Update: Goode's Response to Campaign Investigation

Posted:

Update 5 p.m.:

Virgil Goode's Presidential campaign has hit a speed bump, but the presidential candidate says the campaign is still hard at work.

The board voted unanimously Monday to ask the Attorney General to investigate "suspected petition fraud."

The forms in question were to get Goode on the ballot here in Virginia.

Goode says he has no knowledge of the details.

"We're continuing to get signatures in every district we can, and we are going to keep going until we get the 10,000 that's needed," he said.

The State Board of Elections could not comment too much on the possible probe but did say it's in the attorney general's hands now

------------

The Virginia Board of Elections is seeking an investigation into the campaign of Presidential Candidate and Rocky Mount native Virgil Goode.

The board voted unanimously to ask Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to investigate suspected petition fraud on forms the Constitution Party submitted in an attempt to get Goode on the ballot.

The former Fifth District Congressman is trying to get enough signatures to get on the ballot in Virginia. He is already on the ballot in more than a dozen other states.

We called the Goode campaign Tuesday morning about this issue, but they would not comment.
