State Democrats Trying to Stop Virginia from Purging Thousands from State Voter Rolls

Posted: Updated:

CHESTERFIELD - Larry Haake is the Chesterfield County Registrar. Two weeks ago, he said that registrars all across the state had received a list of voters that the State Board of Elections says should not be able to vote in Virginia.

He has said he will not remove the voters before the November election.

Now the Democratic Party of Virginia is suing the State Board of Elections to make sure all registrars do the same.

They didn't stop there; they also named Republican candidate for Governor Ken Cuccinelli as a defendant. 

The State Board of Elections says Ken Cuccinelli is not an election official. Their website, which lists 3 board members - Charlie Judd, Kimberly Bowers and Don Palmer.

The Office of the Attorney General sent a statement saying "suing the Attorney General is a shameless stunt to make it appear as if he has done something wrong, as they know he is clearly not an appropriate party to the lawsuit. It's also an outright lie to say the AG was involved in the ‘purge.'"
