Romney Campaign Volunteer Says She Works For Clerk's Office, But Only Registering Romney Voters (VIDEO)
A video uploaded to YouTube on Friday depicting a young woman registering voters in El Paso County, Colorado claiming she works for the clerk's office, but is only registering voters who support Mitt Romney has gone viral over the weekend.


The person recording the video exits a Safeway grocery store and a young woman who is registering voters outside the store asks her, "Are you voting for Romney or Obama?"
The woman recording responds, "Well, wait, I thought you were registering voters a minute ago."
To which the young woman replies, "I am." The person recording then asks, "Well, who are you registering? All voters?"

"Well, I'm actually trying to register people for a particular party. Because we're out here in support of Romney, actually," the young woman registering voters says.

"And who is paying you for this?" The video recorder asks.

"We're working for the County Clerk's Office," the young woman replies with some hesitation and confusion.

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams disavowed the young woman's statements that she was registering voters on behalf of Williams' office. "The statement made in this video is both unfortunate and inaccurate," Williams said in a statement. "My office does not and will not engage in partisan voter registration. It is the duty of the Clerk’s office to ensure that elections are conducted in a fair and honest manner, this includes allowing any one to register to vote regardless of their political party affiliation."

According to 9News, the young woman registering voters outside of the Safeway store was a volunteer for the Romney campaign who has since been spoken to by the campaign about her actions.
It's unclear if the young woman in the video was only registering Romney voters, but if that were the case, it would be illegal if she were doing so on behalf of the County Clerk's office. It would also be illegal to deny a person registration based on their survey answers, which isn't entirely clear if that would have occurred in the video above either.

The El Paso County Clerk's Office has requested that the video be removed from YouTube because it contains inaccurate information, but the person who uploaded the video has refused to do so.

Fucking moron. Like each party does not have voter registration drives. Remember the ACORN debacle in 08? Show someone filling out multiple or fraudulent registrations, or stuffing ballot boxes with fake votes, then we might give a shit. Til then, eat some tofu you flannel faggot.

But I am glad that your stupid football team beat the Cowboys and Packers.

This is some Al Sharpton type outrage bullshit. Where's the illegal act in all of this? Oh right, there is none.

Edit to add: And since when does a "viral" video have only 400K views in almost a week's time? Jesus dude, your thread and story fails on multiple levels. Dig deeper bitch.

Yes but its ILLEGAL for a Romney employee/volunteer to pose as an official from the County Clerk's office. She said the Clerk was paying her. She lied.

Whenever I see a story about some scandal or corruption within the Romney campaign, I think about what the responses here would be if it was Democrats and Obama. I'm guessing Don and Begbie wouldn't be nearly as reserved or defensive over "isolated incidents" and "overzealous staffers".

One dizzy broad outside of a grocery store is "scandal and corruption within the Romney campaign"?

GOP fires vendor after questionable registrations

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans on Thursday fired a vendor suspected of submitting 108 questionable new voter registrations in Florida's Palm Beach County, ground zero for disputed ballots in 2000's presidential race.
The Republican Party of Florida used Virginia-based Strategic Allied Consulting to help register and turnout voters in Florida, one of a shrinking handful of states President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are contesting. The Florida state party had paid the firm more than $1.3 million so far, and the Republican National Committee used the group for almost $3 million of work in Nevada, North Carolina, Colorado and Virginia.
"We have zero tolerance for any threat to the integrity of elections. When we were informed of an alleged incident we immediately cut all ties to the company," RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer said.
The state party similarly sought to distance itself from the firm and its main operative, Nathan Sproul.
"We immediately informed the Republican National Committee that we were terminating the contract with the voter-registration vendor we hired at their request because there is no place for voter-registration fraud in Florida," state Republican Party Executive Director Mike Grissom said in a statement.
Strategic Allied Consulting said the suspected forms came from one person and the company was cooperating with elections officials in Florida.
"Strategic has a zero-tolerance policy for breaking the law," said Fred Petti, a company attorney. "Accordingly, once we learned of the irregularities in Palm Beach County, we were able to trace all questionable cards to one individual and immediately terminated our working relationship with the individual in question."
The company did not identify the individual.
Polls show Obama increasing his lead over Romney in Florida, a hard-fought state that hosted the GOP's convention last month. If Romney were to lose Florida and its 29 electoral votes, he would have to sweep other battleground states of Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado, Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire to win the White House.
Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher's staff noticed signatures that looked alike and incomplete forms submitted on Sept. 5 by Strategic Allied Consulting. Bucher met with prosecutors on Monday to request an investigation.
Palm Beach County was at the center of the ballot recount in 2000, with George W. Bush and Al Gore both contesting the results that seemed to give Reform Party nominee Pat Buchanan an unusually strong showing. Critics — and legions of attorneys — said the ballot design led many Gore supporters to cast votes for Buchanan.
The subsequent questions that arose about how ballots should be tabulated made their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which settled the bitter contest in a 5-4 ruling barring a ballot recount. Bush won.
Sproul, a longtime GOP operative who leads Strategic Allied Consulting, previously worked for Romney's campaign through a separate firm, Lincoln Strategy Group. Romney spokeswoman Sarah Pompei says the campaign has not used Sproul since 2011, when the campaign was using Lincoln to collect signatures to get on primary ballots.
The deadline to register in Florida for Nov. 6's election is Oct. 9.
Aaaaand go.

If that happens, we'll still have to listen to Barack Obama for another 4 years. Either way, the future's looking pretty bleak.
Even worse. We'll have to listen to Wackbag talk about Barack Obama for another 4 years.

Umm, if this were a democratic broad it would be front and centre on Drudge everyday.

Remember that lying bitch:




Hell anything at all to make Obama look bad is on that site and this lying slut doesn't even get a mention...

The conservative Site ignores some dummy at a grocery store. The liberal news ignores blatant lies from the current administration, voter fraud, and any minority conservative. Well call it even.
