Unbelievable. There are Federal HAVA laws against this kind of pre-filtering voter registrations -- based on who you will actually vote for.
Turns out she wasn't working for the County -- but for a shady Republican election operative instead.
As if that makes it better. IOKIYAR.

[...]Nice guys there. Not.
“I’m actually trying to register people for a particular party,” the girl tells a woman in the video, which has been viewed more than 417,000 times. Because we’re out here in support of Romney, actually.”
Strategic Allied Consulting was hired to do voter registration drives in Florida, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada, and had been planning get-out-the-vote drives in Ohio and Wisconsin, [Nathan] Sproul told the Los Angeles Times Thursday.
Reports from the Federal Election Commission show that [Nathan] Sproul’s other company, Lincoln Strategy Group, has been paid more than $80,000 by the Romney campaign to help register voters between November 2011 and March 2012 during the GOP primary season.
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.
There are Federal HAVA laws against this kind of pre-filtering voter registrations -- based on who you will actually vote for -- and Republican operative Nathan Sproul KNOWS about these laws. He's been burnt by those pesky "rules" before.
Still the Romney-Ryan Campaign, and the RNC too, sees no problem with hiring a guy with Sproul's backgound -- he's just their kind of "selective" guy.
The only problem that they have with Nathan Sproul -- is the fact that he got caught again. And now they have another PR crisis to deal with.
How many other "Nathan Sprouls" are there -- doing the job Republicans hire them for: to quietly register only Republicans, and somehow "lose" those Democratic forms, when no one is looking?
Well, how many bears are out there in the woods? And how would we know, as long as they don't become some dang PR nuisance ... at the sign-up table, down by the suburban shopping mall?
