From WECT (Wilmington, NC):
Thanks to Ring doorbell camera footage the Sloans shared with WECT, we’re able to see parts of what happened. On Feb. 12, two women are seen approaching the Sloans’ home. They ring the doorbell and Eliza Sloan answered it.
“My name is Michelle and this is Carolynn, we’re just volunteers and we’re working on voter registration records. Are you Eliza?” one of the two women asks. “We just wanted to verify you’re a voter for this home. How long have you lived here?”
Unsure of the cause for the visit, Eliza answered the women’s questions while at the door.
“She was very inquisitive about how we voted,” Eliza Sloan said.
Then, she says the conversation turned to her husband. The woman insisted on seeing John and asked to come inside to do so. Eliza Sloan obliged.
When they were inside, they once again asked to see John and when he made his way to the front of the home, they asked him questions like what his age was and if he voted by absentee ballot. After confirming he was who he said he was, the women quickly left the house and drove away.
In reaction to this news from WECT, the North Carolina State Board of Elections put out a statement reaffirming that election officials do not go door-to-door conducting any official elections business.
The local Brunswick County Democratic Party (who are very much on their game) has identified Allison Dunlap, President of the North Brunswick Republican Club, as the leader of a local chapter of the “NC Audit Force,” which is behind this targeted voter harassment incident. NC Audit Force is associated with Mike Lindell (the MyPillow guy) and his loony election-audit project, America’s Audit Force.
Curiously, the North Carolina Republican Party has made no statement about one of its officers leading a targeted campaign of racial voter suppression.
