    NC GOP Joins FL in Firing RNC’s Romney-Tied Voter Registration Firm Accused of Fraud

    • 19 desertflower

      More in Florida…by the same guy!


      Firm owned by notorious GOP operative Nathan Sproul, accused of destroying Democratic registration forms in years past, hired ‘at request of RNC’, still operating in several key swing states…

      • 20 desertflower
        September 27, 2012 at 9:56 pm

        The firm is not only tied to the FL GOP, but also to the Mitt Romney Campaign, which hired Sproul as a political consultant late last year, despite years of fraud allegations against his organizations in multiple states.

        Moreover, the firm is also reportedly operating similar voter registration operations on behalf of the Republican Party, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, in a number of key battleground states this year, including North Carolina, Virginia and Colorado. Strategic Allied has recently taken steps to hide their ownership by Sproul’s notorious firm, Sproul & Associates.

    Right after President Obama’s email today- the DCCC called me & I did donate a small amount- what I could afford today. I give to OFA every month, but I realized I hadn’t been giving as much to the other dems.

    • 22 jacquelineoboomer
      September 27, 2012 at 10:22 pm

      Up until now, I haven’t felt any great desire to give to the other Dems, because we first needed to support The Big Dem – PBO. But, now, after our magnificent convention and because we need and might be nearing realization of our dream for a blue Congress, I think it’s the perfect time – and not too late – to dig deep and share the wealth!

          Yes, it’s time, and all of the Dem candidates seem to be behind PBO now, so it’s “okay” for whoever wants to support them, to do just that. I was waiting for them to get behind him fully, as we all were, and the convention and beyond has convinced me they are smart enough to do so, at last. That’s my take, too. FORWARD!

    When visiting in Iowa this summer, my 7 year old nephew announced he did not like Mitt Romney, his reason, his campaign ads are mean. Even 7 year olds in Iowa know who is the best man to be President.

    Good Evening all wonderful family members. Do you have or know a member of one of our native tribes? I do, and Scott Browns statements really bother me, therefore I sent the following both to his senate office and election office. I think we should all be bombarding him for his and his staffs behavior.
    Attn: Senator Scott Brown

    Regarding your comments to Ms. Warren, during the course of the debate the other night
    and, your referance to her historical background.

    My Step Grand Mother is a member of the Colville Tribe here in Washington. Let me assure
    you that she may be a Colville, but, there is no way that you could pick her out
    from any other women in person or in a crowd.

    I also have a very close friend and she and her Mother are also members of the Colvilles’
    Once again, there is no way in hell they could be identified as anything
    but, American Women. In fact, they have RED hair. Would you like pictures
    to verify my statement?

    My only other comment to you, is that EVERY MEMEBER OF YOUR STAFF, who behaved like school yard bullys should be fired.
    Even more so, if, as I believe, your encouraged this behavior.

    I feel sorry for your missguided behavior, especially as a sitting Senator.

    President Barack Obama leads Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, and the two are locked in tight contests in Nevada and North Carolina, according to a new series of NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls released Thursday.
    Obama is ahead of Romney, 51 percent to 44 percent, among likely voters in New Hampshire. He also edges Romney in Nevada and North Carolina, but within the margin of error.
    In Nevada, Obama gets the support of 49 percent of likely voters and Romney gets 47 percent. In North Carolina, it’s Obama at 48 percent and Romney at 46 percent. (Among registered voters in all three states, Obama’s lead expands to 8 points in New Hampshire, 4 points in North Carolina, and a wider 7 points in Nevada.)

      Good Evening TOD Family. It has been a long day, but a lot of hope out there for POB. I was so elated to wake up this morning feeling so good thus making it possible to fulfill my obligation to do my phoning for POB.

      The people are Fired Up and they are Ready to Go and are going. Those I spoke with feel that we have solid people who will stay solid for POB. They expressed loved for him. They are aware of how we all will have to stay together and continue to support POB no matter what the polls are saying.

      So many were aware of what POB’s record looks like and most of them knew where to go and also tell others in their families where to go and find information. There were positive. There was hope within those calls. A lot of them want it to be over because they are tired of the ugly and disrespect that is put on POB daily.

      I came in and decided to see why I had weird messages from Twitter. Then while the tv was on in the background tuned to RM, and my nervous were too raw with tiredness, so I made some comments there rather than just taking my shower and relaxing. But I am fine now. And coming to my family here gave me the peace and comfort that I needed to add to my space. Good to see the Grassroots FR Pages. Thanks so much, Chips. I hope that I will get some generous shout outs to my page. Thank each of you so very much. We all are helping and making sure that POB and our dear VPOTUS will be re-elected. We can do this. So I do appreciate your generous help to finish my goal.

