Mark Harris is caught up in an election scandal involving possible fraudulent activity by a campaign operative.

More than 1,000 absentee ballots were possibly destroyed in North Carolina’s Ninth Congressional District election last month, according to CNN.

The race between Republican Mark Harris, who won by just 905 votes, and Democrat Dan McCready came under scrutiny after irregularities with absentee ballots were noted.

The state is also looking into absentee ballots that were collected and possibly filled in by individuals other than the voters.
