Skip to comments.ANOTHER ACORN SCANDAL (corrupt lefties in voter-financial fraud scandals)
Posted on 07/13/2008 5:42:24 AM PDT by Liz
......far-left radical activist group ACORN is embroiled in financial corruption and cover-up.... The NY Times reports that Dale Rathke - whose brother started the group back in 1970 to help low-income people - embezzled nearly $1M back in 1999 and 2000. ACORN disguised it on the books as a loan and let Rathke's family make restitution at $30,000 a year. (An anonymous donor reportedly has agreed to pick up the remaining $800,000 tab.) ACORN also kept Rathke on the payroll at $38,000-a-year.....the Times reports most of the people who covered-up the embezzlement are still working for ACORN. Michelle Malkin wrote on these pages last month, the group recently settled the largest case of voter fraud in Washington state history - submitting thousands of bogus voter-registration forms......with similar schemes in 14 other states - an Ohio worker traded crack cocaine for fraudulent registrations. ACORN's tactics included trespassing, illegal seizure of private property, physical harassment, intimidation and outright extortion.

Ugh. Why hasn’t Bush sicked the Feds on ACORN and other vote rigging groups?
The problem with that approach is that it essentially sanctions the activity of groups like ACORN. As far as I am concerned, the left will always portray us as racists no matter what we do or do not do. Basically, we have nothing to lose if we go ACORN and groups like it.
ACORN = OBAMA
Our AG Tom Corbett has done exactly that and won re-election solidly in 2006 when the Donks were sweeping just about everything else.
Corbett is great on this issue. Now what we need is a real voter ID program and stop the dead from voting in Philly. I wish Meehan would have investigated Congressman Brady.
NY Times reports?
What, on page B-27?
NY POST, the NY Times would never report thatACORN is an illegal vote fraud org....
ACORN is being investigated in Pennsylvania by local authorities (Dauphin County). It seems an awful lot of Dems got registered to vote in the Harrisburg area and something smells fishy.

Cops say lawyers ran midtown brothel (Big Apple)
A high end brothel? Why on earth am I cross linking a high end brothel to ACORN financial fraud?
This brothel funneled their money through a non profit called Voter March.
Voter March is a unified delegation of Dems, Greens, Socialists, other Radicals and ACORN community activists.
