So you thought that incident of voter-registration destruction by a Republican contractor in Harrisonburg was an isolated incident? Recall, it landed that skinhead lookalike with a dozen or so criminal charges.
Don’t be so naive. So says the Virginia politics blog, NotLarrySabato.
More likely, they suggest, it’s part of a longer-running and bigger-picture pattern of GOP efforts to disenfranchise voters in Virginia and perhaps other states.
“A few weeks ago after the Strategic Allied Consulting scandal broke in Florida, the RNC announced it was firing the company and no longer working with.
Now we are learning, that what *actually* happened was the Strategic Allied Consulting staffers were transferred over to a company called Pinpoint. It’s the same people- just under a different name.
That took us to this week, when Colin Small was caught destroying voter registration forms.
Now, for the first time anywhere I can confirm that these same staffers are STILL working for the Republican Party of Virginia out of *6* of their “Victory Offices” around the state.”
The post goes on to note that those offices are Chesapeake; Springfield; Bristow (Prince William County); Sterling; Virginia Beach; and Harrisonburg.
Moreover, the folks in them have shifted from “handling” voter registrations to “handling” absentee ballots!~
I wonder if my daughter Anna in Harrisonburg will get her absentee ballot? She turned in her application on campus the week before last. But who is “handling” that?
