NORTH CAROLINA: Dems Demand That Pat McCrory Concede As Roy Cooper Names Transition Team

The Charlotte Observer reports:

In a coordinated public appeal, Rep. Tricia Cotham Monday joined Democratic lawmakers across the state in calling on Gov. Pat McCrory to concede the gubernatorial election. “I understand it’s hard to lose,” she said outside the Mecklenburg County board of elections. “McCrory needs to be a statesman and do what the voters wanted and concede this race.”

The governor currently trails Democratic Attorney general Roy Cooper by 6,600 votes out of 4.7 million cast, according to the state elections board. On Election Day he trailed by around 5,000.

Meanwhile, Cooper named a transition team Monday. The governor has contested votes in over half of North Carolina’s 100 counties. The protests were one reason county boards delayed their official canvasses, which had been scheduled for last Friday.

In a setback for McCrory, the state elections board Sunday denied a request by the governor’s team for the board to take jurisdiction over the county ballot reviews. The one exception was in Bladen County, where McCrory is protesting several hundred absentee ballots.

In a video released Sunday, Cooper said, “Gov. McCrory is doing everything he can to undermine the results of this election and the will of the people. But we won’t let him.”

    Yeah, what a consept! McCrory doesn’t believe in such things, though.

  • moebym

    If Hillary Clinton can graciously concede despite winning the popular vote by a huge margin in an election that involved interference from our country’s own top law enforcement agency and a FOREIGN POWER, YOU can too concede an election in which you undisputedly LOST despite voter suppression designed to help YOU and other Republicans win the state.

    I’m hoping McCrory gets so upset he has a personal Scanners moment. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b3634ea07401b69e3b366bf4fce93067d18abf59668b57442229e211692f7b0.jpg

  • Yixing’s Fluffer

    Republicans are sore losers. If the outcome of the presidential race had flipped, and Clinton had won the EC while trailing by 1.75 million votes, there would be 5000 lawsuits.

    • and investigations.

    • Jamie_Johnson

      Republicans are also sore winners, hence the “We won, you lost” chants from Confederate-flag-waving deplorables, not to mention the outbursts at various stagings of Hamilton.

    • The_Wretched

      Even so, I don’t like how the Dems appear to roll over without the least contest.

    • MonochromeMouse

      They’re sore “winners” too, look how pissed they are that people are protesting the fact that Trump lost the popular vote by more than a million votes.

  • Villager

    So glad this bigot is going. what an embarrassment to this state.

    Bet on it.

  • Mark

    Get off the stump, asshole. It’s over.

  • SoCalGal20

    So there appears to be a method to McCrory’s madness. He’s laying the groundwork to have the election “contested”, at which point the supermajority Republican state legislature can then declare him the “winner”. There is actually a state law in NC that would allow that.

    • boatboy_srq

      Isn’t this simply leveraging the Brooks Brothers Riot model? Make enough noise, and the vote count no longer matters because your friends will step in and save your bacon.

      It’s beginning to look like the Dems will need super majorities in Congress and every state house to get past this obstructionism.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Being a slimy shit is the MO of the GOP now and I feel sorry for NC if this happens.

    • JCF

      Um, laws that declare themselves “not reviewable” are not Constitutional. And if the NC Constitution doesn’t recognize that, then IT is unconstitutional per the U.S. Constitution.

      …of course, depending on the Drumpf SCOTUS… {face-palm}

      This is how democracy dies.

    • Chris Baker

      It’s pretty amazing fraud, where Trump won NC by 177,000 votes, and McCrory lost by 6,000. Considering the fact that a number of people ONLY voted in the Presidential race (“I only want to vote for President, can I do that?” I was asked at the polls–by both R and D voters).

  • rednekokie

    Cooper is a gentleman. His opponent is a jerk.
    Thanks that the gentleman won this time. The jerk won’t be easy to get rid of.
    But keep trying, North Carolina — a beautiful state — now you have the upper hand against jerks.

    Here is how I am hoping Governor McCrory’s exit scene from office looks like.

