“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”…Adolf Hitler

“Before the Hate had proceeded for thirty seconds, uncontrollable exclamations of rage were breaking out from half the people in the room.”
“In it’s second minute the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices”

I watch very little network TV.

However, I got hooked on “CBS Survivor” and watch it religiously.

That may change after what took place Wednesday night.

Let me be clear, when I am watching this or any other show I do not care about the sexual preference, who they sleep with or any other matters of a personal nature.

The show is cutthroat, competitive, it is a damn game!

Jeff Varner, in an attempt to not get voted out, playing his best perceived strategies screwed up.

Varner, who is gay, outed Zeke Smith for not being honest about his transgender status.

It was a stupid and insensitive ploy.

He apologized but was still voted out.

The scene that took place was disgusting with “snowflake” reactions from some.

It went on too long and may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back as far as my continued following of the show. It was too much like a soap opera.

I don’t even like writing about this crap except that this is getting more and more out of hand.

I knew as soon as this happened that the LGBT weasels aka brownshirts aka thought police would jump all over Varner and they did.

I never really cared for Varner and didn’t think he was much of a player, but what has happened to him is wrong.

And then he lost his job.

He was fired by the real estate firm Tyler Redhead & McAlister. Unless I find out that something else was in play, I intend to boycott them and urge others to do so.

BTW, up until a few years ago, I had the highest level of real estate license in  NC, Broker in Charge.

Would not surprise me if Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan had something to do with this. She is in tight with the LGBT community.

“Maria Sanchez was arrested on May 6, 2008 by investigators of the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office for stealing and using the identity of Veronica Arias.
Sanchez used the name, SSN, DOB, of Veronica Arias who is a living resident of Texas.
As a post-arrest procedure, Maria Sanchez was processed under the 287G program and identified as an illegal alien. She was subsequently processed for deportation.
Sanchez was provided work notes by the Alamance County Health Department to return to work at HondaPower Equipment (this creates substantial tax implications for the real Veronica Arias who is a lawful U.S. resident/citizen).”…Alamance County NC sheriff report 2008

From Faith Action.

“In 2012, FaithAction was awarded the GPD Chief’s Award for this bridge-building work, and with the support of the GPD launched the FaithAction ID initiative in the summer of 2013, providing identification for ANY RESIDENT in our community who may not have access to government issued forms of ID”

“FaithAction ID cards provide participants with a verifiable form of ID that designated law enforcement, health centers, schools, businesses, and cultural arts organizations can use to better identify, serve, and protect you.  The card also reflects your support of safer, more inclusive and united communities for all. The FaithAction ID card is officially accepted by certain partners (discussed during the orientation), and may or may not be accepted by others, depending on the policy of each institution.”

It is easy to get a legal ID in NC.

Requirements & Documents to Obtain Non-Operator ID Cards

“Proof of Citizenship & Residency

To obtain a North Carolina ID card, you must be a North Carolina resident. Documents that you may present as proof of residency are listed in Table (3) of the approved list of acceptable documents.

You must also be a U.S. citizen or be able to demonstrate legal presence in the U.S. Documents that may be used to demonstrate legal presence are listed in Tables (7) and (8) of the approved list of acceptable documents.”

Getting an ID in NC is easy as long as you are here legally.

From Fox8 February 3, 2017.

“Greensboro police support non-government issued ID cards

“More than 200 people are closer to having ID cards Friday night. The cards are not government issued, but some local law enforcement agencies support giving them out. This is happening even in time when the Trump administration is talking tough about any help for people who are in the country illegally.

FaithAction is a group that supports immigrants, legal or illegal, and it has the support of law enforcement agencies like Greensboro police.

“When someone gets pulled over the first thing police asked for is identification and if they’re not able to provide that, they could potentially take that person to jail,” said David Fraccaro, the executive director of FaithAction. “That would mean taking our law-enforcement off the street and into a magistrate’s office for hours, when we have bigger fish to fry.”

Greensboro police say the IDs have worked well in the three years since FaithAction started this. To get the cards people must pay $10, go to an orientation, provide a different form of ID, like a passport, and have proof of their address.

Tough talk on immigration from the Trump administration has them organization wondering about the ID card program’s future.

“Don’t feel positive about the executive orders but we are feeling positive about the tremendous support from local law enforcement, who want the same thing we do… a safer and inclusive more united community,” Fraccaro said.

The Greensboro Police Department says it will continue to accept the IDs because its goal is to create a safer community and the IDs help.”

Greensboro police support non-government issued ID cards

a safer …. community”???

How is allowing illegal immigrants carte blanche to roam the city making the community safer?

