The politicization of common-sense voter ID requirements by the anti-election integrity crowd continues with Roy Cooper, North Carolina’s Democrat Attorney General and challenger to Republican Governor Pat McCrory, refusing to do his job and defend the state’s duly-enacted laws:
McCrory told reporters Tuesday morning “we will continue to appeal this,” saying attorneys are figuring out a way forward.
He called the 4th Circuit opinion “very political” referencing that the panel of judges was made up from two President Obama appointees and one appointed by President Clinton.
McCrory called on Roy Cooper to forgo his salary and “reimburse taxpayers for the cost of hiring outside counsel to do his job for him.”
“Roy Cooper is against common sense voter ID and is now refusing to do his job to defend our laws, so he should refuse his taxpayer-funded salary,” said Governor McCrory. “If any North Carolina citizen decided not to do their job, they would no longer have a paycheck. Roy Cooper should not be held to a different standard.”
