Suspicious Voter Registration Forms Found in 10 Florida Counties
LATimes ^

Posted on 09/30/2012 5:23:40 AM PDT by chessplayer

WASHINGTON — Florida elections officials said Friday that at least 10 counties have identified suspicious and possibly fraudulent voter registration forms turned in by a firm working for the Republican Party of Florida, which has filed an election fraud complaint with the the state Division of Elections against its one-time consultant.

The controversy in Florida -- which began with possibly fraudulent forms that first cropped up in Palm Beach County -- has engulfed the Republican National Committee, which admitted Thursday that it urged state parties in seven swing states to hire the firm, Strategic Allied Consulting.The RNC paid the company at least $3.1 million -- routed through the state parties of Florida, Nevada, Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia -- to register voters and run get out the vote operations. Wisconsin and Ohio had not yet paid the firm for get-out-the-vote operations it was contracted to do.

Axelrod’s work for certain.

He want’s to put the vote in doubt before the election, to draw it out in the event the chosen one loses in a close election.

Read somewhere that this company that they hired conducted voter registration for the Democrates last election. What on earth were they thinking hiring this company? I have been working with the Republican Party of our county for 6 mos. we have been getting the vote out and canvassing. We didn’t need a stinking company to do it. I agree it is going to be 2000 all over again, but worse because we have more extremists in our midst.

turned in by a firm working for the Republican Party of Florida

Seems to be a lot of that this time around and the GOP better be downright brutal in dealing with it.

How do they know whether the company they hired is not working for the other side?

I guess the big question is - and I hope it is in place - does Preibus have a plan for all precincts to have Pubbie monitors at all polls, including the inner city, Black Panther districts?

Discrepancies on rolls, Dems assuming identities of the dead is gonna be big, and unless we do have a plan to monitor, a tree will have fallen in the woods, but we weren’t there to hear it and as such, it made no noise we can prove.

This election is going to suck.
If Obie wins he will go scorched earth on us.
If we win, his minions will go scorched earth on us and there may be riots.
What are we to do?
Bring it.

Fire whoever is involved and go on. Republicans do not need to cheat to win. Although Democrats believe we cheat with the electronic machines, but they never accused us of cheating with the paper ballots or registration. We must have a higher standard than the Democrats. I know we didn't pick a guy better then the Democrats for President but I was hoping that it was an autonomy.

Good Grief....all we need is the GOP giving the DNC ammo to claim “Voter Fraud”.

My home state GOP is getting butt-stupid. First we send a Hispano-Racist to the Senate (replacing another Hispano-Racist), claim he is a “conservative”....we have a GOP Gov and AG pandering to the Black Racists to lynch an innocent man...and now dealing w a company who may have committed vote fraud.

Just more of the shenanigans of the establishment political class. Have you not figured it out yet? Both sides of the political elites play us against each other for their own personal gains. I would be more interested in going through the internals of this company to find out who really owns them or who is their biggest benefactor.

I think I ran into some of these people canvassing folks waiting in line to attend the Romney/Ryan rallye in Jacksonville right after the convention. Being a Poll Worker myself, I did notice the forms were not like the ones I had used when I canvassed my neighborhood.

My God, the RNC are stuck on stupid, aren’t they? Why in the world do they feel it necessary to hire a firm to register voters to begin with? Then, why the HELL would they hire the same firm which was scandalized in the last election with the Democrats?

GOP is a complete joke. Time for a third Party.

It is amazing that no one checks into the internals of these companies. Who or what owns them. I agree with you on that. I have not seen these forms, but my daughter works in Tallahassee in the Board of Elections division. I am going to ask her about it. See if she knows what is going on.

Read the article. They’re not “fraudulent” - they suffer from paperwork errors, such as no checkmark in the party affiliation box, a person who didn’t use his middle initial in signing, etc. The Dems are poring over them, and this firm was careless. It didn’t have its employees check them carefully, and nobody at the GOP headquarters checked them before sending them in.

The Dems did this in 2004, too, when we used all volunteers for voter registration, and they terrified these little old lady volunteers by sending them legal letters saying that they would be held liable for “voter fraud” in the registrations. We had to check every form twice before sending it in to the county clerk.

They would have done so anyway, but this just makes it easier for them to do it. Definitely not good with only 5 weeks to go. Even if Romney wins FL by a big margin, I imagine obama will challenge the results.

Don’t know about Cincy (since I escaped from there in 1971 when the Army joined me)(Greenhills)

. . but here in Florida, the state passed a law that limits to 50% the number of Poll Workers that can be personally requested as members of the same family by the Precinct Manager of those who pass the training. The rest will be appointed by the Supervisor of Elections for that county. Here in Duval, the people who check in the voters and verify their registration status with their photo ID with a signature are called Investigators. Our SoE has his own rule that the number of Investigators will be balanced between the Parties and the opposing balance will be appointed by the SoE.

The two people appointed as Republicans in the minority precinct we work are also part of the original organizers of the local Tea Party group.

FLORIDA
Affiliation with Political Party Requirement and Process for Nomination as Poll Worker
No affiliation required. At least 20 days before election the county supervisor of elections appoints election board, comprised of clerks and inspectors, for each precinct.
Fla. Stat. §102.012(1) (Thomson/West 2006).
No election board can consist solely of members of one party, unless it’s a primary where only one party has candidates on ballot, and then all workers may be members of that party.
Fla. Stat. §102.012(2) (Thomson/West 2006).

It seems that we’re talking about who’s cheating but not remembering who’s counting!!

Soros Spanish firm will count our election results. That’s Stalin’s ace in the hole.

Paraphrasing Stalin: The votes don’t count; it’s who counts the vote.

I suspect they may find the same in the other 57 counties. However they need to dig deeper as I doubt it’s only the Repub hired gun that could be turning in questionable forms.

Suspicious Voter Registration Forms Found in 10 Florida Counties

This story is nothing more than the liberal media trying to gain immunization for the democrats from voter fraud charges. They, the media and the democrats will be able to point to this incident and this story as, "well, the republicans do it too, and fraud occurs on all sides".

But, as the media and most Americans know, the preponderance of voter fraud occurs on the democrats' side, and the number of voter fraud cases is likely skewed massively towards democrats.

So, the democrats and their liberal media friends have will have overblown this story to death, in order to make it appear as the republicans too, practice voter fraud. The one with the most readers and listeners and watchers, tends to win the battle of dueling stories, and the liberals are using their media advantage to the utmost.

From the linked story:

Most were changes in current registrations filed in the names of real voters, but signatures were spelled differently than the applicants’ names. Fake house numbers were given, and date of births did not match the names. The biggest red flag was that most of the forms were missing Social Security numbers.

...

But if fraudulent forms changing the addresses of actual voters are inadvertently processed, they could create obstacles at the polls. If someone’s address is changed within the same county, they could still cast a ballot once poll workers were able to establish that the voter was in the correct precinct.

“It’s another step the clerk, the poll worker and the voter would have to go through in order to cast a vote,” Davis said.

Things would get more complicated if a voter’s address has been changed to another county. If that were the case, the voter would be forced to cast a provisional ballot, which would be evaluated later in the week by a local canvassing board.

This is being portrayed as Republicans attempting to cheat in order to gain an unfair advantage at the polls.

The truth is just the opposite.

By submitting registration form with errors for already registered Republicans, the intended result appears to be to cause problems at the polls for those already registered Republicans.

Lost in the hysteria...

“...the Republican Party of Florida, which has filed an election fraud complaint with the the state Division of Elections against its one-time consultant. “

So the party filed a complaint against it’s own consultant
and now there’s a big kerfluffle?

I don’t get it.
