Oregon voter (and longtime friend) Heather Hyland e-mailed today with this bit of news:
A group funded by the Republican National Committee is under investigation in Nevada and Oregon for allegedly destroying voter registration cards completed by new voters who registered as democrats.
Oregon blogger The One True b!X's has the story:
UPDATE: Heather Hyland also sent an e-mail to the Oregon Secretary of State's office to inquire about this issue. She received the following response:
We have received complaints and we are conducting a full investigation with the Attorney General's office into the allegations of voter fraud.
Unfortunately, we do not know the extent of the problem. Because this is a criminal investigation, we are not permitted to discuss the details.
Please understand that we take the issues of voter fraud and voter registration very seriously, and we will do everything we can to assure the public that their right to vote is protected.

Oregon Secretary of State
