Irregularities found in second North Carolina county in contested House race

Source: CNN

A CNN review of absentee ballot envelopes has found irregularities with witness signatures in a second North Carolina county.

Dozens of absentee ballots were witnessed by four people in Robeson County, which is adjacent to Bladen County -- the place investigations by the state elections board and state and local prosecutors had been focused.

The people who witnessed multiple ballots are loosely connected to Leslie McCrae Dowless, the political operative who is being investigated for alleged election fraud.

North Carolina law requires two witnesses to sign the envelopes of the absentee ballots. Usually, those witnesses are family members or friends. Investigators in North Carolina are looking into allegations that Dowless' group picked up unsealed ballots and either witnessed them and turned them in or threw them away.

6. It's painful but necessary to watch the unfolding of this in my

Home take place. I am hoping we will come out better on the other side once all this shakes down. It is embarrassing. But I think it will be healing and healthy for our democracy in the long run.

7. Robeson is a majority-minority county

The minority is Native American, specifically Lumbee. LOTS of Oxendines and Locklears down there. There's a lot of money there too; Robeson used to be a big tobacco-growing county and when the government bought out everyone's tobacco quotas, people were smart enough not to blow it all in one place.

It's also strongly Democratic.
