Shady North Carolina election just got even shadier: Republican candidate knew suspected vote-rigger

Quote:
Mark Harris reportedly even recommended his campaign's "independent contractor" to other politicians.


Quote:
Fear-mongering about non-existent voter fraud has become a staple of conservatism — and not just by President Alex Jones Donald Trump, the world’s most prominent promoter of baseless conspiracy theories.

Even supposedly “reasonable” Republicans like outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have amplified absurd claims of voter fraud following last month’s midterm elections.

But something seems a little fishy about Republican candidate Mark Harris’ narrow lead over Democrat Dan McCready in North Carolina’s 9th congressional district.

On Friday, the state’s Board of Elections decided it would not certify the results, citing an investigation into possible election fraud over voting irregularities and allegations of ballot tampering.

This still-undecided race became even more suspicious on Monday....

Quote:
Legum explained why the emergence of Leslie McCrae Dowless, who was an “independent contractor” for Harris’ campaign, is bad news for Republicans:
Quote:
…Leslie McCrae Dowless, the man at the center of the controversy…has previously been convicted of felony fraud. In 2016, McCrae Dowless admitted to running an operation where he paid people for each absentee ballot they were able to collect. The operating allegedly involved paying “people to obtain absentee ballots, fill them out, and cast their votes on someone else’s behalf,” according to an exposé on This American Life.
Quote:
Now the Charlotte Observer reports that Harris, a pastor who wishes anti-sodomy laws still existed, knew Dowless and recommended the “convicted felon who faced jail time for fraud and perjury” to other politicians.

Dowless has reportedly “been paid by at least nine candidates, all for get-out-the-vote work.”
Big Hootenanny for the Democrats.

Big Hootenanny for the Democrats.
It probably won't happen, but imagine this becoming a do-over, then the Democrat winning and flipping this seat.

D+41?
