article imageReps to investigate robo-call election fraud in Washington State

Seattle - The Republican Party is to investigate claims of election fraud in the Washington State primary. Voters received robo-calls prior to the vote, claiming the caucuses had been delayed by a week.
Although voter turnout was at a record level for the Washington State primary, it was still lower than expected. The Seattle Times reported the estimated participation of 50,000 people represented only 1.6 percent of the state's registered voters. With turnout expected to have been 60,000, questions are being raised if the robo-calls which voters received telling them the caucuses had been delayed for a week, were to blame.
According to the Miami Herald, King County Republican Party warned Saturday morning of robo-calls to voters falsely claiming that the caucuses had been delayed a week. The calls bore the identification number of the King County Republican Party headquarters, but party officials say the calls did not originate from their headquarters.
The final results for the Washington State Primary as cited by Outcome was Romney winning with 37.6 percent of the vote, Paul second with 24.8 percent ,followed closely by Santorum with 23.8 percent. Gingrich limped into fourth place with just 10.3 percent of the vote.
Until the Republican Party completes its investigation into the robo-calls one can only speculate which candidate was the intended subject of sabotage.
