Virginia’s Case of Thrown Away Voter Forms : Republican Arrested for Romney Led Voter Suppression

On Thursday night, a 31-year old Pennsylvania resident named Colin Small was arrested for destroying voter registration forms in Rockingham County, Virginia.
Smalls was employed by Pinpoint, a company that was hired to register voters for the Republican Party of Virginia.
The story is similar to that of Strategic Allied Consulting (SAC), a group that was hired in major battleground states across the country, including Virginia, to do the registration job.

SAC, owned by Republican Nathan Sproul, was fired after suspicious registration forms submitted by SAC popped up in 10 Florida counties. Sproul’s previous companies have been accused of destroying Democratic registration forms in prior elections.

Sproul’s registration companies were also hired in Ohio, another key battleground state that has seen its fair share of voter suppression. Like Florida, Ohio has a history of voting problems.
Ohio voters suffered through long lines on Election Day in 2004 and when former Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell ran state elections, he was involved in at least a dozen voting-related lawsuits and accused of restricting the number of polling booths in Democratic-leaning districts.
