I’ve been reporting on Mark Meadows and his wife who are alleged to have knowingly registered to vote using a fake mobile home address in North Carolina. In the latest, on April 11, 2022, after confirming Mark Meadows was also registered to vote in Virginia, where he voted in 2021, Macon County NC Board of Elections removed him from the active voter list. The former North Carolina Congressman has been under investigation for election fraud in North Carolina after voting there by absentee ballot during the 2020 election, where Trump won by 1 percentage point.
Meadows’ wife Debra is not named in the investigation, and she still has an active voter registration at the mobile home. Fraudulently or falsely completing the voter registration form is a Class I Felony. Meadows was a vocal proponent of the Big Lie, refusing to comply with a subpoena to testify to the January 6th Select Committee, which referred him to the DOJ for criminal contempt of Congress charges in December 2021. Wouldn’t it be poetic if Mark Meadows were convicted of felony voter fraud and barred from voting?
Speaking of voter fraud convictions, Pamela Moses, a Tennessee woman of color, was sentenced to six years in prison in February 2022 for knowingly making a false entry on per permanent registration. The judge who sentenced her subsequently overturned the conviction, granted her a new trial, and she was released from prison. Her attorneys are working to have the charges dismissed.
No matter where Meadows is registered to vote, we must all vote in droves. In the November 2022 midterms, 34 Senate seats and all 435 House seats are up for election. As Bill Palmer pointed out, “In 2020 we all focused too much on senate races in Kentucky, South Carolina, and Texas, that were all long shots. If we’d focused on the very competitive race in North Carolina instead, we’d have 51 democratic senators right now, not 50.”