    He can refuse to concede until he’s blue in the face (which is a nice thought BTW). He can demand recounts until he’s blue in the face. But the elections boards in the various counties report the tallies and that’s what decides the election, not some fat-cat asshole having a hissy-fit. Sorry, Pat, you’re fired!

    McCrory is a textbook example of an entitled crybaby who needs to grow a pair and never will. Inside, he’s much like the rest of the Nutjob Coven whose perverse attitudes are being showcased daily. It’s gonna be a bumpy night (week, month, year), but I have faith that the whole shitshow will fall apart soon enough. And handling tantrums like Pat’s will have been good practice for the bigger purges coming.

    LITIGATIONALLY VS PETITIONALLY REMOVING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
    .
    .
    In even a cursory examination of this outrageous nigh past– though, tentative!– U.S. Election, at the root of the abysmal failure of the U.S. “Electoral System” to achieve a D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C Plurality, is its failure to facilitate the E-S-S-E-N-T-I-A-L D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C R-E-Q-U-I-R-E-M-E-N-T of a “D-I-R-E-C-T E-L-E-C-T-I-O-N”, through a “O-N-E V-O-T-E-R, O-N-E V-O-T-E” Elections System! And due– PRIMARILY!– to the institution of a Republican preferred U-N-D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C “Electoral College”!… with “Electors”, and INDIRECT “Electoral Votes”!
    .
    Consequently!… given the astounding and P-E-R-V-E-R-S-E Trump “win”, numerous Petitions have now emerged online– at least!– to challenge, and to eliminate, the Electoral College! To many Americans– and I suggest, to MOST Americans!– Trump becoming the “President-elect”… and despite losing the “popular vote”!… was– and still is!– A S-H-O-C-K T-O T-H-E C-O-R-E O-F D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y”, A-N-D, T-O R-A-T-I-O-N-A-L P-O-L-I-T-I-C-A-L D-I-S-C-O-U-R-S-E! And the situation is reminiscent of the controversial 2000 Presidential race between George W. Bush and Al Gore!… in which Gore won the “popular vote”, but, Bush was elected President!
    .
    Under the U.S Constitution, until the designated Electors of the Electoral College assemble in their state capitals to place in their votes (and in this present process, on December 19th!)… followed, by a meeting of Congress to affirm the result (and in this present process, on January 6th)!… things are still not fully settled! In most of the country, it’s a “winner-takes-all” system: whoever wins a state’s “popular vote” is awarded all the Electoral votes for that state! The catch is, that these votes are based on a state’s number of Senators and House Representatives!… so, they vary from state to state! It’s more important to win states with a high proportion of Electoral Votes– like Trump taking Wisconsin, and Florida!– than to receive the most votes overall! November 8th’s U.S. vote, was– technically!– not to make Trump the next President, but, to determine who the 538 Electors in the various states across the country will be! It is those Electors who will bear the responsibility of casting the votes that will “legally elect” the next U.S. President (i.e…. and presently!… on December 19th!)! And it is for this reason, why millions of Hillary Clinton supporters… and supporters of “democracy”!… are anxious to lobby Electors, in an effort to trump Trump!
    .
    And so… this “mysterious victory” has reawakened… of course!… interest in, and has revived tactical approaches to, the elimination of the much criticized Electoral College! And, VEHEMENT criticisms!… and which are not only rife today, but, which have flurished for decades!
    .
    And, for example, David Boise… a lawyer who represented Gore, in Bush v. Gore, in 2000!… told the New York Times, that he considers the Electoral College a “historical anomaly”! A view, that has been echoed by millions online– at least!– since 2000!… and, by millions more, since November the 8th!
