Nevada state officials raided Acorn's offices in Las Vegas this past Tuesday.
Yesterday, right here in Kansas City the election board was reporting that there were possibly hundreds of fraudulent voter registration forms, all coming from Acorn.
In 2006, I blogged about what a problem this was here in Missouri and around the country.
Yet, is it any wonder that while all of this voter fraud is done by a Democrat activist group, Democrats are the ones most resistant to requiring photo ids at the polls? Photo ids would be the best way to eliminate voter fraud and yet, Democrats fight it all the way.
Michelle Malkin gives an Acorn update, she lists fraud going on in Missouri, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana.
So, what is Obama's connection to Acorn? Nice Deb does a great post pointing out Obama's connections. The following excerpt comes from Obama's own website:
When Obama met with ACORN leaders in November, he reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. Senator Obama said, “I come out of a grassroots organizing background. That’s what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That’s the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. So this is something that I know personally, the work you do, the importance of it. I’ve 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.”Investor's Business Daily calls Obama Acorn's Senator and details his involvement as well.
Oh, and Obama's campaign has given Acorn 800,000 this year alone.
StopAcorn.org has a petition you can sign to investigate and stop Acorn. Below is what Stop Acorn says their project is all about:
Stop ACORN Now is a project of Americans for Limited Government. ACORN is a radical left-wing organization founded in 1970 by SDS member Wade Rathke. ACORN has grown to over 150 chapters throughout the United States. The organization is funded by a group of ultra-liberal foundations and unions. ACORN also received tens of millions of dollars directly from the taxpayers.
Over the past three election cycles ACORN has been tied to numerous incidents of voter registration fraud and other efforts to undermine the electoral system through fraudulent votes. In addition, the head of ACORN has admitted to embezzlement of at least $1 million. Whether this money was tax money or not has been covered up, with no explanation offered.
The efforts at voter fraud and the misuse of millions of dollars of taxpayers' money demand an investigation by the Department of Justice. If tax money has been used for partisan political purposes or outright stolen, action should be taken. And if, as it appears, ACORN has engaged in a coordinated effort across state lines to violation the law, RICO changes should be filed.
