AND FROM THE CONNECTICUT POST: ACORN's voter registrations questioned

[hurry and read it online for yourself, this paper isn't known for keeping articles, especially ones like this, online for long]

HARTFORD -- The State Elections Enforcement Commission has opened an investigation into allegations that a community activist organization submitted at least 10 false voter-registration cards in Bridgeport.

One of the phony registrations was for a 7-year-old girl in the Marina Village housing complex, whose age was listed as 27 on the voter card.

Another registration came from a man who later said he couldn't have completed the voter card purported to be his because he was in jail on the date of the document.

Joseph J. Borges, the city's Republican registrar of voters, filed the complaint with state officials after months of local complaints on the tactics that ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, was regularly filing applications that were ruled ineligible.
...
The charges date back to the summer, when the Connecticut Post reported that ACORN applications were flooding the registrar's office and resulting in excessive extra hours of research to check their authenticity.

"We have many more complaints," Borges said Tuesday, adding that the 10 are just highlights. He said he went to Marina Village personally and interviewed the 7-year-old.
"I talked with the guardian and said I was just trying to verify the name and the girl came down the stairs,"
Borges said, adding that the Social Security number was different and the youth was definitely not 27, as indicated on the voter card.

ACORN filed more than 8,000 voter cards in the city during its registration drive, but Borges said the piles of cards are riddled with duplicates and false information that was found by him and his staff.

Borges submitted evidence including the registration of a Stratford woman who said she was "pressured" into completing a card with a Bridgeport address. Another registration contained two voters registration forms with different signatures for the same person. "We have three boxes of returned letters, with no such address, no such name," Borges said. "It's crazy."

On his complaint, Borges said the flood of ACORN-generated voter cards "has put a strain on my office and jeopardizes our ability to enter legitimate registration cards."

Now here comes the requisite elitist-discriminator charge, the race-card playing, where liberals attack anyone who brings their criminal activity to light:
In response, a Bridgeport leader of ACORN on Tuesday night called the charges "part of a concerted and coordinated campaign by conservatives and the GOP to attack and discredit ACORN...It is shameful that partisan, right-wing operatives -- who are clearly afraid of our ability to bring low-income people to the polls on election day -- are more interested in slinging trumped-up allegations at ACORN than in working with us in our campaigns to stop foreclosures and predatory lending, win paid sick days, raise the minimum wage, and make sure that low-income, working families have a seat at the table in our democracy," she said.

MEANWHILE...

As for other states, read how the entire starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys NFL football team registered to vote in Nevada, including Tony Romo, their quarterback.

Even Hillary Clinton filed complaints to the FBI about ACORN's fraudulent voter efforts on Obama's behalf. (read down to "Comment by BARB | 2008-07-12")

In New Mexico, ACORN appears to be using Cuban nationals to withhold certain registrations till a deadline passed. Watch the local news story on it:

I wouldn't be surprised if those unsubmitted cards are from voters who registered Republican.

ACORN voter fraud in Connecticut, Nevada, Missouri, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, North Carolina, New Mexico, Michigan, Texas.

WHAT DOES OBAMA REALLY HAVE TO DO WITH "ACORN"?

Obama's ties to ACORN have been documented in the LA Times, Obama's own website, and elsewhere, despite the fact that some of the original sites have been "scrubbed clean" of any mentions linking his involvement. There are details and links here and here.

"Barack Obama helped run an ACORN unit, represented them as an attorney, and is now a client of ACORN."

How is he a client of ACORN? I'd bet most Democrat voters didn't know that. And I'll bet they really don't care, especially since, just today, "The Obama campaign reacted this afternoon, saying, it is 'committed to protecting the integrity of the voting process and said it has not worked with ACORN during the general election.'"

Of course, they said that, and of course, you believe them.

Contrary to that Obama campaign statement, Obama paid ACORN $800,000 to drum up new voters for him as he has been running for President, "payments his campaign failed to accurately report," according to Investor's Business Daily.

Whether it happened during the general election campaign or the primary campaign, Democrat voters would R O A S T a Republican alive if s/he were caught redhanded like that.

Go read the legal case (with Obama's name on it) defending ACORN and the law that allowed this voter fraud to happen in the past 13 years....

