FDLE investigating company for voter registration fraud
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is conducting a voter fraud investigation into the company the state Republican Party hired to register voters.
FDLE confirmed Wednesday that it began investigating Strategic Allied Consulting after receiving a complaint from the Florida Division of Elections about suspicious forms submitted in several counties. The agency said it wouldn't comment further until the investigation is complete.
The Republican Party of Florida fired the company after reports that suspicious forms were being turned in. The party has paid Strategic Allied Consulting $1.3 million.
State parties in North Carolina and Virginia have also fired the company, which was hired by Republicans in several battleground states to register voters.
