Conservatives guilty of voter fraud themselves after pushing voter ID bills

    Across the country and here in Virginia, conservative politicians have been pushing ALEC-backed voter ID bills to combat a nonexistent voter impersonation problem. But it turns out they may have been the real election fraud problem the whole time.

    CBS 6 WTVR is reporting, “The Republican Party of Virginia has terminated its relationship with Strategic Allied Consulting over allegations of potential voter registration fraud in Florida.” RPV had paid the firm over $500,000 to register voters. The same firm has been fired this week by the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Florida over these allegations.

    CBS 6 talked to Chesterfield Registrar Larry Haake who investigated Strategic Allied Consulting after receiving reports that the firm was inappropriately asking people who they were voting for before offering them a voter registration form.

    Strategic Allied Consulting says its office address is in Glen Allen, Virginia, but CBS 6 visited the office location and the people there said they’d never heard of the firm.

      But here’s confirmation of another wrinkle in the story-the Los Angeles Times reports that Republicans were so concerned with the many scandals surrounding Sproul and his previous work, they indeed asked him to set up a shell corporation to hide the payments. Here’s what Matea Gold and her colleagues reported today: “But his reputation is such that when Sproul was tapped by the RNC to do field work this year, officials requested that he set up a new firm to avoid being publicly linked to the past allegations.” The shell is called “Strategic Allied Consulting,” but Sproul’s real firm carries the name “Sproul and Associates” and “Lincoln Strategy Group.”

      It appears that the Republican Party of California might have its own deal with Sproul, and is also attempting to hide it from the public.
