Jorn the Younger: FTFA: Sproul told the Times he formed Strategic Allied Consulting at the request of the RNC for publicity's sake, given past negative media coverage of Lincoln stemming from past allegations going back to 2004, when employees in Nevada and Oregon signed up Democrats but threw out their forms instead of turning them in.

Ah, the old "Change your name so it takes longer for people to realize your pulling the same old dirty tricks" ploy.


Yep. And how much do you want to bet that SAC goes out of business in the next couple months, but that all the employees find nice new jobs at a new company called Democratic Elections 'R' Perfect?

More like "Democrats have been doing it too, for years, and in wholesale lots." And they're still doing it.

There were two women doing voter registration downtown just the other day. They were going about it in an interesting fashion - they'd go to young women and minorities, but go out of their way to avoid men or conservative-looking white women.


Tu quoque aside, that is perfectly legal provided that you don't refuse to register anyone who asks and are certain to turn in all forms that are filled out.

This has been the standard practice for years of Democrat-sponsored voter registration drives: either ignore anyone who didn't "look" right, or only go to places for voter registration drives where they'd get strong Democrat support. Of course, the real issue with the Democrat registration drives by groups like ACORN wasn't in only registering one party's voters, but in making up fake Democrat registrations and discarding registrations for the Republicans...

You don't seem to understand that the ACORN controversy was a non-starter because ACORN turned in all filled out forms as required by law and flagged forms for review that they thought might have been filed with false information as a courtesy.

If you have evidence that ACORN was discarding registration forms or otherwise violating the law I strongly urge you to contact the appropriate authorities as this information did not come to light in any investigation of ACORN that I am aware of.

What constitutes a "conservative looking white woman"? Do they all look alike?

How do registration drive volunteers go out of your way to avoid men? When men approach the registration table do they hastily fold the table up, dash to another location a block or two away, and re-open for business?

Did you make any effort to approach them to test whether they would willingly register you? Or were you too busy being convinced that "They don't want to register white men because we are white men."?

Fun fact - Sproul is also involved in the for-profit education industry - charter schools and the like - and he's profited handsomely from the efforts of Republican legislators in several states. Funny, that.

If you actually understood what they stand for you'd know why they oppose Obama's ideas. They oppose drones because they don't lead to occupation, and in their mind, colonies. They oppose Sharia because you can't have a theocracy of two religions. It only looks like hypocrisy from a distance. It's actually just plain stupid evil.

I'm the libbiest lib that ever libbed, and I know at least one person who works for a voter organization (non-profit) group that has no interest in registering Romney supporters. What's wrong with that?

There is nothing wrong with setting up registration drives in places that skew to one party. Both sides do that. However, you cannot refuse to register or disregard the registrations of people who don't like that particular party.

IIRC from the first thread, there weren't actually any laws against that.
If the girl was in fact working for the county clerk's office like she claimed, then it would have been illegal, since the county clerk's office is supposed to be nonpartisan. But when an independent group does it, it's not illegal.
Saying that you work for the County Clerk when you really don't, definitely sounds like it should be illegal though, even if driven by stupidity.


Actually, any group taking voter registrations has to comply with FEC rules, one of which is you have to take and submit any registration that is given.

The fraudulent claim of saying she worked for the county clerk was just what caught her.

A few weeks back, walking through the student union, some friends and I walked passed the college republican tent. One of them asked one of us if we would like to register republican, and he said no thank you. I then heard him mutter under his breath, "didn't think so". I confronted the guy about this, and he told me he was talking about someone else. I then asked him if he would register me if I told him I was going to vote democratic, and he said no, that his boss wouldn't allow that. Someone else them came over, about 5 minutes into the conversation, backtracking the situation, saying that as a matter of fact, they had already registered 2 democrats that day.

After that, ive had no trouble believing all of the crap coming out about these registration companies.

Trying? That's not illegal. Arguably wrong, but not illegal. For example, you could intentionally not knock on doors your know to be democratic voters. But once somebody requests a form or hands you a completed one you're obligated to turn it in. It's to prevent people like this nitwit from just whipping your form in the trash so that you think you're registered only to find out on election day you can't vote.

