Dem Activist On GOP Bro’s Push For Voting Cutbacks: ‘Racist,’ ‘Disgusting’

The Woodhouse brothers are at it again.

It’s not just voting rights advocates who were upset by a North Carolina Republican’s memo to election boards officials pushing new voting restrictions. N.C. GOP Executive Director Dallas Woodhouse’s own brother called him out on it, blasting the memo as “blatantly racist and completely disgusting” on Twitter.

Brad Woodhouse is a Democratic operative who is president of the progressive group Americans United for Change and head of the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Correct the Record.

This is not the first time the family drama over the Woodhouses’ opposing political values has spilled over into the public. When both brothers were on C-SPAN in 2014 to talk about their documentary Woodhouse Divided, their mother Joy called in unplanned to complain about how all their fighting ruined family holidays.

“I don’t know many families that are fighting at Thanksgiving. I was very glad that this Thanksgiving was a year that you two were supposed to go to your in-laws,” she said. “And I’m hoping you’ll have some of this out of your system when you come here for Christmas. I would really like a peaceful Christmas.”

Corrected: Brad Woodhouse is no longer head of American Bridge 21st Century. This story has been corrected to reflect that he is the president of Correct the Record, a Hillary Clinton-supporting super PAC.
