This smells to high heaven. I wonder how much the Dems paid this guy to throw away eight registration forms to cast aspersions on the GOP? Eight forms are not enough to change any election, especially a presidential election. If someone wants to commit fraud, they need to burn a few thousand forms.

Both major parties are just as guilty of voter fraud but on a much bigger scale than this idiot who trashed these voter registration forms... just another reason to NOT support this two-party duopoly. GARY JOHNSON 2012!

"Small worked for Pinpoint, a firm paid by the Republican Party of Virginia to get potential voters signed up. The Rockingham County sheriff says the alleged crimes were isolated, and did not appear to target a specific party or profile. Valley registrars agree.

"There's no way to tell by party when people fill out these forms, what party they're affiliated with," said Rockingham County Registrar Doug Geib. "So I don't think there's any political motivation."

Why would the republican party pay money to register democrats?

If this guy was working for a Republican backed company to encourage people to register to vote, would it not seem reasonable that most people drawn to register were Republicans. If this was fraud based, why would he through these away. He sounds like just a lazy person who wanted to collect a pay check and "toss" his work.

HELLO!

Registration groups, such as this, ARE NOT ALLOWED under law to only take a registration form from people who announce their support for the candidate the group works for.

THEREFORE, as we've seen in other places, the advocacy group is MORE LIKLEY to discard the registration forms of people they think are opposed to their candidate/party. They 'conveniently' misplace them, put them in the 'round file', or as this dude purposefully attempt to destroy evidence - in the landfill.
wow

I couldn't agree more, given how conservative the valley is, these 8 registration forms were probably people who expressed support for Obama.when I was in college we were told to skip the houses that had campaign signs in the yard, because they were likely already registered to vote.

Voter registration should be a function solely of the State, not private parties of ANY persuasion. Allowing these so-called "public-interest" groups to participate in the registration process is a perversion of (small-d) democracy, and can, and probably often does,result in fraudulent registrations.Interesting to note that nationally,(big-D) Democrats are far more involved with activist group registration "drives" than Republicans. It is time to ban these activities and go back to registration controlled exclusively by the State.

Vote for Romnesia. He will get TOUGH with China. Just etchnsketch the fact he owns a lot of stock in Bain that is shipping American Sensata jobs to China so they pay 1/10 the salary.

So Mitt is profiting through his investments in Bain which is De-CREATING jobs here and rewarding China at the same time. A two-fer!

I have to laugh at the comedians who for some strange reason think "The Democrats hired this person, implanted him into a GOP employed company, to throw away voter registration forms to cast a shadow on the Repuglicans". That is as far out a theory as I have heard since Rush talked about Candy Crowly was paid by our President to choose Democratic friendly questions.

This company was employed by the RNC to registrar voters in 5 swing states. When the RNC chairman hired this firm, he was aware of past problems, and told the owner to change the company's name. This company has again had voter registration problems in the last few months. Florida Registrars found out about improprieties and the GOP there fired them

Now we find Gov. Bobbie, Coo-che-coo, et all, kept this company on the state GOP payroll, and they have now gotten bitten by this decision. If this was a Democratic Party situation, the hounds of out-rage would be at the doors howling. Well it's my turn to howl. It's time for Gov. Bobbie, Coo-che-coo and their crooked friends to RESIGN THEIR POSITIONS and put some honest people back in Richmond.

Again, if this were a situation where the Democrats had hired this company the out-rage, justifiable so, would demand answers, or at least condemnation. Bobbie, Coo-che-coo, Eric, Hurt, Allen, et all are very quite.

WHY??????????

more to come

Expect more of the same from Mitt, if elected. His economic policies are the same as those tried under Bush, and we know where that led us.

"Between December 1999 and December 2009 manufacturing employment fell from 17.3 million to 11.5 million"

from January 2010 to July 2012 manufacturing jobs increased by 532,000

It is clear that this entire scheme was cooked up by desperate democrats. They knew Romney is about to sweep Virginia, so they got someone into this company to make it look like Republicans are trying to cheat. It was only 8 forms thrown away, so you know it was not real cheating, and I bet if you looked, every one of the 8 was a patriotic conservative.

There is no political trick too dirty for these liberals, and we need to go after them as soon as this election sweeps the Conservatives into power! Payback is sweet!

I completely agree with this and so should everyone on both sides. The temptation for any sort of trickery and the probability of same is just too great.
