Republican GOP Shocked, Shocked To Find Voter Suppression in VA
At the Daily News-Record, behind paywall.
Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, said party leaders were “alarmed by [the] allegations.”
“The actions taken by this individual are a direct contradiction of both his training and explicit instructions given to him,” Mullins said in a statement.
“The Republican Party of Virginia will not tolerate any action by any person that could threaten the integrity of our electoral process.”
Mullins said Small was fired immediately after the allegations surfaced.
Tracy Evans, chairman of the Harrisonburg Republican Party, said he was “shocked and saddened” that voter forms would be tossed out in the area.
Evans said the blame for the incident falls on Pinpoint and Small, not the state or local GOP.
“I’ve never met the guy. Certainly, I didn’t have authority over him or control of him. … It’s a failure on the part of the this individual to follow the rules and procedures he was supposed to follow, and it’s a failure on the company that RPV hired to do all the things they’re supposed to do,” he said.I mean, Republicans would never be involved in voter suppression, right?
