Investigation Romney camp seeks in Va of voter registration group has not been ordered

RICHMOND, Va. — A state investigation that Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign seeks of a nonprofit group that helps register “under-represented” voters isn’t in the works, at least not yet.

Romney’s lawyers on Tuesday wrote Virginia’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.

Romney’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 can’t order a probe without a request from a state agency or official, and SBE hasn’t requested one.

The organization acknowledged occasional errors in mailing lists it buys from vendors, but denies wrongdoing. It says Romney’s request amounts to partisan voter-suppression tactics.
