Speaker Moore Responds to Federal Court Upholding Absentee Witness Requirement Against Secret Partisan Settlement

Raleigh, N.C. – State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released a statement Wednesday responding to a federal court upholding North Carolina’s absentee ballot witness requirement against the collusive settlement struck by Attorney General Josh Stein with the former campaign attorney for Hillary Clinton and Gov. Cooper.

Speaker Moore is the lead plaintiff in the case, Moore v. Circosta.
Judge William Osteen of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina released a strongly worded opinion today blocking the effort to eliminate a bipartisan witness requirement for absentee ballots.
“North Carolinians can have confidence a bipartisan witness requirement for absentee ballots has been upheld by federal courts, in a win for the democratic process against unacceptable partisan collusion conducted by the Democratic Attorney General and Hillary Clinton’s partisan lawyer,” Speaker Moore said.
