An elections worker in North Carolina has been indicted!
On Monday, the Durham County grand jury found Richard Robert Rawling guilty for mishandling provisional ballot results during the March 2016 primary election.
This is just one more example of voter fraud from the left, a practice they’re well versed in.
It is also a great reason for just why we need a commission on voter fraud, which President Trump has been cracking down on.
After the alarming number of reports of left-wing voter fraud during the 2016 election, it is imperative that standards be set in place for 2020 and beyond.
A Durham County grand jury has indicted Richard Robert Rawling of Cary, a former Durham County elections worker, on charges related to the mishandling of provisional-ballot results during the March 2016 primary election.
The indictment was handed down on Monday on counts of obstruction of justice, which is is felony, and failure to discharge a duty of his office, which is a misdemeanor, the N.C. State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement said in a release.
Rawling worked for the Durham County Board of Elections during the March 15 primary, before resigning later that month. The N.C. State Board of Elections opened an investigation into the election in April 2016.
During that primary, a discrepancy was discovered within a week after a local canvass of votes, which appeared to be related to Durham County Board of Election’s staff counting about 200 provisional ballots twice to get the ballot count to match.
Provisional ballots are used when there are questions about a voter’s eligibility. They are often used when voters go to the wrong precinct or when their name can’t be found on the voting rolls.
Investigators from the N.C. State Board of Elections determined that Rawling, 59, ran or ordered others to run provisional ballots through tabulators more than once and made manual changes to the ballot count so the results of the provisional canvass would match the number of approved provisional ballots.
The N.C. State Board of Elections, which is now called the Bipartisan State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement, found that the irregularities resulting from Rawling’s efforts were not enough to affect any election outcomes.
It also found no evidence that Rawling altered any ballot counts to support a particular party or candidate.
“The State Board’s top priority is ensuring the integrity of elections so voters have confidence in the process,” said Kim Strach, executive director of the State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement, in a statement. “We will continue to hold accountable elections workers and voters who violate election laws.”
Inside Judicial Watch: Voter Fraud–The Untold Story
In this week’s installment of “Inside Judicial Watch,” Carter Clews sits down with Robert Popper, Director of JW’s Election Integrity Project, to discuss what no one else is telling the American public about voter fraud and election integrity.

Prior to joining the DOJ, he worked as a private attorney in New York City for 17 years. He served as trial counsel in federal and state trials, appeals, and arbitrations. His practice extended to a wide range of legal matters – including voting rights. Mr. Popper served as both trial and appellate counsel in a successful constitutional challenge alleging racial segregation in the design of New York’s congressional districts. As counsel for the plaintiffs, Mr. Popper obtained a favorable ruling from a three-judge federal panel in the Eastern District of New York, which was summarily affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Mr. Popper is a published author on the topic of voting rights law. He developed a legal standard relating to gerrymandering that is widely cited by experts and was adopted by the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission. He has spoken about voting rights to a conference of U.S. Attorneys at the National Advocacy Center, to a conference of state officials, and before countless local community representatives. He has testified before the Missouri Senate Redistricting Committee on gerrymandering. He has made radio and television appearances on behalf of the Heartland Institute.
Mr. Popper is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Northwestern University Law School. He is admitted to practice in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Postal Service in HOT WATER for Unlawful Role in Clinton Campaign!
It looks like the United States Postal Service is in some hot water for their role in illegally campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
Now, Republican lawmakers, including Senator Trey Gowdy and Ron Johnson, are spearheading an investigation into the USPS to see what wrongdoing went on during their campaigning.
At least 10 other federal agencies are suspected of having taken part in the same shady campaigning.
If anyone can get to the bottom of this, it’s Trey Gowdy, and you can be sure that the responsible parties will regret their unlawful behavior!
From Fox News
Republican lawmakers are casting a wider net in their search for wrongdoing at federal agencies in past election cycles, after learning the Postal Service violated the law by allowing employees to do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign while on leave.
The lawmakers blasted out letters on Monday to 10 other federal government agencies questioning their unpaid leave policy for union-related political work.
Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., led the charge on the review of agencies’ practices after spurring an investigation by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) beginning in October 2016. That inquiry revealed that the USPS violated federal law by letting employees perform union-funded work for Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic candidates while on leave from the agency.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., joined Johnson’s efforts this week by penning joint letters to the departments of Commerce, Homeland Security, Defense, Justice, Labor, Transportation, Treasury, Agriculture, Veterans Affairs, and the Social Security Administration Monday. The letters concerned what’s known as “union official Leave Without Pay (LWOP)” for political campaign activity.
The letters cited the OSC’s findings regarding the USPS that “only [employees] who wanted to campaign for the [union’s] endorsed candidates were given the opportunity to take several weeks of leave on short notice, over the objections of local supervisors who raised concerns about potential operational impact.” The OSC’s findings revealed that the USPS violated the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits certain political activities of federal employees. While employees are allowed to do some political work on leave, the report said the USPS showed a “bias” favoring the union’s 2016 campaign operation.
“The procedures by which federal employees request LWOP, and by which managers and supervisors consider these requests, are the product of negotiation between the agency and the employees’ collective bargaining representative,” Johnson and Gowdy wrote, requesting specific information to “ensure federal agencies are granting LWOP in a politically neutral manner.”
Johnson and Gowdy asked for information regarding “use of LWOP in the three months prior to a federal election” dating back to 2008, agreements between the agency and employees regarding their leave, written policies and all documents and communications related to the use of LWOP.
Johnson and Gowdy requested “state-by-state” data for the requested information, giving a deadline of 5 p.m. on Sept. 11.
