Hillary Lawyer Calls On NC GOP Governor To Stop Recount Despite Tighter Race Than WI, MI & PA

Tyler Durden's picture

Well this is awkward.  Just two days after confirming that he would participate in Jill Stein's recounts in WI, MI and PA, Hillary campaign attorney, Marc Elias, is now publicly calling on North Carolina Republican Gubernatorial candidate, Pat McCrory, to halt his recount efforts and concede his race.


Ironically, Elias cites an insurmountable 9,133 vote margin as the basis for his plea even though that is a tighter margin than the 22,871 vote gap between Trump and Hillary in WI...



...11,612 vote gap in MI...



...and the 66,236 gap in PA.



Are all politicians afflicted with the same disease that allows them to be so blatantly hypocritical?  Did he simply think that no one would notice?  These aren't rhetorical questions, Marc, we would really like to better understand your process for rationalizing these sorts of things in your head.

Pot Kettle


Of course, we assume this unique ability to rationalize all sides of seemingly contradictory viewpoints is exactly the personality trait that George Soros was looking for when he went shopping for a lawyer to whom he could give $5mm to fight voter ID laws.

The lawyer, Marc Elias, who specializes in voter-protection issues, was in contact with Mr. Soros in January 2014 when Mr. Elias was exploring a series of federal lawsuits before that year’s midterm election and in advance of the 2016 campaign, according to Mr. Soros’s political adviser, Michael Vachon. (Mr. Elias declined to comment on Friday about the funding of the lawsuits.)


The goal is to try to influence voting rules in states where Republican governors and Republican-led legislatures have enacted election laws since 2010, and to be ready to intervene if additional measures are passed over the next 17 months.


Mr. Soros described himself as “proud” to be part of the legal battles. “We hope to see these unfair laws, which often disproportionately affect the most vulnerable in our society, repealed,” he said.


Two suits that Mr. Soros is supporting were filed in Ohio and in Wisconsin last month. He is also helping to pay for a case that Mr. Elias and several other groups filed last year in North Carolina.


Democrats say the new laws disproportionately affect the poor, minorities and young people. A Government Accountability Office study last October found that states with more stringent voter identification laws had a larger decline in voter turnout than states that did not have such new restrictions.

After all, one has to be somewhat delusional to assert that showing ID to vote somehow disenfranchises low-income and minority voters while simultaneously refusing to acknowledge that voter fraud, which is tacitly tolerated in the absence of voter ID laws, somehow doesn't result in the same disenfranchisement.

At this point I do believe she fears just how much fraud will actually be uncovered.

Yes they do fear a serious investigation, which is why leftoids are trying to shut down citizen journalists trying to investigate pizzagate. http://www.truthjustice.net/politics/massive-cover-up-of-pizzagate-child...

Put Caligula with Cankles in jail. Investigate Podestagate. 

How is pizagate a trump conspiracy if the co-founder of Huffington Post died after tweeting podesta's pedo activities?

Ariana Huffington WHERE ARE YOU? WTF have you become? You KNOW thats the question Breitbart's GHOST is asking you!

NC and VA were 2 big "fix" states for Hillary. Many invalid votes cast there.

Don't want to sound overly dramatic but this is, without question, our last chance to save the Republic. It is not so much about Trump as it is We The People, whom he swears to represent. By electing him, by overcoming the programming and sheer hate from the left we won a major, decisive battle. They are shellshocked. But if we are not vigilant, they will regroup and attack again. Clearly, it is Pizzagate they fear the most. Don't let it rest, mention it to everyone you know. When the tipping point is reached they will have nowhere to run. Now, who is with us??!!!!??!

What if pizzagate is a false flag?  A set up to destroy alt media?

anecdotal but I live in NC  my daughter and her friend went to vote on voting day and they were told they had already voted.  She went into a room where they then asked for ID and let her vote a provisional ballot.  she told me the room was filled with similar cases of similar people and the peculiar thing is most were registered as unaffiliated

DeadFred's picture

I thought they weren't allowed to ask for ID. I wonder how many times she voted that day?

