Dear Lawmakers, It’s time to correct some misinformation on Ten-Percent Grange’s “Bipartisan” election bill (HB1169) and rethink the bill’s most dangerous features.

House Approves Three (no longer four) Ways to Steal Elections

[Correction: While Multipartisan Assistance Teams are still a major vulnerability, a Senate committee debate on June 2, 2020, has convinced us that the Legislature has mitigated this problem adequately.

Is the DOJ Targeting McCrae Dowless?

May 14, 2020 (Wilmington, NC) Some bizarre behavior coming out of US Attorney Robert J. “Bobby” Higdon Jr.’s office, in the matter of Leslie McCrae Dowless Jr., suggest that LTG Michael Flynn might not be the only person being targeted by so-called “Deep State” operatives, lurking within our government.
