Fascinating. Employees of Voters Outreach of America, a GOP-funded voter registration outfit operating in Nevada, say they personally witnessed
company employees shredding hundreds or even thousands of Democratic registrations. Now the same company (VOA) is being accused of destroying
Democratic registration forms in Oregon.
The head of VOA is Nathan Sproul, a Republican political consultant who used to be the executive director
of the Arizona state Republican party.
In gaining access to venues to register voters, he has apparently been claiming
that his group is part of America Votes
, a voter education and registration groups put together by a consortium of Democrat-leaning groups like the AFL-CIO, Emily's List, the Sierra Club and others.
A quick scan of Nexis shows Sproul's outfit is also operating in West Virginia (see Charleston Gazette
, August 20th), where they've already raised some controversy for misleading tactics if not destroying legally valid registrations.
