A federal grand jury will be focused on former Governor Mike Easley again next week.

It also commands former state Transportation Secretary Lyndo Tippett to testify.

The grand jury is trying to determine if Easley should face political corruption charges.

Easley's former top aide Ruffin Poole pleaded guilty and is now going to provide potentially damaging testimony about his former boss.
