Democrat demands new election after reports of widespread vote theft by Republican operative in North Carolina

Published

The Democrat who is contesting the disputed Congressional election in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District is asking for a new election, WSOC’s Joe Bruno reported Tuesday.

Dan McCready filed a legal brief with the North Carolina State Board of Elections making the case for a do-over.

“During the 2018 election cycle, [Republican] Mark E. Harris personally sought the services of Leslie McCrae Dowless, Jr. because of Dowless’ proven history of generating a strikingly high, and downright suspicious, share of absentee-by-mail [“ABM”] votes for his clients,” the filing argued.

“In the 2018 race to represent North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District, evidence indicates that Dowless and his affiliates caused Harris’s equally unusual ABM success by conducting a large scale, organized ballot tampering enterprise for Harris’s benefit,” the filing continued.

“Though the full scope of fraudulent activity may never be known, the record makes clear that the results of the entire election are tainted, and its fairness is in doubt,” the filing continued.

“Therefore, the State Board of Elections should exercise its clear authority to order a new election,” the filing concluded.

A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
