WATCH: Criminal investigation launched to investigate Republican voter fraud in North Carolina congressional race

Published

on

The Wake County District Attorney, Lorrin Freeman, revealed on Monday the existence of an active criminal investigation to “potential voting irregularities” in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, The News Observer reports.

The investigation began early this year and incorporates allegations from 2016 in addition to the 2018 primary and general election.

The state elections board has declined twice to certify the 9th congressional district race between Republican Mark Harris and Democrat Dan McCready.

To explain the importance, MSNBC anchor Ari Melber brought on Gerry Cohen, a former special counsel for the North Carolina General Assembly, who worked for the legislature for almost four decades.

“There’s been allegations of fraud and mail-in absentee voting in Bladen County in both the May Republican primary and the general election,” Cohen explained. “Just in the last half hour, the Raleigh District Attorney announced she has had an active criminal investigation since the May primary.”

“It’s alleged that perhaps absentee ballot applications were fraudulently obtained — ballots were taken from voters and destroyed or marked for a certain candidate,” he continued.

“There’s an unusually high number of black and Native American voters in that area who applied for absentee ballots and never returned them,” he added.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Larry Kramer, a famed writer and influential AIDS activist, had died at age 84. PBS host Judy Woodroof noted that Fauci and Kramer had been friends.

"In the beginning of the AIDS outbreak in the 1980s, the two of you had a pretty contentious relationship," Woodroof said. "But that changed over time."

REVEALED: An Obama-era plan to protect medical workers in a pandemic was thwarted under Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that his Democratic predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, left him ill-prepared to handle a major health crisis when, in fact, Obama’s administration left behind a comprehensive pandemic game plan that included a 69-page playbook. But Trump’s administration abandoned those Obama-era recommendations. On top of that, National Public Radio’s Brian Mann is reporting that Trump’s administration, in 2017, “stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the health care industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic such as COVID-19.”

Here’s the real reason Trump and the GOP don’t want mail-in voting

Published

on

Trump and Republicans don’t want mail-in voting this November because it blows up a couple of their most effective voter suppression schemes.

In presidential elections dating back to 2000, there’s been noticeable media coverage of long lines in majority-black precincts; commentators sometimes wonder out loud why people would have to wait in line 8 hours to vote in, for example, inner city Ohio in 2004 or Milwaukee in the 2020 primaries.
