Democrat Calls for Emergency Hearing in North Carolina's 9th District Race Over Voter Fraud

The midterms are not over in North Carolina's 9th district. Mark Harris currently has 905 more votes than Democrat Dan McCready in the congressional race, but state officials are hesitant to certify the results after Democrats are accusing their opponents of voter fraud.

Investigators are examining whether Leslie McCrae Dowless, a longtime Bladen County operative who worked for a consultant to the Harris campaign, and a group of people loosely connected to him gathered unsealed absentee ballots, marked those ballots for their candidate, sealed them and signed as witnesses. North Carolina requires witnesses to sign absentee ballots. Usually, those witnesses are family members or friends and ballots are not supposed to be handled by a third party.

They are also investigating the possibility that absentee ballots were gathered in areas considered to be supportive of McCready but never turned in.

Some Virginia Democratic lawmakers want a congressional investigation into the matter.

"Votes have been stolen by preying on senior and minority voters, and now a cloud of doubt and suspicion hangs over this election result," according to Rep. Gerry Connolly, who sits on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

He's calling for an emergency hearing.

As for Harris, he insists he supports an investigation into voter fraud, but that it won't change the outcome. He added that the State Board of Elections should "act immediately" and certify the results because "anything else is a disservice to the people of the Ninth District."
