ROBESON COUNTY – The ever expanding list of ‘irregularities’ in certain counties during the recent elections have mostly fallen in the realm of absentee ballots. It makes sense; perpetrating fraud via absentee ballots is an easier task than attempting to commit in-person voter fraud. However, new allegations emanating from Robeson County point to fraud of the latter kind, further expanding the universe of possible fraudulent activities that seem to have infested the at least the south east corner of the Old North State.
“A new complaint and affidavit submitted by a Republican judge in Robeson County has raised new allegations of voting irregularities in the county, separate and apart from anything to do with absentee ballots. [… ]
The complaint was sent by Judge Jack Moody, a Republican who narrowly lost re-election in November’s election.
Moody’s District Court seat is among those the board voted to not certify, along with the 9th Congressional District, when it voted earlier this month to hold an evidentiary hearing to explore allegations of election fraud in Bladen and Robeson Counties.
According to the complaint submitted by Moody, the chief judge at the early voting location in Fairmont noted several instances of two individuals who entered the polling place with voters and cast their ballots for them.”
Generally, casting a ballot for another person is frowned upon by election officials. However, the Fairmont voting site operators apparently looked the other way as this happened over and over again.
In the complaint, Moody details what was going on:
“It was brought to my attention during early voting by Wesley Clark, Chief Judge, that while working in Fairmont during early voting that Lois Carter, a campaign worker for my opponent entered polling site, sat at a table and voted someone else’s ballot without reading it to other person without other person requesting help. And once she voted ballot put it in the voting machine. It is my opinion and belief this conduct and actions occurred all during early voting and on Election Day in Fairmont.”
A campaign volunteer for Moody that was at this site all day, through out the election cycle, signed an affidavit that she witnessed constant levels of, at the very least, questionable activity.
“I was told Monte was taking voters in the side door beside the buses,” Dent wrote, after saying she saw McCollum go in and out of the polling place repeatedly. “Fairmont is truly a messed up polling site.”
In an interview with WBTV on Tuesday, Dent reiterated what she saw while campaigning outside the early voting location for three weeks.
“I was there 12 and 13 hours a day. I observed things that I thought were not legal,” she said.
She said she witnessed things she thought were illegal and could have changed the outcome of the election.”
Monte McCollum has denied escorting anyone into the polling place, calling the allegations “completely bogus.”
But with the stench of scandal swirling around the 9th District, every allegation needs to be taken seriously and investigated. We posited that the more information comes to light, the more Democrats would be revealed as seasoned election fraudsters.
