    DA/Secretary of State on CA. voter registration probe

    DA to team with Secretary of State on voter registration probe

    MINDY SCHAUER, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

    The Orange County District Attorney’s office said Wednesday that it plans to team with the Secretary of State’s office to investigate voter registration fraud uncovered by the Orange County Register.

    Assistant District Attorney Michael Lubinski who oversees the special prosecutions unit said the DA’s office would be reaching out to the Secretary of State’s office this week to offer its help. Already, representatives of the Republican Party of Orange County and the Democratic Foundation of Orange County have written the DA requesting an investigation into the Register’s findings of widespread voter registration fraud in central Orange County.

    A Register investigation published Friday online and in Sunday’s newspaper exposed how signature gatherers circulating petitions had tricked young Orange County voters into registering to vote as Republicans. Since mid-March, at least 99 written complaints have been submitted to state elections officials by Orange County residents who say they were registered to vote Republican without their consent.

    An independent Register investigation found an additional 74 voters who say they were tricked or coerced into registering to vote as Republican by signature gatherers who initially asked them to sign petitions to legalize marijuana, fight cancer or clean up beaches.

    All of the voters identified by the Register are listed as under 28 years old and live in the 34th State Senate District, where the Republicans hope to oust incumbent Democrat Lou Correa in the fall. Unlike the Democrats, the California Republican Party has a policy of paying signature gatherers who send them new GOP voter registration cards and the Republicans are offering as much as $8 for each new GOP registration in that district.

    Many believe this $8 bounty creates an incentive for signature gatherers to commit fraud.

    Lubinski said the Secretary of State has the primary jurisdiction over such cases, but noted the office typically has limited investigative resources. Four years ago, when a similar rash voter registration fraud was uncovered in Orange County, the Secretary of State and the District Attorney’s office worked together to bring charges against 12 signature gatherers.
