Actual voter registration fraud

You'll be shocked to learn, in order to prove that it exists, Republicans are commiting voter fraud themselves.
The Republican Party of Florida is dumping a firm it paid more than $1.3 million to register new voters, after Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher flagged 106 “questionable” registration applications turned in by the contractor this month. Bucher asked the state attorney’s office to review the applications “in an abundance of caution” because she said her staff had questions about similar-looking signatures, missing information and wrong addresses on the forms. [...]

“When we learned today about the instances of potential voter registration fraud that occurred in Palm Beach County, we immediately informed the Republican National Committee that we were terminating the contract with the voter registration vendor we hired at their request because there is no place for voter registration fraud in Florida,” said RPOF Executive Director Mike Grissom late Tuesday.
Thinking back on the many instances of resistance to voter suppression I've seen in the last few months from the local election officials in that state, this all gives me some hope it won't be so easy for the GOPers to steal Florida this year.
