People's Grand Jury Issues Indictment of Governor and General Assembly For Prohibiting Medicaid Expansion in North Carolina

Watch the Grand Jury issue indictment and deliver it to North Carolina's top elected officials.

The NC NAACP and Forward Together Moral Movement reconvened their People's Grand Jury yesterday, March 23rd, to allow the jury to issue its indictment of the Governor and General Assembly for their denial of Medicaid expansion. After hearing several hours worth of testimony on February 16th and March 2nd, the People's Grand Jury charged them as "guilty" for having violated Article I Section 1, Article I Section 2, and Article XI Section 4 of the North Carolina Constitution. The grand jury also charged them "for violating their North Carolina Legislators' Oath of Office in failing to faithfully discharge their duties by allowing no expert testimony, no public hearings, and no meaningful debate on an issue of life and death to the citizens of North Carolina"; and "for pursuing policies that exhibit a reckless disregard for human life and evidence a significantly high probability of prolonging serious illnesses or needlessly causing death".
