REPORT: Nancy Pelosi On N.C. Election Fraud: We Can Refuse To Seat That Congressman
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by HuffingtonPost.com:
WASHINGTON ― House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that election officials in North Carolina have a few options for responding to what appears to be an egregious case of election fraud in the state’s 9th Congressional District.
Members of Congress have an option, too: They can refuse to seat the current leader of the race, Republican Mark Harris.
Pelosi is referring to the scandal unfolding in two North Carolina counties where investigators are trying to figure out whether there’s a nefarious reason so many absentee ballots were never mailed back. In Bladen County, which has a large black population, 40 percent of absentee ballots were never returned. A whopping 62 percent of absentee ballots were not mailed back in nearby Robeson County, which is 38 percent Native American. Both counties far exceeded the district’s non-return rate of 24 percent, and Bladen was the only county in which Harris won the mail-in absentee vote.
In recent days, three people have come forward to local television station WSOC and BuzzFeed News to say they were hired to collect absentee ballots, which violates state law. All of those people have said they worked for McCrae Dowless, a campaign operative with a criminal history who was working for a contractor on behalf of Harris.
The North Carolina State Board of Elections is planning to hold a public hearing by Dec. 21 to decide how to proceed.