      Please keep me in your thoughts, meditations, and prayers for strength. I feel fine so far. My doctor was happy with the nurse’s reports, and I am a very good patient. But I need to be able to stay strong and help all of my family here to win this. Keep you faith, hope, love, peace, and whatever you are doing to help the campaign because the people I spoke with today are very interested and very grateful for our calling, donating, door to door, small group information meeting, telling them where to get information on making sure that they are registered. They were very kind with their remarks.

      I will say goodnight to Chips and to my dear family here.(((((((( I love you all so much))))))))))HZ

    CONFESSION TIME! I did a BIG A-HOLE thing. Like everyone here I’ve been giving and giving what I can. I’m fortunate so…..maxed for the primary and planning on that for the general. Getting close to it. BUT…..I….I….must say I…..for the…mmmmm….DINNER WITH BARACK… I….well……I did 12 contributions of $10 last night like a big ole friggin JERK. *SIGH* Sure want to win it though….. ;>)

    Guys, Jim Graves (@Graves4Congress), the Democrat running to unseat Michele Bachmann in the MN 6th is following me on Twitter. I’m always curious how I come to people’s attention. This one’s pretty neat!

    I’m sad that I can’t vote for him, but I sure can give him some support.

    Jim’s at a huge disadvantage money-wise: http://www.opensecrets.org/races/election.php?state=MN&cycle=2012
    But this poll had them tied earlier this month: http://minnesota.publicradio.org/collections/special/columns/polinaut/archive/2012/09/poll_graves_and.shtml

    Help him out if you can, okay?

          Thanks. I’m taking this one kind of personally. It’s embarrassing to have that awful woman on national TV talking her crazy talk. She puts the lives of our hard working State Dept employees in danger with her conspiracy theories and baseless attacks. Most Minnesotans I know are embarrassed by her except for those nutters in her own district. She must be putting something in the water over there. I hope this is the election where they finally WTFU and send her to Switzerland.

      I’m just watching it now. How offensive! I’m glad Lawrence did the segment. Nobody blames anyone for being afraid to fight in a war, or objecting a war. But, it’s quite something altogether that Mitt was supportive of the Vietnam war, actually protested IN FAVOR OF the draft and the war, and then hid out in France! It’s so highly offensive. And seeing this picture of him frolicking on the beaches in France… ugh.

      • 110 jacquelineoboomer
        September 28, 2012 at 12:01 am

        Lawrence has mentioned two details about Mormons I did not know. He said Mitt’s time in France was covered by a special deferment given to Mormons so they did not have to go to Vietnam to serve under the draft. He also mentioned that when Mitt’s grandfather returned to the U.S. from Mexico, a special law passed by Congress paved the way for Mormons who had gone there (I thought to avoid prosecution for polygamy, but not sure) to be repatriated due to the revolution or something. I only half listen to anything about Mitt, so hope that’s right. If both are right, and I presume they are close, Lawrence and his staff do their homework, since I’m not sure anybody else is talking about either case.

    Chips, thanks for the reminder about the approaching third quarter deadline. This is the time we all need to give as much as possible! And let’s not forget the DSCC and DCCC. We need to give PBO the Congress he needs.

    After watching the VA rally today I am concerned about PBO. I thought by the end he looked absolutely exhausted and his voice was off, sounds like he is fighting a cold. He has had one hell of month starting with the Convention, the amount of campaigning, the assasinations in Benghazi, the uprisings in the Middle East, the UN address, the CGI address, etc. and now the debates. I hope he uses some of the time in the next six days to get some rest. Thank God he has his personal physician with him to keep him going. But it is soooo uplifting to see the early voting in Iowa! Can’t wait. Thanks for keeping us all going here Chips! Forward!

        This was actually pretty good, and scary because it is so true. So many people are so complacent and comfortable, they’re not even thinking about what a Romney-Ryan administration would mean to them. They’re too busy just living and shopping. They need to be shaken awake. (These Jewish ads have a lot of swearing in them, don’t they? First Sarah Silverman, now this one).

    To bed with me, but not before saying how much I love the last pic of the faces of the two kids looking at PBO. That is one excellent picture.

    I love the fact that all you can see is the back of PBO’s head. He is not the focus. Rather the focus is on the reactions of those he comes in contact with and those two little bright eyed children in particular. It was perfectly cropped.

    And with that, I bid you all a GN
