NC GOP Still Chasing Non-Existent Voter Fraud

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory conceded the race to state Attorney General Roy Cooper following several embarrassing revelations that forced local Republican-controlled elections boards to reject claims of fraud.

Among other cases, a 100-year-old veteran was wrongfully accused of fraud, but I may be wrong to say this is embarrassing because that would imply Republican leaders are capable of feeling shame.

They evidently cannot, because state GOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse is still screeching about fraud and calling on federal prosecutors to send unknown individuals to jail for committing unknown crimes.

"There’s not doubt in our minds that significant voting fraud took place in Bladen County, which has now been referred to the U.S. Attorney," Dallas Woodhouse, the executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party, told TPM on Tuesday. "We believe that the new U.S. attorney that’ll be appointed by Mr. Trump will look at this and potentially send people to jail.”

There's only so many ways I can creatively say that Dallas Woodhoouse is an unrepentant piece of shit. The scum of the earth. A Klansman.

You may recall that Woodhouse has conducted himself in such an ugly manner his own brother was forced to publicly call him out earlier this year.

I would not be the slightest bit surprised if federal prosecutors do take a look at reports handed to them by Woodhouse, but they aren't going to find anything "significant" if they do find anything at all.

Government officials in other states who've been handed a proverbial license to kill, such as Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, have failed to uncover any significant cases of fraud. Kobach was even handed the authority to bypass the state attorney general's office and prosecute fraud directly from his office, but he still couldn't find anything.

    The Republican party in red state after red state is engaged in a full blown, totally out in the open conspiracy to recreate the effects of the Jim Crow South and a virtual segregationist is about to be installed as Attorney General and yet Hillary Clinton’s God damned E-Mails are still treated as a bigger story by our vaunted f***ing media!

    This despite the plainly obvious fact that there is less evidence of voter fraud then is of Bigfoot or the freaken Roswell crash. Bigfoot at least has a blurry photo.

    Woodhouse did acknowledge that Cooper, the Democratic state attorney general, was the legitimate winner of the governor’s race.

    “He was elected by a majority of the people of North Carolina in a fully legitimate election,” Woodhouse told TPM. “He earned this victory, and we believe he had more votes.”

    That’s mighty white of him.

    I keep having this debate: If 3mm people voted illegally, why have the Red Shirts failed so spectacularly to produce a single one?

    They keep blaming the justice department, but that doesn’t hold up. Fox would be publishing a list of names. There’d be youtube videos. The bloviating bag of wind that is Bill O’Reilly would be doing daily exposés. Meghan Kelly would have them on her show with the face pixelated.

    If we have to keep treating this seriously, I demand that they spend equal energy on the threat of shape-shifting lizard people voting illegally. We have the same amount of evidence.
