Bishop Comments on Letter to NC Board of Elections from House Administration Committee
Congressman Dan Bishop (NC-09) released the following statement on a letter from Ranking Member Rodney Davis of the Committee on House Administration to the members of the North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE) and elections directors in all 100 North Carolina counties.
"The blatant attempt of Governor Cooper's election board, Attorney General Stein, and national Democrat operatives to manipulate the integrity of an ongoing election has gotten the attention of the House of Representatives who are, rightfully, disturbed and threatening to investigate if their changes are implemented," said Rep. Bishop. "These changes would roll back the protections put in place after election fraud left our district--North Carolina's Ninth Congressional District--without a representative for nine months. More concerning, NCSBE tried to implement massive changes after over 320,000 North Carolinians already voted, meaning different rules based on when you vote. The changes were put on hold by a legitimate judge, but NCSBE have proved they must be held accountable for their partisan attacks on our election integrity," concluded Bishop.
The letter, authored by Ranking Member Davis and sent to the NCSBE and North Carolina's 100 county board of elections directors, detailed the questionable motivations of the changes and the logistical challenges of altering the elections process of an election already underway. The Ranking Member asserted that the Committee on House Administration would not hesitate to exercise its authority to conduct an investigation on behalf of the House of Representatives.
