Nathan Sproul sprouts the angel wings Romney loves. See, Satan -- Beelzebub -- was an angel tossed from heaven. Voter Registration Fraud managed by the nefarious Sproul who assisted GWB, paid for by the GOP/Romney forces, the latest of three-pronged strategy to become public.

Why implicate Rove and Romney?

Romney work by Sproul.
Sproul was hired by the Romney campaign for a period of five months that began last November and ended in March. But now there’s evidence that the payments continued, only to a different name.
Salon
The firm is not only tied to the Florida GOP, but also to the Mitt Romney Campaign, which hired Sproul as a political consultant late last year, despite years of fraud allegations against his organizations in multiple states.
Romney hires Sproul.
Late last year, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign began paying Nathan Sproul, a political consultant with a long history of destroying Democratic voter registration forms and manipulating ballot initiatives. Sproul, who changed his firm’s name from Sproul and Associates to Lincoln Strategies, has received over $70,000 from Romney’s campaign.  ....if his previous work is any guide, his firm may have an impact on key swing states. ~ June 6, 2012
1. Voter Registration Fraud in several states where Sproul minions purport to register Republicans but switch forms from Democrat or Independent to Republican or change address to industrial addresses, or make the voter "dead." It's so easy when you're a devil, excuse me, angel.

2. Voter Suppression laws, GOP/Romney massive attempt in about half the states  to deny Democrats their sacred, Constitutional right to vote.

3. Polls are ALL Wrong. Says Fox/GOP News: Romney is not losing, he is even with the president, knowing it's going to be hard to explain if Romney wins..

4. Pulling the Romney Rabbit from the Hat:  Come election day they will by any means necessary claim victory. Hell. They are already holding "Victory rallies."

SYou can see by the transfer of payments one day, and then payment to Sproul's group, Strategic Allied Consulting the next, happening in multiple cases around the country within a 2 month period (July/August '12) that this Romney/GOP plan is well coordinated. Fully planned out.

Another technique GOP/Romney are using: Use Sproul to hire fakes to attend voter forums and lie about Democratic positions:

GOP's Coal Fraud, using Sproul
ThinkProgress has discovered that ACCCE has subcontracted its astroturf operations to the Lincoln Strategy Group, a GOP-tied firm notorious for voter fraud. The LinkedIn profile for Lincoln Strategies staffer Courtney Forrester reveals that her employer is engaged in a massive effort to recruit supporters on behalf of the coal industry. Steve Gates, communications director for ACCCE, told ThinkProgress that Lincoln Strategy Group ran their grassroots campaign last year as well.

The new firm managing the “grassroots” campaign for the coal industry has a history that distinguishes it as being one of the most notorious voter fraud organizations in the country:

Bush team denied paying Sproul
Sproul got into a bit of trouble last fall when, in certain states, it came out that the firm was playing dirty tricks in order to suppress the Democratic vote: concealing their partisan agenda, tricking Democrats into registering as Republicans, surreptitiously re-registering Democrats and Independents as Republicans, and shredding Democratic registration forms.

In any case, all the payments by the RNC to Sproul add up to a whopping $8,359,161--making it the RNC's eighth biggest expenditure of the 2004 campaign. (for its work against the Democrats in 2004)

Sproul is currently under investigation by the Oregon Attorney General's office, for altering the voter registration forms of several thousand students in that state.
   

Known fraudster hired

...... state GOPs in Florida and California have been hiring someone with a known record of allegations of voter fraud, yet they continue to pay him hundreds of thousands of dollars each, totaling millions,  

LA TIMES

   [- RNC gives Nevada $167k, next day they pay Sproul $166.6k

  - RNC gives Florida $667k, it pays Sproul $667.6k

  - Republican Parties of FL, NC, VA, NV, CO give $3.1m (July/Aug '12) to Sproul]

That's probably just the beginning of their shameful, criminal activity. They accuse Democrats of doing what they themselves are so deeply involved in--Voter Registration Fraud.

Karl Rove will be handing out many tasks of additional types of criminal election activity in order to "win" the election for the Romney team. By hook or by CROOK, and it's the crooks we have to worry about because they are busy little devils. Forget about Mitt's policy "angels." These policies are evil and anti-Democratic. They are befitting some evil, dark, corrupt dictatorship.

"cases of dead people being registered as Republican voters."

Sproul did not have to face actual prosecution in past election fraud.

 Election officials in six Florida counties are investigating what appears to be "hundreds” of cases of suspected voter fraud by a GOP consulting firm that has been paid nearly $3 million by the Republican National Committee to register Republican voters in five key battleground states, state officials tell NBC.

But the veteran GOP consultant, Nathan Sproul, who runs the firm, strongly defended his company's conduct..... blamed the alleged fraud on the actions of a few "bad apples,"

The allegations of suspected voter fraud committed by Strategic Allied Consulting of Tempe, Arizona.....

"It's kind of ironic that the dead people they accused Acorn of registering are now being done by the RPOF" [Republican Party of Florida], Lux said in an interview with NBC News.

Romney's Sproul is operating still in various battleground states: Colorado, Virginia, Nevada.
Bradblog

When the FL GOP fired Strategic Allied on Tuesday night, they noted that the firm had been hired "at the request of" the Republican National Committee. ......"similarities in the signatures and certain characteristics in the applications that were very disturbing" on registration applications collected by Sproul's firm and turned in to her office. Among the "disturbing" defects on the forms, addresses of existing registered voters changed "to commercial buildings or addresses" and, "in some places, they were changing political parties."

.... voters were likely to be disenfranchised by the effort when showing up at the polls on Election Day, only to find their address has been changed, removed or moved to another precinct entirely.

.... NC GOP had paid some $333,000 to the firm in July alone. He also discovered the company had taken steps to hide its ownership by Sproul's firm, Sproul & Associates....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
