The Right is in full swing with voter-supression efforts. To quote this linked post:
But, but ACORN!
In Colorado, a young woman employed by Strategic Allied was shown on a video outside a store in Colorado Springs recently telling a potential voter that she wanted to register only Republicans and that she worked for the county clerk’s office.The owner of Strategic Allied Consulting, a Nathan Sproul, has been suspected of systematic fraud in the past. In 2004, he was investigated by the Justice Department and the Attorneys General of Oregon, Arizona, and Nevada for “widespread” voter fraud. He was previously Executive Director of the Arizona Republican Party. It is inconceivable that neither the RNC nor the various state parties were unaware of his history when they hired him to do the very job that triggered investigations in the past. SAC tops the Florida State Republican Party expenditure list for 2012. They had to know what they were buying.
Of course, there is no real comparison to ACORN. Unlike Sproul’s outfits, the non-partisan community organizing group was never hired by the Democratic Party to do voter registration work. Moreover, it was ACORN themselves who discovered fraud by a handful of its more than ten thousand workers and notified officials of the fraud and the names of those who had defrauded them.
