Maine’s Republican Party head Charlie Webster says unknown blacks voted November 6.
“In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day,” Charlie Webster told Portland, Me.’s NBC affiliate on Wednesday. “Everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in town knows anyone who’s black. How did that happen? I don’t know. We’re going to find out.”
Webster was unable to provide specifics, but said there were five areas of the state where he said he had concerns. He said he was going to mail thank-you cards for voting to newly registered voters. If some weren’t able to be delivered, he would know there was fraud.
Both the Maine Secretary of State’s office and the head of the state’s association of town clerks told the Portland Press-Herald they were unaware of any problems.
