GOP Consulting Firm Admits Voter Registration Forms were Bogus
Two former employees of a Republican consulting firm admitted forging voter registration forms, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Citing a report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, AP reported that employees of Strategic Allied Consulting employees admitted to engaging in voter registration fraud.
The company had been hired by Republicans to do voter registation in Florida, but was fired by the GOP, which also turned the company in to law enforcement.
AP reported there are other cases involving alleged fraud by Strategic Allied Consulting that remain under investigation. AP also quoted a lawyer representing the company saying that out of 2,000 employees in Florida, no more than six are involved in allegations of fraud.
“We had had a few employees who were not good employees,” the lawyer, Frederick Petti, said. “They were filling out fake forms.”
The two former employees were placed on probation because neither had a criminal history, AP reported.
