Remember Strategic Allied Consulting and it's founder, Nathan Sproul?  You know...he's the fella who got into a bit of trouble a few weeks back for voter registration fraud while working under contract for the RNC.  Well, it seems ol' Nathan isn't done yet.

Joseph Tanfani of the L.A. Times writes that Sproul is apparently still hard at work setting up Republican GOTV efforts.  He references, a North Carolina political blog, which connected some dots and found that Strategic Allied Consulting has merely morphed into a different entity called Issue Advocacy Partners and continues to operate just as if nothing happened.

Brad Friedman at does a good job bringing the whole story together.

So, what happened to the RNC's supposed "zero tolerance" policy for voter registration fraud?

(Update #1)
Hungrycoyote pointed out that Think Progress has a piece on this as well.

Just Bob posted a link to today's Tampa Bay Times piece on the release of documents related to the criminal investigation into SAC's voter fraud.

Citizendc added a link that delves in to Sproul's use of shell companies.

(Update #2)
Citizendc pointed out to Just Bob & hungrycoyote that their comments just showed that Karl Rove's American Crossroads and Sproul's Strategic Alliance Consulting both share the same address:
45 North Hills Drive
Suite 100
Warrenton, VA 20186

Nice work, folks!  Now THAT is some interesting information that I'd certainly love to hear more about

(Update #3)
here4tehbeer pointed out that the same address is used by Holtzman Vogel Josefiak PLLC, a law firm in which Jill Holtzman Vogel, the current representative to the Va. State Senate for the 27th District, is a partner.

Citizendc added that another Partner in that firm, Jason Torchinsky, is also a Lawyer for Americans for Prosperity, a Koch organization.

What a small, small world it seems to be when your mission is to pervert Democracy by any means necessary.

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.
