In a filing made late Thursday night to the Federal Election Commission, the campaign of Republican Mark Harris of North Carolina, which has come under fire for possible absentee ballot fraud in the 2018 elections, listed a debt of $34,310 to an outside GOP consulting group which was tasked with absentee ballot work in Bladen County, the epicenter of fraud allegations in the race for North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District.
The submission, made at 10:12 pm on Thursday night by the Harris campaign, was the first public admission by the candidate that he had hired the Red Dome Group specifically to [More]

A month after Election Day, Rep. David Valadao (R-CA) conceded defeat to challenger T.J. Cox on Thursday, as Republicans lost a seventh U.S. House seat to Democrats in California, pushing the party’s net gains to 40 seats in the 2018 mid-term elections, as Democrats triumphed in yet another Congressional district which had voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
A three-term more moderate Republican, Valadao had led by almost eight points on the night of the elections, but mail-in ballots, absentees and provisionals ran against him in the weeks of slow election counting in California, as Cox took the lead last week [More]

With most work of the government interrupted this week by the ceremonies honoring the late President George H.W. Bush, the House and Senate on Thursday approved a two-week stop gap funding plan for part of the federal government, re-setting a partisal government shutdown deadline for December 21, as the two sides seem no closer to a deal on money that the President wants for his wall along the Mexican border.
“The idea that the American taxpayer now has to foot the bill doesn’t make sense,” said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, who mocked the President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign chant that [More]

With allegations that absentee ballot fraud may have delivered victory to a new Republican lawmaker from North Carolina, and a newly-elected GOP member admitting he broke federal campaign fundraising laws during his 2018 election bid in Florida, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that it’s possible neither of the Republicans who won those races in November will be sworn-in when the 116th Congress convenes in January.
“The House still retains the right to decide who is seated. That is one of the powers of the House of Representatives,” said Pelosi, who is in line to be Speaker of [More]

Along with calling for an investigation of possible absentee ballot fraud in a Congressional election in North Carolina, Democrats are now raising their voices about a Republican who won a U.S. House seat in Florida, after Rep.-elect Ross Spano (R-FL) acknowledged that he may have broken federal election laws by accepting large loans from two friends and then diverting much of the money into his own campaign as ‘personal funds.’
“Ross Spano knew exactly what he was doing when he took personal loans and used them as campaign funds, which is against the law,” the Florida Democratic Party said on Twitter. [More]

With more evidence surfacing of possible election fraud in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District, but no concrete indication yet as to how state elections officials will deal with the questions involved in the race, Democrats on Capitol Hill called Wednesday for an investigation, saying the Congress needs to review evidence of possible absentee ballot fraud.
“While the Republican majority is once again chasing conspiracies, real election fraud is playing out right before us,” said Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA), who called on Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to ‘hold an emergency hearing’ this month on the [More]

The nation’s capital saluted the 41st President of the United States for one final time on Wednesday, with America’s leaders past and present gathering to honor former President George H.W. Bush, who died last Friday at the age of 94, as Mr. Bush was praised as a family man with a big heart, who will be remembered for much more than what he did in his four years in the White House.
Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush, delivered an emotional eulogy, calling his father a patriot for leaving school to go into military service in World War II.
“The horizons [More]

President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser should not face time in prison, the Special Counsel’s office told a federal judge in Washington on Tuesday, as Robert Mueller’s team cited extensive assistance by Michael Flynn not only with the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, but also with at least two other unnamed investigations.
In a heavily redacted submission to a federal judge overseeing Flynn’s case, the Special Counsel’s office said Flynn, “deserves credit for accepting responsibility in a timely fashion and substantially assisting the government,” as Mueller said Flynn provided “firsthand information about the content and context of [More]

The National Republican Congressional Committee – the election arm of Republicans in the U.S. House – reported on Wednesday that it was the target of a ‘cyber intrusion’ during the 2018 election campaign, with reports indicating those responsible may have been located outside the United States.
“The NRCC can confirm that it was the victim of a cyber intrusion by an unknown entity,” the group said in a written statement sent to reporters.
The story was first reported by Politico, which said the GOP believed a foreign entity was responsible.
The NRCC said it notified the FBI, and launched an internal [More]

With less than a month before the 116th Congress convenes, more evidence surfaced Tuesday in North Carolina which points to the strong possibility of election fraud involving supporters of a victorious GOP candidate for the U.S. House, as more people acknowledged being paid to collect absentee ballots, while a top Democrat in the Congress raised red flags as to whether Republican Mark Harris will take his seat in January, saying there is a ‘very substantial question’ as to the integrity of the Ninth District tally.
The latest revelations focus on absentee ballots requested in Bladen County, North Carolina, where [More]
