Democrats Won’t Seat A North Carolina Republican Amid Election Fraud
Quote:
Amid credible allegations of election fraud in North Carolina, Democratic leaders announced Friday they will not seat Republican Mark Harris, who ran in the state’s 9th Congressional District, and will instead leave the House seat vacant.

“Given the now well-documented election fraud that took place in NC-09, Democrats would object to any attempt by [Mark] Harris to be seated on January 3,” incoming House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said in a statement to The Washington Post. “In this instance, the integrity of our democratic process outweighs concerns about the seat being vacant at the start of the new Congress.”

The announcement comes the day North Carolina dissolved its elections board without certifying the November elections results and just days before the start of the new Congress.

Evidence of election fraud swaying the vote in favor of Harris has mounted in the weeks since the election. Most of it suggests that McCrae Dowless, an operative working on behalf of the Harris campaign, improperly collected absentee ballots from voters in the district’s Bladen and Robeson counties, which both saw an unusually high number of absentee ballots that went unreturned to state officials.

Most recently, Bladen County’s former elections board vice chair gave a sworn statement that his office received “several” forged request forms for absentee ballots during last month’s election.

Elect a Democrat or you lose your representation in the House. As Stalin famously said it's the ones that count the votes that matter. Latter day Resistance Democrats hew to the words of the dictator.

people were paid to pick up unsealed ballots and trash democrat votes but turn in republican ones for (governor)
the guy who paid them works for the R governor elect and has worked in this same capacity and even been jailed (or fined?) for such activity before.

If that could be proven then the ballots would be disqualified and the perpetrators punished. But no, innuendo is sufficient to deny the people of the district representation if the accusations are directed against a Republican. Democrats couldn't steal the election outright so they did the next best thing, serves them right for voting Republican.

As Congress convenes, Mark Harris goes to court and meets with investigators in Raleigh

As Congress convenes Democrats have succeeded in depriving the People of the Congressional district of representation. What a wonderful tactic for undermining elections with investigations.

You do know that stories about Democrats in Congress not seating Harris are really not the story here, right? The North Carolina Board of Elections haven't certified a winner of this district. There’s no one to seat.

You know that Democrats have deprived the People of representation by allegations. The local Republican party has insisted the Republican be declared the winner but just like with the Mueller witchhunt unproven allegations must be treated as truth.

Correct...

Instead of saying "You will be seated UNTIL it is proven illegalities occurred.", they're saying "You will NOT be seated even though no one has been found guilty of illegalities...Someone might, in the future, so we'll punish you now."...