    .
    However!… the SOLUTION to the evils inhere within this nearly completed U.S. Election, is not to place emphasis on merely changing the minds, and votes, of Electors!… as is currently the case with the Lady gaga supported Change.org Petition (among other “Elector Lobby” Petitions!)… but, on challenging Constitutionally (and through Tort!… AND, NOW!), the inherent violation of the “Principles of Democracy (i.e., those respective of one’s Democratic Right to a ‘DIRECT ELECTION’, and, to ‘One Voter, One Vote’!)” through the present UNCONSTITUTIONAL, AND TORTIOUS DEFERENCE to the Electoral College in the first place!… and, to the “Colleg(e)al Conventions” that will finally determine who becomes President!
    .
    Challenging the Electoral College based on a “C-O-N-S-T-I-T-U-T-I-O-N-A-L I-M-P-E-R-A-T-I-V-E” to peg the Electoral College to the “Principles of Democracy”, is as an important consideration for those desiring an end to the Electoral College, as it is for those desiring the beginning of D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C PLURALITIES! If the T-R-U-E “Principles of Democracy” are said (IN A SOUND COURT OF LAW!) to necessitate the B-I-N-D-I-N-G A-D-H-E-R-E-N-C-E of governments to the “popular decisions” of an electorate (R-E A-N-Y E-L-E-M-E-N-T T-H-A-T W-O-U-L-D P-O-R-T-E-N-D A-N E-L-E-C-T-O-R-A-T-E-‘-S G-O-V-E-R-N-A-N-C-E!… and e.g., the Electoral College!)”, then, a Constitutional Challenge (and Tort challenge!) against an ENTRENCHED MARGINALIZATION of an electorate’s “popular vote” through a “S-L-I-G-H-T O-F H-A-N-D” and “E-N-D R-U-N” around the “Principles of Democracy (e.g., through the Electoral College!)”, would go a long way toward “EXPOSING” what these Electoral mechanisms have been– and are!– all about! And!… MOST IMPORTANTLY!… such a challenge would reveal the veracity (or lack, thereof!) of the claims in support of the Electoral College!
    .
    The bottom line, is:… ANY ATTEMPT TO UNDERMINE THE B-I-N-D-I-N-G OF THE “POPULAR EXPRESSION” TO A “POPULAR ELECTION” BY WAY OF SOME “POLITICAL CIRCUMLOCUTORY OBFUSCATION (E.G., THE CLAIMS IN SUPPORT OF AN ELECTORAL COLLEGE!)”, SHOULD BE MADE SUBJECT TO “JUDICIOUS” CONSTITUTIONAL (AND TORT!) ADJUDICATION! AND SUCH “COLLEG(E)AL CIRCUMLOCUTORY OBFUSCATION”, SHOULD NOT BE MADE SYNONYMOUS WITH A “REASONED DEFINITION” OF, AND “REASONED APPROACH” TO, WHAT CONSTITUTES THE T-R-U-E “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”!
    .
    In the face of the EVIDENCE that the U.S. Electoral System is a breach of the “Principles of Democracy”!… and, that the process Americans have been about (i.e., involving the Electoral College– at least!) has been a SHAM!… a competent court of jurisdiction could just as easily turn around, and say:… “You know… you guys (Senators and Congresspersons!) have been made WELL AWARE of the CLEAR CONSTITUTIONAL BREACHES inhere within the Electoral College! And so!… YOU ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE!… A-N-D Y-O-U A-R-E N-O-W O-B-L-I-G-E-D T-O A-M-E-N-D T-H-E P-R-O-C-E-S-S, F-O-R-T-H-W-I-T-H (and the stated Conventions of the Amending Formula, N-O-T-W-I-T-H-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!… and, the present Conventions of the Electoral College’s Electoral, N-O-T-W-I-T-H-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!)!!… AND TO INSTITUTE WHAT HAS BEEN CALLED FOR BY COUNTLESS JUDICIAL ADVOCATES AND ADVOCACIES, AND, BY SOUND JURIPRUDENCE!!”
    .
