dem registrations trashed by GOP-funded group

See this Las Vegas, Nevada news story, Voter Registrations Possibly Trashed, but there's no "possibly" about it:

"Two former workers say they personally witnessed company supervisors rip up and trash registration forms signed by Democrats.

'We caught her taking Democrats out of my pile, handed them to her assistant and he ripped them up right in front of us. I grabbed some of them out of the garbage and she tells her assisatnt to get those from me,' said Eric Russell, former Voters Outreach employee.

Eric Russell managed to retrieve a pile of shredded paperwork including signed voter registration forms, all from Democrats. We took them to the Clark County Election Department and confirmed that they had not, in fact, been filed with the county as required by law."

"The company has been largely, if not entirely funded, by the Republican National Committee. Similar complaints have been received in Reno where the registrar has asked the FBI to investigate."
They couldn't possibly expect to get away with this, although daylight was more likely to come after the election. In which case, based on past experience, its considered a fait accompli and all remedies are aimed at future elections (and end up being ignored anyway).
