Statement on Democracy NC Press Conference 9/10/2014

While we haven’t yet seen the full Democracy NC report, we stand in support of North Carolina’s current leadership for displaying courage by seriously investigating 81 cases of deceased voter ID theft, 165 people forced to vote provisionally after being told that somebody had already voted in their name and the 36,515 suspected cases of vote fraud through multi-state double voting. While some activists groups tend to ignore such fraud as “insignificant,” we argue that even one stolen vote is a crime against our entire constitutional system because it weakens public trust in our government. Laws directed at preventing such widespread vote fraud should be applauded rather than attacked.