ACORN'S LAWYER

Don't believe that Obama worked for ACORN as their lawyer in the early 1990s? Here is some proof:
ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS FOR REFORM NOW (ACORN), et al., Plaintiffs-Appellees,
v.
James R. EDGAR, in his official capacity as Governor of the
State of Illinois, et al., Defendants-Appellants.

Nos. 95-1800, 95-1801, 95-1802 and 95-1803.

United States Court of Appeals,
Seventh Circuit.

Argued May 8, 1995.
Decided June 5, 1995.

Judson H. Miner, Jeffrey Cummings, Barack H. Obama, Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, Chicago, IL, for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), et al., Plaintiffs-Appellees in No. 95-1800.

The National Voter Registration Act of 1993, 42 U.S.C. Secs. 1973gg et seq., popularly known as the "motor voter" law, is designed to make it easier to register to vote in federal elections. To achieve this end, the Act intrudes deeply into the operation of state government. Among the provisions most disturbing to the...
The state of Illinois in this case defended against the "motor voter" law which, among other loosening of controls, "requir[ed] the state to create a mail-order form for registering to vote in such elections that does not require notarization."

You can't register a new business in any town or city without having personalized, signed documents notarized. You cannot sign your will without a notary public being present, witnessing it and signing it.

Why, then, should someone be allowed to vote without proving they are who they say they are and signing that registration in the presence of an official? There are other, better ways to help those register who have difficulty getting around.

A notary public in New York State can only charge $2. Pennsylvania and Texas can charge as much as $6. If it's the six bucks, there are ways to help provide that.

Unless someone is bedridden or can't leave their house for medical reasons, there is really no excuse. They can make it to the bank to cash a check, to a job, to MickeyD's, to a doctor appointment or to a movie or a casino? They can get to town hall to sign a voter card.

Portions of that law, then, clearly "make it more difficult for the state to fight vote fraud."

Obama and ACORN fought in favor of making it more difficult to fight vote fraud.

I'll say it again: Obama and ACORN fought in favor of making it more difficult to fight vote fraud.

I guess Governor Pete Wilson of California was correct: the moter voter law that Obama and ACORN fought for did "increase voter fraud, encouraging ineligible people (including undocumented immigrants) to vote."

And which President signed that bill into law? Bill Clinton, in May 1993.

As I've sometimes thought when watching certain, regional-favorite, uber-competitive high school athletes bend and even break rules in order to win while certain biased referees let them get away with it on playing fields,

"Anybody can win when you have the refs in your pocket."

(Watch, this will bring out all those who still think the Supreme Court and Bush "stole the last election", when even the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, CNN and Associated Press reported that wasn't true)

Remember: ACORN voter fraud in Connecticut, Nevada, Missouri, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, North Carolina, New Mexico, Michigan, Texas.


BUT ILLINOIS ISN'T IN THAT LIST

Missouri, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa. Four of the 5 states sharing a land border with Illinois.

Don't even try to argue that ACORN in Illinois has been or is now the squeaky-clean, innocent bystander of that bunch.

And please don't even try to argue that Obama didn't know any of this news, that the warning was sounded 13 years ago.

I'll let this Clinton supporter, from a Clinton-supportive website, have the last word here:

Mary Leiby September 14, 2008 9:54 PM
I would have voted for Barney the purple dinosaur had the Republicans had him on their ticket.I am not voting FOR McCain/Palin,but AGAINST Obama/Biden. My vote will no longer be held hostage by the Democratic party in lieu of Rowe V. Wade and Supreme Court appointments. This year,I vote country before party,and will from now on.We were thrown away by our own party,of which I have been a voting member of for 22 years.The voter and caucus fraud that the Obama campaign participated in was disgusting.I witnessed it first hand,as did countless people I know personally.For any woman to call herself a "Good Democrat" and still vote for this fraud is a an American travesty. Had Obama been vetted as seriously as Sarah Palin is being,we would not be having this discussion and the nominees would be Clinton/Biden,as they should be. I am sick of being told I am angry,bitter,uneducated and that there are tens of thousand of votes to replace mine.Good luck with that.
