Sadly, there has been a rash of illegal activity this election cycle, just as there has been in previous primary and general elections. Reports abound about absentee ballots being purchased, a serious violation of state election law, and about campaign signs being vandalized and stolen from all across Sanford and Lee County. I find this behavior completely unworthy and unacceptable in our fair county. So, I am offering substantial rewards to any citizen of Lee County who offers material evidence that leads to the prosecution and conviction of perpetrators of this illegal activity.
There are two rewards:
- $250.00 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person in Lee County who purchases an absentee ballot from any registered voter, a violation of election laws in North Carolina.
- $100.00 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons who illegally remove one or more campaign signs from their posted locations within Lee County.
Any citizen can provide material evidence. If requested, anonymity will be protected. All the citizen has to do is to contact this founding father by email to make initial contact and to provide a description of the evidence he or she might have. Further instruction will be provided after that contact about how and where to turn the evidence over and how to collect the reward. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
So, let’s all keep our eyes and ears open for illegal election or voting activity, and let yours truly, John Hancock, know if you have any evidence we can use to clean up the mess. Thanks in advance for your help!
