Friday News: We stand with Elaine

NO IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST MARSHALL THIS SESSION, BUT EFFORT WILL CONTINUE: The N.C. House is unlikely to act on a request to investigate Secretary of State Elaine Marshall before this legislative session ends, the legislator who is pursuing potential impeachment proceedings against her said Thursday evening. But Rep. Chris Millis, a Republican from Hampstead, said his efforts will continue during the interim between legislative sessions, along with an independent probe that he has alluded to. House Speaker Tim Moore said the House would wait for “a deliberate process” to take place. “Outside counsel, someone who is a prosecutor in the state” is going to look at it, Moore said. In a House Rules Committee meeting on Wednesday, Millis had said an investigation by an outside agency could be proceeding, without divulging what that agency might be.
