NC-09: An elections board cover-up of DEM shenanigans in Robeson?

  According to Raleigh’s Voter Integrity Project,  that is exactly what we have, boys and girls:   Around noon today, the NC State Board of Elections ordered Robeson County election officials hand over “newly discovered” evidence that implicates high-profile national and local Democrats in a major absentee ballot harvesting operation that dwarfs the number of ballots involved in Bladen County.   “We’ve been quietly fighting for this and other evidence since…

NC-09: Surveying the post-Harris field

  Mark Harris has learned a painful lesson. After his 2014 loss in the US Senate primary, Harris decided to be a team player and campaign for nominee Thom Tillis.  While 2014 conservative standard-bearer Greg Brannon told them all to ‘pound sand,’ and went on his merry way, Harris continued to be a “good” Republican.   He lost a close primary challenge to Robert Pittenger in 2016.  And we all…

#nc-03: “Fairweather” Francis takes back his denial, packs up his carpet-bag

  It seems like just yesterday when THIS got posted on our site: (He had been.  But that’s for another time.)   Yep, Francis DeLuca — former deputy to John Hood at that toothless tiger known as Civitas —  tried to tell us all he was not interested in running to replace Walter Jones, who had let everyone know he was in his last term at the time DeLuca posted…

NC-03: Ready, Set, Vote! (Cooper’s schedule announcement answers, raises questions.)

    Well, we now know when folks will be voting to replace Walter Jones in Congress.  We just don’t know exactly HOW MANY people will be running or HOW MUCH it’s going to cost those small, poorer northeastern counties who were counting on ONE 2019 election and may now have to finance up to FOUR.  Filing for the race will occur between March 4 and March 8.  (So, some…

NC-09: Were Bladen DEMS tipped off about pending state board of elections probe of McCrae Dowless?

  THAT is what it’s starting to look like: […] The President of the Bladen County Improvement Association says he was tipped off that the North Carolina State Board of Elections would be investigating McCrae Dowless and absentee ballot programs in Bladen County during the 2018 election cycle. In an exclusive interview with WBTV, BCIA President Horace Munn says he received the tip before the 2018 primary. Shortly after getting…

EXCLUSIVE: The McCrae Dowless interview.

  The man at the center of the political theatrics surrounding the Ninth Congressional District race had a few things to tell us.  Some of it — we’ve heard already.  Some of it was news to us. On February 22, we submitted via email five questions about the saga to Leslie McCrae Dowless.  Mr. Dowless promised to review the questions with his attorney, and then get back to us with…

NC-03: The doctor is IN! (And there’s a crowd building in the waiting room.)

It’s probably good to remind the Raleigh drivebys that there is something else to do out there besides stomp on Mark Harris and stalk McCrae Dowless.  There is ANOTHER open race for Congress out on the coast, necessitated by the unfortunate and untimely passing of Walter B. Jones, Jr. It looks like the race for The Third Congressional District will have more takers than the Ninth will.  There could be…

Your authoritarian streak is showing.

  The ideology that claims to be the champion of personal freedom sure is taking a hard-nosed stance against things they don’t like.  Say something that offends one of the Left’s protected groups, and your reputation will be destroyed.  (Try being in office, or running for office, and defending the concepts that there are only two genders and men should only visit men’s restrooms and locker rooms.  Try going into…

Another double-dipper at NCGOP?

  Catherine Whiteford has worked for the NCGOP and proclaimed it needs to be “more open to progressives.”  She got her brains beat out electorally, running for NC House in 2018, by progressive Grier Martin. But the most interesting thing about her?  She was being paid CA$H by NCGOP while running for NC House.  Most organizations — and I am told the NCGOP is included here — frown upon paying…

Teflon Kim

  The third luckiest person upon the conclusion of the state elections hearings this  week — behind Dan McCready and Dallas Woodhouse — is state elections supervisor Kim Strach. The stupid, biased driveby media spent so much time focused on Mark Harris crying and where McCrae Dowless was that they neglected several glaring instances portraying the North Carolina State Board of Elections as  ONE HOT MESS and its supervisor as…
