    What the eff Florida peoples?

    This state sucks.

    But the corruption would fall in to the other 4 states that use this company, too.

    It looks like Colorado and North Carolina have also terminated their contracts with Sproul. Isn't this exactly what ACORN did? Fraudulently fill out voter registration cards?

    When liberals do it, the news media grabs the broom and sweeps it under the rug. ACORN more or less got away with it- - - -just changed their name and kept on going with the same shenanigans. "Nothing to see here, folks- - - - -just move along!"

    I can't get too fired up about this sort of "voter fraud". Virtually all these bogus applications get caught by the states when they check the info before issuing the registration. No one is actually trying to vote on these bogus registrations. More than likely people getting paid by the registration form filling out a pile of them. Much easier than actually going out and doing their job.

    "The suspected fraud included apparent cases of dead people being registered as Republican voters, said Paul Lux, the supervisor of elections in Okaloosa County and a Republican. He compared the suspected fraud to the alleged acts of ACORN, the liberal activist group that became the center of a national controversy several years ago."


    Those boneheads....Don't they know that dead people only vote democratic?

    Seriously, if this is what it appears to be, why shouldn't somebody (or multiple somebodys) go to jail??

    Yeah, this is registration fraud. If you fill in a registration card for Smith Smitherson who doesn't exist, it's stupid and illegal, but it isn't going to impact the election. Now, if someone shows up and tries to vote as Smith Smitherson, that's voter fraud and a much bigger issue. But both with ACORN and here, they're just filling in fake cards.
    Don't get me wrong, it's still bad, but they're really just screwing the campaign, since no one is going to show up to vote. Now, if someone does show up with a falsified voter card, THEN you're screwing the country.
