Widespread voter fraud being reported in Michigan by — you guessed it — the “community organizers” at ACORN.
The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN’s Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.
“There appears to be a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications,” said Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office. “And it appears to be widespread.”
The Democrat party and the Obama campaign have both been trumpeting the heavy increase in voter registrations this cycle — now we know why that might be the case. A lot of the registrations coming from ACORN are either duplicate or simply made up.
The article in the Detroit Free Press doesn’t mention the word “Democrat” anywhere. So I will — is there any doubt in anyone’s mind as to which party these fraudulent voter registrations are benefiting (or intended to benefit)?
The answer is simple — this was done for one reason only: to benefit Barack Obama and trickle down Democrats.
In recent years, ACORN’s voter registration programs have come under investigation in Ohio, Colorado, Missouri and Washington, with some employees convicted of voter fraud.
It seems pretty clear to me that it is time to disband ACORN and prohibit that organization from ever again being allowed to conduct voter registration.
Well, at least now we know what “community organizers” do.
Michelle Malkin hopes “that someone else in the MSM will start asking pointed questions about the $800,000 Obama failed to report in hidden payments to ACORN under the name of a left-wing non-profit front group.”
I wouldn’t hold my breath Michelle, waiting for the mouthpiece MSM to actually do any investigative reporting on The One — their mission is to elect him, not report the truth.
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air:
The Department of Justice needs to open a RICO probe into ACORN. The RICO statutes make the leaders of a criminal enterprise personally responsible for the crimes committed by its members. If the DoJ can establish that ACORN management has encouraged fraudulent practices from the top down, that puts it within RICO territory. The repetition of their fraud in multiple jurisdictions make it clear that it’s not just coincidence at work here.
