NC GOP Admits it Illegally Stashed Completed Absentee Ballots in Firebombed Office

In the hours since a North Carolina Republican Party office was firebombed while no one was in it, reactions have been flying from all sides. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton offered words of support, while Republican nominee insisted, without a shred of evidence, that Clinton’s supporters were behind it.

Trump’s suspicious response has led to the question of whether he himself was behind it. But now comes a shocking revelation of a different kind: the GOP was illegally stashing completed Absentee ballots in that office.

The admission came from North Carolina Republican Party spokeswoman Emily Weeks herself, when she told NBC News that the items destroyed in the burned office included “completed absentee ballots.” It immediately came off as an attempt at claiming the Election was being rigged by whoever burned down the office, wiping away some people’s votes in the process.

But that quickly led to the revelation across social media that stashing completed Absentee ballots in such an office would have been illegal to begin with, she then changed her story, insisting that “the ballots were not stored at that office.” So her position now appears to be that completed Absentee ballots were destroyed in that office even though they weren’t in that office. In other words, was she lying when she claimed the ballots were destroyed in the fire, or was she lying when she subsequently claimed there were no such ballots in the office? She can’t have been telling the truth both times.
