Additionally, special speaker Haywood resident, Andrew Morgan, gave a personal testimony of his faith, Islam.

North Carolina G.O.P. Chairman Indicted in Corruption Probe
The chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party and one of the state’s leading political donors together sought to use campaign contributions to bribe the state’s insurance commissioner, federal prosecutors said in an indictment that was unsealed on Tuesday.
The 23-page indictment — detailed with accounts of clandestine airport meetings and promises of millions of dollars in illicit donations — intensified the political tumult in a state already roiled by partisan warfare and a fraud-tainted congressional election. And it also showed how, at least in the judgment of prosecutors, a leading political operative and one of his most important benefactors tried to shape government oversight in one of the nation’s largest states. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/02/us/robin-hayes-nc-indictment.html