GodSaveTheSouth's picture

My brother lives in Winston-Salem and has voted at the same polling place for the last 12 years.  This year, he was informed at the poll that his polling place was listed across town.  He was filling out his provisional when several more people came in behind him complaining of the same situation. 

Socratic Dog's picture

Anecdotal?  You recount a case of obvious election fraud, to which your daughter was a witness, and it's just "anecdotal"?

That anecdote, friend, is enough to put a lot of people in prison.  It's more than 'anecdotal".

This "it's just anecdotal" put down is routinely used against the victims of medication side effects.  Same with vaccinations.  Your kid gets a shot, convulses before he leaves the doctors office, wakes up the next day a drooling idiot, but it's "just anecdotal".  Nothing to do with the vaccination.

Don't internalize their shit.  The first step in the scientific process is to observe.  Anecdote, that's right.

CNN should be happy that they have at least one viewer ;-)

For the #pizzagate non-believers - THIS AIN'T THE FIRST TIME IT HAS COME UP - Andrew Breitbart - Check out what he wrote back in 2011 on Twitter:


Brandon Darby was also all over this back then as well. For some reason - not much to say about it now. Breitbart dead, maybe Darby knows his life is at stake to go deeper?

amenlight's picture

Andrew Breibart knew about Pizzagate and seems to have been silenced!!!They tried to silenced Julian Assange also after Pizzagate appeared in the Podesta E- Mails that Wikileaks published. John Kerry was in London in Oct 16 and on Oct 18 Assange internet was cut off. Podesta was in London in Oct 21-23 and met with the mayor of London. Assange has not been seen since that time, although there has been some audio interviews released. Some believe that it is possible that he may have been physically harmed!!!

Yep ... also you have to remember NC had the Trump protests so chaces are it will be a hotspot.

14. Donald Trump. Hes been to pedo island numerous times and has talked glowingly of epstein and of all the bodies Hillary has sent to hawaii.

duck dodgers's picture

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” ...Donald Trump

Epsteins black book had 14 different numbers for Trump. Epstein addmitted Trump dined at his private island several times.

Trump recruited girls for Epstein from his clubs.

Its probably all nothing though...no reason to suspect anything. Trump probably just thought he was going to bible studies...The bible is his favorite book afterall. He reads it all the time...He really likes two corinthians. Fucking hypocrite ZHers

duck dodgers makes a point.  Don't be deceived, not anyone.

Beaker99's picture

If there's one thing you can be sure of, it's that during the election cycle you saw ALL of Trumps laundry. 

I can't imagine there are any skeletons left in his closet. 

amenlight's picture

Yes, Trump initially said this about Epstein, but when he became aware of the kind of person Epstein was, Trump distanced from him. Trump is not in the flight logs.IN the other hand Bill Clinton travel to Epstein island over 24+ times and Hillary about 5-6 times. There is record!

MagicHandPuppet's picture

Exactly.  I live in NC and I know that voter fraud is out of control here.  I've known a woman since I was a kid who told stories of how she bussed poor people around from district to district to vote using fake names (probably real names of dead people).  She and the local Dems gave these fraudulent "voters" free meals and a little money.  It's been going on here for a long time.  The NC governor recount is very important.

my wife and i did not vote in 08 presidential election.  it was dark, raining, the line was out to the road.


in 12 we found out that we did vote by "absentee ballot". we are registered independent.


we reported this to the county election board in nc.  they didn't seem to have a care, it seems like they specifically target independent voters in nc using bogus absentee ballots.

Because George Soros cares about "the most vulnerable in our society"....

Fuck you, Soros. You duplicitous, conniving cocksucker.

And, really, how fucking hard and/or expensive is it to get a government issued ID..?!?! I hate the DMV as much as the next guy, but tough titties.

ID or no vote. Simple.
