Talking Points Memo reports that a 31-year-old Pennsylvania man, Colin Small, employed by Pinpoint, a company hired to register voters on behalf of Republican Party of Virgini,a was arrested by investigators from the Rockingham County Sheriff’s office on Thursday and charged with destroying voter registration forms.
Hutcheson’s office began investigating after the manager at a Tuesday Morning store in Harrisonburg, Va., allegedly spotted a man on Monday afternoon throwing eight voter registration forms into a dumpster behind the shopping center where he works.
A message left for a spokesman at the Virginia Republican Party was
not returned. A man who answered the phone at Pinpoint and only gave his
name as Ryan said he was not allowed to comment. “I really want to stay
out of it,” he said.
Last month the GOP stopped all voter registration efforts in several critical swing states because of continued abuses by the firm it hired to conduct the efforts — a firm whose ethical lapses were so familiar to GOP officials that they advised the firm to change its name before hiring it.
