WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump suggested that people in North Carolina should vote twice in the November election, once by mail and once in person, escalating his attempts to cast confusion and doubt on the validity of the results.
Um, that illegal.
“If it’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they’ll be able to vote. So that’s the way it is. And that’s what they should do,” he said.
It is illegal to vote more than once in an election.
If any of them do as Lord Damp Nut suggests, isn’t that then a conspiracy to commit voter fraud? Asking for a friend.
Who knew? It turns out that urging North Carolina to vote twice — once by absentee ballot and once in person — is actually a Class I felony in the state.
“For any person with intent to commit a fraud to register or vote at more than one precinct or more than one time, or to induce another to do so, in the same primary or election, or to vote illegally at any primary or election.”
Lock! Him! Up!
