After reading about the Virginia election fraud arrest, a story broken by Ben Tribbett, we traveled to Harrisonburg, VA to find the man who witnessed voter registration forms being discarded in a dumpster. This interview was recorded on Election Day, 2012.
If not for the actions taken by small business owner Rob Johnson, including an inspiring act of civic courage in which he tracked down the perpetrator himself, 8 people would have not been able to vote in the historic 2012 election. Also, Mr. Johnson may have exposed a much wider election fraud conspiracy that goes all the way to the top of the Republican power matrix, including super-PAC guru Karl Rove.
The Rockingham County Sheriff's Department arrested Colin Small, a Republican Party operative, based on Mr. Johnson's eye witness account, and his decision to go above and beyond the call, and find out where Mr. Small worked.
Eric Byler, who filmed the interview with Annabel Park for Story of America, said, "Rob Johnson rescued the voter registration forms of 8 fellow citizens, and possibly protected the rights of thousands more. He deserves a medal."
