Gun Rights Supporters: You might have gone to bed in North Carolina, but I’m afraid you woke up in Florida... Broward County, to be exact. Remember how we won and sent a good conservative to Congress in the election held more than a month ago, namely Mark Harris, who won the 9th Congressional District race by a scant 905 votes? Leftists stealing election… right here in NC! Well, never mind. Now the left wants a “do-over,” and they will likely get it. Yep. Just like in Florida and Georgia, the leftists are now trying to steal this election, too. In fact, the North Carolina State Board of Elections has now twice refused to certify the results of the election, citing what they claim are “irregularities.” At the forefront of this effort to unseat an elected Republican is, of course, the Charlotte Observer, which is running full page articles on the effort. Conservative Mark Harris tops leftist ‘hit list’ And as you may be aware, Harris is a TRUE pro-gun conservative, who has promised to sponsor pro-gun legislation and to join the Freedom Coalition, which is chaired by Congressman (and patriot) Mark Meadows of the 11th Congressional District in western North Carolina. That, of course, places Harris at the top of the leftist hit list. The complaints center on absentee ballots turned in for (of course) Republican Mark Harris, despite the fact that even the Observer admits, “Collecting and delivering applications for absentee ballots isn’t illegal.” But the volume of absentee ballots, says the Observer, was “too high.” Translated, that means the get-out-the-vote effort for Harris was “too effective.” Indeed, one of the cases of supposed malfeasance cited by the Observer and its parent company, McClatchy Newspapers (which also owns both the Raleigh News & Observer and the Durham Herald-Sun) said her ballot was collected by a “friend of the family,” which is likely perfectly legal. Another instance cited by McClatchy involved receiving 1,000 voter registration applications from people already registered to vote which – to me – suggests an effort to ask Republicans, “Are you registered to vote? You’re not sure? Well, let’s submit another one to be on the safe side.” Again, perfectly legal. Media casts unsupported aspersions on Harris There is, apparently, one unsavory character on the fringes of the investigation, one Leslie McRae Dowless, who apparently paid two (yes, two) women to harvest absentee ballots. But ignoring for a moment that nobody has yet determined how many ballots Dowless harvested – saying only that he collected 590 APPLICATIONS for ballots, what we see here is the application of the game “some say” (as in “some say you club baby seals for sport”) – in which the speaker casts aspersions on the accused without actually citing any evidence for the accusation. The Observer plays “some say” against Harris by implying, without citing evidence, that Harris hired Dowless, who in truth may have been hired by another consulting firm. 'Not a Democrat or Republican decision’? Yeah, right... The Democrat head of the State Board of Elections has already resigned amid accusations of partisan maneuvering. But perhaps richest of all was the claim by State Board of Elections Vice Chair (and also Democrat) Joshua Malcolm, that the decision not to certify is “not a Democrat or Republican decision” while conveniently ignoring that the irregularities occurred in Bladen County (12,543 registered Democrats, but only 4,131 registered Republicans) and Robeson County (48,762 registered Democrats, but only 9,730 registered Republicans). Translated, that means in the counties of suspected fraud, Democrats outnumber Republicans by as much as 5 to 1. Democrat McCready won’t say whether ...he will vote to impeach Trump! And through all of this, of course, local and national media alike are clamoring for a “do-over” – a new election so they can install Dan McCready – who, parroting other anti-Trump Democrats, has already refused to say whether he would support impeaching Donald Trump – into Congress. "Alleged fraud clouds NC’s 9th District vote; possibility of a new election is raised” celebrates the Charlotte Observer. "A New Election Might Be the Only Way Forward in North Carolina” breathlessly announces New York Magazine. Meanwhile, Politico says: “Democrats are quickly ramping up for a sequel. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has deployed a dozen aides and lawyers to the district and the campaign has resumed daily campaign conference calls. They’re also sorting out with lawyers how to raise money under these circumstances, and at the same time calling staffers and volunteers back into action.” Right now, we can’t stop them! Here is the problem: Our gun rights political action committee, the GRNC Political Victory Fund, was largely responsible for Harris’ primary election win against incumbent (and RINO) Robert Pittenger, and played a role – through thousands of robocalls, emails and online ads – in Harris’ general election victory. But we spent everything we had to win the elections. If they succeed in requiring a new election – which is looking increasingly likely – we don’t have the resources to fight the battle again. Where you live doesn’t matter... STOP LEFTISTS FROM STEALING THIS ELECTION! So, folks, I am asking you to help us prevent the left from stealing this congressional seat – regardless of whether you live in the 9th Congressional District. Our federally registered political action committee, the GRNC Political Victory Fund (GRNC-PVF) plans on doing phone calls, email and advertising in the 9th Congressional re-vote! But we can’t do it without your help! Please help us defeat this effort to steal a North Carolina congressional seat: CONTRIBUTE TO THE GRNC POLITICAL VICTORY FUND at www.grnc.org/grnc-pvf/donate-to-grnc-pvf We absolutely MUST send Mark Harris to Congress. Armatissimi e liberissimi, F. Paul Valone P.S. Yes, I know. It’s Christmas, and you have big expenses. Unfortunately, the left never sleeps. Anything you can do will help: $100, $50, or even $25. Please help us defeat this effort by the left to steal this election!
