  • GOP Officials Warned About Potential North Carolina Fraud After Primary

A campaign lawyer said earlier this week that it wasn't aware of any illegal conduct in the 9th District race.

"I didn't serve overseas in the Marines to come home to NC and watch a criminal, bankrolled by my opponent, take away people's very right to vote", McCready tweeted.

Republican state senators in North Carolina on Thursday demanded a new bipartisan investigation into fraud allegations, casting doubt on the impartiality of the election board. Harris won 61 percent of the absentee-by-mail vote in Bladen County, even though just 19 percent of the returned and accepted ballots came from Republicans.

Dowless earned more than $23,000 working on six campaigns dating back to 2010, and in most of those races, Dowless' candidates received a disproportionately higher percentage of absentee votes in Bladen County.

The state elections board has twice declined to certify Harris' victory and plans to hold an evidentiary hearing in the case this month.

The Democrat trailing in a North Carolina congressional race withdrew his concession Thursday as state election officials investigated allegations of absentee ballot fraud.

Although Woodhouse was careful to say "I don't think we're there yet" when asked about holding new elections, he made clear he was open to the idea. The House Administration committee has "full investigative authority to determine the victor", she said.

"If the board of elections determines there's a substantial likelihood the outcome could have been changed, then the law requires a new election", he said.

At issue is who can handle completed ballots.

They are also investigating the possibility that absentee ballots were gathered in areas considered to be supportive of McCready but never turned in.

The revelations and ensuing national news coverage have put pressure on Republicans and attracted attention from top Democrats. It also didn't certify the results of the Bladen County Commissioner District 3 and in Robeson County the District Court 16B Seat 2 race between Republican Jack Moody and Democrat Vanessa Burton.

Leading House Democrat Steny Hoyer on Tuesday said his party may not seat Harris if the election remains in question when Democrats take control of the lower chamber in January.

A state election board spokesman confirmed Thursday that subpoenas seeking documents had been sent to the Harris campaign, the Red Dome Group, which worked for Harris, and the campaign committee of the sitting Bladen sheriff. Two members of Dowless's own staff have said they collected absentee ballots at his behest, not knowing it was illegal.

But Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the state GOP, has gone from claiming this was all a Democratic conspiracy to worrying over the mounting allegations and how they may hurt the party. They said neither election boards, appointed by governors from both parties, nor prosecutors have adequately addressed recurring issues in Bladen.

"This has shaken us to the core", he said. Dan Bishop, a Charlotte Republican. Tommy Tucker of Union County.
