Patsy Keever, the 1st Vice Chair of the North Carolina Democratic Party, has until Feb 2, 2015 to respond to the NC Board of Elections over the intimidation letters sent to over 1.5 million NC Democratic voters throughout the State during the last election—according to sources with the NC Board of Elections.
In Muzzarelli v. North Carolina Democratic Party, the complainants state they received the letter. They filed a complaint asking the BOE to address the legal and ethical standards of sending the mailers.
Keever is running for NC Dem State Chair and lately has been criticized in the media for calling Janice Covington, a transgendered female, ‘a man’ in a recent debate. Covington is one of five candidates seeking the position of Chair.
According to NCBOE sources, the mailers may fall under NCGS 163.25-17.
