The Republican Party of Florida is dumping a firm it paid more than $1.3 million to register new voters, after Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher flagged 106 "questionable" registration applications turned in by the contractor this month.
Yesterday, Michael Isikoff reported that the registration troubles had spread:
NBC News has learned that four other Florida counties have also reported hundreds of possible fraudulent registration forms submitted by the firm, including apparent dead people being registered as new voters. Prosecutors in two counties are investigating possible voter fraud by the GOP consulting firm, officials said.
(To this day, Fox treats misaddressed voter registration forms as "fraud.") But this morning, Kilmeade and his guests made no mention of the fact that the Republican Party was just forced to fire a consulting firm for submitting potentially bogus voter registration forms; forms being reviewed by local law enforcement.
It seems yet again Fox is proving it is anything but Fair and Balanced. Florida is an important swing state for the election and this is an unconscionable act on the part of the GOP. If you remember ACORN was headline news for fox and this draws many parallels but seems hardly newsworthy to them.
At Fox News, the hotbed for "voter fraud" stories, the embarrassing news from Florida is of little concern.

I started a thread on the same topic when it was limited to a few rogue employees and one county. Last I saw it is six counties but I did not mention FOX news in my thread so here is hoping you have better luck than me. Republicans are not interested in actual fraud. They are only interested in purging voters from lists.

Huh? All I'm saying is it's not like Republican fraud is anything new and the fact that people ignore Republican fraud, or Democrat, is also nothing new, hence that's why I said look at Ron Paul and the past primary battles. So I can only bring up certain fraud that you agree with? Sorry but it don't work that way.
Bottom line, Republicans or Democrats, they're both one in the same and completely full of BS.edit on 29-9-2012 by Swills because: (no reason given)
