UPDATE: The Buncombe County GOP moves to rid itself of Yelton. See below
The Buncombe County conservative activist who told one of the “The Daily Show”‘s fake new reporters that North Carolina’s voter identification and election law changes were primarily designed to hurt Democrats (and not prevent voter fraud) said he’s happy with the comedy show’s segment.
“The comments that were made, that I said, I stand behind them,” Don Yelton told the Mountain Xpress today, an alternative weekly newspaper in Asheville.
He also told the weekly that it could have been worse – other things he said in the course of the interview were apparently more shocking.
