Rove’s American Crossroads Shares Address, Legal Firm with Sproul’s Strategic Allied Consulting


Old Republican scam artists never die. They just create new shell corporations and rely on the fact that mainstream corporate media is unlikely to bother connecting any dots. So let’s connect a few, shall we?

Yesterday in Salon.com, Craig Unger, author of Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove’s Secret Kingdom of Power (a new book which tracks quite a bit of Rove’s 2004 election chicanery, including the mysterious death of Ohio’s GOP election tech guru Mike Connell, etc) wrote about Rove’s ties “to shady GOP operative Nathan Sproul.”

Sproul is the paid Mitt Romney political consultant at the center of the GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal, who, though the RNC claimed they had fired him after fraudulent registration forms were recently discovered in some 12 Florida counties, is still at work on behalf of Republicans in 30 different states, according to the LA Times. The long history of voter registration fraud allegations against his companies since 2004 are so toxic that Sproul says the RNC asked him to create the shell company, Strategic Allied Consulting, this past June without his name on the corporate filings in order to hide his involvement. (RNC spokesman Sean Spicer claims he’s unaware of such a request, though Sproul tells us he stands by the assertion.)

Unger points to the letter [PDF] we posted late last week from Rep. Charles Gonzalez (D-TX), ranking member of the U.S. House Elections subcommittee, sent to Rove, with a series of questions about his involvement with Sproul, including the purposes of some $750,000 that Rove’s American Crossroads Super PAC paid to Sproul, as well as questions about Rove’s dealings with Sproul and his companies “during the 2000 and 2004 Presidential campaigns.”

While the congressman requests a response from Rove by October 23, “so that every American who is eligible to vote may go to the polls on November 06 confident that neither you nor any of your political organizations is engaged in an effort to undermine the integrity of our electoral process,” if “Bush’s Brain” stays true to form, he’ll simply ignore the Congressional inquiry entirely.

In this case, once again, he may have very good reason to, as Rove’s relationship to Sproul and the Strategic Allied Consulting firm now appear to be even closer than Rep. Gonzalez had suggested in his letter last week.

It now appears that Strategic Allied Consulting has the same corporate mailing address in Virginia as Rove’s American Crossroads PAC. Imagine that…

Late last week, the state of Florida released the original election fraud complaint [PDF] filed against Strategic last month. That complaint eventually led to the full-blown criminal investigation by the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement said to now be underway.

As sharp-eyed BRAD BLOG commenter “Citizen92” noticed in those newly released documents, the “Key takeaway from this is that Strategic Allied Consulting has a business address of 45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100, Warrenton, VA.”

“Who else has a business address at 45 North Hill Drive?” Citizen92 asked rhetorically., “American Crossroads, Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie’s 527 group.”

Indeed our good Citizen92 is correct, according to the IRS 527 filing for American Crossroads [PDF], the mailing address for Rove’s outfit is also 45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100, in Warrenton, VA.

The address belongs to HoltzmanVogelJosefiak PLLC, a top RNC law firm headed up by Jill Holtzman Vogel, who also now serves as a Virginia state senator from the 27th District.

The practice areas for the firm, according to their website, include “Election Law,” “Lobbying and Government Ethics” and “Tax-Exempt Organizations.” Perfect.

According to her law firm bio, managing partner Holtzman Vogel “specializes in ethics, campaign finance and tax exempt organizations. In addition to managing the firm, in February 2004, she was named Chief Counsel of the Republican National Committee. As counsel, she led the national party’s legal effort during the 2004 Presidential election.”

      Not Only Eat Each Other They Hate Each Other And They Have Big Ego Along With Those Big Hog Heads!!! All Are KKK Members, John Birch, Greedy, Selfish, Immoral And LIARS!!!

