Inside Politics: GOP fires vendor over questionable registrations
Question of the Day
Republicans fired a vendor who submitted 106 questionable voter registration forms in Florida’s Palm Beach County.
The Republican Party of Florida and the Republican National Committee on Thursday said they cut ties with Virginia-based Strategic Allied Consulting. The Florida party hired the firm to help turn out voters in the close-fought state that is the linchpin of both President Obama’s and Republican Mitt Romney’s strategies.
An attorney for Strategic Allied Consulting, Fred Petti, says the firm identified one person who submitted the registrations and fired the person. Mr. Petti says the company is cooperating with Florida election officials.

Report: Federal agencies behind in paying taxes
A Treasury Department watchdog office said Thursday that 70 federal agencies owed about $14 million in unpaid taxes at the end of last year.
Federal agencies are exempt from paying federal income taxes, but they are responsible for turning over employment taxes, mainly Social Security and Medicare taxes, that their employees must pay.
The treasury inspector general for tax administration said 40 of these delinquent tax accounts totaling about $2.6 million were still open three years after being identified, and in 80 percent of those cases, the investigations had been suspended. The offending agencies were not identified.
