The Washington Post editorial board on Friday condemned Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) for allowing his campaign staff to collect signatures for an opponent, independent candidate Shaun Brown, in order to split Democratic candidate Elaine Luria’s vote. A judge ruled this week that Brown be kicked off the ballot because of dozens of fraudulent signatures collected by Taylor’s staff. Taylor claims he was unaware of any criminal violations.
