And by disseminating disinformation, it made liars out of a bunch of misguided volunteers, as well:
RALEIGH, NC–4:55 PM, Friday, April 12, 2013. Late this afternoon, we learned that some of our findings, revealed at the April 10 public Legislative hearing, may be inaccurate; so we plan to issue a full report after completing an audit. While we regret this human error and apologize for any embarrassment it may have caused to the presenters and to election officials, we caution the public against losing sight of the undeniable fact that North Carolina’s voter rolls are so corrupted that, without an effective voter ID law, it will be impossible to know who is really voting.
That's what's known as a logical leap: to admit your information is corrupted by inaccuracy, and then immediately follow that admission with a statement of "undeniable fact". This is not the first time DeLancey has been confounded by the truth:
Considering our right to vote is one of the most precious rights we have, you're damned straight there should be a lawyer involved if one citizen (for some reason) feels the need to take that right away from another.
In a sane world, this admission would leave DeLancey standing by himself, with no lawmakers hanging on his every word. But we don't live there, and our current crop of Legislators neither need nor want accurate information in their quest to silence the voice of the people.
