Whew! After getting a load of that mug shot, you are forgiven for gathering your children close in your embrace. There’s evil out there in the world, and some of it destroys voter registration forms in Virginia. Psycho shower scene squeak knife sound! But it’s cool, it’s cool! The Rockingham Sheriff, according to TPM, is pretty sure “there was no indication that the activity was widespread in their jurisdiction and said the conduct ‘appears to be limited in nature.” Which makes total sense. Why wouldn’t the RNC’s grassroots field director (according to his Linked-In), only destroy voter reg forms once? Obviously that is not the kind of thing one does over and over, whenever one gets a fresh stack of applications from, say, the wrong precinct or people (just spitballin’ here) of the wrong demographic. (Party affiliation isn’t listed on Virginia voter reg forms, meaning you have to be more creative in determining whose vote to attempt to void.) Nah, it is more like a crime of passion, unplanned, not at all systemic, to carefully find a dumpster two blocks from the RNC office and illicitly toss an envelope with eight voter reg forms in it. Those sheriffs probably solve every crime with their great perfect logic and human-condition insights.
Anyway, dude worked for “Strategic Allied Consulting,” which used to be Nathan Sproul until he and his company got “fired” for voter registration fraud (spoiler alert: they did not really get fired), but apparently the RNC kept everyone from the organization that had been committing voter registration fraud, but they have a zero tolerance policy for voter registration fraud, so it’s cool. Here you can ask them!
[RNC spokesman Sean] Spicer said that once the accusations were made about dumping registration forms, the employee was immediately fired. He has said that the Republican National Committee had “zero tolerance” for potential fraud.
Jeez, what more do you people want?Related
