Management of the State of North Carolina - I clearly asked the Attorney General, Mr. Roy Cooper for an investigation into illegal and unethical acts committed by the current Chairman of the Forsyth County Board of Elections, Ms. Linda Sutton. My request was ignored.
The FC Democratic Party chairman, Mrs. Susan Campbell has stated that she submitted the Former FC Commissioner Mr. Beaufort Bailey's name to the N.C.

Management for Forsyth County - County Manager, Dudley Watts shared that he works directly for the Board of County Commissioners. He further stated the Board of Elections is supervised by the State Board of Elections and by statute the County is only responsible for funding the operation. He advised that the Board of Elections is a separate board and it would be inappropriate for him to be involved in the investigation. However, on June 30, 2010, he received an audit report from the Forsyth County Internal Audit Division which identified management actions for the Director of the Board of Elections, Rob Coffman. (note - please refer to page 3 of the Forsyth County Internal Audit Report)
