NCDP Statement on NCGOP Obstruction of Justice

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement following North Carolina Republican Party leaders’ decision to obstruct an investigation into NC-09:

“North Carolina Republican Party leaders are refusing to do their jobs and submit nominees for a new state board of elections, derailing any investigations and public hearings around potential election fraud in NC-09. Now we know why. North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Robin Hayes and Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse are on a subpoena list to appear at a public hearing. These Republican leaders are obstructing justice to quash the investigation and get out of revealing at a public hearing what they knew and when.

“Our state is still grappling with widespread, systematic election fraud committed on behalf of the Mark Harris campaign, and a new state board is critical to restoring people’s trust in our elections. Republican leaders need to do their jobs, stop trying to derail this critical investigation to protect their own hides, and submit nominees.”
