Reporter finds second person who admits taking NC-09 voters’ ballots on behalf of crooked GOP operative

Published

on

Reporter Joe Bruno of North Carolina local news station WSOC 9 has tracked down another person who has admitted taking ballots from voters in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District and giving them to a GOP operative who has been convicted of felony fraud charges.

Bruno on Tuesday posted a video interview that he conducted with a North Carolina resident named Cheryl Kinlaw, who says that Republican operative McCrae Dowless paid her $100 to collect absentee ballots from certain NC-09 residents.

Instead of mailing those ballots in, however, she tells Bruno that she simply turned them over to Dowless, whom she claims had stacks of other ballots on his desk. She also says that she has no idea what happened to the ballots after she gave them to Dowless.

She also tells Bruno that she had no idea that Dowless’ actions were illegal because he’s been doing the same thing for years now.

Dowless is at the center of election fraud allegations that have so far prevented Republican Mark Harris from being certified as the winner of this year’s NC-09 congressional election.

According to a profile Bruno recently wrote about Dowless, the GOP operative “has a criminal record dating back to the 1980s” and also “served six months in prison after being convicted of felony fraud charge in 1992.”

Watch Bruno’s interview with Kinlaw below.

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.

NSC aide Morrison flounders as lawmaker asks why he reported Trump’s phone call if he didn’t think it was a big deal

At the impeachment hearings on Tuesday, National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn't believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) asked him why he reported the call to government lawyers, he had no answer.

"You responded to a series of questions about the call and saw nothing wrong with it, yet you skipped your chain of command to go to legal counsel to find out — I guess to find out what to do, because you were concerned about the political fallout, not about anything being appropriate or wrong with the call, is that correct?" asked Demings.

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.
