If your candidate is tweeting denying allegations that she used a pan to attack someone and claiming her intention was to get anyone reporting the story to pay, it could be a red flag. If she continues that with the insinuation that she will use the aforementioned frying pan on other legislators, that’s a big enough red flag to overwhelm a state.
On Tuesday night, Sandy Smith (R) won the North Carolina primaries, and in November she will face Democratic nominee Donald Davis. If she wins, she says she’ll bring her pan to DC – but don’t accuse her of using it for violence. She denies all charges.
The Swamp of Despair DON’T WANT SANDY SMITH. I will not play their perversion.
However, I am bringing a pan to DC. (2/2)

What is it all about?
Based on Rehibilitate, hitting a partner with household items was just one of the allegations made in court documents and resurrected by Smith’s opponents for political ads. A document filed by her then-husband Eric Goranson in 2009, asking for an injunction and stating his facts:
“I was suddenly awakened by a severe headache. Miss Goranson hit my backside with our radio/alarm clock. She continued to attack me with her hands, watch and broom. “
The document goes on to allege the abuse of Smith’s daughter, with descriptions including:
“I left for work early and she was at home dragging her daughter… in the hallway with her hair pulled back, screaming. When she stopped in the living room, she punched (the girl) in the face with a tight fist.”
Her daughter countered the allegation and prompted others to file a 2012 complaint alleging Smith grabbed her by the hair and hit her with her fist for refusing to join the army against her will.
Smith also accused her husband of abuse and both were arrested, although the charges were later dismissed, as Smith said.
Her previous husband reported that she tried to hit him with a frying pan.
Smith has repeatedly brought to light these allegations of domestic abuse, tweeting photos and emojis focusing on the frying pan and deviating from other very serious allegations.
I’m a conservative Republican and the only one who says Trump won, will fight for law and order, will put America first, will lower our gas prices and will ensure protect our borders. Thank you! – Sandy (2/2)

So, what would Smith bring to DC with her, other than a pan, if given the chance?
According to her campaign website, she will carry many anti-choice, pro-gun and anti-immigrant rhetoric. She wants to “build the wall” and require voter ID, as well as promote school choice and “medical freedom” to deny public health mandates. Oh – and WBTV reported that she was part of Trump’s rally at the Capitol on January 6 and prided herself on “supporting the president, fighting for our country,” then – although it’s unknown if she In what capacity did he participate?