  2. Dominick Vila October 18, 2012

    Arrogance, despotism, egotism, greed and lack of patriotism. These are the guys that have engaged in business deals with the Iranian Ayatollahs while U.S. and international sanctions were in effect against Iran, the people that participated in the Iraq con job, the ones that declared Saudi Arabia a Most Favored Nation for trade purposes after Saudi Wahhabists carried out the worst foreign terrorist attack on U.S. soil since we became a nation, and the same people that have been manipulating the price of oil and encouraging foreign investment and outsourcings, and pushed for thederegulation that contributed to the near collapse of the U.S. economy and our financial system. Their support to RR is influenced by a desire to resume sole source contracts and outright thievery.

    1. Fern Woodfork October 18, 2012

      Plus The Fact That In Private They Are Having A Pissing Contest Trying To See Who Can Hoard The Most Money Before They Die!! They All Hate Each Other Just Like They Really Don’t Like Romney But They Know He’s Just Like Them With The Same Evil Traits So They Put They Money Behind Him Cause Then He Will Owe Them All Kinds Of Favors!!!

    2. emadis41 October 18, 2012

      Deregulation, or weak or no regulations at all. Romney said that some regulation are needed, I bet his regulations will spill over. Imagine one spill from this Keystone Oil Pipeline that will carry sludge from Canada, to be refined in Houston for exporting having just one spill as that of BP Gulf of Mexico. I think the GOP would be happy and would appologies as the did to BP over the Gulf spill. They will be happy if another Medicine as the Thalidomide mamed and killed our babies. This is just a sample.

  5. Annie Bolden October 18, 2012

    Glad to know the word is out. Vote and the loop hole they have will close. The people that are looking out for this country are doing a good job. I just these stories would be on local communication so everyone would know the truth. As long as mainstream media only show part and not they will win. Bush cheated when he stole our votes. Don’t let it happen again. Check and double check the facts not fiction. Because their his a lot of truth out their.Your vote is only thing big money want. Next to block any bill that will make America thrive. Vote people and stop them.

  6. Frank Libbon October 18, 2012

    These are the ones Teddy Roosevelt meant as “Traitors to the People.” Lock them up and throw away the key.

  7. douglas October 18, 2012

    All of these men are dangerous. All of them are arrogant crooks. Everyone knows how crooked Rove is. The Koch brothers plant in Arkansas is killing people every year because they refuse to stop polluting the air and streams. They get away with it because the state politicians and agencies are afraid to enforce the law.

    1. 1bythebrooks2 October 18, 2012

      I think it is high time for the Justice Department to really dig into these arrogant crooks dealings and start the ball rolling to put them behind bars where they should have already been for a long time!

    HEY…..It’s “PIGLET IN A SUIT!”

  9. Marisela Martinez October 18, 2012

    These are Romney’s “Investors” – These are the people that CEO Romney is fighting for in this campaign and who will benefit more if Romney is elected. This is Romney’s 1 point plan for the economy. I wish we could get through those Romney voters who think that Romney could come into the Whitehouse and just make everything better. What a fantasy!!

  10. Charles Henderson October 18, 2012

    Doesn’t Carl look like Rush? A felon and an addict and yet in our great country we allow them to engage in there anti-american free speech, while millions of americans have the right to wake up each day and listen to them. Carl needs prison and Rush needs rehab.

