JaxBeachBuzz's curator insight, September 26, 2013 7:57 PM

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two people have been charged with filling out fraudulent voter registration cards at two local universities.

A two-year Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation found that two employees of Strategic Allied Consulting, Rebekah Paul and Christian Price, were filling out fake forms at the University of North Florida and Jacksonville University.

 

"They would ask you if you want to vote and if you're registered, and they would always hound you," said UNF Junior John Solar.

Solar saw plenty of people on campus trying to sign people up to vote.

But he never thought they were committing fraud on his campus.

"Florida is an important electoral state, but I don't know how much of a difference it made falsifying a few people to vote," he said.  

Over a two-year long investigation, FDLE found Paul and Price turned in 29 fake forms.

 

There are still four open investigations into voter fraud in Florida.

UNF Professor Dr. Michael Binder said that's pretty much standard operating procedure in politics.

 

"If you talk to people off record in political campaigns, they will tell you, yes, there are people on our side who aren't doing things on the up and up, yes there are people on their side that aren't doing things above board. Most of that stuff washes out in the end," said Binder.

An attorney for Strategic Allied Consulting said out of 20,000 employees working in Florida, only 6 are under investigation, and they were immediately terminated.

 

"It's worth taking a step back and looking at the big picture. How many hundreds of millions of votes have been cast over the last couple of elections cycles? And we're staring at a handful of arrests over a few states," said Binder.

 

Still, Binder said it's important to keep integrity in the process, and Solar said he'll keep his eye out.

 

"They looked like regular students. They didn't look like people who weren't supposed to be here," said Solar.

Initially charged with third-degree felonies, Paul and Price were given probation because they did not have criminal records.
