Another ACORN fraud in Ohio?

posted at 9:40 am on August 28, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Cuyahoga County officials have accused ACORN, the GOTV organization employed by Barack Obama’s campaign, of voter registration fraud — again.  The Board of Elections has begun a criminal investigation into the submission of fraudulent registration cards, with an eye to prosecuting ACORN officials (via Bizzyblog):

A national organization that conducts voter registration drives for low-income people has curtailed its push in Cuyahoga County after the Board of Elections accused its workers of submitting fraudulent registration cards.

The board is investigating the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now[.] Results of the inquiry could be turned over to the county prosecutor.

Board employees said ACORN workers often handed in the same name on a number of voter registration cards, but showing that person living at different addresses. Other times, cards had the same name listed, but a different date of birth. Still another sign of possible fraud showed a number of people living at an address that turned out to be a restaurant.

ACORN has a long history of alleged fraud in their registration drives.  All of their improprieties have gone to the benefit of Democrats, and Democrats have not stinted on their appreciation.  Here in Minnesota, failed gubernatorial candidate Mike Hatch diverted thousands of dollars to ACORN from a lawsuit settlement as Attorney General.  Democrats in Congress sent millions to ACORN as part of the economic stimulus plan in February and in the housing bailout bill in April.

What did Democrats subsidize with these gifts to ACORN?  A rap sheet years long, including in Ohio:

2007: A man in Reynoldsburg was indicted on two felony counts of illegal voting and false registration, after being registered by ACORN to vote in two separate counties.

2004: A grand jury indicted a Columbus ACORN worker for submitting a false signature and false voter registration form. In Franklin County, two ACORN workers submitted what the director of the board of election supervisors called “blatantly false” forms. In Cuyahoga County, ACORN and its affiliate Project Vote submitted registration cards that had the highest rate of errors for any voter registration group.

In examining the record, one has to wonder why Congress hasn’t demanded a RICO investigation of ACORN instead of trying to find ways to fund its pattern of fraud.  The Democratic majority apparently feels that they need ACORN to conduct fraud on a massive scale in order to cement their grip on power.  And, since their presidential candidate just had to amend his campaign finance records to show an $800,000 contract with ACORN, it seems Barack Obama’s supposed “reform” rests on the same kind of fraud.

The Dems have been guilty of illegal campaign activities since Bubba
–sold the Lincoln bedroom
–sold nuclear technology to the ChiComs
–sold permission to Loral Corp to send missile technology to the ChiComs
& since Al Gore illegally conducted fundraising from his VP offices.

This, my friends, is what I’m talkin’ about. This is not a voter registration organization, it is a crime syndicate targeting our electoral system, and supported exclusively by Democrats.

When you hear any Democrat this fall talking about “hundreds of thousands of new voters” that are going to deliver Barack Obama the presidency, remember this story. Acorn nmay have deliveredd hundrest of thousands of registration cards bearing names like Daffy Duck and Peter Pan, but that doesn’t mean those are voters who actually, you know, exist.

Part of ACORN’s plan is to deluge local election officials with thousands of false registration to bollix them up. They they show up on Election Day with a mos that they 0ut on usbes from recinct to rpecinct attempting to cast votes in the names of all those fradulent voters. When they start getting turned away and disqualified in large numbers, then they head straight for the cameras and the courtrooms to scream “voter suppression!”

Yes, folks, this is an organized and deliberate effort to completely undermine our free election system in this country. If they can create enough chaos at the polls, they can convince a lot of gullible people to lose faith in thye entire system and believe that every election that does not go their way was stolen.

These are the people whom Barack Obama spent his formative years with in Chicago and who provided the shock troops for his first election to the Illinois Senate. This association is far mor scary and far more dangerous than William Ayers. I hope HotAir and Michelle Malkin will continue to shine the spotlight on these cockroaches.

Anyone who thinks radicalism in the U.S. died in the 1970s, or that communism ended with the fall of the USSR, need to wake up and smell the coffee. It’s right here, right now, and it’s about to have a President of the United States in its back pocket if we don’t all get out there and do something to stop it.

