RNLA Received Influx Of Money Ahead of 2010 Elections


DeVos is listed as a philanthropist in the employ of the RDV Corporation in Grand Rapids, MI, called "the management firm for the family of Mr. Richard M. DeVos and provides investment management, estate planning, tax and personal services, and foundation administration to the DeVos family"). His family has been longtime supporters of conservative causes.

Singer, the president of Elliott Associates, LP, is a close friend of Rudy Giuliani who has given millions of dollars to Republican organizations.

The RNLA -- a group which has presented voter fraud as a major threat to the outcome of elections despite the lack of evidence that such crimes are widespread -- has started an "unprecedented" election education effort which "aid the recruitment of volunteer lawyers to assist the more than twenty governorships, ten U.S. Senate seats and seventy U.S. House seats that are up for grabs in November," according to a message from President Charles Bell, Jr.

Election experts had said for years that claims of voter fraud are exaggerated, and that stringent voter ID requirements that are often the byproduct of such worries can lead to a decreased turnout from minority voters.

Messages left for representatives of DeVos and Singer were not immediately returned.
