By Javier ManjarresA possible voter registration scandal is brewing in Palm Beach County, as the Republican National Committee (RNC) and Florida Republican Party have fired their voter registration consulting firm, Strategic Allied Consulting.
Apparently there were 108 voter registration forms that the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections office deemed questionable when they “noticed signatures that looked alike and incomplete.”
“We have zero tolerance for any threat to the integrity of elections. When we were informed of an alleged incident we immediately cut all ties to the company,” RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer said. -(Fox News)
Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher, a self identified progressive Democrat with a history of rank partisanship during her tensure in the Florida House is at the center of the issue. Bucher, you will recall purposely delayed disclosing the 2010 gubernatorial election night results.
It wasn’t clear until well after 11pm on election night that Republican candidate Rick Scott had beaten Democrat Alex Sink, but the election’s final results could not be announced because Palm Beach County officials took their sweet time counting the ballots. When all the ballots were finally counted, the elections office decided not to make the official announcement until the following morning.This deliberate move proved to be an effective ‘buzz kill’ for Rick Scott’s assembled victory night celebration that was slated to commence regardless of whatever time the results would be announced- Bucher, of course denied any improprieties.
