Nevada television station KOLO obtained cell phone video of a man, who claimed he worked for the Republican Party, revealing that he was paid by the number of voters he registers, but only if they were not Democrats.
"Could you do me a favor?" the man asked a potential voter. "Mark non-partisan on there. I'll get credit for it. I don't get credit for Democrats."
"I am a Democrat," he added. "So I still do Democrats if I have to, but I'm working for the Republican Party. I have to get two an hour and I don't get credit for Democrats."
According to the Nevada Revised Statutes, "It is unlawful for a person to provide compensation for registering voters that is based upon: (a) The total number of voters a person registers; or (b) The total number of voters a person registers in a particular political party."
