The State Board Of Elections says it will not ask Virginia’s Attorney General to investigate the case of a Republican Party contract worker, accused of throwing voter registration forms in the trash.
State Senator Donald McEachin, who is chair of the Senate Democratic Caucus, asked the attorney general to investigate following the arrest of after Colin Small.
Small was a contractor hired by the Republican Party of Virginia to conduct voter registration drives.
He was charged after investigators say as many as nine applications he collected were found in a trash bin behind a Harrisonburg store.
The attorney general says he only looks into election issues after a request from the State Board of Elections.
“There’s no way to tell by party when people fill out these forms, what party they’re affiliated with, so I don’t think there’s any political motivation,” Virginia Registrar Brandi Lilly said Friday.
Somebody working as an operative for the Republican party disposes of registration forms, and the Board of Elections does not think "there's any political motivation?" WTF?
Do they really think he was just arbitrarily throwing away registration forms that might have contained those from people registering as Republicans? Seriously?
Okay THIS is proof positive that all of that garbage about passing Voter ID laws was NOTHING more than a partisan attempt to keep Obama supporters from coming to the polls. (As if we needed further proof of that.)
If they had REALLY been interested in fighting voter fraud they would be all over this. Especially since there is proof that this goes much further than just Virginia.