    Of course, the legal machinations to be pursued, depend on what’s being argued before the court, and on how well this is presented!… and– ultimately!– before the US Supreme Court! But!… and for God’s sake– if for no one else’s sake!… Senators and Congresspersons (and America’s top legal minds!– at least!) have been made FULLY AWARE of the “Principles of Democracy”!… and have been made FULLY AWARE of the need to UPHOLD THE “DEMOCRATIC WILL” of the Electorate! And so… it’s not as if these learned political souls would be “blindsided” by a Court’s decision, that these act… AND ACT NOW!… to remedy a centuries-old injustice! Adherence to a Constitutional Amending Formula is of less importance… as is adhering to the present legislated Electoral College’s Electoral Conventions!… than adherence to the CORNERSTONE OF DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS!… THE CORNERSTONE OF DEMOCRACY! All a judge need say, is:… “Cut the cr*p!… and get on with it!”
    .
    And thus!… concerned Americans– I believe!– must refocus their efforts… FULL EFFORTS!– AND FOREMOST!… ON SEEKING (N-O-W!) TO CONSTITUTIONALLY (AND THROUGH TORT!) TO UPHOLD THE “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”! And although Americans are free… of course!… to join in on the lesser “Electoral Lobby” Petitions, the “B-E-T-T-E-R R-E-T-U-R-N”, will be from the suggested LEGAL ACTIONS (and through– e.g.– “Crowd Funding”!), and the “Abolitionist Petitions (such as those of MoveOn.org!… and, the like!)”! And!… inasmuch!… as the present ILLEGAL DENIAL of “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, and of “One Voter, One Vote (by way of the very existence of the Electoral College!)”, I-S T-H-E C-E-N-T-R-A-L P-R-O-B-L-E-M!
    .
    To sum up… the “Equal Protection Clause” is part of the FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT to the United States Constitution! The clause… which took effect in 1868!… provides, that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction, “the equal protection of the laws (and, I’ll add here, Equal Constitutional Protection re the application of the Constitution with respect to the state application of Electoral College Voting, and a state’s elections law that applies to a given Federal Election!)”!
    .
    A primary motivation for this clause was to validate the “equality provisions” contained in the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which guaranteed that A-L-L P-E-O-P-L-E (and, I’ll add here, ALL AMERICAN VOTERS!… AND REGARDLESS OF THE STATE IN WHICH A VOTER RESIDES!) would have Rights equal to those of A-L-L C-I-T-I-Z-E-N-S (e.g., whatever is afforded in one state pertaining to Electoral College voting, and a state’s elections law that applies to a given Federal Election, SHOULD BE AFFORDED TO A-L-L A-M-E-R-I-C-A-N-S!)! As a whole, the FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT marked a large shift in “American Constitutionalism”, BY APPLYING– SUBSTANTIALLY!– MORE CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRICTIONS AGAINST THE STATES THAN HAD APPLIED BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR!
    .
    The meaning of the Equal Protection Clause has been the subject of much debate!… and inspired the well-known phrase, “Equal Justice Under Law”! This clause was the basis for Brown v. Board of Education (1954)… the Supreme Court decision that helped to dismantle racial segregation! And!… which also formed the basis for many other Human Rights decisions which/ that REJECTED DISCRIMINATION AGAINST PEOPLE BELONGING TO VARIOUS GROUPS (and I’ll add here, a “hoped-for” future decision:… a state’s discrimination in its application of Electoral College voting, and in its creation and application of its elections law that applies to any given Federal Election, when compared to the creation and the application of such, state-to-state!… AND, DISCRIMINATION WITH RESPECT TO “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!)!
    .
