Nationwide GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal Widens, Criminal Probe Opens in Florida

October 1, 2012 7:23 pm Category: Memo Pad, Politics 60 Comments A+ / A-

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 has now reportedly been filed with law enforcement in the state of Florida against a Republican firm, owned by a paid Mitt Romney consultant, which was hired by the GOP to carry out partisan voter registration operations in at least five battleground states.

Millions of dollars were spent on the aborted effort by the GOP over the last two months — their largest single expenditure in several of the states where the scheme was in full tilt — to seek out Romney supporters only, and sign them up to vote.

The strategy resulted in (or included) fraudulent registration forms collected by the firm and then submitted in Florida by the state GOP with voter addresses, signatures and party affiliations changed. Election officials in the state have told The BRAD BLOG that they fear the scheme could result in the disenfranchisement of a still-unknown number of otherwise legal voters, and they are taking extraordinary measures to try and contain the potential damage as they attempt to work through more than 45,000 new and updated registrations submitted by the GOP and verify their legitimacy.

The fraudulent voter registration forms have so far been discovered in “at least 11″ FL counties at this hour, all submitted by the state Republican Party and collected by the RNC’s top voter registration firm, a shell company formed in June called Strategic Allied Consulting, owned by a notorious GOP operative named Nathan Sproul.

On Thursday night, the RNC finally fired the firm to which they’d paid more than $3 million over the past two months alone, for voter registration work in at least five key battleground states, and “Get Out the Vote” efforts in at least two more.

But despite the efforts by the RNC and Strategic Allied Consulting, run secretly by Romney’s paid political consultant, the 2012 GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal, which The BRAD BLOG initially reported late last Tuesday night as it began to break, is not over yet. Not by a long shot.

It took several days for the story to go national, and for the RNC to eventually take action in firing the company that Sproul says he was specifically asked to create for them, but only after the Republican Party of Florida, and then the North Carolina GOP fired the firm first. The state parties say they had hired the company “at the request” of the RNC. They fired Strategic after allegedly fraudulent and purposely changed voter registration forms turned in by the group emerged in other counties beyond Palm Beach County, FL where the Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher initially discovered and then turned in over 100 “questionable” forms to the State Attorney last Monday.

The story has been moving quickly over the past 24 to 48 hours, even as the RNC and Strategic have been trying, with the initially uncritical help of the Associated Press and others in the media, to downplay the scandal as the work of just “one individual.”

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.

    **In February of this year, AP quoted Sproul and described him as “an Arizona political consultant who is working for Romney’s campaign.”

    Perhaps someone should ask the GOP nominee when, if ever, Sproul stopped working for his campaign, and why it is that his spokesperson now claims that they haven’t used “this vendor…since 2011″.**

    Don’t bother. The man lies and hides his time served working for/running Bain! You honestly thi nk he’ll come clean now–or ever?

    Well now the GOP can actually point to some voter fraud. Too bad it will be sticking to them from now on. The amateurish nature of the Republican Party is in full bloom for all to witness in its dishonesty. If the country falls for this nonsense them it will certainly deserve what follows.

    Now they know how it feels to be taken for a ride by an unscrupulous canvassing company or by some of its employees. Interestingly, is not getting the media attention that ACORN elicited. So much for our “liberal” media…

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/UHE4MJP5FHMFIEAOGEQHETUGDQ Rvn_sgt6768

      They were not taken for a ride as this company had similar problems in prior elections. That problem caused they Republican Party to request this company have a new name for this election. Trying to break the trail of known past legal problems. Unlike Acorn this company is not the one who found the problems and reported/fixed the problems. This company has problems in many of the states they were contracted to do work in. Hope they find an email or some such hard evidence linking the top people in the company to these problems. We do not see the media looking into this problem very hard because there is not the same hatred of a black man as President with mittey.

      • Lmaris

        Exactly. Voter fraud seems to be this GOP company’s business model, duping Democratic voters into believing they’re registered then destroying or otherwise destroying the registrations. ACORN did what the law required: turn in every completed registration form, and pointed out those they felt were specious. The GOP firm has violated laws in several state, and the fact they were bankrolled by the GOP after previous years’ violations came to light, the Republicans should be considered a criminal enterprise.

