FBI records indicate N.C. Sen. Jesse Helms was a 'contact'

Newly released FBI files say North Carolina's former U.S. Senator Jesse Helms was a "contact" for the FBI, willing to offer to the law enforcement agency the facilities of TV station WRAL, where he was a broadcast executive until the early 1970s. Helms, a five-term U.S. senator and one of the iconic figures of American conservatism, died on July 4, 2008.
