N.C. GOP Leader Open To New Election As Fraud Investigation Continues

Mark Harris North Caorlina voter fraud

On Thursday, McCready told television station WSOC that he was withdrawing his concession and accused Harris of bankrolling "criminal activity".

North Carolina Republican Party Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse slammed his own party on Thursday, telling MSNBC he was open to new elections if the election fraud allegations rocking GOP House candidate Mark Harris proved true. Among them: Did Harris' 905-vote win over Democrat Dan McCready rest on fraud? In Bladen County, Dowless employees told local television station WSOC and BuzzFeed News that they collected absentee ballots from people and gave them to Dowless, which violates state law.

Dowless allegedly helped orchestrate a scheme to tamper with absentee ballots in Harris' favor.

Dowless earned more than $23,000 working on six campaigns dating back to 2010, and in most of those races, Dowless' candidates received a disproportionately higher percentage of absentee votes in Bladen County.

The North Carolina Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement is looking into the irregularities in Bladen and Robeson counties, neighboring rural jurisdictions near the SC border, where 40 percent and 62 percent of absentee ballots, respectively, weren't returned. The board is meeting later this month to hear evidence, but it's unclear whether the race will be settled then. That scandal, involving the alleged disappearance of minority voters' absentee ballots to the apparent benefit of Republican candidate Mark Harris, underscores a remarkable turn in the battle over election integrity.

"If they can show a substantial likelihood it could have changed the race then we fully would support a new election", he said.

However, he said that if the investigation shows that the outcome would not have been changed, Republican candidate Harris should be certified the victor.

The Democrat's withdrawal comes weeks after he conceded to Harris following the 2018 midterm elections.

At issue is who can handle completed ballots.

Colbert described the fraud allegations like this: volunteers for the Republican went door to door collecting the absentee ballots (which would already be illegal in North Carolina). But state election officials have refused to certify the results while looking at potential absentee ballot irregularities in at least two counties.

The revelations and ensuing national news coverage have put pressure on Republicans and attracted attention from top Democrats.

"The House still retains the right to decide who is seated", she said.

It was close, but North Carolina Republican Mark Harris was jubilant on election night.

Subpoenas have been issued for Harris's campaign, Red Dome (the political consulting firm Dowless has worked under), and the campaign of County Sheriff Jim McVicker, who also has paid for Dowless's services.

North Carolina's board of elections is also investigating concerns about ballot collection, as well as unusually high interest in absentee ballots in Bladen and Robeson counties. The state is investigating claims that a GOP operative may have manipulated ballots.

"Join me in this fight for the people whose voices were taken from them", he said.
