Voter-fraud probe in Virginia widens to include GOP-linked firm

(Continued)

Rob Johnson, the manager of a local discount goods store, said he had seen a man toss a bag into the store’s cardboard recycling bin and then had found that the bag contained registration forms. Johnson said in an interview that he called authorities the next day when he spotted the man’s car, with Pennsylvania plates, parked at the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Republican Party headquarters.

The commonwealth’s attorney had planned to question Small about his employers and training before a special multi-jurisdiction grand jury based in Staunton, Va., according to the two people familiar with the probe. But state officials changed course when they realized that Virginia law would give Small immunity from election-law charges if he were questioned about his superiors.

His first formal court date, largely a formality to determine whether he understands his rights to counsel, is now scheduled for Monday.
