Surprise!… ACORN Busted- Faking Voter Registrations Again
The radical anti-capitalist group ACORN was busted again this week for turning in bogus voter registration applications- this time in Michigan.
Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.
The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN’s Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.
“There appears to be a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications,” said Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office. “And it appears to be widespread.”
Chesney said her office has had discussions with ACORN officials after local clerks reported the questionable applications to the state. Chesney said some of the applications are duplicates and some appear to be names that have been made up. The Secretary of State’s Office has turned over several of the applications to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Barack Obama’s Ties to ACORN–
According to Stanley Kurtz from National Review Online, ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is the key modern successor of the radical 1960’s “New Left,” with a “1960’s-bred agenda of anti-capitalism” and is closely linked to the Obama Campaign. Barack Obama has had an intimate and long-term association with ACORN. During the period of Obama’s service on the boards of two charitable foundations, the Woods Fund and the Joyce Foundation, he helped direct tens of millions of dollars in grants” to various liberal organizations, including Chicago Acorn. Obama also helped train leaders of this anti-capitalist organization in Chicago. According to Kurtz, “Obama’s ties to Acorn — arguably the most politically radical large-scale activist group in the country — are wide, deep, and longstanding.”