  • SchoolBoardMember

    In 2004 my daughter was at University of Michigan. I asked her if she was registered to vote. She told me that some people had a table up in the Quad and she registered. Turns out hundreds of Michigan students thought they had registered as Democrats, but on election day found out they were not. So many Republicans believe they have the monopoly on truth and the only reason they ever lose is because millions of illegal votes were cast against them, that they state it was OK to steal Gore’s election and any other disenfranchising they do is just furthering God’s work. No one should be surprised.

    • garygramscom

      Yea, right. Michigan is an open primary state, meaning D’s can vote in a R primary, so your story is meaningless. Add to it your gore rantings, and you being a school board member, sounds like your just a liar…

      • SchoolBoardMember

        I am talking about a voted registration formed signed after school started in the fall that had nothing to do with any primary. Even if the primaries are open, you still check a preference when you register. Apparently all of the people who checked Democrat were tossed in the circular file. As a school board member I spend 10 to 15 hours a week working for my community with no compensation whatsoever. I am in a wonderful school district and we are all proud of our kids and our teachers. Public schools are a great part of America. I guess that is why you knock them. I do not lie and have no need to. I would love to try to make a mensch out of you, but there appears to be so little to work with.

        • garygramscom

          You can’t even keep your own story straight, first she was registered as a republican (and somehow she did not know), then it turns out anyone that checked D was “Apparently” thrown out? Which is it? Or should the headline be “School Board Member unable to convey simple story”?

          BTW, if your trying to signal me your jewish, and you are still voting for obama, you are truly are ignorant of what has been going on,. then again, democrats rely on the gullible.

    This issue has GOT to be brought up during the debates. How the hell will Romney be able to justify what has been going on under his nose, if not actually done by his direction? Obama has to absolutely bring this to a head and force Romney to admit to the fraud and explain to the American people why he should be president if he doesn’t even believe in the the right for everyone to vote!

  • phanya2012

    Now we know: everything the Republican Party accuses anyone else of doing is what they are doing or, in the case of gun control, what they know should be done. They knew voter fraud existed because they have been indulging in it for years…so they assume others do it, too. We individuals do the same thing, by the way, so be careful how much of your own dark side you give away when accusing others. :)

  • Alan8

    The Republicans don’t do democracy well; it’s not in their genes. In several Republican primaries, there were MORE ballots submitted than voters.

    In others, they had great difficulty answering the simple question, “who got more votes”, changing their answer several times.

    It’s folly to put people from this corrupt party into positions of power.

  • JC_in_Belgium

    This is just one more example of the criminal greed of the GOP and its financial backers. Shameful and shocking. If this scam results in disqualification of voters whose documentation has been tampered with, the response ought to be revolution while there is still a possibility of redress.

    Machiavelli is alive and well, today; and, resides in the Republican National Election Committee.

    If they don’t Win this Election; their Future looks bleak. The Opposition will have four years to expose the Republicans for the S . . . they pulled, in an effort to Steal this Election.

  • panicalep

    Folks,
    Worse than only registering Republicans, is to falsely register Democrats, who would be stopped from voting at the polling booth because these individuals were deliberately placed on a “Fraudulent Registration List”. Please, please investigate this point deeper in all states.

    This is a major story yet the entire mainstream media has not mentioned a single word about it. When the false allegations about ACORN came up in the past, it was plastered all over the media. So much for the charge that mainstream media is liberal!!! If this voter fraud is not halted by the courts, then I cantruly say that theRethugLIArcons have the judges bought off and in their pockets.

  • irishtap

    Though it is difficult to put aside our valid consternation toward this obvious assault on representative government: it is imperative to recognize we have citizens of this country fully committed to circumvent the voting process, to expand a nefarious agenda. GOP zealots see the democratic process as a barrier to whatever political/societal engineering measures they want implemented: from destroying Medicare and Social Security to a woman’s right to manage her own reproductive health. We must show outrage with intelligent, fact driven reprisal to place this issue under the glare of the public eye and to put these enemies of our government on notice. Contact the attorney general office of your state, to voice your concern for the documented widespread GOP actions of sedition, whether run by Democrat/Republican/Independent or Green Party. Make known you are aware of certain facts and that it is expected a full scale investigation be waged to bring these traitors to justice.
    These people are in fact just cowards whom feel, because they have the power of dirty money behind them they have nothing to worry about. We can change that, if we are engaged as a collective voice.

    How far can the Republican Party fall? The Pit keeps getting deeper and deeper. They truely have no shame, morals or ethics. They should be on their knees asking to be forgiven, instead they will blame the media, President and Democrats. The good news it will probably just send more of those undecided voters over to President Obama.

