Video: NBC29 Story on Trashed VA Voter Registration Forms in Harrisonburg

I’m not sure what to make of this story, which I first saw on NLS this morning, and which has now been picked up by NBC29. As they ask in their story:

Is it a case of election fraud, voter suppression, or something far less sinister?  That’s what Rockingham County investigators are trying to find out, after someone trashed a folder of voter registration forms.

Got me, but meanwhile the story has gone viral, now #2 at Reddit. Fascinating.

P.S. Ryan Nobles tweets: “No arrest expected today in the Harrisonburg Voter Reg disposal controversy. Sheriff tells @NBC29KenSlack they’re still investigating.” Also, NLS notes that the sheriff, Bryan F. Hutcheson, is a Republican…

P.P.S. Check out photos of the George Allen fundraiser for Sheriff Hutcheson. I’ve got more photos in the comments section of this diary.

UPDATE 7:03 pm: According to NLS: “Sources close to the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office are telling me that Strategic Allied Consulting is involved in this.  This is the same group that was in the national news two weeks ago for their “registration” drive in Florida that had forms with made up voters.” Uh oh.
