TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Florida has found that employees of a company once aligned with the Republican Party of Florida engaged in voter registration fraud.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced on Tuesday that two former employees of Strategic Allied Consulting turned in 27 fake voter registration forms. The two employees who worked in northeast Florida have been placed on probation since they did not have a prior criminal history.

The company was hired by Republicans to do voter registration drives in Florida and other states. But last fall the state party fired the company and took the additional step of filing an election fraud complaint against the company with state officials.

This does not end the investigation into Strategic Allied. There are four other cases still under investigation.
