Republican-affiliated group under investigation for voter fraud in Oregon, Nevada

The Oregon attorney general's office has opened a criminal investigation into possible voter fraud by employees of a Republican contractor. A Sproul & Associates canvasser told TV reporters he had been instructed to register only Republicans and he might destroy Democratic registration forms, Newsday reports.

Meanwhile, a similar investigation is being conducted in Nevada.

CBS writes:

"Acccording to KLAS-TV, a former employee claimed hundreds, if not thousands, of Democratic registration forms were destroyed by a Sproul & Associates group called Voters Outreach of America.

The former employee first told local Nevada reporters that he had personally witnessed his boss shredding eight to ten voter registration forms, according to Steve George, a spokesman for the Nevada Secretary of State."

These stories are so frightening. Why aren't these things being reported loudly and often on the mainstrean television news programs?

Why report about voter fraud when you can talk about verbal gaffes or the Peterson trial? The mainstream media does cover these things... if they're generating enough attention outside the mainstream media. But as you say, they don't do it loudly and often enough. For me, the electronic balloting system is particularly troublesome. I hope there are some aggressive reporters on the ground come election day.
