Complaint alleges Sproul played a role

The complaint also alleged illegal coordination by GOP consultant Nathan Sproul, who worked for BLA during the campaign. Dybus accused Sproul of providing regular campaign advice to both BLA and Horne himself, and credited him with securing the $350,000 contribution from RSLC, which was co-founded by Republican operative Karl Rove.
