Skip to comments.BREAKING: Word in Chicago: Patrick Fitzgerald heading RICO investigation of ACORN and BHO campaign
Posted on 10/08/2008 11:40:53 PM PDT by Anti-Hillary
Tonight we talked to someone who works in the federal courts here in Chicago.
The buzz in those corridors is that federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has been leading a team of FBI investigators in 10 states working on a RICO case.
Today, it was announced that ACORN is being investigated in 10 states.
Thats one Hell of a coincidence.
We asked why Fitzgerald would be involved in this, because hes the prosecutor on the Tony Rezko case and we arent aware of ACORN being investigated in Illinois.
We were told that ACORN was investigated in Illinois years ago, and it was a Fitzgerald case then. This means ACORNs activities today, involving a conspiracy to commit multi-state voter fraud on SoetorObamas behalf, are an extension of that previous ACORN case.
Our source in federal courts said, Any crime that involves more than two people and is carried out across state lines qualifies as a corrupt organization. The fact that those Goodwill donations were made in Texas and received at Obama headquarters in Chicago or Washington means it qualifies for RICO.
The Goodwill donations referred to above are the $228 million in undocumented, unverified campaign contributions the SoetorObama camp has received which the McCain campaigned filed a complaint to the FEC on this past Monday.
Weve also heard that the Clinton campaign filed complaints to the FBI and other federal agencies over SoetorObamas fraud in the Iowa, Texas and other caucuses: voter intimidation, registration fraud, and other illegal activities.
The last thing we were told tonight in regards to all of this was that the meme here is a tying together of all these various threads. Thats what you will see in the last weeks of the campaign: all things being tied together.
If everything rumored here is true, it looks like David Axelrod, Howard Dean, Donna Brazile, SoetorObama himself, and possibly even Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were all involved, together, in massive RICO violations, and thus federal fraud, if the DNC and party leadership knew what the SoetorObama campaign and ACORN were up to and allowed it to proceed. Knowledge of federal crimes being committed makes all parties accessories to those crimes and part of the conspiracy to defraud the public.
THAT would certainly be one Hell of a shock tomorrow morning.
good law(s)Torte reform.
Bad law(s)lowering the education requirements for health care workers.
I just can't bear the thought of our boys and girls fighting in the name of socialism for that punk.
OK....i TELL YA WHAT I’M GONNA DO...YOUUUU DIRTY RAT
aww come on , we can dream cant we?
Play by 0bama rules: -— According to the Chicago Tribune, Mr. Obamas petition challengers reported to him nightly on their progress as they disqualified his opponents signatures on various technical grounds all legitimate from the perspective of law. One local newspaper, Chicago Weekend, reported that [s]ome of the problems include printing registered voters name [sic] instead of writing, a female voter got married after she registered to vote and signed her maiden name, registered voters signed the petitions but dont live in the 13th district.
One of the candidates would speculate that his signature-gatherers, working at a per-signature pay rate, may have cheated him by signing many of the petitions themselves, making them easy to disqualify.
In the end, Mr. Obama disqualified all four opponents including the incumbent state senator, Alice Palmer, and three minor candidates.
Mr. Obama is not the reformer he now claims to be. The real man is the one they know in Chicago the one who won his first election by depriving voters of a choice.
We should have fleets of GOP lawyers.
Obama Played by Chicago Rules http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121918996082755013.html
Yes, because Hillary’s supporters will MAKE it different.
Don't you mean, Norman "Who??"
Seriously though... if this is real... I hope it sticks.
Awesome!! Thanks....I’m gonna wiki them now.
Do you think its unethical to ask you to write my ethics paper? PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEzE
The guy just isn’t fit to be president. That’s enough. On top of that his leanings are so soiled that the guy is truly dangerous IMO. I agree with you.
If I’m not mistaken, President Reagan created it to go after organized crime.
Wait a minute....
were you goofing on me about education level and Health care worker....hmmmmm
I am going to go to bed with a smile of hope on my face.
Here’s a quote from the obamama just last Nov. - to ACORN:
Ive been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work. Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007
Let him parse that.
There is a lot of Acorn stuff out there, especially from FOX. CNN did the in depth Ayers association, outed Obama’s campaign spokeswoman as a liar. Obama and Ayers are both connected to the formation of Acorn, and Obama was hand picked by Madeline Talbot Acorns founding queen, as top trainer for Acorns community organizers.
MSM can’t sit on it forever.
ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now!, is rapidly becoming my political bete’ noir. I can feel my blood boiling at their very mention. They wrap themselves in “helping the community” and call themselves a non-partisan horde of high-minded do-gooders, but every single election cycle more and more of their employees and volunteers end up getting caught in engaging in one of the most heinous crimes one can commit against democracy — voter fraud.
It has gotten to the point where I think it would not only be a good idea, but damned near mandatory that concerned citizens ought to go anywhere ACORN holds one of its “voter registration drives” and offer peremptory challenges to every single registration they submit — because they have such a lengthy track record of submitting fraudulent registration forms.
It’s been a couple of years since I first started calling for a RICO investigation into ACORN’s activities, and if anything, I think that it’s more important than ever. And even more troubling for me is Barack Obama’s long ties to the group.
ACORN is one of the most dangerous types of scum around. They wrap themselves in the banner of high-minded, lofty-sounding goals and intentions, but push their agenda with the most despicable and loathsome tactics. If you oppose them, or question them, or even simply don’t agree with them sufficicently, then you obviously hate the poor and want to keep the underprivileged oppressed. They are thugs and swine who have taken the most downtrodden hostage for their own social-engineering goals, and don’t give a damn about the actual results of their actions.
Ah yes! very astute.
BUMP and prayers it’s true.
Interesting FR handle you have there, and also posting this story (thanks!), because the REAL HILLARY must be loving this!! She is licking its chops for 2012 in the great Palin-Clinton matchup.
