The North Carolina board of elections is determining whether a GOP-allied firm, Strategic Allied Consulting, submitted fraudulent voter registration forms in the state, following reports the group submitted 106 “questionable” forms in Florida. In the midst of Republican efforts to uncover extremely rare in-person voter fraud, the likeliest source comes from their own firm. North Carolina officials are contacting local boards of elections to determine if wider investigation is necessary. The Republican National Committee has paid Strategic Allied $3.1 million to run voter registration drives in multiple swing states, but the ongoing criminal investigation has caused the RNC and state Republican parties to cut all ties.
