    Re: ACORN Pleads Guilty to Voter Fraud

    in september of 09 the house, still controlled by pelosi with her plurality of 78 seats, voted to defund ACORN, 345 to 75

    the same month, reid's dark blue senate concurred by a tally of 83 to 7

    why?

    why were the COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS recipient of some FIFTY THREE MILLION DOLLARS of federal aid in the first place?

    If this had happened in only one or two locations it wouldn't be a big deal (unless of course the organization was affiliated with Conservatives or Republicans).

    ACORN and Project Vote are doing this all over the country. They must be getting something out of it.

    Closed minds...... yeah, that has to be it.

    The reward was getting paid more money for more voters signed up

    Is that not a simple enough concept

    Any time canvassers are paid by the registration this occurs. Mechanisms are in place to prevent paying people for fake registrations as well as save the registrar resources.

    Maybe back then there was a legitimate possibility of election tampering through fake registrations.

    But the difficulty of obtaining the necessary ID, as well as computerised verification processes are making this a vanishing possibility.

    As much noise as has been made by both sides on this issue you would think this was an actual issue.

    But actual cases of actually cast fraudulent votes are rare at best. It simply isn't practical.

    Tampering with electronic voting machines would apparently be FAR easier.

    Carry on.
    That's all well and good. I realize that voter fraud and false regestrations have been going on for years.

    ACORN and Project Vote have bee caught doing this in virtually every state. This is an organized nationwide effort.

    Nobody at a polling station is going to see these fake voters. They are voting by absentee ballots.

    I know what the reward for the individuals working for ACORN and PV is. Money of course.

    What is the reward for ACORN and Project Vote?

    How many absentee ballots are being sent out to fake voters?

    Re: ACORN Pleads Guilty to Voter Fraud

    Moderator's Warning:
    ACORN Pleads Guilty to Voter Registration Fraud in NevadaIf you see something is a violation of the rules the correct action is to REPORT IT. Attempting to derail a thread by harping on it repeatedly is trolling and is just as against the rules as the name violation. If you see a rules violation either report it or ignore it; complaining about it in thread isn't an option I would advise.

    The personal attacks being thrown around need to cease and people need to get on topic.

    Finally, I love the blurb at the end about the pimp scandal that doesnt bother to mention that scandal was based on edited video and was not at all representative of what actually happened.

    ****ing Fox. So typical.
    So the OP should have corrected the article in its entirety? Derail threads much?

    Re: ACORN Pleads Guilty to Voter Fraud

    I believe there needs to be a Federal Law that requires all voters show a picture ID to register and then to vote.

    In California you can register on line and vote by mail and never have to prove a damn thing.

    California I believe has serious voter fraud with thousands of illegals voting in every election and they can't read or write or even speak English.

    Re: ACORN Pleads Guilty to Voter Fraud

    So, let me see if I have the facts here correct.

    A few employees of an organization that is responsible for registering voters were being paid in a manner that is legal in many states, but not legal in Nevada. Those same employees chose, of their own volition, to fake paperwork to trick that organization into paying them more money. These employees were found out by the organization and reported, and the fake registrations were annulled so that no fake votes could be cast. And no fake votes were cast. The employees were brought to justice, and the organization they worked for has correctly decided not to clog the legal system in trying to pretend that they didn't employ this unorthodox payment tactic, and are justly paying for it in Nevada. This same payment style is legal in many other states and apparently works just fine there.

    Why is the outrage directed at ACORN as a whole, and not at the specific people who broke the law? I thought people being responsible for their own actions was a major tenant of conservativism and libertarianism.

    I almost spoke up. All I had to do was hit the thank button. Now I can relax.
