I received this email in my inbox this morning. If this is happening in Virginia, a key swing state in this election, you can bet it"s happening elsewhere too.
Dear Virginia MoveOn member,
A contractor for the Republican Party of Virginia was arrested on October 18, 2012, and accused of disposing of voter registration forms in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The integrity of our elections is paramount, and every Virginian should be assured that their vote counts.
The Virginia Attorney General has refused to investigate this situation, even though there are indications that this voter registration fraud may be more widespread. The firm which employed this contractor has worked for the Republican Party of Virginia in multiple locations, including Chesapeake City, Fairfax County, Prince William County, Loudon County, and Virginia Beach City.
Additionally, just last month the Republican Party of Virginia terminated its contract with Strategic Allied Consulting over allegations of voter registration fraud. However, news reports indicate the party continued to employ many of Strategic Allied's employees, one of whom has now been arrested.
Our elections should be free, fair, and accessible. Virginians cannot be confident that every eligible voter who wishes may participate in our democracy without a thorough and transparent investigation into the extent of this fraud.
Brian Devine, the sender of this email, created a petition which will be sent to Attorney General Eric Holder and U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings, ranking member of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
