McCrae Dowless Was No Stranger To NC Election Fraud Probes Before Midterms

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Long before accusations of absentee ballot fraud in a small North Carolina county cast doubt on the results of a heated 2018 congressional race, a state elections investigator spent weeks probing whether the man at the center of the current scandal was among a group buying votes. That 2010 investigation was one of at least a half dozen instances over the last nine years that prosecutors and elections officials received complaints of serious elections irregularities in Blad...

Harris Shutters State Campaign Cmte. In Another Sign Of Her 2020 Intentions

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been openly flirting with a 2020 presidential bid for some time, and has done little to combat rumors that she’s planning to toss her hat in the ring. With the release of her memoir and a schedule jam-packed with media appearances over the coming weeks, the subtlety is wearing thin. During an interview on “The View” Tuesday, Harris duped the show’s co-hosts into thinking she was about to announce her 2020 bid on their show. “I am pleased to announce on ‘The View’...

Mark Harris Flees Media Questions, Sets Off Fire Alarm

Mark Harris, the Republican congressional candidate in North Carolina currently caught up in an investigation of alleged ballot fraud, isn’t keen to speak to the media. So much so, we saw Monday night, that he’s willing to set off a fire alarm to avoid it. Harris took an unusual route out of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center on Monday after speaking to the Mecklenburg County Republicans, eventually setting off the building’s fire alarm in a sprint away from curious reporters.

Harris’ Prosecutorial Past Defense In Memoir Ramps Up 2020 Speculation

WASHINGTON (AP) — As she nears a decision on whether to seek the presidency, Sen. Kamala Harris is taking on what could be a hurdle in a Democratic primary: her past as a prosecutor. In her memoir published Tuesday, the California Democrat describes herself as a “progressive prosecutor” and says it’s a “false choice” to decide between supporting the police and advocating for greater scrutiny of law enforcement. The argument is aimed at liberal critics of her record who argue she was sometimes ...
