North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin told MSNBC on Tuesday that the ‘tainted’ election in North Carolina’s ninth congressional district was likely stolen by the Mark Harris campaign, and that his party was going to court to fight the results.
“So far there are affidavits that signify some very troubling irregularities, harvesting of ballots, unsealed ballots, unsigned ballots, ballots that were not turned in, people whose ballots were cast even they did not request absentee ballots,” Goodwin said. “If allegations are proven true, then the state board of elections in North Carolina has the authority to call for a new election. But we need to find out what we don’t know.”
Goodwin said calling for new elections was but one of several options.
“The next option, of course, is for the House of Representatives to determine whether to seat Mr. Harris,” he continued “But there should be no certification of this election until after a decision is made by the state board of elections.”
“We’re going to fight for the voters’ voices to be heard. We’re going to fight for the voters whose ballots were victimized,” Goodwin added, saying the party was prepared to go to court. “We will do everything we can within the law to fight for the voices and for these votes that should have been counted and or have been tampered with. This appears to be a stolen election and we’re going to fight for a fair process.”
“It is certain that this election is tainted,” he said. “The board of elections needs to hear from the witnesses and the investigators to show us and prove to us what their decision should be.”

Law professor who studied under Alan Dershowitz shreds his ‘shockingly wrong’ case against impeaching Trump
Aya Gruber, a professor at the University of Colorado Law School who studied under Trump impeachment attorney Alan Dershowitz at Harvard, had some uncharitable words to say about her former professor's argument against impeaching the president.
"Dershowitz was my criminal law prof, and he was a good one," Gruber writes on Twitter. "But as a crim law prof myself, I can say his motive argument (Congress shouldn't examine the internal motives of POTUS so long he could have had a good reason for withholding aid) is shockingly wrong."
Adam Schiff terrifies Donald Trump and his Republican lackeys
On October 16, 1939, Hollywood director Frank Capra premiered Mr. Smith Goes to Washington before an audience of US senators and House members, Supreme Court justices, journalists and assorted other DC dignitaries. It was an all-star event, sponsored by the National Press Club and held at Constitution Hall. Some 4,000 were in attendance.
They hated it.
Today, the movie is celebrated as the story of the earnest everyman Jefferson Smith (played by Jimmy Stewart), who becomes a senator and struggles to fight graft on Capitol Hill.
But that night the senators were having none of it. Many stomped out of the theater, indignant at how they’d been portrayed in the movie—politicos literally turning their backs on young Jeff Smith as they backed the esteemed colleague at the heart of all the corruption.
The View’s Meghan McCain thinks Pam Bondi did a good job: ‘We’re talking about Hunter Biden on the show’
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain praised President Donald Trump's defense team for changing the subject in the impeachment trial.
Her fellow panelists criticized Trump's lawyers for throwing up a "smokescreen" by attacking former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden -- but McCain thought their defense was effective.
"I watched a bit of Pam Bondi yesterday when I was home, and I, along with 51 percent of the American public, according to 538 which is a pollster, by the way, that works for ABC News, in case you want to question this poll, think this is a bad use of Congress' time."
