Meet Colin Small. He’s a Pennsylvanian who until recently was working for Virginia Republicans in the Harrisonburg area. He’s been arrested for allegedly destroying voter registration application forms.
From Talking Points Memo:
Colin Small, a 31-year-old resident of Phoenixville, Pa., worked for Pinpoint, a company hired to register voters on behalf of the Republican Party of Virginia. Prosecutors charged him with four counts of destruction of voter registration applications, eight counts of failing to disclose voter registration applications and one count of obstruction of justice.
Wow. That’s a lot of crimes. Small was allegedly spotted disposing of completed voter registration forms in a dumpster behind a Harrisonburg store. Presumably, he was not ditching applications from anybody he expected would vote for Romney or other Republicans.
Keep in mind the GOP is the party that has been crying wolf for at least two years about nonexistent “voter fraud,” and, as a “solution” pushing voter ID laws that will tend to suppress the votes of college students, minorities and the elderly.
Not coincidentally, those were all big constituencies for Barack Obama in the 2008 campaign.
Their chutzpah and hypocrisy on this issue is extraordinary.
