“From the McCrory website.

“Hundreds of Fraudulent Cooper Ballots Discovered, Challenged In Bladen County

N.C. Democrat Party-Funded PAC Involved In Apparent Massive Voter Fraud Scheme”

“A formal protest has been filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections to challenge several hundred apparently fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats in Bladen County. Initial evidence laid out in the protest suggests a “massive scheme to run an absentee ballot mill involving hundreds of ballots, perpetrated by and through the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC,” a political action committee funded by the N.C. Democrat Party and other prominent statewide Democrats.””

From the NC State Board of Elections emergency meeting of November 20, 2016.

Mr. Malcolm: “Ms Strach is it true that state board staff has been deployed to Bladen County to investigate allegations related to the most recent election?”

Director Strach: “Yes sir.”

Mr. Malcolm: “Is it true you’ve been in constant contact with those folks as to what they have learned during the course of their investigation?”

Director Strach: “Yes sir.”

Mr. Malcolm: “Is it true that what’s been reported back to you rises to the level to create concern in your mind to whether inappropriate activities by individuals within or perhaps outside the county whether things like that have occurred.

Director Strach: “Yes sir.”

Mr. Malcolm: “Umm, Mr. Chairman in the interest of keeping the active, what may be perceived as a criminal investigation outside the purview of the public, it’s my recommendation that this board exercise its authority under 163-182.12 and take jurisdiction over the allegations known and unknown that are occurring or have occurred in Bladen county as it relates to the most recent election on November 8.”

Kevin Hamilton of Perkins Coie on December 2, 2016 sent a letter to the NC State Board of Elections on behalf of Roy Cooper and NC Democrat Party.

“Re: In re Protest of Election by Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr.

Dear Members of the North Carolina State Board of Elections:

I write on behalf of Roy Cooper and the North Carolina Democratic Party. The purpose of this letter is to request that the Board take no action with regard to the Election Protest filed by Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr. that would disenfranchise voters who committed no election law violation, and to count their votes, at least with regard to elections that are not implicated in Mr. Dowless’s Protest.

Mr. Dowless’s Protest alleges that individuals assisting voters, rather than the voters themselves, wrote the name of write-in candidate “Franklin Graham” on “hundreds” of ballots. See Protest § 6. The protest appears to be alleging a violation of N.C. Gen. Stat. §163-226.3(a)(1), which makes it a felony “[f]or any person except the voter’s near relative or the voter’s verifiable legal guardian to assist the voter to vote an absentee ballot when the voter is voting an absentee ballot other than under the procedure described in G.S. 163-227.2;
provided that if there is not a near relative or legal guardian available to assist the voter, the voter may request some other person to give assistance.”1

1 To the extent Mr. Dowless’s Protest alleges that individuals served as a witness for multiple absentee ballots, that is not a violation of law; and it certainly is not a violation of law by the voter, who would have no reason to know how many envelopes a particular individual has signed as a witness.

We do not know what evidence the Board will hear during its hearing to consider this protest. If the Board determines that N.C. Gen. Stat. § 163-226.3(a)(1) was violated, but that the voters themselves did intend to vote in the manner indicated on their ballots, then we would respectfully submit that those ballots should be counted.

North Carolina law is clear that voter’s choices are to be determined and respected. N.C. Gen. Stat. § 163-182.1(a). “No official ballot shall be rejected because of technical errors in marking it, unless it is impossible to clearly determine the voter’s choice.” Id. § 163-182(a)(2). Improper assistance may be a crime on the part of the assister, but it is certainly not a crime committed by the voter, much less a reason to disregard his or her ballot. See id. § 163-226.3(a)(1).

Even if the Board determines that certain write-in votes were not, in fact, the choice of the voter, North Carolina law still compels the counting of other votes on the ballot so long as those votes reflect the voter’s choice. “If it is impossible to clearly determine a voter’s choice in a ballot item, the official ballot shall not be counted for that ballot item, but shall be counted in all other ballot items in which the voter’s choice can be clearly determined.” Id. §163-182.1(a)(3).

