Romneyâ€™s lawyers on Tuesday wrote Virginiaâ€™s Republican attorney general Ken Cuccinelli and State Board of Elections chairman Charlie Judd, a former top state GOP official, seeking a criminal probe of the Voter Participation Center.
Romneyâ€™s request is based on reports that pets, felons, children and corpses received voter registration forms from the group with some information already filled out.
Cuccinelli canâ€™t order a probe without a request from a state agency or official, and SBE hasnâ€™t requested one.
The organization acknowledged occasional errors in mailing lists it buys from vendors, but denies wrongdoing. It says Romneyâ€™s request amounts to partisan voter-suppression tactics.
