Stop the Unconstitutional Federal Takeover of Elections

Stop the Unconstitutional Federal Takeover of Elections

H.R. 1, a bill sponsored by Representative John Sarbanes (D-Md.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has already passed in the House of Representatives by 234-193 on March 8 and has been read in the Senate. The title of the bill is “For the People Act of 2019,” but a more accurate name for the bill might be “The Federal Takeover of Elections Act of 2019.” This bill includes components that, while being portrayed as making voting easier on Americans, are not only going to lead to corruption but to an unconstitutional takeover of elections by the federal government.

To learn more about why H.R. 1 would be so dangerous to our constitutionally mandated state control of elections, read “HR 1: Blueprint for an Electoral Takeover” (posted at TheNewAmerican.com on April 22).

Please phone your Senators (202-224-3121) and ask them to vote NO on H.R. 1, because it would enable an unconstitutional federal takeover of congressional elections. Use the information in “HR 1: Blueprint for an Electoral Takeover” (linked to in the previous paragraph) for additional talking points, if desired.

Then, please send an email to your senators with the same message.

Thanks.

Hayes Delegates Day-To-Day Operations Of NCGOP To Party Officers Per Rules

Raleigh, NC — Chairman Hayes today announced he has relinquished most of his day-to-day duties of managing the NCGOP to other constitutional officers.

“In the best interest of the party, I make this announcement today and will let our respected officers lead on a temporary basis until our regularly planned party elections this June,” said Hayes.

“After a long and distinguished career in public service at the local, state, and federal levels, Robin volunteered his time helping to support the Party and candidates for office in North Carolina. We look forward to a swift conclusion to this matter and clearing his name,” said Hayes’ attorney Kearns Davis. “Meanwhile Mr. Hayes, in accordance with NCGOP Rules, will allow others to lead while he heals from recent health setbacks.”

Under Article VI.B.4.a of the NCGOP State Plan of Organization, the Party’s governing bylaws, “the State Chairman may delegate authority to District Chairs to act on his behalf on any matter.” Chairman Hayes has appointed 11th District Chair Aubrey Woodard to assume the role of Acting Chair of the North Carolina Republican Party.

“The North Carolina Republican Party is governed by a strong set of rules and governing structure. While I empathize with Mr. Hayes and believe in him, this is the best move for the NCGOP during this brief time of transition,” said Mr. Woodard. “I look forward helping the NCGOP as we head into the State Convention.”

Hayes also announced that Finance Chair K.D. Kennedy and NCGOP Treasurer Jason Lemons would assume expanded roles in the day to day operation of the Party’s finances.

“The Republican party is not about one person,” stated Kennedy. “It is a shared set of principals and ideals. I have invested in those principals in the past and will continue to do so in the future. I am more than willing to fill in during this short time reassuring our investors that the NCGOP is fully operational and well positioned to fulfill its mission.”

National Committeewoman Dr. Ada Fisher offered support for Mr. Hayes’ decision and him personally. “Robin Hayes has to my knowledge always reflected the best interest of my state, the Republican Party, and other good works without a hint of impropriety. This country and my Party have been founded on the principle of the rule of law with our firm belief that people are innocent until proven guilty. I support Mr. Hayes in this move.”

Time for the N.C. Senate to Step Up on Eminent Domain

John Locke Foundation – The Castle Coalition is a national membership organization made up of homeowners and small business owners that want to protect their property from eminent domain abuse. To help its members understand their rights under existing state laws, the organization publishes a 50 State Report Card. The report card describes the protections provided under each state’s eminent domain law and assigns a grade based on “how hard [it is] for the government to take a person’s home or business and give it to someone else for private gain.”

North Carolina earned a C-, which isn’t a satisfactory grade. Only 18 states do worse.

As explained in the John Locke Foundation’s Freedom in North Carolina report, North Carolina’s failure to adequately protect private property from eminent domain abuse is one of the primary reasons why we languish in the bottom half of states, both nationally and regionally in the “regulatory freedom” category.
