Washington, D.C. – The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) today launched ExtremeHarvardRadical.com, a website dedicated to revealing Josh Stein’s radical views on issues important to mainstream North Carolinians.
"ExtremeHarvardRadical.com is a one-stop shop for illuminating Josh Stein’s record,” said RAGA spokesman Jordan Russell. “It will highlight a new issue every week where Josh Stein is far outside the North Carolina mainstream, and voter ID is the perfect place to start. Despite voter ID enjoying support from 80% of Americans, including 77% of minorities, Harvard radical Josh Stein vehemently opposes ensuring the integrity of the election process. He even absurdly claimed photo ID is unnecessary because voter fraud is a ‘myth.’ Stein’s radicalism on voter ID and many other issues makes him too extreme to be North Carolina’s next attorney general.”
In 2013, The State Senate Passed And Gov. McCrory Signed Into Law House Bill 589, Which Required Voter Identification, Trimmed The Period For Early Voting And Ended Same-Day Voter Registration
In 2013, The State Senate Debated A Voter ID Law And Voting Reforms.“Senators debated sweeping restrictions on how North Carolinians can cast votes, though an amendment to the bill could alleviate some of the concerns about access and long lines at the polls. The debate Wednesday was contentious at times, with Democrats blasting the Republican-led effort as a move against black voters, youths, the elderly and first-time voters.” (Jon Ostendorff, “NC Senate Passes Voting Restrictions,” The Asheville-Times, 7/25/13)
House Bill 589 Passed The Senate On Its Third Reading 33-14 And Stein Voted Against It. (HB589, Roll Call #882, Passed 33-14, Stein Voted No, 7/25/13)
Stein Claimed In-Person Voter Fraud Is A Myth
Stein Claimed In-Person Voter Fraud Is A Myth, Citing Only Two Documented Cases Over Six Statewide Election Cycles. “Stein countered that in-person voter fraud is ‘a myth,’ and said there have only been two documented cases over the past six statewide election cycles.” (Ely Portillo, “GOP Legislators Push Sweeping Election-Law Changes,” The Charlotte Observer, 7/24/13)
