U.S. House Candidate files election complaint following false text

WDAY RADIO  — North Dakota U.S. House Primary Election winner Julie Fedorchak and her campaign officially filed a complaint with two federal agencies following a text that falsely claimed the candidate dropped out of the race on election day.

The Campaign’s Attorney, Shane Goettle, alleges the text amounted to election interference. While the complaints were not released to the public, the campaign has stated at a previous press conference that the text reached thousands of state residents as voting was ongoing.

“This is, at minimum, election fraud, and it’s a desperate tactic to influence and discourage voters,” Fedorchak said at the press conference.

“We’ve alerted the U.S. Attorney’s Office to this as well, because they have a responsibility to ensure that our elections are run in ways that aren’t patently deceptive to voters and they have a responsibility to ensure that elections are run in a fair and impartial manner,” Goettle said in a conversation with The North Dakota Monitor.
