State Board of Elections delays Hise hearing, will hear other interesting cases

Wednesday’s meeting of the state Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement won’t feature the hearing planned for Sen. Ralph Hise, whose campaign finance case has been in the investigation stage for nearly two years.

Policy Watch reported a back-and-forth over a proposed delay of the hearing last week. The Hise hearing was pulled from Wednesday’s agenda over the weekend as disagreements between the board and its staff over whether the investigation was complete enough for a hearing led to partisan bickering on the board and beyond.

Wednesday’s meeting will still feature several interesting cases, including  Rep. Rodney Moore’s (D-Mecklenberg) alleged $10,000 in  unreported campaign contributions . 

The board will also hold a hearing on the removal of Cornelia Cree, a Republican member of the Haywood County Board of Elections who made posts on social media accusing Democrats of  to legalizing pedophilia as part of a bizarre conspiracy theory about winning the Catholic vote.

The board will also discuss the settlement of one of the largest campaign donation forfeitures in state history, in which 48 improper donations from the Pfizer Inc. political action committee were forfeited by political campaigns and committees across the state.
