Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also known as ACORN, is in trouble again for voter fraud. Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama got his community organizer experience working for ACORN. Read about it below.
When you hear Barack Obama and his supporters discuss his experience as a Community Organizer they are talking about his time working for ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. That’s his qualifying experience for the Presidency of the United States. He started working there shortly after his graduation from Harvard Law School. He has had a longstanding relationship with ACORN every since.
ACORN has a long history of getting into trouble with the law for less that ethical methods of registering voters. Their troubles go back years and cover local elections in their Chicago home area as well as nationally. Its just been one thing after the other. All they have tried to do is get voters registered and they just keep on getting into trouble for it.
No doubt, they are being picked on by the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Bushitler Cheney Halliburton Evil McShame Far Right Wing of the Ignorant Hillbilly Party that populates trailer parks throughout Middle America.
They seem to have the unfortunate habit of registering people to vote who aren’t eligible to vote. A recent incident had to do with the Pennsylvania Primaries. Philadelphia and Delaware County election officials have requested the U.S. Attorney’s office to look into multiple claims of voter fraud during that primary. And still he didn’t take Pennsylvania. That must have hurt.
Apparently, they are accustomed to doing whatever is necessary to win. There has been a history of accusations and indictments for buying votes, dead voter registration, taking the phone book and whatever else is handy to register whoever they can to vote.
In Milwaukee there is a criminal investigation into the activities of 39 ACORN employees. The violations include falsifying legal documents (driver’s license numbers, Social Security numbers, etc) for voter registration cards and offering gifts to get people to sign up to vote.
“(ACORN) Workers … said they were under pressure from the community-organizing group that hired them to sign up more voters,” The Seattle Times reported . “Workers told investigators they went to the Seattle public library and filled out the voter registration forms, by using contrived names, addresses and Social Security numbers and in some cases plucked names from the phone book.”
Right now, there are allegations that ACORN is targeting underage voters. Its seems that studies have shown that the demographic the democrats are targeting are often not on college campuses, which they have focused on in the past. So now they are targeting high school students in an attempt to get more of their demographic registered …. apparently regardless of age.
Corruption is so rampant in the ACORN organization that they are suing themselves at this point.
If only they would defend our country with the same vigor that they pursue power and riches.
