Motive: Absentee ballots illegally held in RNC office destroyed in firebombing

Fox and NBC News earlier reported regarding the NC RNC office that among the items the fire destroyed were completed absentee ballots. This is a major violation of NC Board of Elections rules. (source: Was the GOP Collecting Completed Absentee Ballots in NC HQ That Was Firebombed?).

The Fox video report appears to have been completely scrubbed from the Web, other than the captured and tweeted image above.


When asked if the GOP could have been collecting completed absentee voter ballots, Tracy Ream, the Director of North Carolina's Orange County Board of Elections told The New Civil Rights Movement via telephone Monday, "they cannot do that." She cited the State Board of Elections rules.

Once complete, the absentee ballot "must be returned to the county board of elections no later than 5:00 p.m. on the date of the election," the State Board of Elections website reads. "The envelope may be mailed or delivered in person to the board of elections’ office. Only the voter or the voter's near relative (spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, stepparent, stepchild or qualified legal guardian) may deliver an absentee ballot in person."

Ream told NCRM it "does not make sense" that the GOP office would be collecting completed absentee ballots, and said her office has not sent the Republican Party blank absentee ballots.

"No one would be collecting" absentee ballots, Ream told NCRM. Asked if she could imagine a scenario where the GOP could be collecting completed ballots, Ream said: "I really can't."


This leads to a possible motivation in the fire: destroy the ballots. If it was a case of anarchists burning the office (as happened 11 years ago), then the criminal act may have inadvertently revealed another criminal act by the GOP collecting holding those ballots. Or it may be a case of the members of that office did not want these votes to be counted - especially given the number of Republicans that are voting against Trump.

Just something else to consider with everything else going on.

Pretty flimsy "evidence."

The caption does not even say "completed."

Did you know that your source directly misquotes its source?

Your source:

After Sunday's despicable and horrific attack on the Orange County, North Carolina offices of the Republican party, GOP spokesperson Emily Weeks told NBC News "that materials inside, possibly including completed absentee ballots, may have been destroyed."


NBC News:

North Carolina Republican Party spokeswoman Emily Weeks told NBC News that the office is totally unusable and that materials inside may have been destroyed. The state party said completed absentee ballots were not stored at that office.

Nbc issued a retraction.




CORRECTION: A previous version of this article quoted a party official as saying completed absentee ballots might have been destroyed in the attack on the Orange County Republican Party office, which was incorrect. The North Carolina Republican Party and its county organizations do not collect completed absentee ballots

NBC edited their earlier report. They quoted Meeks correctly, but she asked them to change it after she caught hell on Twitter for it. Her twitter feed also stated "completed."

In my OP I did try to indicate that the initial report has been (or is still undergoing) a scrubbing from the Web. However one person at least managed to capture a pic of the Fox screen crawl.

Hmm..Interesting that.

Seems so much of the alternate media is just as bad as the regular media.

Emily Weeks has been trying to retract her statements to the media, where she twice claimed "completed absente ballots," insisting she meant "sample absentee ballots." More like she realized she was publicly admitting a violation of BoE rules.

edit on 17-10-2016 by Blackmarketeer because: typo: Emily Weeks, not Meeks

Interesting someone is trying to make such an accusation as this is happening.

Fits Donald's narrative quite well. Doesn't it?

Well Orange County NC is a heavy Democrat county.

Makes sense Tracy Ream, the Director of North Carolina's Orange County Board of Elections would be amplifying this.

You know the Post Office pics were hoaxes, right?

Drudge, Limbaugh Fall for Twitter Joke About Postal Worker Destroying Trump Ballots

@RandyGDub said he ‘loves’ working at an Ohio post office where he rigs the election for Hillary Clinton. Right-wing media took him seriously.


Just when you thought 2016 couldn’t get any stupider, a Twitter user who describes himself as “the cool and chill guy of online” inadvertently punked two of the most powerful figures in conservative media.

And it shows just how easy it is to goad credulous Trump-loving media figures into distributing absurdly bad information to their massive audiences.

A little after 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, Twitter user @randygdub—whose previous two tweets made fun of Breitbart and Trump acolyte Bill Mitchell—tweeted:

You don’t have to be a great intellect to get that this is obviously a joke. For starters, @randygdub’s Twitter bio says he’s from California. And it takes about 60 seconds to go through his timeline and see that many of the tweets there are, well, not meant to be taken literally.

But Jim Hoft, the sage political mind behind the GatewayPundit blog, didn’t do that. Instead, at 9:17 a.m. on Monday morning, he wrote a blog post about RandyGDub’s tweet with this headline: “POSTAL WORKER Brags Online About Destroying Trump Ballots”
