Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The U.S. State Department confirmed rumors Friday that it had revoked visas for some Haitian officials and supporters of President Preval, but declined to elaborate because visa records are confidential by law.
 
A senior U.S. official, however, told ABC News that visas were revoked for nine -- mostly low-level -- members of Preval’s party citing their alleged role in voter fraud in last November’s election.
