CRIMINAL PROBE OPENED IN FLORIDA INTO ROMNEY-TIED FIRM AT CENTER OF GOP VOTER REGISTRATION FRAUD SCANDAL
State law enforcement agency says they have 'found enough evidence to warrant a full-blown investigation'
Dept. of State advises election officials to sequester fraudulent registrations which 'may become evidence used in court'...

An official criminal probe has been launched into the GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal 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 Strategic Allied Consulting, a group hired by the party and headed by Mitt Romney's paid political consultant and controversial longtime GOP operative Nathan Sproul.

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…

1. Of Course..

There'll be no questions in the debates like there were re: Rev Wright/Ayers/Acorn.

13. For once I agree completely with the Republicans.

After a thorough investigation to get to the very top, prosecute the scum to the fullest extent of the law.

They still have the guillotine in Florida, don't they?

9. There must be a God. This is such sweet poetic justice vis-a-vis the ACORN debacle.

I used to work doing voter reg. for Acorn in Portlandia. They were a true blue
grass-roots, no bull-shit class act, that kicked ass and took names.. and could
show up thousands strong on short notice as needed. Also organized citizens
uprisings within neighborhoods to demand adequate amenities for under-served
areas of the city.

Their demise was a HUGE loss for progressives and poor people everywhere.

So it's payback time for the ReThuglicans and I'm loving it.

The fact that the GOP (and possibly Romney himself) are connected with voter fraud needs to be exposed.

Get Americans to revolt against the theft and anti-democratic behavior of the Republicans.
