BREAKING: NCSBE releases the 2016 Bladen investigative report referred to prosecutors. Investigation found McCrae Dowless was paying workers to solicit absentee request forms & collect absentee ballots.

Workers were required to deliver ballots to him and push certain candidates
Just a few weeks ago, two people I interviewed told me McCrae Dowless paid them to pick up absentee ballots, drop them off to Dowless and promote Mark Harris and Sheriff Jim McVicker #NC09 @wsoctv
Anchor @AllisonWSOC9 is going through the 189 page investigative report. Watch @wsoctv at 5 and 6 for updates
In the 2016 #NC09 primary, McCrae Dowless worked for Todd Johnson.

Absentee by mail votes in Bladen County:

Todd Johnson- 221
Mark Harris- 4
Robert Pittenger- 1

#Ncpol @wsoctv
Another big development: 2016 investigative report says McCrae Dowless attempted to obstruct the NCSBE investigation by warning people of interest that investigators were looking for them. The report says Dowless coached them on what to say if contacted #NC09 @wsoctv
The two people accused of collecting ballots in 2016 told investigators Dowless would pay 1/2 of what they earned when they brought absentee request forms to him and the other half when they brought the ballots back #NC09
It is a 278 page document, (not 189 as I said in an earlier tweet). Read the whole thing here:…
Reminder: The Wake Co DA told @AllisonWSOC9 there is an open criminal investigation related to absentee ballots in the 2018 election, 2018 primary and 2016 election
A phone shared by two accused of picking up ballots in 2016 listed Dowless as "McCrae Boss Man"

One of the two texted McCrae on 11/18/16 saying about investigators, "They want to meet with me in the morning... I'm scared and I don't remember half of what we are supposed to say"
In 2016, one of the two helped a guy from Ohio get an absentee ballot by asking for his SSN and DOB. On 10/1 one of the two texted the Ohio man and asked, "Yo, do u care who u vote for? I got ur ballot in the mail."
