Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is asking the Virginia attorney general to investigate recent allegations of voter fraud in the state after voter registration forms were sent to dead people and animals. Attorneys representing Romney contacted Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's insisting that multiple state laws were broken when the D.C.-based Voter Participation Center mailed voter registration forms to ineligible voters, a spokesman for Cuccinelli said. The center said it mailed more than 200,000 voter registration forms in June. But the Virginia Board of Elections said many of those went to people not eligible to vote, including "dead relatives, minor children, non-citizen relatives, already registered voters, convicted felons, and cats and dogs," Romney's campaign alleged in a letter sent to Cuccinelli's office Tuesday. - Steve Contorno
