When KnowThyNeighbor.org began collecting petition fraud reports through its website, the last person we expected to be contacted by was an actual petition worker. But that's exactly what happened.
Angela McElroy, 21, revealed to KnowThyNeighbor.org the details of bait-and-switch tactics that are allegedly standard practice for the thirty or more petitioners she worked with and even describes an instance where she witnessed another worker forging names and addresses directly from the wine-in-stores petition to the petition to end gay marriage in order to increase his earnings.
McElroy's former employer, YPM LLC, a signature gathering company run by Mark Jacoby, has partnered in Massachusetts with JSM, Inc., run by Jennifer Breslin. Both companies have been investigated for fraud in other states and appear to be working as subcontractors for Arno Political Consultants.
McElroy reports threats of violence from her former employers and KnowThyNeighbor.org has listened to phone messages that confirm her claims.
KnowThyNeighbor.org has flown Ms. McElroy to Massachusetts from her home in Florida where she had returned and is helping to coordinate a meeting at the Secretary of State's office today. McElroy plans on testifying at the Joint Legislative Committee on Election Laws hearing scheduled for Tuesday.
