..lets hope the MSM runs with this right up to voting day.

Cast your minds back.....

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">An official criminal probe has been launched into the <span style='font-size: 14pt'>GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal</span> we first reported just over one week ago. The investigation, confirmed by Reuters tonight, comes on the heels of an election fraud complaint filed on Friday by the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) after an initial batch of more than 100 apparently fraudulent voter registration applications were discovered in Palm Beach County. The forms had been submitted to the county by the RPOF after being collected by employees of <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Strategic Allied Consulting, a group hired by the party and headed by <u>Mitt Romney's paid political consultant and controversial longtime GOP operative Nathan Sproul</u>.</span>

The announcement of a criminal investigation comes on the day after state officials sent an email, obtained by The BRAD BLOG, informing county election officials to sequester hundreds of potentially fraudulent registration forms which may be needed as "evidence" in court proceedings.

Tonight, Reuters is reporting that officials from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirm that they have "found enough evidence to warrant a full-blown investigation" of Strategic Allied Consulting.

Since the emergence of the initial batch of irregular GOP voter registrations early last week, similarly fraudulent forms have reportedly discovered in some 12 Florida counties. </div></div>

When this all came out, the RNC fired Strategic Allied Consulting and disowned them. I remember one poster here saying something like 'they did the right thing. When the RNC knew there was fraud, they said so and fired the company'.

If only that were so.

Connect the dots yourself.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Well, well, well. Karl Rove's American Crossroads and "fired" voter registration fraudster Nathan Sproul seem to share far, far more than a party affiliation.</span>

Via Salon, the beginning of the trail:

So what does Sproul have to do with Karl Rove? According to a report by Brad Friedman that appeared in Salon and on his own site, BradBlog, American Crossroads has paid at least $750,000 for Sproul’s services. On October 9, Representative Gonzalez’s letter to Rove inquired about American Crossroads’ relationship to Sproul and his companies in the past and whether Crossroads has ongoing ties with Sproul during the current election cycle. Among other questions, Gonzalez asked Rove what services Sproul provided for American Crossroads, why he was hired, why Rove would associate with someone who had a reputation for participating in voter fraud, whether Crossroads has severed its relationship with Sproul, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>and whether it has worked with him under other names.</span> Gonzalez urged Rove to respond by October 23.

Brad Friedman picks it up from there with even more juicy details:

It now appears that <span style='font-size: 23pt'>Strategic Allied Consulting has the <u>same corporate mailing address in Virginia as Rove's American Crossroads PAC.</u> Imagine that...</span>

Late last week, the state of Florida released the original election fraud complaint [PDF] filed against Strategic last month. That complaint eventually led to the full-blown criminal investigation by the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement said to now be underway.

As sharp-eyed BRAD BLOG commenter "Citizen92" noticed in those newly released documents, the "Key takeaway from this is that <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Strategic Allied Consulting has a business address of 45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100, Warrenton, VA."</span>

"Who else has a business address at 45 North Hill Drive?," Citizen92 asked rhetorically, "American Crossroads, Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie's 527 group."

Indeed our good Citizen92 is correct, according to the IRS 527 filing for American Crossroads [PDF], the mailing address for Rove's outfit is also 45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100, in Warrenton, VA.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Gosh, who would have imagined such a thing? That Karl Rove and Nathan Sproul might share the same business address? Surely Rove wouldn't have his hands in something that shady, would he?</span>

<u>That was sarcasm, in case it failed to shine through.</u> You should really read Brad's full post, because it leads back to the 2000 Florida recount debacle, the Koch brothers, and more. It's a little snapshot of corrupt Republican politics in one neat little package. </div></div>

read the whole thing. (http://crooksandliars.com/karoli/nathan-sproul-and-karl-rove-share-more-part)






"Fired" consultant Nathan Sproul appears to be operating on behalf of Republicans in at least 10 states".

link (http://www.salon.com/2012/10/12/operative_linked_to_voter_registration_fraud_still _working_for_gop/)

Just to recap.

