Congressmen Want Justice Department To Probe GOP Voter Drives In Florida, Virginia
Three House Democrats asked Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday to order a Justice Department investigation into a voter registration drive paid for by the Republican National Committee that has been connected to alleged tampering in at least two states.
Reps. Jim Moran, Bobby Scott and Gerry Connolly, all of Virginia, asked investigators to look into political consultant Nathan Sproul and two companies, Strategic Allied Consulting and Pinpoint, that were all involved in the drive. The effort ran into trouble in Florida and Virginia in recent weeks with accusations of fraud and destruction of voter registration forms.
A Justice Department spokesman said the agency received the letter and was reviewing it but had no further comment.
