Red Dome Group a no-show at yesterday’s nonprofit event, along with its money

Understatement of the year? A screenshot from Red Dome Group’s website.

Red Dome Group, the scandal-ridden political strategy and consulting firm behind the equally scandal-ridden Mark Harris congressional campaign has yet to pay money it owes a local nonprofit — money that might never materialize.

Red Dome requested a $2,000 sponsorship for the NC Free Enterprise Foundation‘s Annual Leadership luncheon, held Dec. 5, said NCFEF Executive Director Jonathan Kappler. Red Dome’s logo appeared on a brochure distributed at the event.

“I’ve not received their money,” Kappler said. “And I don’t know if I will.”

Kappler said he had no interaction with Red Dome. The firm requested a sponsorship on the morning of Nov. 30, shortly before the state board of elections announced it would not certify the Ninth Congressional District results because of ballot irregularities. “The timing was weird,” Kappler said.

At least two dozen companies sponsored the event, including Smithfield Foods, Duke Energy, lobbying and law firm Troutman Sanders, and Lime Bike.

“Nobody from Red Dome showed up,” Kappler said. “That’s not a surprise to me.”

No one answered the phone at Red Dome’s offices in Charlotte, which orchestrated Harris’s campaign strategy.

Red Dome continues to do business in North Carolina even though the Secretary of State’s Office administratively dissolved the company’s incorporation in August 2017. The firm had failed to file its required annual reports.

Red Dome incorporated in North Carolina in 2013. William Todd Poole and Scott Andrew Yates were listed as company principals.
