper and ethical.'" (News and Observer, 1/21/16) According to N&O, "The McCrory administration has firmly attributed the existence of the side conversation to Perry. "The McCrory administration has firmly attributed the existence of the side conversation to Perry. In its first story about the meeting, The N&O quoted McCrory saying that 'Secretary (Perry) has informed me that was said probably while I was in a side conversation.' In, The N&O attributed to McCrory the explanation that he missed Keith's remarks because of a side conversation. That led press secretary Graham Wilson to send two emails to the newspaper in an effort to emphasize that it was Perry who described the governor as being distracted when Keith Sr. talked about wanting to 'get something in return.'" (News and Observer, 1/21/16)
...
"McCrory offered an explanation, citing Perry: 'But my secretary informed me that that was said probably while I was in a side conversation, and I don't know if it was said to the whole table or not, but I did not hear it. ... In fact, Frank says it was a pretty long table, if I recall in that conference room. And again, it was a meeting in which we had a lot of people in the room where I was trying to hear both sides because I needed to determine the next steps with a conflict between a contractor and a department.' McCrory has said if he had heard the remarks, he 'would have walked out.' At the meeting, Perry sat immediately to McCrory's left, attendees say. Graeme "Greg" Keith Jr. was immediately to his right, with Graeme Keith Sr. one seat away.


RALEIGH - North Carolina Public Safety ...

RALEIGH - North Carolina Public Safety Secretary Frank Perry is defending his recent department shake-up that removed two top agency leaders from their posts but retained a top deputy even when that position was eliminated by lawmakers in the state budget.

Responding to questions Thursday from a General Assembly oversight committee, Perry said his actions saved the state money while allowing his agency to keep emphasizing core operations. The Department of Public Safety is composed of state prisons, the juvenile justice system, Highway Patrol, emergency management and North Carolina National Guard, among other services.
...
Perry also declined to keep the positions of Chief Operating Officer Lorrie Dollar and Administration Commissioner William Crews.
...
Perry characterized the choices between keeping people with lots of administrative experience or someone like Baker, a former FBI agent and head of the state Division of Alcohol Law Enforcement.
...
Perry, also a former FBI agent, said the savings of $87,000 is helping pay for a backlog of training for school resource officers.
Meanwhile, members of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Justice & Public Safety raised concerns that Perry's 2013 department reorganization combining the divisions overseeing adult and juvenile correction activities into one agency may have been unconstitutional.
The committee cited a legislative staff memo that said the state Constitution allows such a department re-organization when the governor signs an executive order making the changes, but still gives the General Assembly the final word to block or modify the changes. That did not occur in this case, the memo reads.
"What are we going to do with an invalid organization? Rep. Leo Daughtry, R-Johnston, said to Perry. "I think you laid yourself out for a lawsuit."
Perry said he would defer to the legislature about what was needed to ameliorate the situation but questioned why no one raised questions during previous presentations on the agencies' combination.
"I don't understand why this took 2½ years to come up," he said.
The panel told its staff members to draw up draft legislation to fix the problem. The General Assembly reconvenes in late April. Perry also said he was prepared to work out differences with lawmakers over responsibility for a new law enforcement training center in Moore County.

Keith subsequently brought up his contributions a few more times to McCrory's DPS Secretary Frank Perry, a former FBI agent.

...
After intensive involvement by McCrory's Budget Director Lee Roberts and Chief of Staff Thomas Stith, Keith's contract was eventually renewed for another year over the objection of Perry and other DPS officials.
...
This week the News & Observer reported that another page of the memo written by DPS staff and recently released by the department showed that McCrory himself called Perry twice about Keith's contract expiring before McCrory called the meeting.
The N&O story also revealed that McCrory offered to fly Secretary Perry and his staff to the Charlotte meeting on the state plane but Perry declined.
...
But it's hard not to think a text sent by Perry to Lee Roberts after Keith's contract was renewed sums up this whole episode.
...
"Very bad decision," Perry wrote.
