Breaking: Voter Fraud Scheme Discovered!
Breaking news today, as a conspiracy to commit voter fraud has been uncovered! At last, real evidence that the Republican Party’s claims of widespread voter fraud are not just hallucinations!
So which evil scheming liberal group is responsible? Is it the dreaded ACORN?
Well, actually, it’s the Republican National Committee.
WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee has abruptly cut ties to a consulting firm hired for get-out-the-vote efforts in seven presidential election swing states after Florida prosecutors launched an investigation into possible fraud in voter registration forms.
Working through state parties, the RNC has sent more than $3.1 million this year to Strategic Allied Consulting, a company formed in June by Nathan Sproul, an Arizona voting consultant. Sproul has operated other firms that have been accused in past elections of improprieties designed to help Republican candidates, including dumping registration forms filled out by Democrats, but none of those allegations led to any criminal charges.
Sean Spicer, spokesman for the RNC, said the party, has “zero tolerance” for voter fraud and cut ties to the firm on Wednesday, urging state parties to do the same. The forms in question in Florida were all submitted by one worker and were not the result of an effort to suppress votes, he said.
