RALEIGH – Governor-elect Roy Cooper filed a lawsuit on Friday challenging the General Assembly’s special session law that revamps the state elections board.
The Democratic governor has asked the courts to hold an emergency hearing Friday afternoon to block the law from taking effect while the lawsuit pends.
The law was set to take effect on Sunday, when the North Carolina State Board of Elections would officially have ceased to exist.
The law would merge the elections board with the State Ethics Commission, which administers ethics laws governing lobbyists, elected officials and government employees. The merger was approved by the Republican-led legislature during its special session earlier this month and signed by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory, one of several changes attempting to limit the power Cooper. (News & Observer)
