Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Republicans were right all along: There was a voter fraud problem in Florida.
The source of that fraud wasn’t found on any purge list, however. It was imported across state lines by the fraud-hunting Republicans themselves.
The party hired Strategic Allied Consulting to register voters leading up to this year’s presidential election. They recently fired the firm when 106 registrations in Palm Beach County were flagged for being questionable. Signature irregularities, faulty Social Security numbers and voter addresses falsified using business locations were some of the trickery that tripped the alarm at the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, after the problems down south were discovered, a dozen other counties, including Lee, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Escambia, reported similar irregularities on registrations that were traced back to the Republican Party of Florida.

[Then] other states discovered fraudulent registrations, including North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada and Colorado. Now under fire, Strategic Allied Consulting founder Nathan Sproul has quietly started a new identical firm called Issue Advocacy Partners, which is operating in 10 major battleground states.