For 12 or more years, Karl Rove has mounted his 'Voter Fraud' scam. Bush even fired top DAs who refused to take part in this scam.
In the last 4 years, rep controlled states have been trying to suppress the vote by requiring unnecessary photo ID and restricting early voting etc.
So the RNC hires this guy to do voter registration for them.

G.O.P. Operative Long Trailed by Allegations of Voter Fraud (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/05/us/politics/nathan-sproul-a-republican-operative-long-trailed-by-voter-fraud-claims.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0)

So of course, when this guy gets caught on voter fraud, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>AGAIN,</span>, they act all surprised and say 'we don't want anything to do with this wicked practice!!!!!!'.

Problem is, they are STILL employing his company's who are doing the same thing in other states!

The icing on the cake.

Karl Rove and Strategic Allied Consulting are one and the same.

This is huge. Karl finally connected to the voter fraud he so loves. How ironic.

The only reason I can think of for the RW conviction that voter fraud is rampant is because THEY are the ones that are doing it! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Sproul is a cheat and a fraud. That's why they keep on hiring him.

UTTER BS.

So if one of the teachers at your kids school had twice been fired for being 'too friendly' with the kids in other States,[ nothing proved of course!] you would have no problem with that because as yet, he hasn't been caught doing anything wrong at your kids school?

No chance. You would be doing somersaults.

Sproul is a cheat. They knew it when they hired him and everyone knows it. They still employ him and Karl Rove, Prince of Darkness is behind it all. Its what he does!

To deny that is to deny the facts...and we all know that's your speciality!

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> TMP investigates Voter Fraud
By Josh Marshall, talkingpointsmemo -- 04.12.07

Since President Bush came into office, the Justice Department has made 'voter fraud' prosecutions <u>a high priority.</u> Yet, <u>not for lack of effort,</u> <span style='font-size: 20pt'>they've barely been able to find any examples of it.</span> The grand effort has boiled down to a program to send a few handfuls of folks -- mainly black -- to jail for what are in almost every case notional or unintentional voting infractions.
[...]

But the government actually lost a stunningly high percentage of even those cases because they were so weak.

Cynthia C. Alicea, 25, was indicted for double-voting. The evidence was that election officials found she'd registered to vote twice. She was acquited because it turned out election officials told her to fill out another card because the first one had been filled out wrong. Pretty lurid stuff. There was no evidence she'd ever voted twice. The other three people indicted in Milwaukee for double voting were acquited too.

Out of the tiny number of bona fide voter fraud cases, the great majority fall into two categories. The first are cases where workers hired in voter registration drives appear to sign up non-existent people to get paid more money from the sponsors of the drive. The actual examples of this are exceedingly rare. But since the people don't exist, no one ever shows up to vote in their name.

The second are felons or parolees who either register to vote or actually vote, in most cases not knowing they're not eligible to vote.
[...]

<span style='font-size: 23pt'>Republican party officials and elected officials use bogus claims of vote fraud to do three things:

1) to stymie voter registration drives and get-out-the-vote efforts in poor and minority neighborhoods,

2) purge voter rolls of legitimate voters and

3) institute voter ID laws aimed at making it harder for low-income and minority voters to vote.</span>

<span style="color: #990000">Guess What -- THEY'RE BACK! </span>

The GOP Forces battling forth to Conquer that Phantom of 'Voter Fraud' coming to a "good neighborhood" near you ... look out!


<span style='font-size: 20pt'>Over in Kasich's Kingdom they just managed to push through a new Photo ID Law for Voters, that stands to block 890,000 Ohioans from voting!

THAT is 7.5 times MORE people than was the difference in the 2004 Presidential Election, where George Bush edged out John Kerry, in Ohio -- by only 118,601 Votes. </span> </div></div>

But you have no problem with that, do you?
