|Please become a citizen co-signer of a letter from Democratic members of Congress urging the US Department of Justice to investigate Republican National Committee contractor Strategic Allied Consulting for committing voter registration fraud in multiple swing states. Click here to sign.
Earlier this week, 40,000 members of the Daily Kos community sent an email to the Virginia State Board of Elections (VSBOE) demanding an investigation into a voter registration supervisor employed by Pinpoint, a subsidiary of Strategic Allied Consulting, after he was arrested and charged with 13 counts of voter registration fraud.
Two days ago, in a complete reversal of their earlier position, the VSBOE called a special meeting and unanimously voted to request just such an investigation from the state attorney general. The investigation will begin immediately.
This is a real grassroots victory in the fight against voter suppression, but our struggle is not confined to one state. Florida authorities are also investigating possible voter registration fraud committed by Strategic Allied Consulting, which was contracted by the Republican National Committee in multiple swing states.
Democratic members of Congress are calling on the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to launch a multi-state investigation into Strategic Allied Consulting. A federal agency, such as the DOJ, is our best hope at getting to the bottom of this because they have the authority to work across state lines.