I'm the libbiest lib that ever libbed, and I know at least one person who works for a voter organization (non-profit) group that has no interest in registering Romney supporters. What's wrong with that?

There is nothing wrong with setting up registration drives in places that skew to one party. Both sides do that. However, you cannot refuse to register or disregard the registrations of people who don't like that particular party.


IIRC from the first thread, there weren't actually any laws against that.
If the girl was in fact working for the county clerk's office like she claimed, then it would have been illegal, since the county clerk's office is supposed to be nonpartisan. But when an independent group does it, it's not illegal.
Saying that you work for the County Clerk when you really don't, definitely sounds like it should be illegal though, even if driven by stupidity.

not5am: themindiswatching: propasaurus: Strategic Allied Consulting was paid $3 million by the RNC, $400k by the Colorado GOP, another $1.3 million by the Florida GOP, just to name a few. Not bad for a company that just opened up in June. The owner's other company is on the payroll of the Romney campaign.

So...legalized money laundering?

$400K is half of colorado gop's budget. are they looking to bankrupt themselves?


They're going for the Hail Mary of "winning by preventing Democrats from casting votes in the first place." Since they know they can't win fair and square, they're trying to win by hook and crook.

Besides, they don't need to worry about having a budget of under one million dollars when the Super PACs have budgets of hundreds of millions or even billions.

The republicans complain about Obama being divisive while complaing about half the country and blah people causing all the problems?


If only there was some word in the english language that could define this behavior.

And I think we have established that the best way to find out what the republicans have been doing lately is to listen to waht they are complaining about.

The Republicans are complaining about Obama's drone strikes after dragging us into two wars and while itching for a third.

The Republicans are complaining about the "Threat" of Sharia law while trying to institute a Christian theocracy.

Honestly, we could list these off all day and never run out of ideas.

Felgraf: After all, if 90% of the African american population votes for the Democrats, then, well, fark it, toss all registrations from blacks. Sure, they'll catch some republicans, but statistically they'll screw over the Democrats a lot harder.


Sure, all I'm saying is if you're looking at how somebody dresses (since we're talking about an in-person voter registration drive), you can pretty easily do the same kind of math. Maybe not as precise, but still pretty good.

If all you had were names, addresses, and a map, you could make the same assumptions without seeing people.

serial_crusher: Who needs evidence or anything like that?


You mean like in 2004 when there were widespread allegations of registration fraud against Spraul in Arizona during his stint with the state republican party?

So it's okay to tear down ACORN, a group that broke no laws, because a cross-dressing criminal intentionally edits a video to create an impression of an incident that never happened.... but the stuff in AZ was only allegations so it makes perfect sense that this guy would be hired again to do the same work of which he was accused of messing up before?

Just making sure I understand your special brand of lie you special, special boy.

I was in the Young Republicans briefly in 1968 and did some door-to-door voter registration, "looking for unregistered Republicans" was our line. Signed up a few from both both parties. Got to meet a guy who voted for McKinley, so that was cool. Was YR the modern day equivalent of the Hitler Youth? Kind of. Think more self-righteous and less competent. A friend of mine did similar work for the equivalent Democrat youth organization and had pretty much the same experience. The only group of people more terrifying in their ideology I've ever been around was freshman journalism majors.

This has been the standard practice for years of Democrat-sponsored voter registration drives: either ignore anyone who didn't "look" right, or only go to places for voter registration drives where they'd get strong Democrat support. Of course, the real issue with the Democrat registration drives by groups like ACORN wasn't in only registering one party's voters, but in making up fake Democrat registrations and discarding registrations for the Republicans...


You realize that there was no wrongdoing actually found on the behalf of ACORN? But then again, you're a partisan hack so I don't expect you to.

They were known for doing this in the past. The Republicans knew this, asked them to change their name to avoid looking guilty, then hired them again.

THEN fired them after they got caught doing it again.