    KNOW THIS-“PAM-BONDI” is the clone of Jeb Bush, Adam Goodman, & Kathleen Shanahan ($$$-Inside-connect), who served as chief of Staff for Gov. Jeb Bush & Veep Dick Cheney & she top dog (director) in the Fl. State Education Dept. & 13 other organizations, look her up on MUCKETY-relationship map. Bondi story is classic NEO-CON insanity, go to, Miami Herald-Front Page 11-8-2010, “Attorney General Pam Bondi Timing, hard work drove journey. Adam Goodman considered Bondi, 44, a candidate straight out of central casting: fresh, smart, attractive. A real life candidate. She’s from Hillsborough State Attorneys Office, she’s a “FOX” News analyst, she’s down on Obama Care. The rightful heir to the State Attorney’s office should have been Dan Gelber, a man of the people who continually bad-mouthed Voucher,Virtual, Robo T.V. minus the humanities, where as Jeb & Neil Bush & Family have been pushing IGNITE! LEARNING * the “PRIVATIZATION” of our “PUBLIC-SCHOOLS”-communism. Jeb butted heads with Florica’s Supreme Court for his entire tenure
    under-funding public schools giving tax money to private & parochial, until our Supreme Court had him cease & decist from doing so in 2006. Jeb is the “MAN-BEHIND-THE-CURTAIN” in the Iran-Contra & Privateization of our public schools & Katrina was the litmus test as/per Uncle-Miltie-Freedman. & Nielzie-wielzy buried the SILVERRADO SAVINGS & LOAN, dumped on tax-payers for $1.2 Billion Large, before he got into teaching our children, scary.

    1. Justin Napolitano October 18, 2012

      The performance of the charter schools are far worse than public schools. 50% of them have failing scores and many have gone bankrupt. It is time to end the charter school experiment and send Jeb Bush into retirement.

  12. jebediah123 October 18, 2012

    I read a lot of good comments here about covert activities and behind-the-scenes political maneuvering by Republican supporters—both legal and illegal. The question is—What can be done about it?? Bringing it to light is not enough. Anyone have any answers??

    1. Fern Woodfork October 18, 2012

      Get Their Asses Out Of Office Take Away Their POWER!!! VOTE!!!

  13. William Deutschlander October 18, 2012

    The TRUTH is that these folks (theives) should be investigated for TREASON!

    They are ALL GRAVE DANGERS to our Republic and Democracy.

    The Republican Cartel should also be investigated for TREASON!

    TREASON – violation of alegiance toward one’s soverign or country.

  15. William Frederick Brooks October 18, 2012

    The term “Ugly American” fits here. Except that these guys do their behind the scenes dirty dealing against the American people instead of the world at large. The collusion, political manipulation and other projects that these characters are mixed up in should be laid out for all to see.

    These are the guys that turn good people against each other so that they can benefit politically and financially. A great deal of the problems that we currently face are wrapped up in the webs of deceit that they spin.

    Any laws that exist should be utilized to reign in this type of activity. If the laws don’t exist, we need to work to create them. The type of political games that these guys play are probably not that different to the shenanigans that occurred during the last years of the Roman Empire. However, we are not Rome and hopefully, we are smart enough to realize it before the damage that they do cannot be undone.

  16. Carol October 18, 2012

    The fraud that took place in the Bush/Chaney elections will eventually be fully uncovered. Yet the real damage was all the troops that died, the money spent, it is treason. You can bet, little boy Bush,( a draft dodger X-President, that he shakes in his skin daily, and Chaney should be hung. Money going to the billionairs like Chaney and Halliburton. Yes fraud occurred, and the GOP masterminded it with their big law firms, then for gifts of their rewards, made them Senators and representatives of our country with their PAC groups and lobby crooks. They have tried to destroy and Hoffa style diminish the truth tellers, but in the end,,,,,,,,,,,, Their day will come……

  17. Carol October 18, 2012

    Just imagine ,, if Bush and Cheney did not get elected, your son, daughter, mother father husband and so on, would still be here. Kerry would of been a diplomatic President and we would not have had the fake wars for the past century along with the world trade,,,,,think about it.

      Because they all represent big business. Their CEOs will make even more if Romney is elected.

      Would you bite the hand of someone who is promising to feed you?

        Hell Yeah They Stab Each Other In the Back For Sports!! Look What Cheney Did To His Fellow Thug!!!

  20. Marta Steele October 18, 2012

    After all these years of massive problems with registration, absentee voting, and hugely defective and tamperable voting systems, it’s beyond belief that published polls don’t consider this factor at all. Who can take the polls seriously? If there’s a narrow Democratic lead, there’s none at all. If the scores are close, God help us all. If Romney wins, I predict a mass migration to the Eurozone, putting Latino totals here to shame. And so on.

