Officials received a complaint from the Florida Division of Elections on Friday after suspcious voter registration forms surfaced in Palm Beach County.
The Republican National committee and Republican party of Florida severed relations with Strategic Allied when allegation arose last week while 10 suspicious registration forms have been found, according to the AP. The company received $1.3 million for the work in Florida. Several other Republicans had hired the company in other battleground states.

"It is very possible that here and there, sporadically, a couple of employees didn't follow the rules," David Lebiowitz told the AP. "It's a massive operation and some people in any massive operation are not going to follow the rules."
Vicki Davis, president of the Florida State Assn, of Supervisors of Elections, said Friday that she had heard from elections officials in several other counties who also discovered possibly fraudulent forms, said the LA Times.
Davis told the LA Times:
“There might be an occasional one, but I don’t think we’ve ever had this number of counties that have had this number of cases all at the same time,” she said.
