Them there illegals is what done him in, not HB2! The HuffPost reports:
If anybody can hold a grudge, it’s former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R). During a speech at the state Republican Party’s annual convention on Saturday, McCrory took the opportunity to once again claim that he lost his re-election bid in November because of voter fraud.
“I know for a fact that we had a lot of non-citizens that were voting,” McCrory said, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “Ladies and gentlemen, voter ID would have stopped it. Keep it a clean bill, stay with a voter ID law and get that passed.”
Of the 508 ineligible voters who cast ballots in North Carolina during the 2016 election, only 41 were non-citizens with legal status, according to an investigation by the state Board of Elections. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, defeated McCrory in the election by 10,277 votes.
