INTOLERABLE COMPETITION: The North Carolina Democratic Party is hammering away at a conservative registration drive effort, but another group on the left has taken up the cause.

Democrats want to dispense with the democratic process by shutting down the rights of a conservative group with more than 2 million members.
In a Sept. 29 email to North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Randy Voller, Executive Director Casey Mann said, “We need your help to fight this legal battle to ensure groups like Americans for Prosperity are kept out of our democratic process.”
Mann is referring to an investigation into a mailer with incorrect information that AFP North Carolina sent out recently. AFP North Carolina state director said, “It was a mistake. We’re not going to make any bones about it…We made mistakes in the mailer.”
Honest mistakes are made all the time, and companies have to eat related losses, but AFP’s Communications Director Levi Russell told Watchdog Wire that the organization’s expensive campaign to sign up new voters has also been very successful. For example, one particular week of tracking results showed 3,800 newly registered voters.
Russell also said the left has typically held the voter registration advantage, so they don’t appreciate AFP moving into their territory.
