North Carolina Democrat suddenly WITHDRAWS his concession

Robert Pittenger lost his primary by a narrow margin in May, he suspected something was amiss. Usually, those witnesses are family members or friends and ballots are not supposed to be handled by a third party.

The North Carolina Democrat called on his Republican opponent, pastor Mark Harris, "to tell the American people exactly what he knew and when he knew it". Pittenger, a three-term incumbent, had received just 17.

Voting restrictions became the central issue in Georgia's close gubernatorial race between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Secretary of State Brian Kemp, with Abrams accusing Kemp of abusing his office to cement his party's hold on power.

'If they can show a substantial likelihood it could have changed the race then we fully would support a new election, ' he said.

LUMBERTON, N.C. ― McCrae Dowless, the political operative at the center of an election fraud investigation in North Carolina's 9th Congressional District, now appears to be connected to both counties in the district where a suspiciously high number of absentee ballots were never returned to election officials.

North Carolina Democrat Dan McCready has withdrawn his concession in a congressional race amid a probe of alleged widespread voter fraud.

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. Republican Mark Harris leads Democrat Dan McCready by about 900 votes, but results are not certified.

On Thursday, McCready told television station WSOC that he was withdrawing his concession and accused Harris of bankrolling "criminal activity". According to the Observer, Dowless paid people - sometimes high on opioids - in cash to collect and divert absentee ballots, an illegal action under North Carolina election laws.

'If there are not enough votes to overturn the election, then we probably need to go ahead and certify, ' said Sen.

The GOP's executive director made the statement Thursday, softening the organization's stance as allegations of absentee ballot fraud mount. The U.S. House could also rule on the election outcome.

In Bladen, 19 percent of absentee ballots counted were cast by Republicans.

He's calling for an emergency hearing. As I noted yesterday, the Constitution and the Federal Contested Elections Act of 1969 gives the House a range of options in dealing with such a challenge, including ordering a new election or just flat-out certifying McCready as the victor and seating him instead of Harris.

"If somebody said something about the absentee ballots, it is just very possible that it didn't register with us", Woodhouse told the Post. "It's unfortunate that there's a revisionist history going on".

The Robesonian has tried multiple times to speak with Burton without success, and Moody has indicated he does not want to comment. "Unless new evidence somehow clears the clouds hanging over this election, the Board of Elections should toss out the 9th District results".
