NC NAACP President / Rev. William Barber

NC NAACP President / Rev. William Barber, NC’s version of Al Sharpton.

My latest at IJ Review discusses how the national NAACP has stepped in to investigate the Winston-Salem, NC branch after allegations and complaints surfaced of vote tampering, paper ballots (supposedly against the rules), and campaign literature being illegally distributed at a January election of executive board members.  

Because there had been so much dissension last fall among the Winston group over the nominating process, the state NAACP – of which Moral Monday “leader” and vocal voter ID opponent Rev. William “Bill” Barber heads – was called in to “oversee” that January election … and failed.  As a result, the situation has escalated to the national office.

In short, a city-based NC NAACP election for president was voided by the national NAACP after complaints alleging improper vote tampering and illegal campaigning at the January 10 election – which was overseen by the state NAACP, which happens to be a vocal opponent of the type of voting laws that aim to prevent future instances of vote fraud in government elections.

Can’t make it up …

    Is Barber actually an ordained minister or priest, or does he at least have some sort of Divinity degree? Just from looking at him, he screams “fake.”

  2. Carlos says:

    He’s undoubtedly angry the national stepped in to gum up his fraud scheme to “prevent” fraud…

  3. ST says:

    Not sure. Good question, Phineas.

    It’s actually quite sad to watch the destruction of a once great entity!

  5. Ed says:

    Believe it or not, “Reverend” Barber graduated from the Duke Divinity School. I lost all respect for Duke when I first heard that!

    So, what’s your point? Is there supposed to be some sort of connection or something? Hey these guys had problems, those guys want to sort it out. See when whites complain of the need for voter monitoring and accountability they are racists trying to hold the man down. When blacks do it, it isn’t anything because, don’t you know, blacks can’t be racists, man. Haters got to hate. (a tautology).
