Now this :-)
A GOP-backed consulting firm may have submitted "hundreds" of faked voter registration forms in Florida, according to the Florida Department of State.

The GOP cut ties with the third party voter registering company Strategic Allied Consultants on Thursday after the Palm Beach County elections supervisor flagged 106 of the firm's registration forms for having similar handwriting, incorrect addresses and incomplete information.

Since then, elections officials in nine Florida counties have unearthed hundreds of possibly fraudulent registration forms.

Chris Cate, a spokesman for the Florida Department of State, said the state does not yet know the exactly how many forms were allegedly faked. While it is not unusual to get reports of incomplete registration cards, Cate said it is rare for the state to have so many forms with false or wrong information.

"We are concerned about any cases of voter fraud," Cate said. "In this case, it has to do with most allegations regarding bad information on voter applications. We don't know the extent of how it could impact election, but we will let the Florida Department of Law Enforcement determine full extent of the problem."

Strategic Allied Consultants claims the issue stemmed from one employee, who was fired on Sept. 15, but county election officials claim the fraud was more widespread, stretching across counties that are more than 500 miles apart.

"I don't subscribe to the theory that this was the action of one single individual who was able to get into more than half a dozen counties from one end of Florida to the other," said Paul Lux, the Okaloosa County Election Supervisor.

Lux said that out of 2,200 forms that Strategic Allied workers submitted, he and his staff have found about three dozen that appear to be faked. Some have signatures that do not match the names; others are only partially completed and a handful of forms have addresses that do not exist, he said.

"The problem is when you pay someone to do something like this, it kind of lends itself to what do you do to get paid?" Lux said.

The Republican Party of Florida paid Strategic Allied Consultants $1.3 million to register voters starting in July. State party spokesman Brain Burgess said the Republican National Committee asked the state party to hire the consultants and paid for the firm. Before hiring the consulting group, Burgess said Florida Republicans relied solely on volunteers to register voters.

Burgess said the party first learned about the supposed fraud more than one week after the firm fired one of its Palm Beach area workers for allegedly faking the voter forms.

Two days later the Republican National Committee cut ties with the firm and asked state party officials in four other states to do the same. Strategic Allied Consultants was registering voters on behalf of the RNC in five battleground states: Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado and Nevada.

North Carolina election authorities have flagged five possibly fraudulent forms that the GOP-backed consultant firm submitted. The state's chief election official Gary Bartlett said he believes it was an isolated incident because all five came from the same county.

No, this is much more than a "sad story" and "inexcusable behavior."

This is vicious disregard for human life that should be handled with "extreme prejudice." A drone up their asses would be too good for this scum.

Thank you for pointing out the extent of the problem.

WASHINGTON -- President Nixon didn’t have them by the White House in 1972 when they went undefeated, but the 1972-73 Miami Dolphins team got their due Tuesday, celebrating their historic season with a ceremony to mark an achievement that has yet to be eclipsed.

Thirty-one players — nearly every living member of the team —attended the White House ceremony, including legendary coach Don Shula and former assistant coach Howard Schnellenberger and former trainer Robert Lundy.

President Barack Obama said he was honoring the team because they are "all men of accomplishment and character, and it showed on the field and off the field as well."

The president, a Chicago Bears fan, joked that if he could have invited the rival Green Bay Packers to the White House after their Super Bowl victory, the Dolphins were certainly welcome after forty years.

"These Dolphins made history back before Super Bowl champs started visiting the White House," he said. "And let’s face it, this is also just a fun thing to do. I like doing it as president."

It wasn’t a common practice in the 1970s to invite championship teams, although Nixon might have been unusually distracted during the Dolphins’ historic game, which took place on Jan, 14, 1973. Although Nixon had just been re-elected, his former aides G. Gordon Liddy and James W. McCord Jr. were about to be convicted of conspiracy, burglary and wiretapping in the Watergate scandal, and his presidency was doomed.

Championship teams are frequently invited now, though. Obama, known to decompress with ESPN’s Sports Center, even shot hoops with the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team in 2009 when they visited the White House to celebrate their NCAA championship.

Obama sheepishly admitted to the Dolphins that he had already invited another team that got neglected: the 1985 Chicago Bears. The team’s victory trip to the White House had been postponed by the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger.

Shula reminded the president that the Dolphins were the only team to beat his beloved Bears that season. "We beat ’em!" shouted out one of the people attending the ceremony.

Despite the distractions he faced during the 1972-73 season, Nixon remained a huge football fan who followed the Washington Redskins team closely; he was known for calling coach George Allen to suggest plays. He did the same to Shula. The Dolphins defeated the Washington Redskins.

Perhaps the registration forms were believed to be fraudulent, in which case it would/should be a crime to submit them. The bottom line is that third-party solicitation of voter registration forms should be prohibited. Those who want to vote should take the initiative to register on their own.
The person in his link was taking the initiative.

However, it would appear you're claiming the conservative people who are signing others up are 'experts' in determining the status of people AFTER they leave.

If they were REALLY that smart, you'd think they'd do the legal thing an turn the documents of proof over to law enforcement instead of performing an illegal act.

Oh, and btw, it's interesting how the republican party quickly hired these law breakers after they were let go!

Amazing how you play all sides depending on your politics.

This is liberalism, brought to you by the democrats: Police say defenseless kittens were skewered by a 17-year-old with a bow and arrow. Lake County Indiana investigator Michelle Dvorscak showed us photos that a teen allegedly posed for and posted on Facebook, photos too gruesome to show.
“Two kittens on an arrow. One’s been shot through the head, it looks like one’s been shot through the body,” said Dvorscak.
The scene was an alley behind the boy’s home in East Chicago. Police say he took aim, hunting the cats about two weeks ago.
“He did confess. He said he was bored out of his mind the week before school started and decided to hunt some kittens,” said Dvorscak.
Police say staff at the Lake County Animal Adoption and Control Center took an anonymous call from someone complaining about the gruesome photos.
“What this anonymous caller did was the best thing. We got the tip, we found all the information,” said Yvonne Scott of the Lake County Animal Adoption and Control.
“They were horrible and horrific. And I don’t know how somebody could do that to a poor innocent kitten,” said Jennelle Melendy, of the Lake County Animal Adoption and Control.
They hope criminal charges against this teen will save other innocent animals and stop others from preying on pets.
“Juveniles who perpetrate these acts need to get therapy and need to pay for the crimes that they’ve committed,” said Dvorscak.
The prosecutor’s office is considering felony charges against this teen for abusing and killing the three kittens. The photos were removed from Facebook after several users complained.
Were I to catch that kid doing that to one of my family members, he/she would mysteriously disappear with nary a trace forever.....
