Virginia Dems ask Justice Dep't. to investigate GOP firm for alleged voter fraud


It has now been widely reported for some time that Strategic Allied Consulting was hired to register voters in Florida, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada. Mitt Romney paid political consultant and longtime GOP operative Nathan Sproul owns the firm.

It has also been widely reported that Strategic Allied Consulting has been engaging in fraudulent GOP registration efforts.

Someone do something already! Oh wait:

The Hill: Several Virginia Democrats have asked the Justice Department to investigate allegations of voter fraud surrounding a GOP firm working in the Old Dominion and other battleground states.

Reps. Jim Moran, Bobby Scott and Jerry Connolly say recent allegations of registration fraud by Strategic Allied Consulting in Florida — combined with last week's voter-fraud arrest of a Republican operative linked to the firm in Virginia — merit a federal probe to determine if the episodes "are connected and constitute a broader conspiracy of voter registration fraud." [...]

Founded this year by longtime Republican strategist Nathan Sproul, Strategic Allied Services was paid millions of dollars by the Republican Party to manage get-out-the-vote efforts in swing states including Florida, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada.[...]

"While the Republican National Committee and five state committees have severed their relationship with Strategic Allied Consulting, we are concerned that the alleged illegal practices may be continuing under its subsidiary Pinpoint," the lawmakers wrote to Holder.

It's about time someone gets busted for all these repeated attempts to suppress the vote. And it's about time we nationalize our voting laws.
