    Seven ACORN volunteers charged with voter fraud

    Allegheny County authorities have charged seven volunteers from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now following a six-month investigation into voter registration fraud.

    District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. announced the charges during a news conference this morning.

    The volunteers were arrested on charges including forgery and falsification of voter records in connection with 51 forged registrations.

    Zappala said in November his office was investigating nearly 100 suspicious voter registrations, some of which came from canvassers from ACORN.

    The group faced similar accusations in other states

    ACORN Members Facing Voter Registration Fraud
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ―

    The Allegheny County District Attorney announced today that he is charging seven members of the political action group, ACORN, with forgery and election law violations.

    Authorities say the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now registered 140,000 voters during the 2008 general election, many of them were Democrats.

    But the Republican Party claimed that many of them were fraudulent.

    District Attorney Stephen Zappala announced the charges today, saying that hundreds of the registrants were indeed fraudulent.

    However, ACORN officials deny the charges.

    "Other states"==about 13 other states.

    This is easily the most overt corrupt organization claiming to be a non-profit/non-affiliated group. Its also has received tax payer money and is bidding on more.
    Perhaps the most overt voter fraud in US history(at least since the 19th Century). May end up being the largest as well.

    Obama's favorite.... gee I wonder why.

    Re: Seven ACORN volunteers charged with voter fraud

    It occurred to me today that since this organization (ACORN) has been charged and will presumably be found guilty of some felonies in multiple states, and that they are a national organization, and that they take part in extortion (threatening harm if support not given just like the mafia) that they can and should be attacked and prosecuted under the RICO laws. The fact that they are an arm of the Democrat party leads me to the obvious conclusion that the "party" is complicit in these racketeering activities. I assume that the federal funding could be construed as funds being extorted from congress but they who voted for ACORN funding are nonetheless in support of the criminal enterprise.

    Is my logic flawed?

    ACORN is one of the major participants in the 2010 census.

    Accuracy is their goal.

    Harry Guerrilla-

    I forgot about the role they are to play in the census.

    I don't think that census is going to be very accurate anyway.
    They either changed how it works or intend to change it still(pretty sure its a done deal) to give direct control to the WH of it.

    Lowrevs-

    I'm pretty sure everything you said would stand up in a court of law over normal people.
    Politicians get a different standard.

    Yea they (the Executive Branch) have politicized the census for party benefits.

    I encourage people to only give the number of people in their household for the census, everything else they ask for is unconstitutional.

    Yeah. Here's how...

    It occurred to me today that since this organization (ACORN) has been charged and will presumably be found guilty of some felonies in multiple states,
    Presumably? Who's presuming, you?

    and that they are a national organization, and that they take part in extortion (threatening harm if support not given just like the mafia) that they can and should be attacked and prosecuted under the RICO laws.
    Do you have some evidence of this? Please share it with us.

    The fact that they are an arm of the Democrat party leads me to the obvious conclusion
    What conclusion is that, that you don't know what facts are? I had no idea that ACORN is an arm of the Democratic party. Could you please provide the statement from either ACORN or the DNC that says ACORN is an arm of the DNC?

    that the "party" is complicit in these racketeering activities.
    First prove that ACORN is GUILTY of racketeering, then prove the DNC was complicit in that racketeering.

    I assume that the federal funding could be construed as funds being extorted from congress but they who voted for ACORN funding are nonetheless in support of the criminal enterprise.
    You can assume the moon is made of green cheese, that assumption doesn't make it fact.

    There ya go, now you know how flawed your "logic" is.

    Do you have any proof of any of that or is this just more of your "logic"?

    I'm not sure what part of that has anything to do with the law but maybe you could enlighten us.

    They have? Wow, could you link us to that info?

    I encourage people to only give the number of people in their household for the census, everything else they ask for is unconstitutional.
    Really? Could you quote the part of the Constitution that says you are only required to give the US Census the number of people in a household? Thanks.

    One of a myriad of articles on the subject of the WH and Census-


    Dems Downplay Obama's Plan to Oversee 2010 Census

    President Obama's plan to have the Census director report to the White House has sparked protest from Republicans who accuse the president of a political power grab.
