Va. congressmen seek probe of trashed voter registration forms

Washington (CNN) – The Justice Department on Thursday was reviewing a request from Virginia Democratic lawmakers to launch an inquiry into a firm that hired a worker who allegedly destroyed voter registration applications.

Congressmen Jim Moran, Bobby Scott and Gerry Connolly on Wednesday asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate a Republican-hired firm, Pinpoint, amid allegations of voter fraud.

    More voting dishonesty from Republicans? Is anybody left in the Republican Party who still cares about honorable behavior and honesty? Does every Republican have a "swift boat" mentality?

    Both Romney and Lyin' Ryan are pathological liars – as shown by the fact checkers every time they speak. Romney constantly changes his position on really critical issues – a man with no actual core values. Are any Republicans out there honest? Seriously – does Christianity mean anything to Republicans? They always claim to be the "Political Party of God" but then they behave like the Devil is calling the shots. Is he?

    This guy and the firm that hired him should have the book thrown at them. At taste of jail is in order for these crimes – nothing less.

    This is what the Republican Party does. How else can they win when they only represent the interests of 10% of the population?