I sent 2 emails Friday AM.

One to NC senator Phil Berger and the other to Burlington police chief Jeffrey Smythe.

To Phil Berger:

“Question:
Re: SESSION LAW 2015-294 HOUSE BILL 318.
From the NC site:
SECTION 11. Chapter 15A of the General Statutes is amended by adding a new Article to read: “Article 18. “Identification Documents.
 “§ 15A-306. Consulate documents not acceptable as identification.
(a) The following documents are not acceptable for use in determining a person’s actual identity or residency by a justice, judge, clerk, magistrate, law enforcement officer, or other government official:
 (1) A matricula consular or other similar document, other than a valid passport, issued by a consulate or embassy of another country.
(2) An identity document issued or created by any person, organization, county, city, or other local authority, except where expressly authorized to be used for this purpose by the General Assembly.
(b) No local government or law enforcement agency may establish, by policy or ordinance, the acceptability of any of the documents described in subsection (a) of this section as a form of identification to be used to determine the identity or residency of any person. Any local government policy or ordinance that contradicts this section is hereby repealed.”
This was widely reported.
However, the statute reads:
Article 18. Identification Documents.
§ 15A-311. Consulate documents not acceptable as identification.
 (a) The following documents are not acceptable for use in determining a person’s actual identity or residency by a justice, judge, clerk, magistrate, law enforcement officer, or other government official:
(1) A matricula consular or other similar document, other than a valid passport, issued by a consulate or embassy of another country.
 (2) An identity document issued or created by any person, organization, county, city, or other local authority, except where expressly authorized to be used for this purpose by the General Assembly.
 (b) No local government or law enforcement agency may establish, by policy or ordinance, the acceptability of any of the documents described in subsection (a) of this section as a form of identification to be used to determine the identity or residency of any person. Any local government policy or ordinance that contradicts this section is hereby repealed.
 (c) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, documents described in subdivision (2) of subsection (a) of this section may be used by a law enforcement officer to assist in determining the identity or residency of a person when they are the only documents providing an indication of identity or residency available to the law enforcement officer at the time. (2015-264, s. 36.3; 2015-294, s. 11.)
Where did (c) come from?
The only reference to it that I found was from the Elon News Network.
“House bill 318 amended to allow law enforcement to accept alternative IDs”
“According to Burlington Police Chief Jeffrey Smythe, though, another amendment was added to the bill that permits law enforcement to use any form of ID to confirm a person’s identity. That includes FaithAction’s ID, which has provided more than 2,000 IDs to immigrants since 2013.”
Even if this is true, (C) does not supercede (B).
What gives?”
To Jeffrey Smythe.
“You were quoted on 9/30/15 in a Elon News Network article:
“According to Burlington Police Chief Jeffrey Smythe, though, another amendment was added to the bill that permits law enforcement to use any form of ID to confirm a person’s identity. That includes FaithAction’s ID, which has provided more than 2,000 IDs to immigrants since 2013.””
“My question to you is, why do you believe that you can accept Faith Action or other non govt. approved IDs since (c) does not supercede (b)?”
A new bill HB100 is currently before the legislature.
” (c) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, documents described in subdivision (2) 22 of subsection (a) of this section may be used by a law enforcement officer to assist in determining 23 the identity or residency of a person when they are the only documents providing an indication of 24 identity or residency available to the law enforcement officer at the time.”
c has been stricken through for removal.
There is also much added about municipal accountability.
And BTW, not only is the City of Greensboro violating the law, they are contributing money to Faith Action.
Much more to come.

Illegal aliens are stealing our IDs, jobs, money, resources and in some cases lives.

California state senator DeLeon had the audacity to admit that half of his family was here illegally and using fake IDs.

The left wants you to believe that is ok.

People like DeLeon are trying to mainstream accepting illegals as being good for the country, not doing anything wrong.

From Breitbart February 5, 2017.

“California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions.

De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.

He said (at 1:27:34 in the video that follows):

… I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.”

Did the illegal members of his family vote too?

From Citizen Wells November 2, 2010.

“The following controversy in NC received brief national attention in 2008.

From the Alamance County Sheriff’s Ofice, Alamance County Health Department Investigation, 2008.
(Alamance County is just east of Greensboro)

“On Monday June 23rd, 2008 the SBI initiated an
investigation into allegations that employees of the
Alamance County Health Department specifically Dr.
Kathleen Shapley-Quinn and Nurse Karen Saxer were
knowingly and willingly falsifying patient medical
records.”
“At the request of some patients, Alamance
County Health Department provided work
notes and prescriptions in alias names.

