Published

The North Carolina Board of Elections on Monday revealed that its investigation into the 2018 District 9 congressional election had been met with obstruction by people who funded the ballot fraud that was allegedly committed by supporters of Republican candidate Mark Harris.

In a hearing on Monday, State Board of Elections Director Kim Strach said that the investigation into the District 9 election has found a “coordinated, unlawful and substantially resourced absentee ballot operation.”

McCrae Dowless, a political consultant for Harris, came under suspicion after his candidate appeared to defeat Democrat Dan McCready by just over 900 votes. The elections board presented evidence on Monday that the number of tainted ballots appeared to be greater than the margin of Harris’ victory.

The investigators also said that there had been obstruction in the case, suggesting that they were not able to interview two GOP donors who are thought to have funded Dowless’ operation.

On Friday, the Indy reported that Conrad James, a community organizer in Raleigh, North Carolina, was raided by police in the dead of night and arrested — just hours after he told the Raleigh City Council he plans to sue on behalf of Black Lives Matter protesters.

"Right now, what we’re doing is forcing demands that need to be met in order to meet the same type of demands that happened at the Geneva Convention,” said James at a city council meeting on Thursday night. “You guys committed an act of war, a war crime. A bunch of journalists out in California also had acts of war placed upon them, and they filed a class-action lawsuit. So this is the first time that we are going to notify you guys of the class-action lawsuit that all the protesters will have at your door tomorrow. Because the city attorney needs to defend the war crimes that were voted upon by the city.”
