Lt. Governor Forest's Statement on AG Stein's Punt of Voter ID

Raleigh, NC

 Lt. Governor Forest releases the following statement:

"It should be clear now to all North Carolinians that even though the people of this state voted overwhelmingly for photo voter ID, the Democratic Party -- under the leadership of Governor Cooper, the tactics of Attorney General Stein, and the rulings of their activist liberal allies on the bench -- has no intention of honoring the will of the people. The only reason to oppose photo voter ID is if you intend to commit fraud at the ballot box.

If Attorney General Stein truly cared about voter ID, he would immediately seek review by the Supreme Court. However, today's action shows his intention is to never see an ID at the ballot box as long as he and Governor Cooper are in control."
