A major element of the Republican National Committee's overall attempt to game the 2012 elections by trying to affect who gets to vote and who does not, has just been stopped dead in its tracks. Along with it, a criminal election fraud complaint...

You are so right Tom. And these are the same people who complained about ACORN!

Thanks Carrie for the link to The National Memo article by Brad Friedman. I hope the Complaint is followed up on and a probe launched. There is no way the RNC can claim innocence in this scandal. Instead of a criminal probe, maybe the entire GOP should be subjected to an anal probe to see if that's where their brains are. Read and noted.

I find it odd that the GOP gave Sproule a $3 million contract after he had already been charged with voter suppression at another time. He had actually ripped up registration forms of democrat voters. So much for zero tolerance policy.

This is nothing more than left wing MSM hype. Obama is going to win Virginia and Florida without having to resort to dirty politics. Remember Obama's ACORN? Now, there's a topic you can sink your teeth in.

typo: "sink your teeth into."

No one is busted. No one will be busted. This is MSM hype.

The criminal GOPers have been lying and cheating the American public for years. No surprises here. Hoping this time they'll be fined, charged, convicted and sent to prison. They're all pathetic hypocrits.

ACORN was not Obama's. It had been doing voter registration for many years. A few people doing the registering were found to be dishonest. No one at top of the ACORN organization had any part in it. Nathan Sproule, owner of Strategic Allied Consulting on the other hand, has been dodging authorities for years because of voter fraud allegations.

"The firm is not only tied to the FL GOP, but also to the Mitt Romney Campaign, which hired Sproul as a political consultant late last year, despite years of fraud allegations against his organizations in multiple states.

Moreover, the firm is also reportedly operating similar voter registration operations on behalf of the Republican Party, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, in a number of key battleground states this year, including North Carolina, Virginia and Colorado. Strategic Allied has recently taken steps to hide their ownership by Sproul's notorious firm, Sproul & Associates.

Palm Beach County Supervisor of Election Susan Bucher confirmed to The BRAD BLOG late this evening that she turned over 106 suspicious voter registration applications to the Florida State Attorney during a meeting yesterday afternoon in Palm Beach, after the "questionable" applications were submitted to her office by a worker for Strategic Allied.

The forms were said to all have similar signatures, changed addresses and party affiliations, and other defects which appear to have all been done by the same hand.

The case emerging in Florida tonight mirrors a similar incident reported earlier this year when more than a thousand fraudulent voter registration forms were discovered to have been turned in to the Sacramento County, CA Registrar of Voters by a group hired by that state's Republican Party.

But that's not the only similar case, as a massive GOP voter registration scheme, which appears to involve the upper-echelons of the national party, begins to emerge..."

Let's hope that this time they are held criminally accountable, as they should be.

Yes, I, too, am tired of the GOP getting away with murder. They are there to accuse others of what they, themselves are doing. The media then focuses on what the GOP points out against Dems, and ignores the real story. This has long disgusted me. It's way past time for the tables to turn. I believe the reason it's been this way for so long is that Big Money Corporations are running the show, along with banksters and a complicit media. The system is badly broken, and no longer works in favor of "we the people." That's why I sign petitions, send letters and share all I can to enlist the aid of others to counter the disgusting GOP talking points, rhetoric, and out-and-out lies.
