NC Rep. David Lewis Denies Deceiving Redistricting Court in Covington Case


A leading Republican legislator involved in the redistricting, State Representative David R. Lewis, issued a sweeping denial of the charges in the filing, calling allegations of misrepresentation “a complete fabrication.”
“The legislative maps I presented in 2017 were drawn on a state computer using criteria adopted publicly by the redistricting committee,” he said in a news release late Thursday. “I had no input on or control of any play maps Dr. Hofeller may have drawn on his personal computer on his own time.” Mr. Lewis’s lawyer had speculated earlier that any maps related to the case on the backups had been drawn by Mr. Hofeller in his spare time, out of personal interest.
