Who, me? Voter fraud in Connecticut
A local spokesman for Acorn (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) denies any sort of fraud in its voter registration drives. Hartford Democrat spokeswoman Nancy DiNardi sides with Acorn:
DiNardo said Republicans are trying to make an issue out of ACORN’s national registration drives because Democrats have the advantage.
“People are registering far more as Democrats than they are as Republicans,” DiNardo said. “And they will throw out anything about ‘voter fraud’ to see what sticks on the wall.”
The most recent story about ACORN is that of the man ACORN paid in cigarettes and dollar bills each time he registered – in his case, 72 times.
That’s not the end of the story. As Ron Popiel would say, “but wait, there’s more!”
Kansas City officials find hundreds of bogus registrations
Nevada raids ACORN offices
More registrants than voters in Indianapolis
Three ACORN workers in Seattle plead guilty to voter fraud scheme
Washington state prosecutors indict seven ACORN workers
It’s worse in Kansas City:
City officials scoff at that. They say it’s up to Acorn to explain why over 1,000 addresses listed on its registrations don’t exist. “We met twice with Acorn before their drive, but our requests completely fell by the wayside,” says Democrat Matt Potter, the city’s deputy elections director. His election clerks were already putting in 13-hour work days and “dumping this on them isn’t fair.” In the past, several Democrats, including Mayor Francis Slay, have complained about bloated voter rolls leading to stolen votes.
So why no outcry? Because St. Obama is up to his neck in ACORN’s campaign of fraud
“I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career,” he told the group last November.
Indeed, in the early ’90s, Obama was recruited by Talbott herself to run training sessions for ACORN activists.
ACORN also got funding from two charities, the Woods Fund and the Joyce Foundation, when Obama served on their boards, and from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge – the radical “education reform” outfit Obama ran from ’95 to ’99.
And any attack on Obama or ACORN is, of course, Racist!
This campaign is about race, plane and simple. ACORN is helping minorities to vote — and guess what, that scares Republicans. Politically they fear losing elections, but this is about something much deeper.
I thought the campaign was about change.
