Investigations into accounts of voter suppression during the last Snow Hill election in May have been transferred to Somerset County State’s Attorney Daniel W. Powell, despite the protests of the man bringing the claims.
“We would have preferred that our State’s Attorney investigated the
matter,” said Edward S. Lee, a member of the Snow Hill Circle of Leaders
who is spearheading the request for an investigation.
Lee asserted that the “outcome of this decision could have statewide
implications” and should have been handled by someone familiar with the
area that is also known by the community.
