The investigation into voter registration fraud in Virginia has expanded beyond Colin Small, the former employee of a GOP-hired firm called Strategic Allied Consulting, according to The Washington Post.
Sources have told the Post that the investigation is now
looking at whether Small’s supervisors instructed him or his colleagues
to inquire about the political leanings of potential voters during
registration drives, which is illegal in the state.
Small’s former employer is Nathan Sproul, owner of Strategic Allied
Consulting and a slew of similar political consulting companies that have been investigated for fraud intended to illegally suppress Democratic voters.
That wasn’t enough to stop Mitt Romney’s campaign, Karl Rove, or the Republican party from hiring Sproul’s companies to do work for them.
On Monday, the day before most Americans will exercise their right to
vote, Small will appear in court to respond to charges that he
intentionally tried to stop some Virginians from being able to cast
Small was arrested after a store manager in Harrisonburg, Va., saw a
man drive up and toss a bag into a reycling been. When that store
manager discovered voter registration forms inside the bag, he called
the police and told them he thought he recognized the car as one he’d
seen parked outside the Rockingham County Republican Party headquarters.
Small faces eight felony charges of election fraud. POST
