Update: Blue Collar Muse answers more liberal efforts to shift blame from ACORN, and provides a boatload more evidence. And Palestra documents more sinister voting activity connected with the Obama campaign in Ohio.
It’s hard to keep up with all the evidence pouring forth.
A liberal denizen of my comments section likes to repeat the claim that ACORN’s repeated acts of voter registration fraud are harmless, that I shouldn’t waste my time writing about it, and that he is so bored by the topic that he just has to keep commenting on it. Yes, the same ACORN under FBI investigation that prominently endorsed the deceptive issue campaign Protect Colorado’s
Culture of Corruption Future.
But then you look at New Mexico, and you see where voter fraud – so hard-to-prove – resulted directly from ACORN voter registration fraud…in the very closely decided Democratic primary:
The GOP’s review was conducted in House District 13 and only included 92 ballots. That means roughly a third of the ballots examined found by the GOP were fraudulent. The New Mexico GOP released 10 of their suspect ballots. They ballots did not contain required identification information such as Social Security numbers, drivers license numbers or birthdates.
â€œThis is a bombshell. We now have undeniable proof that a significant number of fraudulent voters were cast in Democrat primary races for the New Mexico state legislature as a result of ACORNâ€™s voter registration fraud,â€ said State Representative Justine Fox Young (R.-Albuquerque). â€œNo longer can ACORN argue that their phony voter registration forms donâ€™t translate into fraudulent votes. They do and today we can prove it.â€
The vote of Darnell Nash, one of four people subpoenaed in a Cuyahoga County probe of ACORN’s voter-registration activities, was canceled and his case was turned over to local prosecutors and law enforcement, Board of Elections officials said yesterday.
Nash had registered to vote repeatedly from an address that belonged to a legitimately registered voter, officials said during a hearing at which the subpoenaed voters were to testify.
Board officials had contacted Nash this summer, questioned his address and told him to stop repeat registering.
But still, he breezed into Ohio election offices – the state allows early voting for president – reregistered with a fake address and cast a paper ballot, officials said.
As Soren Dayton points out, not only are there fake people voting but also we’re left to wonder how many fake people contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign:
When he is getting $75m in a month from sources that are not publically [sic] identified, that’s a problem. In theory, these are all different people, but given the possibility for fraud (temporary credit card numbers can make it even harder to check), this does create yet another kind of crisis of legitimacy surrounding this election.
The answer is transparency. And one of the most effective tools for shining the light at least on the problem of voter fraud is this page created by Ballotpedia.
Some Lefties may say, in essence: “Look, there’s nothing to see here. Just go on with your business. Voter registration fraud isn’t a problem. You’re just a racist.” But they have a lot to answer for. Meanwhile, the name ACORN – linked with Barack Obama – grows more infamous.
