NC Senate Leader’s Epic Twitter Battle with ‘Sue til Blue’ Democrat Attorney Marc Elias

RALEIGH – Republicans in the N.C. General Assembly are moving legislation to prohibit ‘sue and settle’ agreements that essentially side-step the legislature to change laws, like voting laws.

Democrats in North Carolina, and nationwide, have become quite adept at leveraging lawsuits to advance their partisan interests and grand Republican-smearing narratives.

Everything from suing over voter ID (it’s racist), suing over redistricting (it’s racist), or suing (and settling) to radically diminish election rules under the guise of Pandemic Panic (changing those rules back to the way they were is super racist).

It was the latter — a sketchy lawsuit settlement — that led to extending absentee ballot acceptance dates to NINE DAYS after the election and effectively eliminating the signature requirement for absentee ballots in North Carolina. Similar schemes were played in swing states around the country, leading to a wave of extralegal voting rule changes in the weeks leading up to the 2020 elections.

The suit in North Carolina, and many in other swing states, was brought by Democrat super-hack attorney Marc Elias. In reaction to the news that N.C. lawmakers intended to end ‘sue and settle’ ploys, Elias howled and whined on Twitter like a shyster whose con of choice is getting squeezed.

N.C. Senate Leader Phil Berger took notice of this shyster’s moaning, and what ensued was a testy Twitter battle that embodies much of today’s political atmosphere. Enjoy.

This part from Elias is rich. Elias is suggesting that because Democrat super-hacks like himself are constantly suing North Carolina over trumped up smears of racism, and that Democrat super-hacks like N.C. Attorney General Josh Stein literally abandon their constitutional duties to effectively defend the State, that the ensuing legal costs to mount a defense….are Republicans’ fault. We know; LOL.

Berger came back with the sauce:

Ouch. As you can see, Elias usually has a finger in the pie of every unscrupulous scheme the Democrats are baking at any given moment.

Hopefully the General Assembly passes this legislation to prevent another ‘Sue and Settle’ agreement designed to circumvent the legislative branch in changing laws. Moreover, we hope the legislature passes the Senate bill requiring votes be cast, in-person or by mail, on or before election day (not NINE days after) so elections can reclaim some credibility in the cycles to come.