That's like hiring a babysitter who has killed every child they've sat for before, and acting SHOCKED when they kill yours too.

well here is my anecdotal evidence:
went to the queen soopers downtown and the lady was yelling at the top of her lungs to anyone with an ear to register and get out their vote.
she didnt give a fark and i look just like your white male republican, even got out of a work truck right in front of her to go deposit my check.
to hear of voter reg. fraud in my state pisses me off, but based on the statisticals, they have to do better than that to steal this state.

So the GOP can't really claim they were somehow mislead on this, they actually sought this guy out and suggested he form a new company to try to obscure who they were dealing with.

And in four years, they'll hire him again.


I'd say it's a plus he get caught sooner and sooner in the election cycle, but given what he's doing, he should see massive fines and jail time.

from STRATEGIC ALLIED CONSULTING


Our company has recently come under scrutiny because the Palm Beach County
Supervisor of Elections found approximately 20 suspicious cards that had been
turned into her office through a project our company managed.

Due to our quality control measures, we were able to identify that the cards in
question were all the work of one individual. We then gathered copies of the other
86 cards this gentleman had collected and turned those over to them as well.

Ms. Bucher, the Supervisor of Elections, thanked our managers for their
organization and complimented our team for its quality control measures.

To put this in perspective, in Palm Beach over 100 people worked on the effort.
Statewide in Florida, over 2,000 worked on the effort. And nationally, we had
thousands more working in other states.

The reason we have quality control measures in place is because we recognize that
with projects this large, there will be isolated incidents of individuals trying to cheat
the system.

We are aware of questionable cards in a few additional counties. In the three
counties where we know the details, each county is limited to one individual.

Our voter registration projects began in 2004 with a large project from the
Republican National Committee. Toward the end of that project, an individual in
NV spuriously claimed to see Democrat voter registration cards torn up and in a
trashcan.

Senator Kennedy requested an investigation by the Department of Justice
concerning the entire effort. The DOJ and Arizona Attorney General's Office
launched an investigation. After a period of time, the investigations and the files
were closed. Readers may view the file closing cover sheet here. It should also be
noted that the Attorney General in Arizona at the time was a Democrat.

The Democrat Attorney General in Oregon and the Nevada Attorney General also
began investigations. In each of the three investigations conducted by four law
enforcement agencies, we were given a clean bill of health.

Our quality control measures and the clear intent of our culture to not tolerate fraud
were clearly on display to anyone investigating. We would refer you to a memo drafted
by our attorney detailing the rigorous quality control procedures that we enforce
with our supervisors. That memo can be seen here.

In the eight years that our company and affiliated companies have existed, we
have registered over 500,000 voters across the country. We have conducted voter
registration and grassroots projects in over 40 states.

There is a reason we are hired for these difficult projects. No other consulting
company in the country can quickly grow a program to scale with high levels of
quality control in place, meet its goals and stay on budget.

We are very proud of our work product. Unfortunately, not everyone takes the issue
of fraud seriously. When someone commits voter fraud, it is an affront to everyone
living in this country. We wrote the following email to our supervisors toward the
beginning of this project. It can be viewed here.

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.

While we wish their comments yesterday would have more accurately addressed the
situation, we understand the logic of ending distractions and winning elections. We
wish our friends there nothing but success going forward.

Previously, during this campaign we issued the following email to our supervisors:

"Supervisors,

The bright white lights of a presidential campaign are on. This was filmed in NV. You can see that our worker did her job pefectly. Good job, but what if she hadn't? We have to constantly remind our supervisors of our culture of excellence and integrity. Excellence because we are thorough, precise and pay attention to detail. Integrity because we honor the sanctity of the voter registration process. When a new voter entrusts us with there voter registration card, there are a few things that deserve more care and attention. Men and women gave their lives so we could have the privilege to vote. When we drill into our supervisors heads that regardless of who the new voter supports for President we will honor their card with the respect it deserves, we teach them how to teach their workers. 

// Just passing it along. Why don't you tell me the truth?