But then again, that’s the Chicago way; to criticize it would be criticizing his culture…

Anyway, he’d simply send them under the bus with the rest of his crew-until such time that he needed to use them again…

The DNC POTUS ticket can ONLY win by fraud.

BHO’s single credit to his name: “fixer” community activist, best organized crime made legit candidate evah.

Attorney Diamond explicates Obama’s “Pinstripe Politics”; Obama’s history/record covering progressive activities under the umbrella of an attorney that gets the kick-backs from cooked books and board memberships, sending the paperwork forward as “legit” for the activities to prosper padding democrat pockets. It’s tax dollars being funneled into organized political crime, not just corrupt/criminal corporate fronts pumping dollars into the DNC elite pockets.

The story to be relentlessly pursued right now is the DNC elite meeting in the Brown/Browning (?) Denver Hotel after which the photojournalist on the sidewalk was arrested without reason for “trespassing” as he documented who attended. SPLASH THAT and dash their cover.

Ed, Virginia is getting along quite well also:

In a 2005 letter to ACORN, the (Virginia) State Board of Elections reported that 56% of the voter registration applications ACORN turned in were ineligible. Further, a full 35% were not submitted in a timely manner, as required by law. The State Board of Elections also commented on what appeared to be evidence of intentional voter fraud. “Additionally,” they wrote, “information appears to have been altered on some applications where information given by the applicant in one color ink has been scratched through and re-entered in another color ink. Any alteration of a voter registration application is a Class 5 Felony in accordance with § 24.2-1009 of the Code of Virginia.”

At what point will someone in the FBI or other agency realize that ACORN is a criminal organization trying to subvert the election process in favor of the Democrat party? At the very minimum, the RICO statutes should be brought down upon ACORN like a massive sledge hammer.

I suspect that were it not for our new voter ID law, BHO would have won the primary here in Indiana. Of course he still came awful close.

This is true voter fraud. Democrats have always been harping about having “every vote count” and to perform a valid recount in Florida back in 2000.

But, since this is in their favor, they wont move a muscle.

The Democrat Party is organized crime and answers to organized crime – just ask “Mr. Clean Face”, the Mafia’s errand boy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

I’m pretty sure Obama is opposed to dirty politics. Didn’t his legal staff just contact the Attorney General about shutting down the ad connecting him to Ayers? Looks to me like he’s doing all he can to keep things clean. They will probably get right on this ACORN thing as soon as they find time. Say, wasn’t he a community organizer at one time?

The picture of Nazi Pelosi and Fauxbama, makes me think “criminal” immediately. The lefties have been riding the “Bushco criminal empire” thing for a long time. Seems to me the Dems are true liars and criminals. During BJ’s speech last night, the only lie he missed was, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” When Fauxbama loses, the cries of “Diebold” across the leftist blogosphere will take on incredible dimensions.

He lost.

And as such we’ll continue to see more of this corruption in the future. Of course the Democrats have been doing this since at least JFK. The Chicago machine, of which Obama is a part, is in fact the most infamous part of the Democrats’ fraud efforts. Heck, they stole the Washington governor’s election in plain sight.

moxie_neanderthal on August 28, 2008 at 10:27 AM

Have been mentioning ACORN fraud in Ohio since the old CQ days.

Cuyahoga County is just a small part of the overall Ohio-ACORN problem. The Toldeo area (Lucas County) and the surrounding rural counties, had record numbers of “provisional ballots” submitted that have yet to be checked out for authenticity, and we had hundreds if not thousands of “registered” voters who did not exist…wrong address, multiple names at the same address, names already registered in another county or precinct…Columbus and Dayton also encountered this, and yet, little has been done to remedy any of it.

One town nearby had two precincts that had more voters than residents in those precincts in the 2004 General Election, the bulk casting “provisional ballots.”

Governor Strickland…who’d have guessed it, a Democrat…is doing nothing at all to enable more investigations of what many have witnessed in the past two General Elections.

