I thought in a year that Republicans seemed to be taking every seat, my adopted home State, North Carolina, seemed to be bucking the trend. While we delivered the Presidency and the Senate to Republicans, for some odd reason, these same people voted against a Republican Governor that has done a fantastic job. Whereas near disasters and potential disasters on Democrat Bev Perdue's watch were turned into disasters, Governor McCrory handled Hurricane Matthew as well as can be expected. But McCrory has done most things right. So why did NC voters turn against him?
As it turns out, they may not have turned against the Governor. Instead, it appears there may have been some vote fraud going on. Matt Vespa at Townhall.com reports that North Carolina Gubinatorial Recoun: Protest Filed in 11 More Counties Over Fraudulent Absentee Ballots
In addition to funneling money to the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC, the North Carolina Democratic Party simultaneously transferred money to political action committees in these 11 counties. Similar absentee voting and handwriting patterns as in Bladen County have been discovered in at least one of these counties, suggesting these PACs may have been harvesting and witnessing multiple absentee ballots as well.Whenever I have brought up the notion of vote fraud, I usually get the moral equivalence arguement-both sides do it. I also acknowledge that that may be so, for Heaven knows there are no saints on the Republican side either. But, from the Nixon-Kennedy election on down, I never hear or read about a Republican win because of voter fraud. when I hear or read about it, it is always Democrats. This leads me to believe that voter fraud is a distinctly Democrat form of corruption. And the first clue that it is a uniquely Democrat form of corruption is that the Democrats are always the first, and the loudest, to yell that there is no voter fraud.
As David Codrea is fond of saying, every day is opposite day with these people.
