ACORN continues to commit voter fraud!

The community housing/voter registeration group known as ACORN is continuing to commit voter fraud even while they know the world is watching

CLEVELAND - Two Ohio voters, including Domino's pizza worker Christopher Barkley , claimed yesterday that they were hounded by the community-activist group ACORN to register to vote several times, even though they made it clear they'd already signed up.

Barkley estimated he'd registered to vote "10 to 15" times after canvassers for ACORN, whose political wing has endorsed Barack Obama, relentlessly pursued him and others.

Claims such as his have sparked election officials to probe ACORN.

"I kept getting approached by folks who asked me to register," Barkley said. "They'd ask me if I was registered. I'd say yes, and they'd ask me to do it [register] again.

"Some of them were getting paid to collect names. That was their sob story, and I bought it," he said.

"You can tell them you're registered as many times as you want - they do not care," said Lateala Goins, 21, who was subpoenaed.

"They will follow you to the buses, they will follow you home, it does not matter," she told The Post.

I guess we know what happened to all the Ron Paul supporters now.

A third subpoenaed voter, Freddie Johnson, 19, filled out registration cards 72 times over 18 months, officials said.

72 registration cards. If he put a different address on each card he could vote 72 times in every election from here on out. So much for one person one vote. With ACORN it's one person however many times we can get you to register. I wonder how many McCain supporters they registered more than once, or even once.

"It feeds the public perception that there could be [fraud], and that makes the pillars fall down," said local Board of Elections President Jeff Hastings

Could be Fraud! This is Fraud ACORN officals should be rounded up and thrown in jail. This is American so they get a trail, but it doesn't seem like their is much doubt here as to what's going on.

ACORN's Cleveland spokesman, Kris Harsh, said his group collected 100,000 voter-registration cards; only about 50 were questionable, he claimed.

Maybe only 50 were questioned, but I bet at least 5,000 were questionable. Let me and some of my friends go and take a look at them. We'll be honest, unlike ACORN. I bet we uncover massive voter fraud. I'll willing to go now, and I'll do it for free.

As for workers, "We watch them like a hawk," he said.

A hawk, really I guess if the hawk if blind and deaf that would kinda make sense. Maybe they meant now that we've been caught we'll be much more careful about how we commit voter fraud. Because we know ACORN will not stop commiting fraud. Their political wing as come out in favor of Obama and they plan to do everything they can, including cheating, to make sure he wins.


  1. Surprising that Barack Obama personal has funnelled $800,000 to this group. Oh, and did I mention, he was once their attorney and taught community organizing tactics to them?

  2. Were going to be in bad shape if this doesn't turn around fast. Are you ready for the U.S.S.A.? (United Socalist States of America)

  3. The weakness in this story is there doesn't appear to be any evidence that ACORN has any structure in place to turn this registration fraud into voting fraud.

    ACORN's real problem is that they're offering incentives based on how many voters an individual manages to register, which encourages this kind of behavior. But it's a long stretch to take that and convert it into voter fraud. For that to work, ACORN would need to know all the false names, duplicates, etc. of the people they're registering and then have a method in place to transmit those identities to hundreds if not thousands of voters in each state who can then go to vote under those false or duplicate identities.

    As an example of the general weakness of this conspiracy theory, in one of the stories you note, a Domino's driver claims to have registered 10 or more times due to hounding by ACORN. But if he's giving the same information each time, then there's no way for anyone to vote in his place. They'll simply cross his name off when he votes, and anyone else who shows up at his polling place with a registration card in his name won't be able to vote.

    There's also a story in the NY Times today about how some states are illegally purging voters from the rolls. I don't think those states are trying to deprive people of the right to vote any more than I think ACORN has some massive system in place to commit voter fraud on election day. They just have employees who are trying to boost their numbers to earn more money. It's not a conspiracy, it's just human greed. It's not going to affect anything on election day.

  4. So Big Blue,

    Are you saying that Acorn's actions are ok?
