ACORN


WHY IS ACORN BEING INVESTIGATED... AND IS THIS REALLY A BIG DEAL?
A group Barack Obama used to work for is committing voter-registration fraud in several states, ahead of the election. The group's voter-registration fraud is rampant, and authorities plan a nationwide sweep of ACORN offices to collect records.
~~ In Nevada, state officials say the fraudulent registrations included forms for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys football team, including quarterback Tony Romo.
~~ In North Carolina, ACORN has registered a record number of new voters, many of them suspicious. Statewide, Democrats are doing better than the GOP in new converts — even in traditionally Republican counties.
~~ In Missouri, one ACORN registrant named Monica Rays showed up on no less than eight forms, all bearing the same signature.
Suspicious election officials sent letters to some 5,000 ACORN registrants in St. Louis, asking the letter recipients to contact them. Fewer than 40 reponded.
~~ In Kansas City, 15,000 registrations have been questioned, and last year four ACORN employees were indicted for fraud.
~~PLUS, ACORN officials have also been indicted in Wisconsin and Colorado. Investigations against others are active in Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
~~ ACORN has also been registering convicted felons — including inmates — in Florida and other battleground states. ACORN boasts registering a record 1.5 million new voters so far this election.
What does all this have to do with Obama?
For starters, ACORN has endorsed Obama for president, AFTER he paid the group $800,000 to register new voters. Yet, his campaign failed to accurately report those payments. They were hidden in his FEC disclosure as payments to a front group called Citizen Services Inc. for "advance work."
What's more, Obama worked as executive director of ACORN's voter-registration arm, Project Vote, in 1992. Joined by two other community organizers on Chicago's South Side, Obama conducted the voter-registration drive that helped elect Carol Moseley-Braun to the Senate that year.
The next year, 1993, Obama joined the civil-rights law firm Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland, where he sued the state of Illinois on behalf of ACORN to implement the federal "Motor Voter" law, which the GOP governor at the time refused to do.
Then-Gov. Jim Edgar argued, that the Clinton law would invite voter fraud.
Obama downplays his ties to ACORN, and his campaign denies coordinating with ACORN to register voters.

RELATED: HOW ACORN GOT ME INTO VOTE SCAM Two Ohio voters, including a Domino's pizza worker, claimed 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.
The man estimated he'd registered to vote "10 to 15" times after canvassers for ACORN.

Now, eight senators have demanded the Federal Housing Finance Agency cut off any funding that could be given to ACORN.
Late Thursday, House Republican Leader John Boehner demanded all federal funding to the group stop, saying the organization can't be trusted with one more taxpayer dollar.

Check out the map of Obama's neighborhood posted on this website. It's ran by a Democrat from Chicago that's not supporting the messiah.

I was not planning to vote this year, since I can't stand McCain who destroyed the Republican party. Last night I marked the block on my absentee ballot for McCain. Now I have a reason to vote again. I'm voting against fraud, deceipt, corruption, and for the sustainment of what remains of the American way of life. I doubt my one vote has a chance against the Democratic corruption machine, but I didn't waste it like I had planned.

Obama could never be approved for a "secret security clearance" required for employment as a civil servant with the US Government, with his background and former associations. But yet he may become the President of the United States? Makes me shudder to think about our national security and solvency of the United States.
