Voting rights group: Investigate McCrory’s false “voter fraud” claims

Voter rights group Democracy NC is calling for a state and federal criminal investigation into false claims of voter fraud made by former governor Pat McCrory campaign during last year’s bruising gubernatorial contest.

You may remember the false accusations the surfaced after McCrory narrowly lost to Roy Cooper. McCrory, a Republican, contested the election results and dragged out the process even as GOP majorities on the State Board of Election and county election boards across the state rejected his claims of fraud.

Now Democracy NC is releasing an 16-page report on the McCrory campaign’s accusations, the people wrongfully accused of voter fraud and the “wrongdoing related to preparing, filing and promoting bogus charges of voter fraud.”

The report, the result of a five-month investigation, will be released at a press conference at 1 p.m. today outside the State Board of Elections office in Raleigh.

We’ll have more on the report after its release this afternoon.
