Republican officials are having a major problem in their efforts to "ensure the integrity of the electoral process" by passing restrictive voter ID laws across the country. The problem is this: Their own effort is completely devoid of integrity.
The real electoral fraud being perpetrated in America is the GOP's frantic claim that hordes of ineligible people are voting illegally. It just isn't true. Indeed, despite all of their squawking, they've produced practically no cases of it happening anywhere. ....
... their suppressionist claims might soon be validated by reports of a particularly scandalous outbreak of voter fraud in Colorado, Florida, and Nevada. Curiously, though, Republicans aren't jumping on this one. Perhaps that's because this fraud apparently has been committed by Nathan Sproul, one of their own top political operatives who's already been paid $3 million by the GOP for voter registration work this year in five states. Sproul, the former head of both the Arizona Republican Party and that State's Christian Coalition, is under investigation for – guess what? – tampering with the integrity of the electoral process. ...
Sprouling, new verb
The transitive verb "to sproul" refers to obtaining and then destroying the voter registrations of political opponents.

This usage is particularly apt given the vomit it is associated with

The scope of the problem indicates a conspiracy in the upper-echelons of the Republican Party or Romney campaign.
Another Republican Busted for Election Fraud
Voter fraud is not a problem. Even the highly biased Bush Regime could find virtually no evidence of it, despite an exhaustive five year investigation determined to document voter fraud. Nevertheless, Republicans still use it as a dishonest excuse and do everything else they can to keep legitimate Democratic voters from the polls. On the other hand, evidence of election fraud abounds, because it has become Republican standard operating procedure.
............. I can’t help but wonder how many other Democratic registrations have been been destroyed by Republican criminals. No doubt, some would be voters will show up at the polls and be denied their right to vote, because they were not registered due to the destruction of their registration forms by the Republican Party. This is far more extensive and widespread than meets the eye .........
......evidence emerges to document that it ties in to a still-expanding nationwide GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal that The BRAD BLOG first began reporting in late September .....
