House Democrat seeks emergency hearing on North Carolina election

North Carolina candidate paid $428k to consulting firm linked to alleged ballot tampering

But Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the state GOP, has gone from claiming this was all a Democratic conspiracy to worrying over the mounting allegations and how they may hurt the party.

Pelosi pointed out that "the House still retains the right to determine who is seated" and said that if lawmakers object to Harris being seated, "we'll see how that goes".

Some voters said they handed their unsealed ballots over to one of these operatives. The board released documents showing that McCrae Dowless, the contractor hired by Red Dome, seems to have collected the most absentee ballot request forms in Bladen County this fall.

One month after the midterms, a congressional race in North Carolina is still undecided. The state Board of Elections and the Wake County district attorney have launched investigations.

The Robeson County board staff member said she didn't think that surge was due to people working for Dowless.

Democrat Dan McCready (left) and Republican Mark Harris are the candidates at the center of a contested race to represent North Carolina's 9th Congressional District.

OPEC to cut output to fix falling oil prices
President Trump recently accused the group of "ripping off the rest of the world" and keeping oil prices "artificially high" . He tells reporters the nations are "after a stable market and also a fair price for the producers as well as the consumers".

U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday that Republicans should be concerned as well, because Dowless also operated in the GOP primary, and the allegations have significance beyond North Carolina.

A very close North Carolina congressional race still hasn't been settled nearly a month after Election Day, amid an investigation into alleged absentee ballot fraud that has raised questions about the credibility of the tallied outcome.

A little background on Dowless: Dowless is the vice chair of the Bladen County Soil and Water Conservation District board.

It was close, but North Carolina Republican Mark Harris was jubilant on election night. The House Administration committee has "full investigative authority to determine the victor", she said.

If the District 9 race is not certified by the state board, the leaders of the U.S. House can select either Harris or McCready to fill the seat, Stone said. The law targeted "African-Americans with nearly surgical precision", said the 2016 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals' Fourth Circuit.

Republican Mark Harris holds a narrow lead over Democrat Dan McCready. The president raised the specter of fraud again this year, suggesting without evidence that people had donned disguises to vote a few times in midterm elections.

Klopp laments 'not cool' celebration as Liverpool ride luck against Everton
Klopp said he always knew Van Dijk would have a massive impact on arrival at the Premier League giants. As a Scouser Alexander-Arnold's wild celebrations at the end were understandable.

Pittenger's concern stemmed from the vote tallies in rural Bladen County, North Carolina, where his challenger, a pastor from the Charlotte suburbs named Mark Harris, had won 437 absentee mail-in votes.

But in recent days, with more evidence surfacing of absentee ballot fraud, including the possible destruction of ballots from Democrats, McCready withdrew his concession on Thursday, accusing Harris of knowingly supporting 'criminal activity'. But of the voters who turned in the absentee ballots, only 19 percent were registered Republicans.

McCrory, the Republican governor at the time, made his voter-fraud claims later that year after losing to Cooper.

"North Carolina doesn't allow ballot harvesting", he said.

At issue is who can handle completed ballots. If the board hasn't certified the results by January 3, when the new Congress is sworn in, any member can object to Harris being seated. That panel can open its own probe with full investigative powers, including subpoenas, hearings and even deciding which votes should count.

Drew Griffin also reported that Woodhouse will support holding an entirely new election if it turns out that the allegations of election fraud are in fact true.
