NBC News reports on Strategic Allied Consulting, a firm hired to register Republican voters that is now under investigation in two Florida counties for possible fraud. 

Strategic Allied Consulting, a firm run by veteran GOP consultant Nathan Sproul, had been retained by the RNC and state Republican parties to register new GOP voters in five key battleground states, said Sean Spicer, communications director for the RNC. 


But Spicer said that the party's relationship with the firm -- which has been paid $2.9 million by the RNC so far this year, according to federal elections records -- has now been terminated in light of alleged voter fraud, linked to one of the firm's employees, that was reported this week to Florida prosecutors by election officials in Palm Beach County.  

Sproul has been investigated in the past on allegations that he tried to suppress Democratic turnout and throw away voter registration forms.
