Lawmaker calls for NC Secretary of State to resign or risk impeachment

March 28, 2017

RALEIGH — State Rep. Chris Millis (R-Onslow) is asking for the resignation of Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, under threat of impeachment if she does not. In a press conference Tuesday morning, Millis presented documents outlining a long-term practice from Marshall's office of providing illegal residents authority to act as notaries on official documents, along with what he says is an intentional effort to hide the practice from the public and lawmakers. "I've sent a letter to the Secretary of State Elaine Marshall requesting her immediate resignation," said Millis at a press conference Tuesday. "Within my letter to the secretary I've made it clear that if the secretary chooses not to resign I will proceed with all legislative actions including a resolution for impeachment."
