A petition to remove NC Democrat Party Chair, Patsy Keever, has been filed. This filing and release apparently went out on or around May 21st.
It was filed on behalf of the African-American Caucus Forsyth County Democratic Party (AAC-FCDP), Valeria Conyers , the 2nd Vice President AAC-NCDP and Perry Graves, Member African-American Caucus Rockingham County Democratic Party AAC-NCDP.
Also, there are a slew of witnesses.
The petition states that, “There are approximately 125-250 plus petitioners and witnesses from roughly 25 to 46 NC Counties, depending on the particular allegation stated in the Petition, and the attached signatures as filed herein and as follows or thereafter before the hearing.”
The filing calls the elections in the 3rd Congressional district ‘null and void’ due to alleged improper activities by Keever as Chair.
Language like ‘manipulation’, ‘fraud’, ‘gerrymandering’, ‘disenfranchisement’ and divisiveness’ are found throughout the document.
From a 30,000 foot view, Keever is being charged with holding unconstitutional conventions, violating the Voting Rights Act and disenfranchising African-American Voters. When you get into the details, however, the charges span much more than that.
There is a giant list of grievances in the filing , a whopping 23 in all. However, one must note that grievance number one has sub-sets that used the entire alphabet from A-Z and then some, adding section AA and BB.

Read the Press Release
Since there was a press release, which one would assume means they sent copies to the media, yet I have yet to find an outlet that has reported it.
Have you heard about these charges against Keever in the media? No? Me either. Neither has Google News. Rest assured, had this been the republican party, media would have been all over it.
The Democrat party in NC has had some real internal issue lately. Remember case of Dylan Frick? Readers might recall I wrote about him and the corruption in the 8th District after NC Democrats became frustrated with their own party leadership and came to me for help.
Well, Frick’s included in the charges. See “B”, “R” and “S” under the first grievance in list. The media didn’t report on that one either.