    And despite the said “fact” that the Equal Protection Clause itself applies only to state and local governments, the Supreme Court held in Bolling v. Sharpe (1954) that equal protection requirements within the FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT apply to the Federal Government through the “DUE PROCESS CLAUSE” of the FIFTH AMENDMENT! IN OTHER WORDS, EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT REQUIREMENTS MUST APPLY STATE-TO-STATE, RE ANY ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, THE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF ANY STATE ELECTION LAW THAT WOULD APPLY TO A GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION, AND, TO “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!
    .
    Well, folks!… and to cut to the chase!… even in adopting the Conventions of the Electoral College (leaving aside– for the moment!– the issue of “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, and “One Voter, One Vote”!), STATE-RUN ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, AND STATE-RUN ELECTION LAWS GOVERNING ANY GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION BY WAY OF THE POWERS GRANTED STATES THROUGH ARTICLE II, SECTION 1 OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION (WHICH GIVES THE STATES EXCLUSIVE CONTROL OVER AWARDING THEIR RESPECTIVE ELECTORAL VOTES!), ARE PRESENTLY IN BREACH OF THE FEDERAL “DUE PROCESS CLAUSE” OF THE FIFTH AMENDMENT OF THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION (AND THEREBY, FEDERAL “EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT”, STATE-TO-STATE!), IN THAT, THE INDIVIDUAL STATES (BY MERE VIRTUE OF THEIR INDIVIDUAL APPROACH TO ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF STATE ELECTION LAWS THAT WOULD APPLY TO ANY GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION!) S-Y-S-T-E-M-I-C-A-L-L-Y D-E-N-Y C-O-L-L-E-C-T-I-V-E/ U-N-I-L-A-T-E-R-A-L F-E-D-E-R-A-L D-U-E P-R-O-C-E-S-S A-N-D E-Q-U-A-L P-R-O-T-E-C-T-I-O-N A-N-D B-E-N-E-F-I-T T-O A-L-L A-M-E-R-I-C-A-N C-I-T-I-Z-E-N-S, WHEN THE RESPECTIVE STATES’ ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING AND ELECTIONS LAWS ARE COMPARED SIDE-BY-SIDE/ STATE-TO-STATE! BUT, MOREOVER, THIS STATE-TO-STATE BREACH OF FEDERAL “DUE PROCESS”… AND THUS, FEDERAL “EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT”!… WITH RESPECT TO THE STATE-TO-STATE APPARATUS FOR ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, AND THE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF STATE-TO-STATE ELECTIONS LAWS, DOESN’T EVEN TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE MORE SERIOUS BREACH OF FEDERAL “DUE PROCESS (AND THUS, FEDERAL ‘EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT’!)”, IN THE DISCRIMINATORY STATE-TO-STATE FAILURE TO FACILITATE “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!
    .
    THEREFORE!… THE O-N-L-Y S-O-L-U-T-I-O-N THAT WILL END THIS STATE-TO-STATE DISCRIMINATION IN THE APPLICATION OF ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, THE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF RESPECTIVE STATE ELECTION LAWS TO ANY GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION, AND THE IMPLEMENTATION OF “DIRECT ELECTIONS” AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”, IS THE ABANDONMENT OF BOTH ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING AND STATE ELECTIONS LAWS, IN FAVOR OF THE CREATION OF ONE FEDERAL “DIRECT ELECTIONS, ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE” LAW!… AND, ELECTIONS PROCESS! BUT!… IN LIEU OF, AND IN ADVANCE OF THE LEGISLATIVE DRAFTING OF ANY SUCH LAW, ADVOCATES AND ADVOCACIES WHO/ WHICH CONTEST THE INEQUALITY OF ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, STATE ELECTIONS LAWS, AND, THE ABSENCE OF “DIRECT ELECTIONS” AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”, WOULD DO WELL TO E-X-P-E-D-I-T-E T-H-E L-E-G-I-S-L-A-T-I-V-E P-R-O-C-E-S-S THROUGH THE I-M-M-E-D-I-A-T-E I-N-V-O-C-A-T-I-O-N OF THE NECESSARY CONSTITUTIONAL AND TORT MEASURES, T-H-A-T W-O-U-L-D S-E-E T-H-E “J-U-D-I-C-I-O-U-S E-F-F-E-C-T-A-T-I-O-N” O-F S-U-C-H A L-A-W, B-Y W-A-Y O-F A C-O-U-R-T-‘-S R-U-L-I-N-G, T-H-A-T S-U-C-H A L-A-W, I-S “P-A-S-T D-U-E”!!
