North Carolina’s State Board of Elections ordered local election boards Monday night to dismiss any election protest from Gov. Pat McCrory (R) that “merely disputes the eligibility of a voter.”
The dismissal follows election protests filed in 52 counties by the McCrory campaign alleging that ballots were cast by dead people, felons or voters who cast ballots in multiple states (even though it’s unlikely voter fraud is the reason behind any irregularities).
“This is a devastating blow to the McCrory campaign and further evidence that there is no path to victory for Governor McCrory,” said Trey Nix, the campaign manager for Cooper for NC, in a statement. “Roy Cooper’s lead has grown to over 9,000 votes as Republican claims of voter fraud have been routinely rejected by members of their own party. It’s time for Governor McCrory to respect the will of the voters.”
County boards must continue to investigate claims surrounding possible violations of election law and allegations that would affect enough votes to alter the outcome of the race. Cooper is ahead by 9,700 votes as of Monday night, according to state election counts.
Face it, Pat, you're an asshole, North Carolinians know it, and it's high time you accepted the fact that your constituents have voted your sorry ass out of office. Hear that distant music? It's the fat lady, and she's singing just for you. So stfu and start packing your bags already.
Seriously, isn't it nice to know that sometimes assholes DO lose? I'll take whatever I can get these days, man. *sigh*
