RALEIGH – The media jumped all over every chance to embarrass the man; they salivated as his son seem to implicate him from the witness stand; and they patted themselves on the back when the Republican candidate withdrew from a race he’d already won.
But Wake County District Attorney Lori Freeman says Rev. Mark Harris, Republican candidate (and would-be victor) in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District saga of 2018, has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in their probe of the electoral fraud case.
In other words, the media’s and the Democrats’ pointed efforts to destroy this man were misplaced at best. And all because he was a Republican.
From North State Journal:
“[…] Following more than a year of investigation by multiple State and Federal agencies into the involvement of former Congressional candidate Mark Harris and the Harris Campaign into the absentee ballot operations in Bladen County during the 2018 General Election, our office has concluded that there is not evidence which would support a criminal case against Dr. Harris and therefore, is closing the matter as to him,” said Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman earlier today.
“Nearly 600 days ago I told the voters of the 9th district that my campaign would fully cooperate with investigators in a process that would ultimately reveal insufficient evidence to overturn an election,” said Harris in a statement.
“I am personally grateful for the detailed investigation by the Wake County District Attorney and the cooperating federal and state agencies to finally restore my reputation. I trust the investigators will continue their work so North Carolina voters can be assured that their vote counts in a system that follows the rule of law,” Harris said. […]”
You think Dan McCready, or any others on the Left or in the media that tied illegal behavior directly to Harris, has called to apologize?
