McCain Employing GOP Operative Accused Of Voter Registration Fraud
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/1..._n_136254.html

Quote:
John McCain's campaign has directed $175,000 to the firm of a Republican operative accused of massive voter registration fraud in several states.

According to campaign finance records, a joint committee of the McCain-Palin campaign, the RNC and the the California Republican Party, made a $175,000 payment to the group Lincoln Strategy in June for purposes of "registering voters." The managing partner of that firm is Nathan Sproul, a renowned GOP operative who has been investigated on multiple occasions for suppressing Democratic voter turnout, throwing away registration forms and even, once, spearheading efforts to get Ralph Nader on ballots so as to hinder the Democratic ticket.

That Sproul would come under the employment umbrella of the McCain campaign -- the Republican National Committee has also separately paid Lincoln Strategy at least $37,000 for voter registration efforts this cycle -- is not terribly surprising. Sproul, who has donated nearly $30,000 to McCain's campaign, has been in the good graces of GOP officials for the past decade despite charges of ethical and potentially legal wrongdoing.

Hang the dirty, cheating, rotten scoundrels!!!

Now, how do you feel about the much larger problem that is ACORN?

All these frauds should be strung up, shot, drug through the streets, beheaded, and left as vulture treats.

I feel that there needs to be an investigation and whoever is at fault must be prosecuted, be it is ACORN or whoever else that is involved. Voter registration fraud is a federal offense.

I could go along with your more measured approach. But it is likely too late to stop the fraud in this election.

"According to the Mississippi Secretary of State's office, more than 1/3 of Mississippi counties have now registered more voters than they have adults eligible to vote. 29 of Mississippi's 82 counties had more regisered voters than people of voting age.".. - Lou Dobbs

It's as if this election is an American Idol contest. It's a matter of how many times a viewer votes, not how many individuals vote for the contestants. The girl who votes 152 times has 152 times as much pull in the election as the guy who votes one time.

Seriously, if there was ANY truth to this allegation, wouldn't McCain/Palin be all over it?

YES! as well as a zellot. He says he's an independent, but he's clearly a right winger on a crusade. He wouldn't know an unbiased point of view if it bit him in the ass.

Do you also call the AP reporter a liar?
Miss., Ala. counties have more voters than adults

By EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS 5 days ago

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) More than a third of Mississippi counties have more registered voters than residents old enough to cast a ballot, according to an Associated Press analysis.

"There is no reason in the world why some of these counties should have more registered voters than they have living, breathing people," Mississippi Senate Elections Committee Chairman Terry Burton said.

Twenty-nine of Mississippi's 82 counties had more registered voters than people of voting age. Alabama has a similar problem The Birmingham News found that six of 67 counties there have more registered voters than people of voting age.

He said people could theoretically vote, then go back and try to pass themselves off as people who have died, though he does not expect that. In Mississippi, only first-time voters who registered by mail must show identification. Without an ID requirement, election officials must rely on poll workers and voters to be honest.

In five Mississippi counties with inflated rolls, the discrepancy can be explained by rapid population growth. In the rest, the population has grown slowly or remained stagnant.

Larry Gardner, chairman of the Election Commissioners Association of Mississippi, attributed some inflated voter rolls to commissioners who "are not doing their job."

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann's office compiled its own list of 24 counties with more registered voters than people of voting age. All are also on AP's list.

Hosemann said his staff has been working with election commissioners, showing them, for example, how to check Health Department records so they can purge dead voters' names.
