Former GOP official: “I was told I’d already voted, but I hadn’t”

From my exclusive over at Townhall:
The former Digital Director of the National Republican Congressional Committee tells Townhall he fears he’s been victimized by voter fraud in the key swing state of Virginia. His early morning ordeal played out in the House district of Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA), whose 23-year-old son abruptly resigned from the campaign in late October, after being caught on film conspiring to count illegal votes. When the NRCC alumnus arrived to vote at his polling place in Alexandria this morning, his attempt to cast a ballot was rebuffed by election officials: “I got inside, they set me up, I gave the woman my ID, and I told her my address. She said, ‘it seems you’ve voted absentee.’ Then she realized she’d read the sheet wrong. ‘No, it says here that you’ve already voted,’ she told me. I hadn’t even applied for an absentee ballot, nor did I vote early. As hokey as it sounds, I was excited to vote in person. I had absolutely not voted earlier that day. I arrived four minutes after they opened. Basically, I was told I’d already voted, but I hadn’t.”
The Moran connection is probably a weird coincidence, but the broader episode is troubling. Hopefully this is an isolated incident, and this gentleman’s vote is properly secured and counted.
