NCGOP Statement on Orange County Firebombing Investigation
"The NCGOP absolutely condemns anyone refusing to cooperate with investigators regarding the political terrorist firebombing of the Orange County GOP office. The person or persons responsible must be held accountable for their crime. It is inappropriate to discuss the actions of a Federal Grand Jury, and anybody who refuses to comply with a lawful subpoena in this case should be incarcerated until they do. Terrorism against our political institutions can not stand. The state is offering the $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the firebombing, which the NCGOP will match with an additional 5,000. If anyone has additional information about the case, now is the time to speak up. Throughout this process we have continually been impressed with the dedication and professionalism of local, state and federal law enforcement authorities. We can't thank them enough for their service." - NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes
"This was not just an attack on Orange County, it was an attack on democracy," said Waddy Davis, Orange County GOP Chairman. "Refusing to comply with a lawful order to appear before an investigative Grand Jury, and encouraging others with critical information to do the same, is giving aid and comfort to the political terrorists who committed these crimes."
