ACORN Under Investigation In Ohio

But, but, but, they are such a good organization, and the fraud is so little!!!!!

Election officials in Ohio’s most populous county have called on the prosecuting attorney to investigate alleged voter registration fraud by the community organizing group ACORN.

The bipartisan Cuyahoga County Board of Elections voted unanimously Monday to ask prosecutor Bill Mason to investigate four incidents of people signing multiple voter registration forms at the request of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform.

One of those voters, 19-year-old Freddie Johnson, told FOX News that he signed 73 voter registration forms over a five-month period. 

The Cleveland resident said he was offered cigarettes and cash while trying to help paid ACORN solicitors collect signed registrations, but said he did not understand the proper voter-registration procedures.

The group was “trying to get signatures so they can make their money, and I was trying to help them,” Johnson said.

But, really, is it a big deal? I mean, could a few hunderd votes really make a difference in an election? Come on, be real.

ACORN’s state director, Katy Gall, said the organization would fire anyone seeking to acquire duplicate registrations and is cooperating with the investigation

Yeah, because they got caught.

A different ACORN tool

Appearing on Fox News’s “On The Record With Greta Van Susteren” for an exclusive interview, ACORN’S national spokesman, Scott Levenson, called the timing of the investigations “curious.”

“What ACORN did, along with Project Vote, is as American as apple pie,” Levenson said. “What we’re doing is out there encouraging people to participate in the process. That work should be applauded.”

Except that is not the point of the process of elections. One should learn the candidates positions, look at their past votes, statements, and policy positions, and make an informed choice. If I thought Barack Obama was the better candidate, I would vote for him, because of facts, not because he is Black, or a Democrat. I voted for Clinton in 1996 and Gore in 2000, because I thought they were the slightly better candidates. I despise the whole “get people registered and get out the vote” stuff. We end up with people who are uninformed voting, and it turns elections into a beauty pageant.

    Please be advised that Bill Mason, The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor is a major part of the Democratic Machine. He is a political hack and as Partisan as they come. NO WAY he will ever investigate this and sure as hell he will NEVER prosecute those attempting to put the Democrat in the Whitehouse even if it is by fraud.

    Check out this paragraph from Wickapedia- Political Machines.

    Smaller communities as Parma, Ohio in the post-Cold War Era under Prosecutor Bill Mason’s “Good Old Boys” and especially communities in the Deep South, where small-town machine politics are relatively common also feature what might be classified as political machines, although these organizations do not have the power and influence of the larger boss networks listed in this article. For example, the “Cracker Party” was a Democratic Party political machine that dominated city politics in Augusta, Georgia for over half of the 20th century
