FBI agent to investigate fraud for NC elections board

Posted May 27

Chuck Stuber

— A veteran FBI agent will join the State Board of Elections next month to assist in voter fraud and campaign finance investigations, officials said Tuesday.

Chuck Stuber has worked for the FBI for 28 years, serving in Washington, D.C., Denver and Raleigh. He was involved in investigations of former Gov. Mike Easley and former House Speaker Jim Black, both of which ended in convictions.

The elections board said last month that it would investigate cases of possible voter fraud identified by an interstate cross-check comparing election records from 28 states.

"I am honored to join the State Board of Elections during this important time,” Stuber said in a statement. “I have deep respect for those within the agency and look forward to working with them to enforce our state’s election laws."

The Raleigh native is both a lawyer and a certified public accountant, with degrees from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina School of Law.

    NC budget is already in the hole for millions and the GOP waste more money on a non problem.

    It is only a non-problem to leftists who can not win elections honestly.

    If fraud took place, I look forward to seeing these people prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Mr. Stuber is being hired to do any/all elections related investigations. Interesting how posters here cannot get past their one issue agenda.

    Hmmmm, voter fraud and campaign finance violations - I wonder which one he will find more evidence to pursue.

    I say investigate. Lets get to the bottom of this for once and for all. IF they can prove sizeable voter fraud that would turn an election then I will be the next to call for voter ID. If like the last time they investigated and found like 23 cases out of millions and half of those turned out to be weird circumstances like somebody dying after casting an early ballot, then I want the right to rescind the voter ID law. They should have nop problem with this deal as we all know having the government meddle in our affairs more is BAD. wink wink

    I believe the Right is looking for a fire where there is no smoke, hard as they want it to be so.

    And you base this upon what facts? Save us some time and tax payer money if you have the answers.

    Funny how quickly this idea turned political. Is there any doubt that there is enough voter and campaign finance fraud to keep Chuck busy for the rest of his life.

    And he did such a great job with John Edwards...I believe the Right is looking for a fire where there is no smoke, hard as they want it to be so.
