ACORN's voter registrations questioned
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | October 9, 2008 | Matthew Santoni

Posted on 10/09/2008 1:13:10 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Thousands of allegedly fake voter registrations by a nationwide organization are being investigated. At least nine states are reviewing voter paperwork, and Allegheny County police are looking into similar accusations.

Employees of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, commonly known as ACORN, are under investigation in Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin since local election officials started noticing irregularities among the thousands of registrations submitted by ACORN.

The ACORN organizer in one state said the organization had no way of checking all registrations.

Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms.

Charlene Davis, co-director of the election board in Jackson County, where Kansas City is, said the fraudulent registration from ACORN were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote.

"I don't even know the entire scope of it because registrations are coming in so heavy," Davis said. "We have identified about 100 duplicates, and probably 280 addresses that don't exist, people who have driver's license numbers that won't verify or Social Security numbers that won't verify. Some have no address at all."

"In Lake County, Ind., Elections Board Director Sally LaSota told The (Munster) Times newspaper that out of 2,000 new voter applications dropped off by ACORN employees, "about 1,100 were no good."

Did you catch that? More than half were fraudulent!!

And yet ACORN is still hiring for people to go out and register people via Craigslist and other job boards. Hilarious...this is spreading like wildfire.

Now connect their dirty work to the Southern Poverty Law Center and we have some real dirty stuff come out.

Not surprising.

Neither is the fact that these are all swing states.

But then what do you expect of a group that ensures 105% of the citizens of Indianapolis are registered to vote?

Or the Clinton’s...they very well could have pushed the button to destroy and nuke his campaign by having their friends at the FBI (you know they help them with files and all), start to flush his chances down the toilet.

I can see it now. Here come the riots.

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now

We need to hammer that point as often as we can. Maybe people will connect the dots on their own. :)

Didn’t Obama revise his FEC filings dealing with expenditures to ACORN to take “Get Out The Vote” work off his filings and replace it with “Event Planning”. I think is was to the tune of $800,000 (could have been 80, but i think the extra zero is right). I think someone figured out that they could trace the money back to Obama and that filing.

We need to run an ad right now that shows headline after headline and then Obama’s check to ACORN for “Get Out The Vote” efforts, then question why they switched it to “Event Planning”

Was the event they were planning a ballot stuffing party funded by Michele and Barack Obama? Or was it an accident that Acorn is under investigation in 11 states for the SAME crime using the SAME m.o.?

Now the MSM will all become "Immunity Organizers" for Obama and Acorn.

Amazingly ACORN is only actively working in battleground states. The Dems have transformed the US into a third-world country. Lord help us!

This election will affect the future of the US and yet the government continues to let this fraud happen without prosecution. No wonder they keep it up.

Don't forget the headlines in the past 6 months about the incredible increase in Democratic Party voter registrations. Looks like most of them were fake.

Did you recently Change address get Married using another name? Use the Name of your work? use the Address of your moms Home..? a Boy friends address..? Your Office... She said NO that is Voter Fraud and didn’t want to get in trouble.. He got off on the next station and I guessed worked the next subway car!

The really great thing is you can be sure that ACORN has been active for the Dems for years. I have always believed that massive cheating has often gotten Democrats in. Wouldn’t it be great if their ace card was pulled. It would be an answer to prayer.
