PRESS RELEASE
NCDP PATSY KEEVER (AYCOCK) WAS SERVED A VERIFIED
GRIEVANCE/PETITION CHARGING HER AND THE 13 NC
CONGRESSIONAL
DISTRICT CHAIRS FOR HOLDING UNCONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTIONS,
VIOLATING THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT AND DISENFRANCHISING
NC AFRICAN AMERICAN AUXILLIARY CAUCUS VOTERS.

NCDP CHAIRPERSON SERVED WITH A GRIEVANCE/PETITION AND CHARGED WITH DELIBERATELY DIRECTING
THE COUNTY AND DISTRICT DEMOCRATIC CHAIRPERSONS SPECIFICALLY, BECAUSE SHE FAILED AN/OR
REFUSED TO PERFORM HER REQUIRED DUTIES AMONG OTHER WRONGFUL ACTS, CONDUCT AND BEHAVIOR
PURSUANT TO THE NCDP PLAN OF ORGANIZATION.
When served, NCDP chairpersons Keever (Aycock) reaction was said to have been surprised like a deer in the headlights
when she received the Grievance/Petition.
President, Jannet Barnes, of the African American Caucus Auxiliary of the North Carolina Democratic Party and other NC
Democratic Party members signed a Grievance and Petition to VOID ABINITIO the May 21, 2016.the 13 NC Congressional
District Conventions, because they (Patsy Keever (Aycock) and the 13 District chairpersons) did, wrongfully and deliberately,
if not illegally conduct conventions in unconstitutional congressional Districts.
The facts and the Federal Court Judges rulings and decisions say the NC congressional Districts were unconstitutional and
violated the 14th amendment equal protection clause and also violated the Voting Rights Act. The facts also reveal the courts
decisions are well known to most if not all NC political legislative members in the Democratic and Republican Parties Since
February 17, 2016.
Yet, NCDP Chairperson Patsy Keever (Aycock) and her 13 NC Congressional District chairs deliberately disregarded/ignored
the Federal courts ruling and decisions; that the 13 NC Congressional Districts had to be redrawn and filed with the court on
a date certain; that no elections can be held in those districts until the 13 Congressional districts have been redrawn.
In light of the Federal Court Judges ruling and decisions that the NC congressional Districts were unconstitutional, they
violated the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause and violated the Voting Rights Act, no Congressional District
Conventions should have been held in those Districts.
The NCDP Chairperson and her County and District Chairs decided, without Authority, to convene 13 NC Congressional
District Conventions in the old districts and wrongfully held elections for delegates and NCDP Council of Review Committee
members among other business matters in the unconstitutional Districts.
What is repeatedly being said from the Various congressional District Conventions however, is that several conventions DID
NOT HAVE the required credentials committees, did not have credential committee reports, and did not have occasion for the
approval of credential committee reports.
According to John Brooks NCDP chair of the Council of Review Committee (COR).The reason that this is so important for
conventions, is that they are electing delegates to a national convention, and because these committees determine the
accuracy of the multiplier number used in giving weight to the votes cast. This multiplier number is the number of delegates
to which each county at a convention is entitled. This number is controlled by the number of valid delegates elected to the
convention. Some lists submitted do not have the maximum number of delegates listed and this reduces the multiplier
number. Some lists include the names of registered Republicans and independents and these names, after verification, are
deleted from the lists, further reducing the multiplier number. This year there was no determination of the legitimacy of the

delegates on the lists submitted, and therefore there was no verification of the accuracy of the multiplier numbers used. A
normal credential committee report to a convention for inclusion in the minutes of the convention will list both the number of
votes to which each county is originally entitled and the number to which each county is actually entitled after the verification
process is completed. In the absence of valid adopted credential committee reports, there can be no validating of any
balloting. Such balloting is VOID ABINITIO.
The AAC-NCDP Auxiliary (where the majority of African-American democratic voters reside within 52 of the 100
NC Counties) believe they have been stripped of their constitutional equal protection directly and/or indirectly, as well as
disenfranchised because of the Voting Rights Act violation.
