Another Day, Another ACORN Vote Fraud Scam
By Matthew Vadum Sunday, October 12, 2008

Every day brings new revelations of vote fraud by ACORN. It’s getting to be difficult to keep up with all the crimes being committed by representatives of the radical left-wing community organizing group.

The New York Post reported today that Freddie Johnson of Ohio filled out voter registration cards 72 times at the behest of the criminal enterprise known as ACORN:

CLEVELAND - A man at the center of a voter-registration scandal told The Post yesterday he was given cash and cigarettes by aggressive ACORN activists in exchange for registering an astonishing 72 times, in apparent violation of Ohio laws.

“Sometimes, they come up and bribe me with a cigarette, or they’ll give me a dollar to sign up,” said Freddie Johnson, 19, who filled out 72 separate voter-registration cards over an 18-month period at the behest of the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

”The ACORN people are everywhere, looking to sign people up. I tell them I am already registered. The girl said, ‘You are?’ I say, ‘Yup,’ and then they say, ‘Can you just sign up again?’ ” he said. [...]

ACORN is under investigation in Ohio and at least eight other states - including Missouri, where the FBI said it’s planning to look into potential voter fraud - for over-the-top efforts to get as many names as possible on the voter rolls regardless of whether a person is registered or eligible. [...]

ACORN has also used crack cocaine to pay its operatives in its various voter registration drives.

acorn! acorn! acorn! acorn is crooked! oh, my god! acorn!

and yet, the only person who's been arrested and charged for anything is that li'l jacoby fellow hired by the rnc. under investigation for other things in arizona, where he really lives. as opposed to california, where he used a bogus address to register so he could perpetrate registration fraud for the republican party.

also, foxy. your quote is from the canada free press. since when do conservatives give a rip about what canada thinks? especially from a "free press" publication.

a little research (and it only took a little), shows that mr. vadum has a real thing for acorn. and apparently all things liberal.

here's his little bio from the canfreeper;

Quote:
Matthew Vadum is Editor of Organization Trends and Foundation Watch, two monthly newsletters published by Capital Research Center, a Washington D.C.-based think tank that focuses on the politics of philanthropy. He has appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor,” “America’s Nightly Scoreboard,” “The G. Gordon Liddy Show,” “The Michael Reagan Show,” “Janet Parshall’s America,” “The Greg Knapp Experience,” “Politics of Money,” and has been published in the Boston Herald, Las Vegas Review Journal, Human Events, and elsewhere. He worked previously as a reporter for The Bond Buyer, a daily financial newspaper based on Wall Street, and the Central Penn Business Journal.


and here's a related list of his recent articles;
http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/members/5512/Matthew%20Vadum/

if acorn is charged, by authorities that is, with wrong doing, i will be one of the people looking for answers.

and by the way, the stuff that people are talking about is voter registration fraud, not voter fraud.

voter registration fraud is something like registering "mickey mouse" so you can collect your fee from a group like acorn.

or asking a person to sign a petition for something, when what you are doing is changing their party affiliation. which is what jacoby is charged with.

voter fraud, on the other hand, is more like when a presidential candidate's brother, a major state's governor, the secretary of state, who also is a co-chair of the candidate's election committee collude to unethically purge voter rolls, not count votes, try to bar recounts to the benefit of "their candidate".

It usually takes the form of registering people who are dead or other not in evidence or accounted for and then claiming 105% voter turnout in places in which, on a given day, half to two thirds of the adult population is either dead, MIA, in prison, in exile, abducted by aliens, carried off by the big bird, stoned, inebriated, cracked out, flaked out, or otherwise not easily accounted for.

The term is "vote manufacturing"; the areas which democrats control are generally more easily given to such usages than the regions which vote republican.

@Foxfyre,
And Freddie Johnson was definitely NOT offered a dollar and a cigarette in order to make accusations against ACORN. Nope.

Have ya'll heard of a little thing called "credibility"? Do you even care who makes accusations, or do you just swallow this stuff hook line and sinker everytime you're offered it?

