North Carolina AG won’t bring charges against Mark Meadows over voter registration

Mark Meadows, once White House chief of staff to former President Trump, will not face voter fraud charges related to his 2020 registration and absentee vote in North Carolina, according to the state’s attorney general.

“The State Bureau of Investigation conducted an extensive investigation into the fraud allegations against Mr. and Mrs. Meadows concerning their registration and voting in the 2020 elections,” Attorney General Josh Stein said in a Friday news release. “After a thorough review, my office has concluded that there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges against either of them in this matter.”

“Our conclusion was … they had arguments that would help them if a case was brought such that we didn’t believe we could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they had engaged in intentional voter fraud,” Stein, a Democrat, told The Associated Press on the same day.
