and now ACORN works for Obama.
Obama's campaign paid a division of ACORN $800,000 to register Democrats to get out the vote for Obama. ACORN is getting out the vote alright, so much that they have registered many people many times over. In some counties in Ohio more people are registered to vote than live there. ACORN is currently being investigated in several states and voter registration records are currently being seized by the Feds. In one area alone 8,500 dead people were registered to vote this election cycle. Didn't they think anyone would notice? It's going to make it hard on the completely innocent person who only registered once to vote, because their registration might be among those seized & confiscated.
Many people are coming forward and admitting that they registered 15 or 16 times to vote because they don't want to get in trouble. Some registered as many as 70 times. Can you imagine making 70 trips, standing in line in different locations and voting 70 times. It's a federal crime. Of course some of these people have already cast their vote(s) in the states where you have early voting.
This election is going to last way past election day, the way things are going right now. We might not know who wins this election for several months. Election fraud goes on every election cycle and I'm sure that the Republicans have had their share of election fraud too. I just don't understand why people have to cheat and make things harder for the rest of us.
ACORN is currently trying to put the blame on the people they hired to do the foot work, but I saw an interview with a lady on TV that said that she was instructed to register democrats only and also she was instructed to tell them to vote for Obama. But if the blame is to be cast on a lone, out of control worker, then why is it so rampant throughout many states?
It's fine to organize voter registration drives, and to encourage everyone to vote, but please register & vote only once for the candidate of your choice.
