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

Published

on

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.

Trump raked over the coals by WSJ for ‘politically stupid’ racist comments debacle

Published

on

In a brutally blunt column from the conservative editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, the editors scolded Donald Trump for being "politically stupid" by wading into a dispute between factions within the Democratic Party that has blown up in his face.

Under a headline reading, "Defining Politics Down," the editorial seemed less concerned with Trump's racist attacks and more with the fact that he has made his racism front and center as the country gears up for the 2020 election.

Dear NeverTrumpers: Either help or STFU

Published

Bill Kristol Max Boot David Frum
Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed that the NeverTrumpers — repentant Republicans and conservatives — have been offering up lots of advice for how the Democrats can win the next election. Their jackhammer advice has basically been limited to urging the party to disavow its activist, progressive members in order to secure the contrarian swing voters who cast ballots for Barack Obama twice, then switched to Donald Trump in 2016.

Before I offer up a come-to-Jesus moment for the NeverTrumpers, let me say that as many of you know, I’ve defended members of this exiled faction in the past, and continue to stand by the idea that we need to form a coalition to close the loopholes exposed by Donald Trump’s malfeasance as a means of preventing another, perhaps more dangerous monster from sashaying through the Trump-shaped hole in the wall. To be clear: I’m not talking about conceding on policy or platform planks. I’m merely suggesting a detente between voices who all agree that Trump is a menace and his presidency is an existential national crisis.

Morning Joe panel brutally dismantles Lindsey Graham for doubling down and backing Trump’s extreme racism

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough was left speechless by Sen. Lindsey Graham's impassioned defense of President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen.

The "Morning Joe" host sat in stunned silence after rolling video of the South Carolina Republican defending Trump's tweets, and doubling down by hurling his own slurs against the first-year lawmakers.

"You call Americans in Congress communists?" Scarborough said, after gathering his thoughts, "and you say they hate America? And then your punch line to that is aim higher?"

Scarborough, who served alongside Graham as a Republican congressman, said the episode was a shameful new low for the veteran lawmaker.
