According to local voters, a candidate for the Cabarrus County School Board allegedly has been concealing a 2017 DWI arrest from the public.
According to documents sent to me by multiple parties in Cabarrus County, it appears that Cabarrus School Board Candidate, Hunter Moore (19 years-old at the time) racked up a “single vehicle accident” in 2017.
Police reports show Moore lost control of his vehicle and landed in a ditch. Moore pled guilty to “Driving After Consuming” on April 18, 2018.
Moore was apparently sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation and limited driving privileges in accordance with North Carolina General Statute 20-179-3.
No news outlets have picked up on Moore’s arrest and subsequent sentencing. I was unable to locate any disclosure of this arrest by Moore either.
If Moore was able to win a seat on the Cabarrus County School Board, he would have to then take and pass the North Carolina school personal criminal history check.
NC General Statute 115C-332
(a) (1) “Criminal history” means a county, state, or federal criminal history of conviction of a crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, that indicates the employee (i) poses a threat to the physical safety of students or personnel, or (ii) has demonstrated that he or she does not have the integrity or honesty to fulfill his or her duties as public school personnel.
The statute has a long list of crimes and criminal history items and includes “alcohol-related offenses such as sale to underage persons in violation of G.S. 18B-302 or driving while impaired in violation of G.S. 20-138.1 through G.S. 20-138.5.”
Moore. who is barely out of high school, is running as a Republican but his rhetoric is very buzzwordy and Progressive Democrat sounding.
He’s also hanging around with the pretend Republicans in the area like Dianne Honeycutt and her pal, Leigh Brown, a.k.a. The Hair.
One might recall the Cabarrus County Republicans denounced both of them back in 2014 for pretending to be Republicans?
No one can forget The Hair.
She’s toned down her tresses, but it’s hard to forget the “DemoPublicanRepubliCrat” who ran for governor and who endorsed the idea of swapping party affiliation in order to manipulate elections.
I reached out to the Moore campaign for comment and have not received a reply as of the release of this article.
How old is he now, 20? Running for School Board?
