Occasional Capital Research Center contributor James Simpson reports that the Obama campaign “conspired” to register online at least 11,000 people to vote in swing state North Carolina, apparently in violation of state law.
From Simpson’s article:
North Carolina’s Civitas Institute has revealed that the North Carolina State Board of Elections and the Obama campaign conspired to register at least 11,000 people via the internet in violation of state law. This has been confirmed through records requests filed with all of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The counting is not yet complete. North Carolina does not allow online voting, but according to Civitas, SBE staff authorized an Obama campaign website, Gottaregister.com, to use a web-based registration program.
While this is disturbing if true, it is not unexpected.
