Firm hired by Florida GOP knew weeks ago of possibly fraudulent voter registrations

Republicans say they didn't hear about the flawed forms until a week later when told about them by a Palm Beach Post reporter.

But Cheryl Johnson, Lee County's voter registration director, told the Times/Herald on Tuesday that she noticed some odd applications that came quite a bit earlier, on Aug. 28. It looked like someone had checked Republican in a number of party registration boxes in a manner that didn't match the way the rest of the application was filled out. Four of the forms appeared to have been filled out by the same person.

Johnson called the person who dropped them off, a Strategic Allied Consulting employee named Danielle Alvarez. On Sept. 6 12 days before they learned about the Palm Beach forms Johnson met with Alvarez and a man named Jack Reed.

"They said they were shocked," Johnson said. "They told me that they fired someone and it wouldn't happen again." Johnson said they took copies of the questionable forms and promised they would call back. But that was the last Johnson heard from them.
