    Three Va. congressmen call for voter fraud investigation

    Three Virginia congressmen are calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to conduct a multi-state investigation of voter fraud connected to Strategic Allied Consulting and its subsidiary Pinpoint.

    Pinpoint operates in not only Loudoun County, but Chesapeake City, Fairfax County, Prince William County and Virginia Beach.

    In a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Reps. James P. Moran, Gerry Connolly and Robert C. Scott, all Democrats, asks the DOJ to determine “if a pattern of voting registration irregularities related to Strategic Allied Consulting are connected and constitute a broader conspiracy of voter registration fraud.”

    The inquiry stems from reports that an employee of Pinpoint was charged in Rockingham County with 13 counts of destruction of voter registration, disclosure of voter registration information and obstruction of justice.

    Strategic Allied Consulting is under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and faces more than 200 allegations of voter registration fraud, including registration of the deceased, according to the letter sent by the congressmen.

    Allegations of voter fraud by the company also have been raised in Arizona and Colorado.

    “The number of allegations in a multitude of locations would seem to suggest something more than the isolated acts of a ‘few bad apples’,” the congressmen wrote.

    The Republican National Committee and five state committees have severed ties with Strategic Allied Consulting, but the congressmen said they’re concerned that the alleged illegal practices may be continuing under its subsidiary Pinpoint.

    lol


    Hey Skid Row - are you actually on Skid Row, or perhaps are you referring to the 80’s hair band of the same name ?  In either case, it’s shocking to see a Republican on Skid Row, or listening to devil music, which is always associated with leftist beliefs.  I’m so confused.


    Thanks for clearing that up skidrow.

      You are clearly are a person of even temperament, immune to knee-jerk reactions or politically-driven explanations for the complexities you see around you.

    We thank you for your wisdom and encourage you to continue dispensing it here for many years to come.


    @skidrow
    Do republicans (like you, generalizing) have morals when it comes to playing by the rules, considering that actual voter registrations forms were dumped?


    Congressman Moran’s son didn’t break any laws, but his actions don’t look go in the court of public opinion. When you tell people how to cheat the system, you disenfranchise voters who obey the rules. Obviously Democrats have no morals when it comes to playing by the rules in the face of imminent defeat.


    Don’t worry, Eric “Missing in Action” Holder won’t do a thing and if he does, he’ll deny it later. This guy should have resigned months ago.


    He was on video explaining HOW you could forge utility bills in order to cast votes as other people.  He didn’t ACTUALLY forge utility bills and cast votes as other people.  Remember Virginians, we cannot vote early here, only vote absentee. 
    Far different than the kid from PA. who was CAUGHT throwing completed voter registration forms away in a dumpster.
    Potentially jeopardizing somebody’s right to vote is far worse than talking about voter fraud on hidden camera.


    Hate to break in with facts while everyone is comparing Congressman Moran’s son’s error in judgement with an actual crime committed in the case of SAC/Pinpoint.

    In the case of the Moran kid, he was approached by an undercover operative for a conservative activist organization (Project Veritas) and pitched an idea for voter fraud.  He listened to the guy who was trying to entrap him, expressed doubts about the plan and finally (arguably to get away from the guy) said “he’d look into it.” 

    That’s not quite the same thing as actually registering voters and then throwing their forms in the dumpster. 

    Those commenters here suggesting the two incidents are even roughly equivalent are either just uninformed or, as they say, partisan hacks.


    It’s humorous that Colin Small’s name is not mentioned in either the article, nor in the five responses.  Steer the commentary toward one person on one video, rather than look into the fact that this company was hired by the RNC to oversee voter registrations in five states?  After Sproull was caught for former fraud, he started another company and was told to change the name because of his impropriety.  More than isolated incidents. Typical?


    Uh…. didn’t Project Veritas just nab Moran’s son on video?


    Rep. Moran’s son was caught on hidden camera detailing how someone can forge utility bills in order to vote for multiple people.


    Explain please.


    I was thinking the same thing, Barbara. What Congressman Moran’s son appears to be saying on tape dwarfs any allegations against SAC/Pinpoint. That’s not to give a free pass to SAC/Pinpoint, but rather I’m saying that it shouldn’t be partisan and that the Justice Dept. should probably be looking at both.


    And Congessman Moran is calling for the investigation of his son too, yes?
