“This is just election year hijinks,” Miller told the Watauga Democrat. "It is appalling that the State Board of Elections would join in with the local Democrats to issue this notice right before this general election, when the Democrats have been harping on this with them for the last couple months. It is politically motivated.”
For the record: the Watauga Democratic Party has not "harped" on anything to do with the Watauga GOP and its financial dealings. WataugaDems have not complained to the SBOE, have not been in contact with the SBOE, have not communicated in any way with the SBOE regarding Watauga GOP bookkeeping.
We did begin posting on this site about the charges after they broke into the open, amazed as the rest of you about the carelessness of Miller & Company.
To suggest that the SBOE fine is "politically motivated" and that somehow the Watauga Democratic Party is in cahoots with the Republican-dominated SBOE is low comedy. It may come as a surprise to Mr. Miller, but the Watauga Democratic Party is not high on the invite list at the SBOE.