Providing these services would assist illegal
aliens with maintaining assumed or stolen
identities, which may be a violation of state, or
federal law. (Identity Theft, Fraud, etc.)”
“The staff was divided with some believing the practice of writing
work notes (utilizing aliases) to suspected illegal aliens was wrong
and therefore they refused to do so. Subsequently they reported
feeling pressured or feared repercussions.

Others, particularly Shapely-Quinn and Saxer believed the
guidance they had sought and received was vague at best, but
believed their actions did not violate the law and they were
providing care for their patients. Furthermore, according to
them, an illegal alien can not be refused medical care.”
“On more than one occasion Nurse Karen Saxer at the
direction of Dr. Shapley-Quinn prepared or made
health related employer work notes for patients under
alias names, knowing that the names on the documents
were in fact not the birth name or legal name of the
patient.”
“Veronica Arias, of Texas, reported on May 2nd, 2008 to
the ACSO that someone in Swepsonville, NC had
stolen her identity and was using same to be employed.

Maria Sanchez was arrested on May 6, 2008 by
investigators of the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office
for stealing and using the identity of Veronica Arias.

Sanchez used the name, SSN, DOB, of Veronica Arias
who is a living resident of Texas.”

Electoral college electors meet today December 19, 2016 to vote for president and vice president, Six Certificates of Vote paired with six Certificates of Ascertainment, January 6, 2017 congress meets to count and certify electoral votes

Electoral college electors meet today December 19, 2016 to vote for president and vice president, Six Certificates of Vote paired with six Certificates of Ascertainment, January 6, 2017 congress meets to count and certify electoral votes

“”My good friend Ann here actually got some sort of irritant in one of the letter. My son had his car vandalized,” said Mike Delk, President of the NC Electoral College. “Other people have received threats, attempted bribes.”

But the electors say they are not swayed by these actions. All 15 said they will cast their votes for Trump which will go toward the 270 elector votes required. Trump’s nationwide total is 306.

The members said they have a message for those protesting the results.

“It really shows a lack of understanding of our democracy,” said Dr. Glenn Pinckney, Secretary of the NC Electoral College. “It shows an honest lack and disrespect.””…WTVD

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

 

From the US Electoral College.

THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

“December 19, 2016

The Electors meet in their state and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The electors record their votes on six “Certificates of Vote,” which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment.

The electors sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. A set of electoral votes consists of one Certificate of Ascertainment and one Certificate of Vote. These are distributed immediately as follows:

  • one set to the President of the Senate (the Vice President) for the official count of the electoral votes in January;
  • two packages to the Secretary of State in the state where the electors met—one is an archival set that becomes part of the public record of the Secretary of State’s office and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes;
  • two packages to the Archivist—one is an archival set that becomes part of the permanent collection at the National Archives and Records Administration and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes; and
  • one set to the presiding judge in the district where the Electors met—this is also a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes.

December 28, 2016

Electoral votes (the Certificates of Vote) must be received by the President of the Senate and the Archivist no later than nine days after the meeting of the electors. States face no legal penalty for failure to comply.

If votes are lost or delayed, the Archivist may take extraordinary measures to retrieve duplicate originals.

On or Before January 3, 2017

The Archivist and/or representatives from the Office of the Federal Register meet with the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House in late December or early January. This is, in part, a ceremonial occasion. Informal meetings may take place earlier.

January 6, 2017

The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes. Congress may pass a law to change this date.

The Vice President, as President of the Senate, presides over the count and announces the results of the Electoral College vote. The President of the Senate then declares which persons, if any, have been elected President and Vice President of the United States.

If a State submits conflicting sets of electoral votes to Congress, the two Houses acting concurrently may accept or reject the votes. If they do not concur, the votes of the electors certified by the Governor of the State on the Certificate of Ascertainment would be counted in Congress.

If no Presidential candidate wins 270 or more electoral votes, a majority, the 12th Amendment to the Constitution provides for the House of Representatives to decide the Presidential election. If necessary the House would elect the President by majority vote, choosing from the three candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by state, with each state having one vote.

If no Vice Presidential candidate wins 270 or more electoral votes, a majority, the 12th Amendment provides for the Senate to elect the Vice President. If necessary, the Senate would elect the Vice President by majority vote, choosing from the two candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by state, with each Senator having one vote.

If any objections to the Electoral College vote are made, they must be submitted in writing and be signed by at least one member of the House and one Senator. If objections are presented, the House and Senate withdraw to their respective chambers to consider their merits under procedures set out in federal law.

January 20, 2017 at Noon—Inauguration Day

The President-elect takes the Oath of Office and becomes the President of the United States.”

