FDLE Investigating GOP Voter Fraud Case

| October 4, 2012

Following allegations of fraud, state law enforcement officials said Wednesday they launched a formal criminal investigation into the activities of Strategic Allied Consulting, a Virginia-based company hired by the Republican Party of Florida to register voters in preparation for the November elections. Both the RPOF and the Republican National Committee severed ties with the company after allegations arose last week that registrations were improperly gathered. A spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said the agency received a complaint Friday from by the Florida Department of State and has since found enough evidence to warrant a full-blown probe. Suspect voter registration forms have shown up in at least 10 counties including Palm Beach, where more than 100 were discovered. “After reviewing this complaint, FDLE has decided that a criminal investigation into these allegations is warranted,” said FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger in an email. “This is now an active investigation, which precludes us from providing further information until such time that the investigation is complete.”–News Service of Florida
