ballot_box.jpegTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ The Republican Party of Florida is filing an election fraud complaint against a vendor suspected of submitting questionable voter registration forms.

The move comes as counties across Florida are turning over to prosecutors registration forms the vendor collected for the state party.

Election officials in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties on Thursday handed over more than 100 suspect forms to local prosecutors. They did so days after officials in Palm Beach County also alerted prosecutors.

Republicans this week fired the vendor, Strategic Allied Consulting, it had hired to register voters in crucial swing states. The Florida state party has paid the firm more than $1.3 million so far.

The national Republican Party also used the group for work in Nevada, North Carolina, Colorado and Virginia.