Citizen Wells here to present the real news about the Durham County NC recount in the gubernatorial election.

You sure as hell are not getting it from the “fake news” based mainstream media.

There are errors of commission and omission.

And then of course there is evil.

In the past several days I can find no other source on the internet reporting the following.

Despite what the Durham County Board of Elections has been trying to cover up for, the change in recount that was reported to the state is significant. A change of 131 votes in one county out of 100.

I would be willing to bet that even this number is not accurate.

Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens:

“Durham historically hasn’t figured out how to carry out an election properly.”

Here are the results:

Roy Cooper gain of 90 votes.

Pat McCrory gain of 40 votes.

Lon Cecil gain of 1 vote.

Durham County Canvass:

December 8, 2016.

http://dconc.gov/home/showdocument?id=19980

From the Raleigh News Observer December 5, 2016.

“Cooper picks up six votes on McCrory in Durham County recount”

“Durham County Board of Elections officials said their recount of 94,000 votes proved once again that the results that they reported on election night were accurate.

“We’ve been run through the wringer on this, and now proven to everybody that there was no problem,” said Durham County Board of Elections Chairman Bill Brian. “We have now proven to them three or four times there was no problem.”

In the recount completed Monday afternoon, Attorney General Roy Cooper picked up six votes, while Gov. Pat McCrory’s total stayed the same. Republican McCrory conceded to Democrat Cooper on Monday as the recount wrapped up.

After receiving the new count, Durham County officials made the election results official, marking the end of a two-week delay that followed Republican leaders and McCrory questioning the legitimacy of Durham County votes. Questions about the votes arose after the left-leaning county’s results were reported about 11:45 p.m. election night, pushing Cooper ahead of McCrory.

Brian, a Republican, along with the two other board members, a Republican and a Democrat, said the recount results remove the idea of a “taint” on the Durham County election that the State Board of Elections referred to when they ordered the recount last week.

The Republican-led State Board of Elections voted 3-2 along party lines Wednesday to order a machine recount of about 94,000 votes in Durham County by 7 p.m. Monday. The order backed the request from Republicans and McCrory’s campaign. The state board’s decision overturned the Durham County board, which had rejected the recount request as baseless.

“The only taint that was ever on Durham was put there by the state board,” Brian said.

Durham County officials had defended the original results, saying the votes came in late after they had to manually enter voting information because they were unable to upload data from six cards that saved information from ballot tabulators.

Data from five of the cards could not be uploaded to software because the number of votes per race exceeded the software’s memory limitation. A sixth card may have had a battery problem. Officials instead entered the information from the tabulators’ paper tapes.

Thomas Stark, general counsel for the N.C. Republican Party, said the recount results show that part of the process worked out the way it should, in spite of some glitches.

Stark said he still wasn’t confident that the statewide count was accurate.

“I think we have a lot of ineligible voters that are voting in North Carolina,” he said, and officials need to take a closer look at the issue. But proving those concerns takes “a lot longer than you have in the post-election canvass process,” he said.”

From the Civitas Institute December 6, 2016.

“Yesterday the Civitas Institute decided to withdraw its request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to remove same-day ballots from certification, while the lawsuit requesting voter verification of same-day registrants in accordance with the law and constitution moves forward.

Civitas president Francis De Luca said, “Our decision to drop the request for the temporary injunction avoids any continued disruption to the conclusion of the election, given the political realities. It is important to focus on the core issue of the suit, which seeks to ensure the equal treatment of voters under the law. To count ballots without proper verification of same-day registration information discriminates by treating one class of voters differently from another and ignores federal and state laws. We hope all can now focus on the important issue of voter verification. The federal lawsuit will move forward.””

The following facts regarding the Bladen County NC election protest are  presented without commentary.

From Citizen Wells November 19, 2016.

“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.”

The dialogue can be heard at 1:41:38.

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.

“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.”

The NC SBI has been investigating the Durham County Board of Elections handling of more than 1,000 provisional ballots during the March primary elections. Although this does not directly relate to their performance during the general election, it does, I believe reveal a bigger problem there.

“North Carolina’s top criminal investigations agency is looking into whether there was wrongdoing in last spring’s primary election in Durham County, the likely ground zero in the ongoing fight over last week’s still-in-doubt race for governor.

A State Bureau of Investigation spokesman and Durham’s district attorney confirmed Monday that investigators have been on the case for two weeks.

The bureau is investigating whether crimes were committed in the mishandling of more than 1,000 provisional ballots during the March primary elections. Some may have been counted twice and election officials presented the vote count as true when it was wrong, according to an interim report presented to the state elections board in May. The miscount didn’t affect the primary’s outcome.”
