Governor Cooper’s Incompetent COVID-19 Management Leads to the Release of Thousands of Prisoners

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     Despite his flashy campaign commercials, Governor Cooper's COVID-19 response has been marked by incompetence. Governor Cooper entered into a settlement agreement with far-left activists to release at least 3500 convicted criminals. According the plaintiffs, the agreement marks one of the largest prisoner releases in the COVID-19 era, which is particularly concerning because the settlement lacks specific language to prohibit violent offenders and convicted sex offenders from getting an early release.

    "Governor Cooper's incompetent management of the COVID-19 crisis risks turning a public health crisis into a public safety crisis," said NCGOP Communications Director Tim Wigginton.
