NCGA Senator Violated Campaign Law. Where is the NC NAACP Screaming About Voter Suppression?

So, a NC state Senator apparently violated election law this campaign cycle.

Where is the NC NAACP/Moral Monday? Why aren’t they holding a press conference and screaming ‘voter suppression?

The News and Observer says this is what happened:

The State Board of Elections took action against state Sen. Angela Bryant, D-Nash, over fliers distributed by her campaign during the early voting period before Tuesday’s primaries, a board official said Thursday.

After an inquiry, the board identified legal issues with the fliers and required Bryant to sign a “Statement of Understanding” March 8, acknowledging that she understood the relevant laws about election materials.

The board also required Bryant to take out an ad in The Wilson Times. The ad, headlined “Paid for by the Committee to Elect Angela Bryant,” said fliers were distributed by the committee “in error” and said the issue had been corrected.

The fliers included the words “Keep Senator Angela Bryant” and information about her. They also showed an image of a ballot with ovals colored in for certain candidates, including Bryant.

Oh. It’s Senator Angela Bryant — a female, African American Senator.

Selective OutrageNow we know why there is no press conference thundering on about voter suppression. Had this been a Republican, we’d have wall to wall coverage of this flier.

The News and Observer says that the “African-American Caucus of the N.C. Democratic Party” filed a complaint. I’ve obtained a copy of the complaint letter and fake ballot flier mentioned.

  1. Hey, Lady Liberty 1885.

    I’d like to encourage you to blog about the injustice to Crystal Mangum, the Duke Lacrosse victim/accuser who was wrongly convicted of second degree murder in the death of her boyfriend Reginald Daye. The truths of her case have been suppressed by the mainstream media… and can be found on my blog site in the form of prosecution discovery. A few of the more pertinent truths are that no crime was committed by Mangum in Daye’s death as it was accidental and not homicidal. The stab wound which was non-fatal was successfully treated. Daye’s death was due to his elective removal from life-support due to irreversible brain death secondary to esophageal intubation in treating delirium tremens at Duke University Hospital. Nobody, except visitors to my blog site, is aware of this. In addition, the autopsy report by Dr. Clay Nichols was fraudulent with fabricated findings of injuries not sustained, and a conclusion that Daye died “secondary to complications of a stab wound to the chest”… a conclusion that is false, misleading, and without nexus to the stabbing. Not only that, but Dr. Nichols committed perjury (as did many of the prosecution witnesses) when he stated that Daye’s spleen was removed at surgery a week and a half prior to his death and was therefore not present at autopsy… a statement contradicted not only by the operative report but by his own autopsy report in which he described the organ as weighing 340 grams, having an intact capsule and red-brown color on sectioning. Judge Paul Ridgeway has been aware of the perjured testimony but has chosen to view it with a blind eye. The NC Judicial Standards Commission has also decided to look the other way in refusing to publicly admonish Judge Ridgeway.

    Lady Liberty 1885, I ask for your involvement in helping Crystal Mangum receive liberty and justice.
