Cummings Probes RNC Voter Registration Fraud Allegations

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) has launched an investigation into Strategic Allied Consulting and GOP consultant Nathan Sproul, who ran a voter registration drive on behalf of the Republican National Committee that turned in fraudulent applications.

Cummings asked Sproul on Monday to provide copies of all contracts and correspondence with the RNC, state political parties and other entities as well as all documents used for their voter registration training and any information about irregularities. The RNC cut off its relationship with the group last week after the allegations emerged.

“Instead of the RNC having ‘zero tolerance’ for voter fraud, you claimed that RNC officials asked you to form your new company, Strategic Allied Consulting, in June for the specific purpose of concealing your connections to these previous allegations,” Cummings wrote in a letter to Sproul. “In a blunt concession, you reportedly stated that you ‘created Strategic Allied Consulting at the request of the Republican National Committee because of the bad publicity stemming from past allegations’.”
