GOP consultant Nathan Sproul, a former leader with the Arizona Republican Party and the Arizona Christian Coalition, heads up Lincoln Strategy Group (formerly called Sproul and Associates) and was hired by the Republican Party to manage the controversial Strategic Allied Consulting in 2008 onward to 2012. Getting millions from the Republican Party to set up voter registration drives and having been suspected of destroying Democratic registration forms and only registering Republicans, Sproul’s efforts are now under scrutiny.
Strategic Allied Consulting was hired to do voter registration drives in Florida, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina and Nevada, and had been planning get-out-the-vote drives in Ohio and Wisconsin, according to Sproul. Lincoln Strategy Group, another Sproul company, was paid about $70,000 by Mitt Romney’s campaign during the primaries to gather signatures.
In Florida’s Palm Beach County, election officials turned over 106 forms to prosecutors after discovering forgeries and other problems. Officials in other counties are now reviewing voter registration forms turned in by the state GOP.
Sproul said he created Strategic Allied Consulting at the RNC’s request because the party wanted to avoid being publicly linked to the past allegations. The firm was set up at a Virginia address, and Sproul does not show up on the corporate paperwork.
Sproul has also used astroturf companies with names like “Grassroots Outreach” and “Voter Outreach”, “Lincoln Park Strategies” all which share the same telephone number (480) 303-7175 or other metadata.
