Gov. Pat McCrory refused to meet with a 12-year-old Burlington girl yesterday who hoped to bring her voting rights concerns to the governor.

Madison Kimrey created a YouTube video and gathered more than 11,000 signatures through a petition on MoveOn.org calling for an opportunity to meet with Gov. Pat McCrory.

Yesterday afternoon, she set up a table and chairs outside the state Capitol Building, and brought a chocolate pound cake for the occasion, according to WNCN.

When sked for a reaction, the governor’s communications director said, “It’s unfortunate the media is falling for liberal political stunts at the expense of good journalism.”

Kimrey’s hope was to meet with McCrory to talk about the voter ID bill, specifically the part prohibiting 16- and 17-year-olds from pre-registering to vote, as well as the cookies he brought out to protesters concerned about the abortion bill.
