Court Finds Brunner in Violation of Federal Law
Secretary of State appeals ruling, fights effort to validate registrations

(Columbus) – A federal court ruled tonight that Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner violated federal election laws by not taking adequate steps to validate the identity of newly registered voters.

The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge George C. Smith called the identification breakdown “a serious problem” and ordered Brunner to immediately comply with federal requirements to match voter registration data with the information in the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Social Security Administration databases. The court accused Brunner of failing to provide county election administrators with “an effective way to access and review mismatches.” She immediately appealed the ruling.

“For some reason, Jennifer Brunner does not want these new registrations checked,” said Ohio Republican Party Deputy Chairman Kevin DeWine. “Her refusal to comply with federal law raises serious concerns about her ability to objectively oversee this election. It’s especially troubling in light of her connection to ACORN and that group’s stunning confession this week of fraudulent registration activity happening right here in Ohio.”

Brunner’s effort to fight the court order comes just two days after the Democrat activist group ACORN admitted to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections that the group engages in fraudulent voter registration activity.

Ohio ACORN officials “blamed the elections board for not scrutinizing ACORN’s suspicious cards,” claiming the group “can’t be expected to catch everything.”

ACORN is facing similar inquires in other Ohio counties as well as 10 other states. Members of the group’s “voter-mobilization arm,” Project Vote, regularly advise Brunner on election strategy, even recently issuing a news release that claims credit for Brunner’s directive restricting challenges to suspected fraudulent voter registrations. Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama also has strong ties to ACORN, working previously as an attorney and “leadership trainer” for the group.

OK, now I will wait for all the Democrats and Democrat groups who have been so vehemently decrying election fraud for 8 years to say “Kudos! We need people to act within the law! Let’s clean this up!” I could probably ask Brad Friedman, who has followed these issues for years. Oops. No, he feels that any GOP cries of fraud in Ohio is made up and an “October Surprise.”

A few DUmmies are not happy about this, and seem to be saying that requiring people to follow the law is bad. Otherwise, I’m not finding many on the Left who have found the story interesting. I wonder why?

Wizbang has much more, and points to a Townhall story about the silence of the Left.

I wonder what the Left will think of Obama’s ACORN turning in over 2,000 fraudulent voter registration forms, forcing even CNN to take notice. Last time I checked, ACORN was pulling for a Democrat. Eh, they’ll probably blame the GOP for making it an issue.

More: It just keeps getting worse and worse. Via Memeorandum and Google News, now we have

Andf, let’s not forget that ACORN, a supposedly non-partisan group that accepts no money from the government (snicker), endorsed Obama for President back in February 2008.

    Acorn needs to get out of the way of election boards before they cause a huge problem. Already, Obama is being accused of voter fraud, which is totally ridiculous. He has be paying to take people that can’t transport themselve to the polls in Cleveland and they register there, and then vote. But with Acorn idiots duplicating registrations, it will just slow the processes down.
    ACORN–GET THE HELL OUT.

    To Mr Weeton, Obama is a former ACORN organizer and INSTRUCTOR, where do you think they learned how to illegally register voters? DUH. Throw the criminals in jail where they belong. It is a telling scenario that the Obama campaign is not secure in the chances of winning the election on the up and up, so they do like they always have in Chicago and that is to fix the election, only this time on a national scale. It is also a small wonder that the Democrat Party is vehemently opposed to requiring photo ID at the poll prior to receiving a ballot.
