Editorial: McCrory campaign should face trial for false voter fraud claims

For several weeks after voting in November 2016, the election for North Carolina governor was huge news. With a narrow margin of slightly more than 10,000 votes for Democrat Roy Cooper, Republican incumbent Pat McCrory was desperately seeking to either find more votes for himself or cut the votes for Cooper.

Typically, campaigns challenge election results because technology failed -- causing votes to be miscounted or disrupting the time and access to the polls.

But 2016 brought a harmful twist. A desperate McCrory claimed massive voter fraud was the cause of his deficit. Cooper’s tally was boosted, McCrory claimed, by “counting the votes of dead people and felons.”

To manufacture proof for the unfounded accusations, dozens, perhaps hundreds, of unsuspecting, civic-minded citizens were falsely and irresponsibly accused of election fraud – a felony. Their names and addresses were revealed in their communities, broadcast over the airwaves and printed on the pages of local newspapers. They have gone to court accusing the McCrory campaign and those it hired of defamation, want the record cleared and are asking for monetary damages.

3. Yes, but look what they did to him

First, they tried to overturn the election, then they began trying to strip him of powers. Cooper had to go to court to stop them front destroying the office of governor. It was the most disgusting thing I had even seen NC do, and I was stationed there !!