  21. ObozoMustGo October 18, 2012


    Let’s talk about the most important issue of the day: THE BENGHAZI COVER UP.

    Obozo was lying during the debate and the fat chick, Candy Crowley, covered for his lies. His speech in the rose garden said nothing about the planned and coordinated terror attack in Benghazi, but merely remarked about terror in general. He lied. It is now known that we had a predator drone over the consulate recording and beaming back the incident as it occurred to the White House situation room. They knew immediately, as it happened, that it was a planned, military-style, terror attack. How do we know he was not talking about Benghazi? Because for 4 weeks follwing 9/11 he and his useful idiot tools, like Rice, were going on TV and giving interviews and making speeches claiming the incident was from a spontaneous protest over a stupid movie trailer on YouTube. NEVER ONCE has Obozo ever admitted that the incident was a planned and coordinated radical Islamic terrorist attack. He lied and covered this up for a month. He is now doing the rope-a-dope by claiming an investigation must be done before they know what happened when they watched it.

    The question is why? I know why. Because the lie is less costly than that truth. What is the truth? Here it is.

    The Ambassador was a CIA operative working North Africa many for many years, definitely former, maybe current as well. He brokered the deals to get US weapons in the hands of the rebels (Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood terrorists) to take over Kaddafi. The 2 ex-Navy SEALS were CIA operatives. They were in Benghazi without military protection because they were secretly trying to track down the weapons cache that we gave to the terrorists. How do we know the SEALS were CIA operatives? Because one of them was interviewed by ABC 1 week prior where he said that part of his mission in Libya is to find weapons stashes. He did not admit to being a CIA operative, but we do know this: Embassy guards and ambassadors DO NOT go looking for weapons stashes as a part of their duties. That’s also why the drone was flying above. It was helping to find the weapons.

    The reason Obozo is lying about this whole thing is that he does not want it to come out before the election that he has been supplying radical Islamic terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda with high tech US weapons. He is now doing the same exact thing in Syria. This should be the lead story on every newspaper and every TV news show, but they are in the tank for Obozo. Just like the fat chick Candy demonstrated very clearly during the debate.

    The truth will come out at some point. God willing, it will be before the election and Obozo will be revealed as the lying empty suit that he really is.

    Have a nice day!

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

    1. Brian October 18, 2012

      No, the biggest issue of the day and of the entire campaign is, “Do Romney/Ryan tell the truth?”

      The unequivocal answer is “No.”

      A conservative quoting from Goebbels is appropriate. It’s how the Republican/Tea Partyers framed their playbook.

      Hey Obozo
      Have you been down in Roswell drinking the bad juice with the kooks out on the far southwest side? I worry about you friend – I think you’ve “lost it”. Have a nice day and see if you can find your true inner-self.

      1. ObozoMustGo October 18, 2012

        Hey old, buddy! Nice to hear from you.

        I think that I’m not the one in this conversation who’s drinking the kool aide here, my friend. Obozo’s spinning and spinning around this debacle in Libya but he’s not gonna get away with it. You should open your eyes to the truth and not be so blind.

        Have a nice day!

      Another Karl Rover generated piece of bovine fecal matter. Hell’s bells you clown, this was answered on national TV during the debate.

      You are scratching the bottom of the barrel. OK, the end is almost here and you can rest until 2016 and the next defeat.

    5. Justin Napolitano October 18, 2012

      The Nazi’s would be proud of you Obozo. I hate your name because Bozo the clown was an honorable person where you are a Republican PAID hack.
      In fact based on the lies you tell the Nazi’s would make you their Fuehrer.

      Have a nice day.

