NC GOP Softens Opposition To New Election In District With Fraud Probe

Source: Talking Points Memo

The North Carolina Republican Party said Thursday that it would be open to a new election in the state’s ninth U.S. congressional district, where an absentee ballot probe is underway, if investigators can show “substantial likelihood” that the alleged fraud scheme changed the outcome of the race. Republican candidate Mark Harris unofficially leads in the race by just 905 votes over the Democrat Dan McCready.

“If they can show with certainty that the outcome could NOT have been changed, they need to certify Mr. Harris and continue to support all state and federal criminal investigations,” Dallas Woodhouse (pictured above), the executive director of the state’s GOP, told TPM in an email.


“If they can show a substantial likelihood it could have changed the race then we fully would support a new election,” he said. “If they hold a public hearing and simply can’t determine one way or the other then, We would not oppose a short delay on the question of certification until they have more answers.”

Earlier this week, Woodhouse was pushing for the state board of elections to “immediately” certify Harris’ victory while it continued its investigation.

1. NC GOP have to distance themselves if possible from what local GOP

operatives did and have done.

Fighting it only makes themselves look involved

5. Yep, could be. In Illinois, local county organizations are not lockstep with state party and

why the state GOP be looking at separation unless the trail leads back to them. Then they are toast too.

6. New election? Screw that! We may have won the first one! Count 'em,

MAKE ARRESTS, then consider option for a re election.

The arrests ought to sew up the outcome if we have to resort to a repeat.

11. If the allegation is that absentee ballots were messed up with and possibly destroyed,

what exactly do you propose to count? You can't count something that no longer exists. The only solution is to have a new election, and presumably republicans would have to have a new primary first.

7. It Is Much Easier to Conduct Election Fraud Through Vote By Mail

Yet, since VBM ballots often lean Republican, they say nothing.

12. Let the Cheaters Decide What Happens Next, Right?

Yeah by all means let's permit the corrupt GOP cretins that got caught stealing another election to dictate the terms moving forward. Their candidate Harris hired the guy caught tampering with absentee ballots. He should forfeit the election from that alone. These Republicans from North Carolina appear to be virulent dickheads. Same as the ones in MI and WI
