About freaking time someone squashed this ACORN….
Sorry I’m so late with this one. Had a dentist appointment today to get a new crown and was away from the Zionist Conspiracy Central Information Desk for a few hours.
From Michelle Malkin:
The Buckeye Institute, a Columbus-based think tank, today filed a state RICO action against the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) on behalf of two Warren County voters. The action filed in Warren County Court of Common Pleas alleges ACORN has engaged in a pattern of corrupt activity that amounts to organized crime. It seeks ACORN’s dissolution as a legal entity, the revocation of any licenses in Ohio, and an injunction against fraudulent voter registration and other illegal activities.
Plaintiffs Jennifer Miller of Mason, Ohio and Kimberly Grant of Loveland, allege that ACORN’s actions deprive them of the right to participate in an honest and effective elections process. They allege fraudulent voter registrations submitted by ACORN dilute the votes of legally registered voters.
“The right to cast a vote that is not diluted by fraudulent votes is a fundamental individual right,” Buckeye Institute President David Hansen said.
“ACORN appears to be recklessly disregarding Ohio laws and adding thousands of fraudulent voters to the state’s roles in the process,” Maurice Thompson, Director of the Buckeye Institute’s 1851 Center for Constitutional Law said. “Such voter fraud erodes the value of legally cast votes,” he added.
In the complaint, Thompson cites an accumulation of evidence showing numerous instances of admitted fraud by ACORN employees, as well as individuals solicited by ACORN.
“In light of its hiring, training and compensation practices, ACORN should have known its conduct would cause fraud,” Thompson said. “It also should know that its conduct will cause fraud in the future.”
In addition, the complaint cites conduct by ACORN in Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
You know what would bring crap like this to screeching halt? Require Photo ID when voting. One problem though….Democrats don’t like that. It prevents them from cheating you see and g-d knows if anyones going to cheat at an election, it damn well is going to be a Democrat.
It’s now being reported that Obama is mentioned 3 times in the RICO complaint against ACORN. While Obama is yet to be named as a defendant in the charges, the connections between Obama and ACORN are made quite crystal clear.
From Wake Up America:
(Page 3) 18. Defendant is engaged in massive voter registration drives and political canvassing throughout the state of Ohio and the United States of America; some of this work is performed on behalf of current United States of America presidential candidate Barack Obama.
(Page 3) 19. ACORN’s political wing has endorsed Barack Obama for president, and during the primary season, the Obama camp paid Citizen Service Inc., $832,598 for various political services according to Federal Elections Commission filings. Citizen Services, Inc. and ACORN share the same board of directors.
(Page 9) 69. In Texas, where ACORN’s affiliate, Citizens Services Inc., has provided contract work on behalf of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, the Houston Chronicle reported on August 17, 2008 that “About 40 percent of the 27,000 registration cards gathered by ACORN from January through July have been rejected or placed in limbo pending the gathering of more information, according to the county” while “about 6,600 were filled out by people already registered, and many others contained insufficient information.”
I hate to get my hopes up. Atlas Shrugs seems to be on top of this and seems quite confident that perhaps Obama may be named in an indictment for his involvement with Tony Rezko.
From Atlas Shrugs:
UPDATE: Snooper advises, the RICO charges have been filed and Obama is mentioned… go here and go here too.
Perhaps we are looking at an October surprise. There are new developments to my post:PRISON TIME FOR OBAMA? and OBAMA: REZKO’S OCTOBER SURPRISE?
As Rezko starts to sing… Barack Obama might be days away from an indictment P.U.M.A.
