NC state senator’s campaign fliers violated law, board says – News & Observer

The Watch Dog reported the following, Breaking News – A complaint and request for investigation was lodged against NC Democrat Senator Angela Bryant for wrongful non-compliance of SBOE regulation violations on yesterday. I will respond to this later today.

The State Board of Elections took action against state Sen. Angela Bryant, D-Nash, over fliers distributed by her campaign during the early voting period before Tuesday’s primaries, a board official said Thursday.

After an inquiry, the board identified legal issues with the fliers and required Bryant to sign a “Statement of Understanding” March 8, acknowledging that she understood the relevant laws about election materials.

The board also required Bryant to take out an ad in The Wilson Times. The ad, headlined “Paid for by the Committee to Elect Angela Bryant,” said fliers were distributed by the committee “in error” and said the issue had been corrected.

The fliers included the words “Keep Senator Angela Bryant” and information about her. They also showed an image of a ballot with ovals colored in for certain candidates, including Bryant. (Source: Read more)