    WHY is the obama administration and democrats preventing military ballots from being sent to soldiers defending the right to vote, they say they are dedicated to making sure ever vote is counted, unless it is a vote for Romney?
    WHY is the obama administration and democrats paying their Corrupt Judicial Hacks to prevent voters from proving they are US citizens before voting?
    WHY is the obama administration and democrats giving free Cell Phones to a select group of voters to vote for obama?
    Why is the obama administration and democrats using ACORN and their affiliates to stuff ballot boxesd and commot voter fraud?
    Why is the obama administration and democrats trying to hang voter fraud on the Republican party, as soon as they found out, the Company was fired? If they were democrats the obama Main Stream Media Hacks would not report it and it has continue to this day.
    WHY were Black Panther allowed to engage in voter intimidation at the polls.
    WHY DID Democratic Attorney General ERIC HOLDER and the DEPT. OF JUSTICE refuse to investige or prosecute those Black Panthers involved and drop all charges)?
    WHY has ERIC HODER and the DEPT OF JUSTICE sued states for requiring proof of citizenship to vote?
    WHY did the obama administration

          Show us prove of democratic voter fraud. The ones that are pointing out the Republican voter are people in government in states that the Republicans have control of both the Governors office and the state Congress so there are many pointing out the Republican voter fraud but you nor anyone else have shown any proof of fraud by Democrats. We are not spreading lies about Republican voter fraud, if you don’t believe us get in touch with the election officials in Florida and see how wide spread the Republican fraud is in that state. There are other states like North Carolina and Virginia that investigating the same group that was hired by the state GOP in Florida. So VetPatroit you need to research for yourself since you think that people are lying about the Republican voter fraud in Florida and possibly in other states. As I said at the start show us the the prove of the Democrats voter fraud and when you can’t be sure and aplogise (not spelled right) to the Democrats for telling lies on them.

  • VETPATRIOT

    That’s because the obama administration and the main stream media do not want voters to know they are behind this blatant lie. You know if it was true it would be all over Yahoo, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN and every other obama media hacks network.

  • sevendecades

    Please check Kentucky also. Lexington KY Herald Leader today reported that Republican voter registration is going up rapidly recently but I know of no special pushes that would cause this. So, of course, because of rampant “dishonesty in politics today” I wonder could this be – registering the deceased, disabled, nursing home residents, known non-votes, etc.?

  • Lolasthree

    So, do you think this is related to the Koch brothers new campaign in Florida to remove 3 Florida Supreme Court Justices from the bench so that Scott can replace them with his own candidates? If this fraud makes it through the courts it would certainly help the Republicans to have stacked the court.

    So, now we know why the extreme right have made various statements discounting the polls as biased, or better yet out of the Romney campaign: they trust ” their own polls” which means they knew they had an ace in the hole.
    The current extremist GOP faction threatens the freedom that it so vociferously says it is defending.

    Once again, Florida is a disreputable player in our national elections, “look out for the gator, baby”. Stupid and crazy do roll to the south.

    It is no surprise that election shenanigans have a bi-partisan flavor, and all the more reason for having effective fraud filters in place, INCLUDING voter identification procedures that are not as leaky as a sieve. I don’t mind being outvoted by real people, as long as they are still alive, and voting only once, but getting outvoted by “vote early and often” and fraudulently marked absentee ballots, and ballots “accidentally overlooked” and “discovered” in the trunk of a partisan election official during a recount (and then deemed valid by a Soros project-elected Secretary of State), or precincts where the voters voted in alphabetic order and all for the same candidate – - -that sucks.

Since all this fraud has been found and has been done by Republicans or people representing them every state that Republicans have pushed their ID law into effect should have the law be declared null and void not enforceable in the up coming elections. The news media should make this breaking of the law front page stories and lead the news stories on TV like they did Acorn after Acorn turned in their criminals, a fact that was not reported by the news media nor the Republicans who ruined and bankraupt this organization with their lies and half truths, because if they don’t do that then we will all know for sure that the media in this country is on the side of the right instead of being neutral like they used to be. If they don’t charge some of the people involved in this fraud, not just Sproul but Republican leaders on the National and state party levels then someone needs to sue the justice department, state justice departments and the Secretary of States of all the states that the fraud has happened in for not doing their job.
