ACORN, Nathan Sproul, real election fraud -- and the right's eerie silence

. . .

Now that “suspicious and possibly fraudulent voter registration forms” turned in by the Republican Party and Sproul have been found in “at least 11 counties” in Florida, as reported by the Los Angeles Times on Saturday, their “one bad apple” talking point has fallen to pieces.

Similarly laughable is the RNC’s claim that once the fraudulent registrations emerged they acted “boldly” or that they have a “zero tolerance policy” for such things. Their own admissions in this matter, as well as Sproul’s, highlight how absurd those positions are. But more on that below.

Another matter worth 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. There is evidence, however, that SAC 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 hypocrisy of Republicans and their media outlets, such as Fox News and the rest of the right-wing media, now trying to pretend that this entire matter isn’t happening at all. Yes, the very same outlets that 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 this scandal.

3. Add to that the conflict of interest on the voting machines

or scanners...can't remember which...and you have quite a nice little packet of fraudulent practices.

Is the DOJ looking into both? Will that look like the Dems are doing it for political purposes? Kind of in a corner, eh?

I hope they are exposed to the public...and, quickly.

5. I'm surprised they're not claiming it's payback for those two Panthers in Philly

The ones who were apparently solely responsible for Obama's victory in 2008. Just as "dead voters in Chicago in 1960" is their justification for trying to steal every election from now until the end of time.

8. Recent Fraud: Predictable Reflective Behavior?

Thanks for your post..

How could we not suspect national involvement when we look at Sproul’s: long RNC history inspite of prior alleged crimes related to voter’s fraud and Democratic voter disenfranchisement, firm name change, current manipulation of investigative process, and the complete list is yet to be revealed, if ever..


Earlier Prediction made in book "Time to Act America: A Potential Fall from Democracy", (2012, Aug., p. 117) by #Voters4Voters:

Chapter 12 “…as we are rightfully distracted with hideous voter purging, the very voter law issues the far right-wing are currently defending and accusing voters of, may be the actual voting fraud they intend to commit this election cycle. It’s known that lying, cheating and theft are synonymous, all of which have seemed to become the norm in certain political arenas…”
