“We believe that the evidence…will show that a coordinated, unlawful and substantially resourced absentee ballot scheme operated during the 2018 general election in Bladen and Robeson counties,” North Carolina Board of Elections executive director Kim Strach said in her opening statement."
“McCrae Dowless hired workers that he paid cash to collect absentee requests, to collect absentee ballots and to falsify absentee ballot witness certifications. McCrae Dowless paid generally $150 per 50 absentee ballot requests and $125 per 50 absentee ballots collected,” Strach said.
“There were also actions we identified that were actions taken to hide this conduct from the Board of Elections and from the greater public. And that small batches of these ballots when they were collected were taken to the post office, limiting the number that would be received by the Board of Elections. There were efforts to ensure that ballots were mailed at a post office that was geographically close to the voter, and ensure witnesses signed and dated the same date as the voters signature they had signed the return envelope,” Strach said"
That folks, is voter fraud. We finally found fairly substantial voter fraud and it’s in NC. People were paid to do this stuff.
I guess it’s not surprising we’d finally find this stuff in NC. They seem to have all kinds of voting stuff going on (closing polling places, closing early voting dates, etc).
This seems a dead issue around here (so many other keys to chase).
I heard McConnel on C-span this morning talking about this issue. He blamed dems.
He pointed out how dems claimed there was no voter fraud and yet here was proof.
He only mentioned that repubs were apparently helped by this but avoided pointing out that repubs had been the ones to do it.
We don’t need to worry about CNN spinning the news. It comes in pre-spun.
What about California, what about a Texas, what about in Florida where the vote for republicans kept getting smaller and smaller and smaller. Oh and if anything happened in North Carolina that’s bad I’m against it but we’ll see.
It seems unfair to have another election. All that coordinated Republican voter fraud, cheating, and vote rigging. The fairer thing would be to strip the cheater and award the election to the next highest vote winner.
But this is NC and apparently it’s run by crooked Republicans.
