FL Criminal Probe has been Launched into the GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal

State law enforcement agency says they have ‘found enough evidence to warrant a full-blown investigation’

Dept. of State advises election officials to sequester fraudulent registrations which ‘may become evidence used in court’

As Reuters reports tonight…

Authorities in Florida said they had opened a criminal probe into the activities of Strategic Allied Consulting, the firm hired by the Republican Party to register new voters in the crucial swing state ahead of next month’s presidential election.

A spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said the agency had found enough evidence to warrant a full-blown investigation of Strategic Allied, a Virginia-based voter registration company doing work for the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Florida.

The Florida Division of Elections on Friday forwarded a complaint to FDLE after reports of suspicious voter registration forms linked to the company first surfaced in Palm Beach County.

“After reviewing this complaint, FDLE has decided that a criminal investigation into these allegations is warranted,” said FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger in an email.
