Elaine Luria’s Statement on Allegations of Petition Signature Forgery by Rep. Scott Taylor’s Staff

August 9, 2018

VIRGINIA BEACH – Today, Elaine Luria released the following statement in response to developing reports that Congressman Scott Taylor’s campaign staffers allegedly forged petition signatures to get another candidate on the ballot:

“These allegations against Congressman Scott Taylor’s campaign staff get more troubling by the hour. I’m glad to see the Commonwealth’s Attorney is taking these allegations seriously in requesting a special prosecutor who will work to protect the integrity of our election process. There is an alarming number of voters coming forward to say their signatures appear to have been forged. Given this information and the pending criminal investigation, it seems proper that the entirety of these petition forms are reviewed thoroughly.”
