Republican Hired Young Political Majors Head Arrested
Mark Jacoby, the owner of the firm Young Political Majors, hired by the California Republican Party to register voters, was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of voter registration fraud.
In an article from the Latimes.com:
State and local investigators allege that Mark Jacoby fraudulently registered himself to vote at a childhood California address where he no longer lives so he would appear to meet the legal requirement that all signature gatherers be eligible to vote in California. His firm, Young Political Majors, or YPM, collects petition signatures and registers voters in California and other states.
The firm, Young Political Majors, was recently implicated by voters for deceiving them into registering as Republicans as the voters tried to sign what they believed were petitions seeking to toughen penalities for child molesters.
The organization was been the focus of investigation and has been accused of the same activity in 2004.
