Republican Party Paid $3.1 Million To Firm Under Investigation For Voter Registration Fraud

Source: Think Progress

The Republican National Committee is cutting ties to Strategic Allied Consulting, a voter registration firm under investigation for turning in fraudulent voter registration forms in Florida. The RNC hired the firm to do voter registration drives for $3.1 million this year.
The firm’s founder, Nathan Sproul, is a longtime Republican strategist whose reputation was tarred by widespread accusations of voter registration fraud and attempts to suppress Democratic voter turnout. George W. Bush’s campaign reportedly paid Sproul over $8 million for his work in the 2004 election. Sproul, now under new scrutiny, claims he started Strategic Allied Consulting because the RNC wanted to hide his past:
Sproul said he created Strategic Allied Consulting at the RNC’s request because the party wanted to avoid being publicly linked to the past allegations. The firm was set up at a Virginia address, and Sproul does not show up on the corporate paperwork.
“In order to be able to do the job that the state parties were hiring us to do, the asked us to do it with a different company’s name, so as to not be a distraction from the false information put out in the Internet,” Sproul said.

I wonder if the problem that voters in Florida are having could be stemming from this group?

2. The RNC needs a RICO investigation...


... I have said it for a decade, is further proof needed, after reading this and the statement that the RNC asked Sproul to create this front/racket?

6. My PA reps & gov are gonna hear from me about VOTE FRAUD monday AM!!

 

These guys were created at the request of the GOP big wigs. It is almost funny here in PA a law for idea to stop no criminal activity & the guys who passed it have been involved in vote fraud for years if not decades.

7. sadly enough I don't believe shit will come from this

Even though it was a contractor hired by the Republican Party, they are going to let the company take the fall for it and claim they didn't know.
