GOP candidate slams his ‘arrogant’ and ‘judgmental’ son who warned him about breaking election laws in North Carolina

Published

Disgraced Republican congressional candidate Mark Harris on Thursday lobbed insults at his son, who testified on Wednesday that he had warned his father against hiring an operative known for conducting illegal ballot harvesting operations.

As reported by local news station WRAL, Harris told the North Carolina Board of Elections that he had refused to heed his son’s warnings about hiring political operative McCrae Dowless because he was a “very judgmental” person who also “has a taste of arrogance.”

However, Harris then conceded that his son “was right” in his pleas to not hire Dowless, which at the time he believed were just a result of his son “overreacting.”

Harris’s son, John, testified this week that he had tried to advise his father against hiring Dowless because of his history of conducting legally questionable ballot collection schemes.

“The key thing that I am fairly certain they do that is illegal is that they collect the completed absentee ballots and mail them all at once,” he wrote in an email to his father back in April 2017.

North Carolina’s 9th congressional district has been in political turmoil ever since it was alleged that Dowless and his associates illegally collected absentee ballots from likely Democratic voters in an effort to sway the election to Harris.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Published

on

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
