Re: “Wake County Board of Education: Benton, Johnson-Hostler, Felton and Fletcher

Bill Fletcher as the nonpartisan choice in District 9? Hardly! He gave up any claim as nonpartisan when he sued June Atkinson after he lost the election for State Superintendent. Does anyone remember that nasty business that cost him his BOE seat the first time?

Back in 2004 when he lost the election by 8,500 votes, he sued to disenfranchise 11,000 votes cast out of precinct on provisional ballots. The Democratically controlled General Assembly eventually decided the election for Atkinson.

Bygones you say? Fast forward to last month when the Republicans in the legislature passed their draconian voter restrictions. Among the changes is the prohibition of out-of-precinct ballots, based on the Fletcher-Atkinson race, http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/08/18/4246395/new-law-bars-voting-outside-of.html
