Va. GOP Fires Vendor Over Fla. Issues

Posted:

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Virginia's Republican Party has canceled its contract with a company it hired to register voters after questions were raised in Florida over voter registration.

The state GOP paid $500,000 to Virginia-based Strategic Allied Consulting in August to provide new voter and absentee ballot registration services.

Virginia Republican Chairman Pat Mullens says in a statement that the state party takes any threat to the voting process seriously.

More than 100 suspect forms submitted by the company in several Florida counties have been turned over to local prosecutors.

Strategic Allied Consulting has said the problems in Florida were caused by a single rogue employee.

State Republican parties in North Carolina and Colorado also have canceled contracts with the company.
