I noticed a news story this morning on WRAL TV 5 out of Raleigh NC. The news story was about 2 Durham men, who own a Carpentry business and they had plead guilty to smuggling Illegal Immigrants into this country. So basically they plead guilty to human trafficking.
Here’s the full text of the WRAL Story in case the story gets scrubbed:
New Bern, N.C. — Two Durham men pleaded guilty Wednesday to bringing immigrants illegally from Mexico for their home construction business, federal authorities said.
Jose Lopez and Juan Antonio Lopez own J&A Framers Carpentry Inc., which has about a dozen eight-person framing crews. The brothers notified people in their hometown that they needed workers and loaned people money to cover the cost of being smuggled into the U.S., authorities said. The brothers also rented rooms to the illegal workers.
The operation ran from 2004 until last December, authorities said.
The brothers each pleaded guilty to conspiring to conceal, harbor and shield illegal aliens. As part of the pleas, they agreed to forfeit $250,000 to the government.
They will be sentenced later, when they face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

I noticed the Surnames of the 2 men were ‘Lopez’. One of them was “Jose Lopez”. I thought to myself, that’s Durham NC’s chief of police. Actually it’s NOT the same guy.
But, that got me to thinking about whether or not these smugglers were registered to VOTE or NOT. Sure enough, according to the FULL name of one of Criminals, Juan Antonio Lopez and the Durham County Board of Elections, YES, he’s registered & he VOTES! That led the hamster (in my Head) onto his little wheel and lo & behold, our Chief of Police is NOT REGISTERED to VOTE in Durham County! See screen grabs below!
Now, let us delve into our Chief of Police’s voter info…shall we???? His full name is Jose Luis Lopez:
Now, here’s page 2 once you click “Search”:
Does anyone other than me find it unusual that someone who holds the high office of “Chief of Police” and they are NOT registered to vote in their own County?
And yet, if I take it one step further, I DO find him listed on the NC State Board Of Elections site? He’s listed there but NOT on Durham County’s Site (The County where he lives and holds office) the State BoE gets their info from the individual 100 counties of NC. You can’t Register to vote in the STATE, you Register to vote in a County, within the STATE.
I find it ‘Unusual’ that an official is
registered with the State,
and NOT with the County!
And I even went back to the Durham County BoE Site, and entered ALL of Senor Lopez’s information:
Voter ID number; Street Address; I tried it w/ the “SR”(Aka = Senior) on the end of his name and Still NO Results on Durham County’s BoE Site. However, if you search ONLY the last name of “Lopez” and you pan through all of the names, you DO find him.
Hummm….. Computer search glitch OR is Durham County doing something fishy?
Of course, the liberals will say; It’s not unusual…
Please note that I have done my own homework on this (Jose L. Lopez the Durham Police Chief) and it is inconclusive at this point. If anyone else has some information, I would appreciate a comment being left. Thank you.
