As reported in my earlier diary, a 23-year-old Pennsylvania man, working for a company under contract to the Republican Party of Virginia, is facing 12 felony charges and one misdemeanor charge related to his attempted destruction of completed voter registration forms.  

The investigators over at Brad Blog have now turned up connections between PinPoint (the company for which the guy in Harrisonburg worked); Strategic Allied Resources, a company run by well-known election fraudster Nathan Sproul; Karl Rove; Ed Gillispie; and, a Virginia state senator.

Details below.

For starters, let's quote liberally from the Brad Blog piece titled: "Rove's American Crossroads Shares Address, Legal Firm with Sproul's Strategic Allied Consulting."

Old Republican scam artists never die. They just create new shell corporations and rely on the fact that mainstream corporate media is unlikely to bother connecting any dots. So let's connect a few, shall we?
So they connected the dots and found:
As sharp-eyed BRAD BLOG commenter "Citizen92" noticed in those newly released documents, the "Key takeaway from this is that Strategic Allied Consulting has a business address of 45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100, Warrenton, VA."

"Who else has a business address at 45 North Hill Drive?," Citizen92 asked rhetorically, "American Crossroads, Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie's 527 group."

Indeed our good Citizen92 is correct, according to the IRS 527 filing for American Crossroads [PDF], the mailing address for Rove's outfit is also 45 North Hill Drive, Suite 100, in Warrenton, VA.

The address belongs to HoltzmanVogelJosefiak PLLC, a top RNC law firm headed up by Jill Holtzman Vogel who also now serves as a Virginia State Senator from the 27th District.

The practice areas for the firm, according to their website, include "Election Law", "Lobbying and Government Ethics" and "Tax-Exempt Organizations." Perfect.

Jill Holtzman Vogel?  Why does that name sound famliar?  Maybe it's because, as Brad Blog reports:
According to her law firm bio, managing partner Holtzman Vogel "specializes in ethics, campaign finance and tax exempt organizations. In addition to managing the firm, in February 2004, she was named Chief Counsel of the Republican National Committee. As counsel, she led the national party's legal effort during the 2004 Presidential election."

She was also on the ground for Republicans in Florida when, "During November and December of 2000, she was counsel in the Florida Presidential Recount, acting on behalf of the Bush-Cheney campaign in West Palm Beach and in Osceola County."

I know, I know . . . by now you're ready to strangle the next Republican you encounter . . . but let your disgust and anger build to an even higher fever pitch as you read this Brad Blog report on the links between the GOP and Sproul that go back to elections long past.
But there is more to the story, as evidence emerges to document that it ties in to a still-expanding nationwide GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal that The BRAD BLOG first began reporting in late September, after we'd learned that the Republican Party of Florida had turned in more than 100 allegedly fraudulent and otherwise suspect voter registration forms in Palm Beach County. The story has continued to widen ever since, to a dozen Florida counties and several other states, now including Virginia, and even to the upper-echelons of the Republican Party itself.
Now that I've violated all the fair-use quotation rules, I'll just let this sit here and simmer.

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.
