State GOP sues over suspect voter registrations

Clout St:
The Illinois Republican Party on Tuesday sued the Lake County clerk to force a closer examination of up to 5,000 voter registrations suspected of being fraudulent, a move that could delay the ballot count in the northern suburbs.

The lawsuit asks that the clerk’s office be required to separate the suspect registrations so they can be authenticated before they are added to official totals, a process that could take up to two weeks, officials estimated.

"We want to ensure that bad votes don’t get counted," GOP attorney John Fogarty said.

The lawsuit also requests special scrutiny of all registrations submitted by a Chicago-based group called Citizen Action Illinois. The suit claims the group delivered thousands of "fraudulent, incomplete or illegitimate" voter applications to the clerk’s office in Waukegan.
Some bad habits die hard!
