  •  Huh? (none)
    I'm not sure what is gained by this. So, is it that they registered a bunch of people as Republicans who otherwise might not have? I don't get it.
    •  Possible scenarios (none)
      1. They are getting paid, like Voters Outreach of America workers, based on how many Republican registrations they produce. But, instead of shredding Democrat registrations, they direct that forms not be fully filled out and later check off Republican before submitting them. Could just be individuals taking advantage of this to make money.

      2. If you are registered Republican, then you may not be able to vote in later Democrat primaries. (Not sure what the law in Oregon is ATM).

      3. Are these fraudulent registrations because they are to be filled in later by petitioners or are not notarized? If so, then we may have people who think they are registered, and find out at the polls that they are not.

      Basically I'm just throwing the story out there because it's so twisted and I'm curious as to what the most serious implications are.
