Fraud accusations mount for voter registration company switching party [View all]

http://www.sacbee.com/2012/05/18/4498789/fraud-accusations-mount-for-voter.html


A woman suspected of voter registration fraud in Sacramento County has been the subject of complaints in other campaigns as well. The registrar of voters in El Dorado County sent a warning to Monica Harris last year after problems with registrations collected at Folsom Lake College.

...

Sacramento County Registrar of Voters Jill LaVine recently announced that she had turned over thousands of suspect registration cards turned in by Harris' company to the California secretary of state's office. In some cases, LaVine has received complaints from people who unknowingly had their party registration switched to Republican.

...

The Republican Party of Sacramento County paid Harris' company $5 for each person who joined the party. Bounties contribute to fraud and inaccuracy in registration drives, Pan and other critics say. However, a Republican Party spokeswoman recently said the system pays only for proper registrations, and checks by the party and elections officials prevent fraud.

LaVine has said her office has spent countless hours trying to unwind sloppy and perhaps fraudulent work by Harris' company. LaVine's workers have also been frustrated by Harris' company turning in registration cards for people who live outside Sacramento County.

.



So the Republican side of what they claimed ACORN to be is corporations in the business of registering voters? WFT?