Hee hee, you definitely hit a nerve Gunga. Smile

You know there's something to it when they start a) criticizing you for posting it; b) attacking and trying to discredit whoever wrote it c) start justifying voter registration fraud as not important if you can't tie it directly to voter fraud, d) etc.

But they can't explain away all those hits you get when you google as you suggested.

Nothing is more proof that there is a problem than when the lefties get this frantic. Smile

in which case they won't be showing up to vote, will they?

"voter registration fraud" and "voter/ballot fraud" are two separate activities.

personally, i'm all for motor-voter registration. in california, you can also obtain a california identification card. i think from the dmv, as well.

show up at the polling station with either one and you vote. ain't got one of the 2, ya ain't voting today.

Try googling McCain and Acorn and see what turns up..

It seems McCain has praised Acorn's work and attended and given speeches at Acorn sponsored events.

Except in Ca an illegal immigrant can get either of those forms of ID.
How do you determine when they show up to vote that they are legal or not?
Are you just going to take their word for it?

heck no. that would be counter productive. it will only work if people have to present a valid form of i.d.; an i.d. or license from another state, a birth certificate, passport or whatever.

that's one of the reasons i support biometric i.d. cards. it'll be a pain in the ass to get set up and get everyone vetted, but we have to find some way to control the information even we can't control the people coming over the border.

these days, a set of papers including license and s.s. card is going for about 50 bucks down around mcarthur park.

not to mention, it's going to cost beaucoup.

@gungasnake,
I'm so sick of all this bullshit about Acorn and the "liberal agenda" and Obama associating with Acorn and Acorn being a flawed, immoral organization. They have no committed voter fraud, they've employed people committing voter REGISTRATION fraud, big difference

Here's how it goes. (As far as I understand it, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)

Acorn pays people to register voters (by the way, completely legal) and pays them by how many people they get to register (again, legal). People employed by Acorn take advantage of this system and fill out registration forms themselves or get other people to fill out registration forms with bogus names/addresses/etc. When these forms are turned into Acorn, Acorn legally is required to turn them in, even if they know some are fake forms. You wanna talk about corrupt voter ways and what not? What about GOP in Florida sending out fake voter registration letters with "do not forward return to sender". If they had the mailers returned, the GOP would know who to challenge at the polls.

How about McCain supporting Acorn?

Phony flier says Virginians vote on different days
By Julian Walker
The Virginian-Pilot
© October 28, 2008
RICHMOND

A phony State Board of Elections flier advising Republicans to vote on Nov. 4 and Democrats on Nov. 5 is being circulated in several Hampton Roads localities, according to state elections officials.

In fact, Election Day, for voters of all political stripes, remains Nov. 4.

The somewhat official-looking flier - it features the state board logo and the state seal - is dated Oct. 24 and indicates that "an emergency session of the General Assembly has adopted the follwing (sic) emergency regulations to ease the load on local electorial (sic) precincts and ensure a fair electorial process."

The four-paragraph flier concludes with: "We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but felt this was the only way to ensure fairness to the complete electorial process."

No emergency action has been taken by the General Assembly. It is not in session and lacks the authority to change the date of a federal election.

State Board of Election officials today said they are aware of the flier but disavowed any connection to it.

"It's not even on our letterhead; they just copied the logo from our Web site," said agency staffer Ryan Enright, noting the flier has been forwarded to State Police for investigation as a possible incident of voter intimidation.

Election officials did not specify in which Hampton Roads localities the flier had been spotted.

State Police are aware of the complaint and are looking into it, said spokeswoman Corinne Geller.

In 2007, the General Assembly passed a law making it a Class 1 misdemeanor to knowingly communicate false information to registered voters about the date, time and place of the election or voters' precincts, polling places or voter registration statuses in order to impede their voting. The measure is one of the few such deceptive voting practice laws in the country, according to the watchdog group Common Cause.
