Republican Voter Registration Fraud

  From the BradBlog comes the latest on the Republican voter registration fraud that has swept through 11 Florida counties thus far, and 6 additional states. This is some serious shit people.

Another matter we've been looking at, is the claim that this scandal is contained to only five battleground states --- Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada and Colorado --- where Strategic Allied Consulting is known to have been operating before being fired. There is evidence, however, that they and/or other Sproul companies, may still be operating in other states, such as California and Oregon, and that the specific type of rather offensive registration work they were doing --- lying to potential registrants and only offering Romney supporters the opportunity to register to vote --- is not necessarily their own strategy, but that of the entire Republican National Committee and the Romney campaign.

And then there's the matter of the hypocrisy of how Republicans and their media outlets, such as Fox "News" and the rest of the Rightwing media are now trying to pretend that this entire matter isn't happening at all. Yes, the very same outlets who all went wall-to-wall in 2008, and beyond, in claiming (inaccurately) that ACORN was doing what this GOP group appears to actually have done, are now going out of their way to ignore the scandal entirely.


"What first appeared to be an isolated problem in one Florida county has now spread statewide," AP's Gary Fineout reported on Saturday. Of course, it only appeared to them and the RNC "to be an isolated problem."

In any event, AP is now reporting that the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), --- whose largest expenditure this election cycle, $1.3 million, was on Strategic Allied Consulting --- filed an election fraud complaint against the company on Friday. It's now in the hands of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

   Florida has an Republican controlled Legislature, a governor who should be in a federal penitentiary, and mostly Republican election supervisors. Does 2000 ring a bell with you?