I’m sorry I’m an apparent “racist,” but when a bus or two with La Raza signs painted on the sides park a block away from a voting place, and several dozen people walk in as a group and demand “provisional ballots” on election day, and none are speaking English, and all caucus among themselves before approaching the voting machines, something that obvious cannot be overlooked. When a good number of cars and vans, bearing other county registrations, pull up to voting places in this county, and no one questions why someone living 25-40 miles away is voting in this small city, and bringing a bunch of their friends along…it defies logic, and the law.

There should be no “provisional ballots.” It is not like elections suddenly spontaneously appear on our calendars. If one cannot register, with proper identification, in sufficient time to be placed on the voter rolls in a precinct, then one really should not be voting at all.

Frankly, requiring voter registration no less than 120 days prior to an election should be the established norm. And if you cannot provide proof of residency, proof of citizenship when registering, and provide photo identification on election day before being given a ballot…tough. Too bad.

And if you are too dumb to register, and register prior to 120 days…maybe you might just be too dumb to be allowed to vote.

Voting is a Rright for the citizens of this Nation. If you are not a citizen…don’t vote. If you are a citizen and can’t find the time to register, and obtain proper ID, then voting is something for which you are unworthy, since you don’t care to expend the effort, any effort, beforehand.

One citizen, one vote. And prosecute the fraudulent. No fines…just five years working it off in a state facility.

We need video cameras at the polling stations to witness this organized fraud. There were reports of busloads of people coming from New York City into Philadelphia on Election Day 2004 as well. Democrats take this sh** seriously. It’s time we did too.

Organized crime? Ever since the GOP let Florida 2000 Gore get away with attempted election fraud with not even a slap on the wrist afterwards, the Dems know they can go unpunished for literally anything (see no treason, hear no treason). It’s who they are. Accepting it should not be who we are.

drjohn on August 28, 2008 at 10:51 AM

RE: “When does this become organized crime?”

There is the question of the millennium, well the most salient question of the last 250 years, at least.

Which immediately leads to the next question, “who will do anything about it”, since it appears that only the foot soldier is being targeted.

Which also explains why the democrat party is so adamant about electronic surveillance of communications media. Which also explains why the democrat party is so adamant about surveillance of their party activities by CIA/FBI.

When government agencies are prohibited from gathering evidence, and when the offending organizations are being funded by government grants controlled by the democrat party, it becomes obvious that nothing will be, can be done as long as the democrat party controls the government.

It is up to the voters, and they don’t know, don’t care, don’t think anything can be done, or are in on the deal.

rockhauler on August 28, 2008 at 10:57 AM

if the electoral system has been rigged then its over. that destroys the legitimacy of the government and that means it all ends in violence eventually. if obama wins due to fraud expect a violent 4 years.

thekingtut on August 28, 2008 at 11:06 AM

I think that is close, but not exactly the case.

It’s only a crime when the MSM starts the echo chamber. So Bush can fire a few federal prosecutors, and it is a crime, and Clinton can fire them all and it is not.

Now, since the MSM is the Dem’s media outlet functionally you are indeed correct – but I think the blame really belongs to the MSM-Democrat alliance more then the Democrats themselves.

Get an independent media, and you’d get a Democrat party that didn’t celebrate criminality (at least eventually).

Hmmm…
- Could not pull off a legitimate primary win, even with “record” turn out. Had to depend on superdelegates with Pelosi’s help.
- Convention “voting” in hotel lobbies over breakfast
- Completely faked roll call vote, rigged to be called off for no clear reason and against party rules
- Pelosi talks past listening for dissenting votes, bangs gavel, calls it over and ques music without pause.
- ACORN

What’s next? Will he try to get McCain tossed off the ballot?

Aw c’mon. You guys are just big meanies. A few workers that ACORN found on the street were helping just register poor people so they could have their vote counted.

This isn’t anywhere near as bad as some group exercising their rights and producing a TV ad.

Or some reporter digging into papers to find something on some professor that did something when Oblahblah was only 8 years old.

Or some reporter bothering politicians just trying to get something done for the little people by meeting with some benevolent benefactors.
