Va elections board seeks probe of ballot signatures for Constitution Party’s Virgil Goode ^ | Aug 6 2012 | AP

The Virginia Board of Elections says it is seeking an investigation into ballot signatures involving the campaign of Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode.

The former six-term congressman from Rocky Mount is gathering signatures to appear on the ballot in his home state. He’s already on the ballot in more than a dozen other states.

The Board on Monday voted unanimously to ask Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to investigate “suspected petition fraud” on forms submitted by the Constitution Party in its efforts to gain ballot access for Goode.

I guess this is why these lowlifes were too busy to investigate the District of Corruption “group” that sent VA voter registration cards to dead people, children and pets.

“voted unanimously “
2 Republicans and 1 Democrat on the board.

Must be a real problem. Dems want Goode on the ballot,
but the Dem member voted for it too.

McDonnell trying to knock Goode off Virginia’s ballot at Romney’s behest.

If I had to guess, I’d say they’re upset that Goode used IGPV collectors to gather his signatures. They are probably challenging the method in which the signatures were gathered.

But, you are surely right. They want to keep Goode off the ballot.

What they’ll succeed in doing is making it a huge issue and increasing Goode’s support in the state.

What they want to do is cost Goode a lot of time and money.

Goode’s strategy is obviously to get name recognition by threatening Romney in Virginia and having that become the topic of a national discussion.

If he gets name recognition nationally for this maneuver, it is their own fault, but it also is a step in the right direction for a 3rd conservative party, The Constitution Party.

"Hey, Bob, that's great! Do what you can to keep him off the ballot, OK? - right, like you did for me in the primary! See you in Tampa!"

I’d not known this aspect of it. But, the CP is going nowhere. As a matter of fact we’re making the GOP more conservative with conservative victories. I believe the GOP is our best vehicle for victory in the long run.

It isn’t going to be simple or quick. Nor is it going to be at the hands of one “savior” who brings American back. Instead it will be through consistent and diligent work on our part to change the narrative, win elections and hold office over a generation or more.
