    If I recall correctly, the guy worked for a third party who was contracted by the GOP.

    That's how they (both parties) try insulate themselves against criminal charges.

    "We did an investigation and fired the contractors who did it."

    You'll recall that in 2008 Passport records of 3 Presidential Candidates were illegally accessed in the State Department and the subsequent investigation pinned it on "contractors" who were then fired.

    Well lets look at the text:

    So he did work for the GOP. It would be interesting to see what persons were on the ballots and see if they were all of like gender or race. Eight votes shouldn't be that big a deal. But the overarching hope is that the VA SOS office should contact these people and make sure they are registered in time to vote.

    Why do any Republican want to suppress the vote in this election?

    Think about it. Who really wants to keep Obama, and do they really outnumber those who want Obama to leave? If anything, Republicans should try to sign up as many people as possible--especially people that have worked and unemployed.

    Republicans should have a registration drive at the unemployment office!! Think about it--Rpublicans winning argument is the economy. (And Republicans do have a lot of (imho) sucky issues they wish to enforce) Do what the Democrats do--go to the people you are sure to help and ask them to help you.

    Perhaps, but at the risk of passing up a fashionable tin foil hat, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

    And ACORN never committed fraud, some of their employees did. That distinction didn't matter to the RW.