Finally, the only election specifically protested by Mr. Dowless was “November 8, 2016, Bladen County, Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor.” Protest § 4. While Mr. Dowless does make a general reference to “all other candidates on the ballot in this November 8, 2016 General Election in Bladen County,” id., the removal of any ballots implicated would not “cast doubt on the results of” most of those elections. N.C. Gen. Stat. §163-182.10(d)(2)c. It would be contrary to the letter and spirit of North Carolina law, and contrary to the Board’s order of November 28, 2016, ordering the dismissal of protests that do not allege sufficient numerical issues to cast doubt on the results of an election, to refuse
to give effect to voters’ intent in elections that are not cast in doubt. Thus, the Board should count voters’ choices in the gubernatorial election, and in all other elections that are neither affected by the write-in vote nor close enough to be affected by the potential removal of these votes.

Thank you for your consideration.

Very truly yours,

Kevin J. Hamilton
Attorney for Cooper for North Carolina and the North Carolina Democratic Party”

State Board dismisses Bladen County protests

SBE: State Board dismisses Bladen County protests


RALEIGH, N.C. – The State Board of Elections voted Saturday to dismiss the election protest of Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr. of Bladen County, citing a lack of substantial evidence of a violation of election law or other irregularity or misconduct sufficient to cast doubt on the results of the election.


The State Board also unanimously dismissed a protest on appeal from Kenneth Register of Bladen County, citing the same reason.


Board member Joshua D. Malcolm also made a motion for the State Board to make available to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina any and all information in the State Board’s possession regarding the 2016 general election in Bladen County. That motion passed unanimously.

From the Greensboro News Record December 3, 2016.

“McCrory asks SBI to look into potential voter fraud

The State Board of Elections dismissed a complaint originating from a rural North Carolina county that could have prevented scores of ballots from being counted in close races for governor and auditor.

The board voted 3-2 on Saturday to reject the protest from a Bladen County candidate, who with assistance from Republican Gov. Pat McCrory’s campaign, alleged workers for a political committee that received Democratic funds fraudulently filled out absentee ballots.

Lawyers pushing the complaint suggested the board could throw out as many as 419 mail-in absentee ballots. They said evidence showed that a losing write-in candidate for soil and water conservation district supervisor showed up on nearly 170 ballots and may have originated from only seven people. The lawyers said none of those ballots should be tallied for any races.”

“”We have an obligation to ensure that every vote is counted accurately and that our elections process is conducted legally,” said McCrory. “Any verified instance of voter fraud or other illegal activity should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Republican elections board member James Baker joined the panel’s two Democrats in dismissing the complaint, saying voters signed the absentee ballots. There was no substantial evidence to suggest the choices weren’t their own, they said.

“I don’t see how we could deprive them of their vote … for every other race because we have some pretty serious misgivings about the soil and water race,” Baker said at the close of four hours of testimony and discussion. The board’s other two Republicans voted against dismissal.”

  2. “Kevin Hamilton, the Seattle-based lawyer for Democratic candidate Roy Cooper, argued against the recount.

    “Mere suspicion … is not enough. Uncertainty is not enough,” Hamilton said.

    Hamilton is a senior partner alongside Marc Elias at Perkins Coie in Seattle. The Perkins Coie firm has made headlines recently for representing Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin’s recount.

    Elias also has been hired by leftist billionaire George Soros with a multi-million dollar commitment to challenge Voter ID laws in several states, including North Carolina.”

  3. CW, I have no words for this….

  4. I want the fraud exposed regardless of outcome.

  5. The moment the usurper created ISIS, and gave them their leader.

  6. “Governor Pat McCrory has requested that the State Bureau of Investigation look into voting irregularities in Bladen County. This request follows the unanimous vote by the State Board of Elections to refer the matter to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District.

    “We have an obligation to ensure that every vote is counted accurately and that our elections process is conducted legally,” said Governor McCrory. “Any verified instance of voter fraud or other illegal activity should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.””

  9. I have been watching and gathering data on Podesta for months.
    I also believed that it would take a cleansed Justice Dept to investigate the whole mess including the new emails that the NYPD allegedly gave to the corrupt current Justice Dept.
    I may be putting up an article soon of irrefutable facts.
    I believe that damage control is going on including trying to portray all of the pedophilia as fake news.
    They must be worried about Trump, et al.

