It's not as if the RNC didn't have plenty of warning things could go wrong. Strategic Allied Consulting is headed by an Arizona GOP operative whose workers have previously been accused of turning in fraudulent registration forms. In 2004, the employees of the firm were also accused of discarding voter registration forms the collected from Democrats. Police investigated that case, but no charges were filed, and the company denies that it condones fraud. Nonetheless, now that the GOP is on the defensive, Democrats could well demand that election officials in the other four other states where Strategic Allied Consulted operated examine thousands of forms submitted there for evidence of fraud as well.
