And on and on and on and on…
Such is the corruption of Democrats and the North Carolina gubernatorial race.
On Tuesday, I wrote about the ongoing battle being waged between Governor Pat McCrory and his Democrat opponent, Attorney General Roy Cooper, and the new twist out of Bladen County, NC.
To recap, a Democrat-funded PAC called Bladen County Improvement Association PAC was found to have milled out hundreds of absentee ballots that were witnessed and signed by the same people.
A formal complaint was filed with the Bladen County Board of Elections.
My first thought was that they needed to look at every Democrat-funded PAC in the state.
Somebody heard me.
From Governor McCrory’s campaign site:
Formal protests are being filed to challenge potentially fraudulent absentee ballots cast for Roy Cooper and other Democrats in 11 additional counties. These protests follow the discovery of a North Carolina Democrat Party-funded political action committee which appears to have paid individuals to fill out and witness hundreds of fraudulent absentee ballots for Democrats including Roy Cooper in Bladen County.
In addition to funneling money to the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC, the North Carolina Democratic Party simultaneously transferred money to political action committees in these 11 counties. Similar absentee voting and handwriting patterns as in Bladen County have been discovered in at least one of these counties, suggesting these PACs may have been harvesting and witnessing multiple absentee ballots as well.
“It appears that our worst fears have come true and this absentee ballot fraud scheme may run deeper than just Bladen County,” said Russell Peck, Pat McCrory’s campaign manager. “Unfortunately, we may also have uncovered the real reason Roy Cooper fought so hard against efforts to prevent voter fraud as attorney general. These voter fraud concerns must be addressed before the results of the election can be finalized.”
And that is correct. Roy Cooper has been largely invisible for his entire 16-year tenure as Attorney General, but he has gotten quite animated about several things, recently: flinging open the bathrooms and locker rooms around North Carolina to be accessed by anybody, at any time, and to stop voter ID in the state.
A protest has been filed today in Halifax County and additional protests are being filed by registered voters in Durham, Edgecombe, Franklin, Guilford, Nash, Northampton, Robeson, Vance, Wake and Warren counties. The protests urge each county board of elections conduct a full scale investigation into these absentee ballots and review all witness signatures on these absentee ballot envelopes to look for evidence of obvious ballot harvesting.
Many of these counties denied citizens the right to review absentee ballot envelopes to look for similar patterns, but there are thousands of absentee ballots in these 11 counties that need to be reviewed to ensure that only lawful, valid votes are counted in this election.
It’s just another twist. It’s another red flag.
Democrats may have lost the war, but this is a battle they were willing to steal, because they know what it means.
If a Republican governor with the record of Governor McCrory can be taken out, no other Republican governor would dare take a stand on the social issues. The culture falls to the whim of Democrats and the fringe, special interest groups that support them.
Governor McCrory has a target on his back. Let’s pray that just this once, the good guys win.
