The more we learn, the worse it gets. It looks like a new election is the only way to solve this problem. National Republicans, who hyped almost non-existent voter fraud, are silent on election fraud. Sad!

The guy who appears to be at the heart of the mass vote-stealing scam in #NC09 wasn't just being paid by consultants for Republican Congressional candidate Mark Harris, he was being paid by the county Republican party. https://t.co/Uyzevts4ZY

Has there been a single prominent national Republican expressing concern about possible fraud in North Carolina? Because they were really losing their marbles over lawful but slow vote counting last month.

URGENT: The North Carolina GOP now has a bill that appears aimed at obstructing a fair investigation of the NC-9 election fraud scandal. This must not pass. If it does, Democrats should announce they won't seat Harris, period. https://t.co/UIIiEhAvGr

Found five elections that McCrae Dowless worked on in N.C. since 2010 where his candidate won far more of the absentee vote in Bladen County than in the election overall. https://t.co/NRjRHiiY5P

“The conservative activists who have most vocally pushed a narrative of rampant voter fraud in recent years are ignoring the unfolding drama in North Carolina.”https://t.co/CscFcF77Lk

Fascinating to watch Fox navigate North Carolina 9. Ignored totally on their opinion/most shows. How they introduced it on one of their news programs: "The left has long said there's no problem with voter fraud, so why are they changing their tune now." pic.twitter.com/Nq0ZAAdAiE

So I've written on NC-09. To me the case for fraud appears quite strong. I think the key point for fraud is that there isn't one. The case relies upon a slew of evidence, so that even if one point falls apart the case is still strong. https://t.co/RCxNsjFEhC

The silence on NC-09 from those who traditionally raise hell about voter fraud is deafening. This is an actual — and rare — case where evidence of illegality is credible and substantial. https://t.co/gWiZemhru8

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), vice ranking member on the House Oversight and Govt Reform Committee, is calling for an emergency hearing into the insane election fraud situation in NC-9. pic.twitter.com/kARnW5EKbg

Breaking on NC-9 Congressional race: Criminal investigation underway into voting irregularities in Bladen Cty North Carolina, says local DA. The investigation was initially centered on the 2016 election cycle, but now includes the 2018 election as well.

A lot of the details in this story come from a great New Yorker article that came out a couple hours ago so, I also recommend reading that: https://t.co/rIr1JPwlwa

The fraud in NC-9 looks to be the most extensive in recent history and it seems likely to have affected the outcome of the election. We need to hear from Harris about what he and his campaign knew, but it seems increasingly clear that the results of this election cannot stand. https://t.co/4AsuxjqHMA

This is not a case of "Republican voter fraud."
This IS a case of a shady operative w/ a checkered past, who has peddled his "services" to D & R candidates in the past, engaging in *absentee ballot fraud* on behalf of a GOP candidate.
Qs now: how extensive & who knew? #NC09

I don’t quite understand why every national Democrat with a platform isn’t talking about NC 9. If the shoe were on the other foot…
