Employees of the consulting firm that the Republican Party of Florida hired in 2012 to do voter registration have admitted they forged registration forms according to an ongoing voter fraud investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
The firm, Strategic Allied Consulting was hired by the RPOF who paid them over $1.3 million to sign up voters until forms that were questionable turned up. The RPOF then fired them, but the company claimed it was only a few bad apples who were responsible. Strategic Allied Consulting was also hired to do the same in Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio and Wisconsin. They were also hired by the Republican National Committee.
Nathan Sproul who runs Strategic Alliance Consulting, has a history with voter fraud allegations, and after the Republican National Committee also dumped Strategic Alliance over the Florida allegations, Strategic Alliance put out this statement:
"When the Republican Party of Florida chose to make likely libelous comments about our effort and stated that the Republican National Committee suggested us as the vendor, the RNC was put in the unenviable position of ending a long-term relationship for the sake of staying focused on the election," the company stated.
The only problem is that the RNC knew all about Sproul's history when they hired, and subsequently dumped him. He was hired by the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2004 for a voter registration drive, then under a firm named Sproul and Associates, he was hired by the McCain-Palin campaign in 2008, and Mitt Romney's campaign also hired him in 2011.
On top of all the back and forth finger pointing between Strategic Alliance Consulting, the RPOF and the RNC, there's also this bit of information (Emphasis mine):
Sproul said he created Strategic Allied Consulting at the RNC's request because the party wanted to avoid being publicly linked to the past allegations. The firm was set up at a Virginia address, and Sproul does not show up on the corporate paperwork.
"In order to be able to do the job that the state parties were hiring us to do, the [RNC] asked us to do it with a different company's name, so as to not be a distraction from the false information put out in the Internet," Sproul said.
The investigation of Strategic Alliance Consulting, according to the FDLE, is not over yet. There are still four more cases pending in Florida.
For all the Republican's ranting over phantom voter fraud, it turns out the real "ACORN boogieman" is actually currently named Strategic Allied Consulting.
