Apparently dead people love to vote. Just weeks after Texas counties tried to purge their voter rolls by eliminating supposedly deceased voters (many of whom beg to disagree), it turns out that a firm hired by the Republican National Committee may have been registering truly deceased Republicans to vote in Florida. In ironic turn of events, the Republicans who have been strong proponents of the Voter ID laws, insisting that voter fraud does in fact exist, are now smack dab in the middle of a voter fraud investigation. A real, live criminal investigation.
The main player in this investigation is Nathan Sproul, a veteran GOP consultant, and his firm Strategic Allied Consulting. What is the cherry on top for the Democrats is that Sproul has a long history of suspected voter fraud dating back to 2004 and 2008 campaigns and was still hired by the RNC for this election cycle. His firm was paid $3 million to get out the vote in the swing states for the 2012 elections. To combat prior as well as the recent allegations, Strategic Allied Consulting’s website now features a lengthy defense against the claims of voter registration fraud.
