In Act of Desperation, Robin Hayes Moves to Suppress Valid Provisional Votes
Larry Kissell continues to act to protect every vote cast by an 8th District voter. Robin Hayes acts to suppress them. I am heading out the door, so will take the liberty of copying and pasting the press release that just hit my in box. I'm sorry. I usually like to write my own posts.
Biscoe , NC – Robin Hayes' lawyers have now filed protests with most of the county election boards in the 8th District challenging officials to not count hundreds of provisional votes cast in last week's election.
The public documents filed on behalf of Hayes request the suppression of votes cast in Cabarrus, Cumberland, Stanly, Union, Scotland, Richmond and Hoke Counties for a variety of reasons, including registered North Carolina voters that didn't check a tiny box claiming US citizenship and completed forms not signed by precinct officials – both examples of historically valid provisional ballots.
"My opponent continues to disappoint the folks that sent him to Washington in the first place. Mr. Hayes is running his legal challenge against voters like he ran his campaign - scared, desperate and loose with the truth. I'm more determined now than ever now to fight for every voter in our district to be heard. The hard working folks here deserve a voice at the ballot box, and in Congress – not more slick Washington tactics and legal shenanigans," said Kissell.
Go Larry, Go. Thank you for protecting the democratic process.
