From the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

“On May 10, 1933 student groups at universities across Germany carried out a series of book burnings of works that the students and leading Nazi party members associated with an “un-German spirit.” Enthusiastic crowds witnessed the burning of books by Brecht, Einstein, Freud, Mann and Remarque, among many other well-known intellectuals, scientists and cultural figures, many of whom were Jewish. The largest of these book bonfires occurred in Berlin, where an estimated 40,000 people gathered to hear a speech by the propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, in which he pronounced that “Jewish intellectualism is dead” and endorsed the students’ “right to clean up the debris of the past.””

“Such barbarity was just the beginning, however. One can see in retrospect how the book burnings and other steps to remove “Jewish influence” from German institutions foreshadowed much more catastrophic Nazi plans for the Jews of Europe. Eerily, among the books consigned to the flames in 1933 were the works of the nineteenth century Jewish poet Heinrich Heine, who in 1822 penned the prophetic words, “Where they burn books, they will, in the end, burn human beings too.””

From “1984” by George Orwell.

“But to trace out the history of the whole period, to say who was fighting whom at any given moment, would have been utterly impossible, since no written record, and no spoken word, ever made mention of any other alignment than the existing one.”

“the frightening thing was that it might all be true. If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say of this or that event, it never happened — that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death?”

“The Party said that Oceania had never been in alliance with Eurasia. He, Winston Smith, knew that Oceania had been in alliance with Eurasia as short a time as four years ago. But where did that knowledge exist? Only in his own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed -if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'”

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had been actually destroyed. For how could you establish even the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside your own memory?”

“What happened in the unseen labyrinth to which the pneumatic tubes led, he did not know in detail, but he did know in general terms. As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of The Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in its stead. This process of continuous alteration was applied not only to newspapers, but to books, periodicals, pamphlets, posters, leaflets, films, sound-tracks, cartoons, photographs — to every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct, nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary. In no case would it have been possible, once the deed was done, to prove that any falsification had taken place. The largest section of the Records Department, far larger than the one on which Winston worked, consisted simply of persons whose duty it was to track down and collect all copies of books, newspapers, and other documents which had been superseded and were due for destruction. A number of The Times which might, because of changes in political alignment, or mistaken prophecies uttered by Big Brother, have been rewritten a dozen times still stood on the files bearing its original date, and no other copy existed to contradict it. Books, also, were recalled and rewritten again and again, and were invariably reissued without any admission that any alteration had been made. Even the written instructions which Winston received, and which he invariably got rid of as soon as he had dealt with them, never stated or implied that an act of forgery was to be committed: always the reference was to slips, errors, misprints, or misquotations which it was necessary to put right in the interests of accuracy.”

“Some time after their release Winston had actually seen all three of them in the Chestnut Tree Cafe. He remembered the sort of terrified fascination with which he had watched them out of the corner of his eye. They were men far older than himself, relics of the ancient world, almost the last great figures left over from the heroic days of the Party. The glamour of the underground struggle and the civil war still faintly clung to them. He had the feeling, though already at that time facts and dates were growing blurry, that he had known their names years earlier than he had known that of Big Brother. But also they were outlaws, enemies, untouchables, doomed with absolute certainty to extinction within a year or two. No one who had once fallen into the hands of the Thought Police ever escaped in the end. They were corpses waiting to be sent back to the grave.”

NC, reluctantly was forced to join the Confederacy.

My ancestors were forced by the Democrat Party, the party of slavery, to fight for the Confederacy.

My great great grandfather carried a minnie ball in his leg the rest of his life.

I have reason to believe that he left the Confederate Army and possibly joined the Union. Still working on that confirmation.

I am deeply offended as a citizen, descendant of Confederate Soldiers and as someone who respects history by what the Nazi like thugs did in Durham, NC to the statue.

They need to be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

They are no different than the Nazis who burned books and just as dangerous.

“Protesters topple Confederate soldier statue in downtown Durham”

“Protesters in North Carolina toppled a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier on Monday at a rally against racism.

Activists in Durham brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull down the Confederate Soldiers Monument that was dedicated in 1924. A diverse crowd of dozens cheered as the statue of a soldier holding a rifle fell to the ground in front of an old courthouse building that now houses local government offices.

 Seconds after the monument fell, protesters began kicking the crumpled bronze monument.

“I was a little bit shocked people could come here and come together like that,” said Isaiah Wallace, who is black.

Wallace said he watched as others toppled the statue. He hopes other Confederate symbols elsewhere will follow.”

“After the statue fell, several dozen protesters congregated on the street in front of the old courthouse. Some took pictures standing or sitting on the toppled soldier, in front of a pedestal inscribed with the words “In Memory of the Boys Who Wore The Gray.” Police cruisers blocked off the street, and officers looked on — some filming. As it got dark, rally participants began to peacefully disperse.

Robin Williamson, who works downtown, arrived in the area about an hour after the statue came down. Williamson, who is black, said he can sympathize with people who are upset with the state of racial discourse in the country.

“People feel that with Donald Trump as leader, racists can be vocal,” he said.

He said that while Confederate monuments have been defaced in other cities, it was surprising to see an entire statue brought down by protesters.

“This is a little bit more intense because they took the whole statue down,” he said.”

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.

“NC teen accused of beheading his mother is in country illegally and wanted by ICE

A North Carolina teen who made international headlines Monday for allegedly beheading his mother with a knife is in the country illegally and is now wanted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation.

Bryan Cox, a spokesman for ICE in the southern region, said the agency has filed a detainer for 18-year-old Oliver Funes-Machado, who is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly cutting off the head of his mother, Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machado. The suspect was originally identified by local authorities with the last name spelled Funez.

An ICE detainer means Funes-Machado would enter ICE custody if he bonds out of local criminal custody in the murder case. The Associated Press was reporting late Tuesday that Funes-Machado was transferred to Central Prison in Raleigh under a safekeeping order.

“Given the charge,” Cox said, “the detainer would also apply at whatever point if/when he gets out of prison down the road. So either avenue. But the detainer does not preclude any criminal prosecution.”

Funes-Machado is originally from Honduras, ICE officials said.”

“DURHAM POLICE ENDING TRAFFIC CHECKPOINTS BECAUSE OF IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT CONCERNS
The Durham Police Department is suspending traffic checkpoints in the city in an effort to build better community relations.

“Because of the climate and the pulse of the community and the fear that exists, I did send a directive out,” said Chief C.J. Davis. “This was done to dispel fears that have currently arisen and to further encourage sustainable relationships with the diverse community we serve.”

The directive was issued last week.

Officers will continue to participate in multi-jurisdictional highway safety campaigns, such as Booze It & Lose It and Click It or Ticket.

“When planned and executed appropriately, these operations are very effective. However, in recent weeks there has been national and local concern regarding the role of local law enforcement officers in federal immigration enforcement,” said Davis.”

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.”

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.”

“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.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.”
