3. +1. Sen Boxer and Rep. Tubbs-Jones contested the '04 Ohio Electoral vote report.

It was only the third time in US history that an objection occurred (Tilden-Hayes 1877, Nixon-Wallace 1969, are the other 2.) Their objection used U.S. Code Title 3, Chap. 1, Sec. 15. A big part of the '04 election theft they contested came from Sproul and Associates work on 'voter registration drives'.

Mark C. Miller described Sproul as the RNC's 8th largest expenditure in the '04 elections, and described Sproul's work record as 'involving fraud, deception, copyright infringement, the systematic disenfranchisement of untold thousands of Democrats and Independents, and the secretive reregistration of still further thousands of Republicans without their full consent' (p. 154, 'Fooled Again').

Sproul used bogus pre-election petition and registration drives in Ohio (and here in Pittsburgh, and all over the US), to get the info of voters, who they would then re-register to other party affiliations and other precincts. The confusion this caused at the polls helped back the lines up for hours, and resulted in thousands of provisional ballots being cast, then discarded and not counted (because the voter wasn't registered to vote where they thought they were).

"Sproul '04" made the repugs' hysterical accusations against ACORN for 'voter fraud' in '06, '08, and '09 a little hard to swallow. I wrote Maddow's show during the pimp O'Keefe fake scandal, to request that they do a show on 'Sproul vs. ACORN', because it would give the good side a chance to go on the attack and expose repug hypocrisy, while simultaneously defending ACORN against false charges.

It was icing on the cake that Sproul's people falsely used the names of progressive groups like America Coming Together and America Votes to fraudulently re-register voters, since the America Votes group was a coalition effort that included ACORN (!), along with the NAACP, NARAL, the Sierra Club, MoveOn, etc. AP reported on 9-21-04 that AV said they were filing a lawsuit to stop Sproul from misusing their name. So there actually WAS some voter fraud committed by 'ACORN', but it was really just committed by Sproul repugs while they were illegally using ACORN's name. And the fraud only benefitted the repugs.
