Embarrassing to say the least.

From the article:

The North Carolina Board of Elections on Thursday ordered a new contest in the Ninth Congressional District after the Republican candidate, confronted by evidence that his campaign had financed an illegal voter-turnout effort, called for a new vote.

The unanimous ruling by the five-member board was a startling — and, for Republicans, embarrassing — conclusion to a case that has convulsed North Carolina since November. And it capped a dramatic stretch of testimony that described how a political operative had orchestrated an absentee ballot scheme to try to sway the race, now the single undecided contest in last year’s midterms.