  10. Worried is not a strong enough word.
    Scared poopless.

  11. HonorFirst.

  12. AND it sounds(as of this morning) that McRory might be softening his stance. He allegedly agreed not to look any further if no voter fraud is found in the neighboring county. Somebody has probably threatened the life of a member of his family. (straight out of the LIBERAL’S playbook.)……entitled “SUREFIRE POLITICAL SOLUTIONS”.

  13. CW………..
    ………be very careful where Podesta is concerned. I have read that he is held in very high esteem by Soetoro. America is now at a point in time where MORE THAN DESPARATE PIECES OF LIBERAL SHI# WILL try anything including MURDER, to have their way. If McRory’s family WAS THREATENED it would be STANDARD EQUIPMENT, and expected. I say be careful simply because Podesta is close to the absolute top of the pile in the BASTARD PARTY……..which behaves like a MAFIA FAMILY.

  14. McCrory agreed to no further recount if the recount in Durham matched the original.
    Already, 2/3 thru, it does not.
    339 felons were found voting illegally statewide.
    Must be some in Durham the fifth largest co.

  15. THE CHINESE………..
    ……….are now jumping up and down ,and hyper breathing, because the leader of Taiwan telephoned Donald Trump………some more Chinese BULLSHI#. They don’t mind breaking established INTERNATIONAL MARITIME LAW, but they get all hot and bothered when the leader of Taiwan telephones Trump JUST TO CONGRATULATE HIM ON HIS WIN OF THE PRESIDENCY. The Chinese behave like a pathetic pack of out of control CHILDREN, who need to discover what the woodshed is really for. They have all their newfound toys, but knowing how to behave as owners of such toys, is obviously non existent. One day one of their lesser leaders will make a SERIOUS MISTAKE IN HIS JUDGEMENT OF AMERICAN’S, intentions and the result could easily turn into a major confrontation………..which the Chinese will painfully discover we do have the resolve to defend ourselves as necessary……….but sadly thousands could die on both sides before an end to hostilities happens. Chinese population near 1 trillion. The leaders probably would WANT A WAR if for no other reason than to thin out their population.

  16. Michelle Obama is a transgender?

    Posted on March 14, 2014 by Dr. Eowyn

    I’ve had this post in draft for MONTHS. I’ve hesitated to publish this because of the gravity of what is being asserted, and the uncertainty of the evidence to support the assertion.

    The startling assertion is that the current First Lady of the United States of America, known as Michelle Robinson Obama, is a biological male posing as a woman.

    That anyone would make such an assertion is a mark of how much distrust and suspicion the Obamas have engendered, due entirely to Barack’s secretiveness concerning his Selective Service registration, school records (including even his kindergarten record!), and medical records; his refusal to explain why his Social Security number has a Connecticut prefix; and his outright deception about his birth certificate, an image of which he made public on April 27, 2011, but which forensic experts have determined to be a fake. It doesn’t help that the Hawaiian official, Loretta Fuddy, who had signed off on Obama’s purported birth certificate was the only passenger who recently died in a small plane crash.

    Startlingly, even the Obamacare sign-up website cannot verify Barack Obama’s identity! (See also “Investor’s Business Daily editorial asks if Obama’s entire life is a fiction.”)

  17. “North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory conceded the governor’s race Monday, clearing the way for Democrat Roy Cooper to be declared the winner nearly four weeks after Election Day.”

  18. ………..I WONDER…….
    ………..WHO IT WAS WHO TOLD CHINA THAT THEY ARE IN CONTROL OF AMERICA. The last time I checked the POTUS, along with all Americans have the right to talk to anybody he/she chooses whether it is on the telephone or face to face. If the PIECES OF SHI# who call themselves Chinese, or whether it is the MEDIA, don’t like what the POTUS CHOOSES TO DO, should themselves take a LONG WALK ON A SHORT PIER………OR SIMPLY JUST GO TO HELL! If the Chinese take an offensive action which is clearly meant to be, while Donald Trump is POTUS I have the feeling that there will be an appropriate MILITARY response from our side which will tell the Chinese very painfully that they have made a serious mistake in their judgement.