      If you were writing a novel this might work for you. As any kind of truth it is a bit short of the mark. This is simply made up out of whole cloth. You are spouting fantasy and offering it as fact. You assert things you couldn’t possibly know. God will have very little to do with it since the truth is already out there. (This of course is aside from the fact that God is surely a Democrat. God hates liars and plutocrats.) What you offer is not the truth or any sort of truth. Go get straight with your God and we will say a little prayer for your bound for hell soul.

        1. awakenaustin October 19, 2012

          I guess you missed the “may” in that headline. I “may” be the offspring of some highly evolved, extremely advanced extraterrestrial life form who is able to disable people with thought waves, but luckily for you I am not. My mother “may” be a billionaire, unfortunately for me and my sisters she isn’t. You “may” someday actually say something worth reading.
          I have read the article, it reads like every other conspiratorial nonsense theory ever put out. It lists a bunch of possibly true or possibly untrue unverifiable statements and offers opinions on what these may mean and draws unsupported conclusions. Even assuming for the purposes of argument only, that everything in it is true it doesn’t even make a good circumstantial case for the article headline’s premise and it certainly does not support the fantasy you set out in your previous post. You do realize “X-Files” and “Covert Affairs” are fictional TV series and not a documentaries.

    7. Landsende October 18, 2012

      Hi Bozo
      You say you know the truth. Where did you get your information and can it be documented. It seems to me if they were CIA operatives that information would be classified in order to protect them, their families and the country. If someone leaked this information and outed them as agents like Cheney did to Valerie Plame they should be branded as traitors and should be prosecuted. I listen to and read all different news media except for Fox News and Rush Limbaugh to whom the truth is inconsequential, and there has been no mention of any of your allegations so please name your sources.

      Have a nice day!

      1. ObozoMustGo October 19, 2012

        Hi Land… the sources are a smattering of reporters that are actually doing their job and asking questions. The conclusions regarding the status of CIA operatives is based upon what they are doing. You see, Land, Ambassadors do not broker arms deals to assist overthrow of governments. Stevens did. Embassy guards do NOT go on arms hunting missions. One of those former SEALS said in an interview with ABC 1 week prior to his death that part of his role in Libya was finding weapons stashes. Embassy guards DO NOT go on weapons hunting missions. These are the jobs of CIA operatives. You do not hear this stuff because you do not want to hear this stuff. Even the leftist rag NY Slimes has had a couple of articles, although they were burried, on the arms that Obozo has supplied to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, and now it is FACT that he is doing the same in Syria. This is the real cover up. Remember, you must ask yourself why Obozo continued to bold face lie about the incident being over a 2-bit YouTube trailer when EVERYONE knew he was lying? Because everyone knowing he’s lying is less costly than everyone knowing the ugly truth. If they did, his poll numbers would be in the teens and he’d likely be impeached with the support of his own party. The truth will come out Land. It will come out.

        Go the The Business Insider right now. It was just posted about what Stevens was doing in Benghazi.

        Thank you for your thoughts, Land. I always enjoy chatting with you.

        Have a nice day!

        1. Landsende October 19, 2012

          I’m sorry. I read the article you mentioned and could not come to the same conclusions as you. There is no proof Ambassador Stevens and the Navy Seals were CIA agents or brokering arms to Libya or Syria. The article did a lot of speculating but used a lot of words like “could have”, “maybe” and “it’s believed”, but had no hard evidence. I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this article.

    Please explain your comment. To whom is it addressed and what does it mean?

    If it is meant to refer to someone or some group as cowards, the proper term is sissies. If it some sort of acronym, I’m not familiar with it.

  23. Factzguy October 18, 2012

    Has anyone else noticed how day after day after day Off-the-Mark Levin hammers the EPA and rants about the Obama War on Coal?

    Could it be that the Koch Bros. fund “Americans for Prosperity?” And the right wing radio gasbags like Sean Hannity accept advertising dollars from The Heritage Foundation (father of universal health care) for “editorial advocacy?”

    Connect the dots. Follow the money. No matter how you look it, it is remarkably fishy.
