Mickey Mouse tried to register to vote in Florida this summer.
Orange County elections officials rejected his application, which was stamped with the logo of the nonprofit group ACORN.-- Richard Danielson, Times Staff Writer
I smell a RAT! America should smell a RAT too. (see Mickey’s signed voter registration card below)
Question: Sen. Obama you've just stole the U.S. election what are you going to do now?
Answer: "I'm going to change the United States and take Joe the Plumber to DizzyWorld!"
As Barack Obama proceeds to dishonor America’s most sacred trust, the vote and turn the vote into some trivial “Mickey Mouse” corrupt Chicago-styled nation wide scavenger hunt for bodies; dead or alive, citizens or non-citizens, people real or fraudulently made up, and yes even Mickey Mouse. I have to wonder if Americans are so nil that they would just allow someone of Obama’s questionable national origin to desecrate one of the holiest institutions of American freedom.
Obama acts as if the lifeblood of American politics can be dallied with so easily and contaminated on his way to swearing in on the Bible or Qur’an or whatever his choice is. It’s good that there is no pledge of allegiance ceremony at the swearing in. It might be difficult for America’s parents to explain to America’s youth why the newly elected president refused to stand and put his hand over his heart in respect of what the flag represents.
That notwithstanding, where is the American outrage? The vote is being stolen right under our collective noses and we are walking right up to November 4th like sleepwalking zombies ready to hear the words which are the fruits of ill gotten gains, “President elect Barack Hussein Obama.”
When those of us like the McCain campaign attempt to sound the alert about voter fraud the Obama campaign mischaracterizes them to neutralize the truth. Obama says that McCain’s concern about voter fraud is, “a starkly political maneuver to deflect attention from the reality of the suppression strategies pursued by national, state and Republican Party committees.” The Obama campaign condemns the reports of voter registration fraud but has called the charges leveled by the McCain campaign “completely transparent and false.” Huh? Transparent and false? (see story)
Oh is that so Senator Obama?
According to Senator Obama’s campaign, talk about ACORN and voter fraud is but the rantings of a campaign that is desperately grasping at straws in a losing effort and nothing more.
If the above Obama counter charges are true then, according to the Wall Street Journal what about the Michigan Secretary of State who told the press in September that Acorn had submitted "a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications." And earlier this month, Nevada's Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller requested a raid on Acorn's offices, following complaints of false names and fictional addresses (including the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys). And also Nevada's Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said he saw rampant fraud in 2,000 to 3,000 applications Acorn submitted weekly.
Sen. Obama what about officials in Ohio who are investigating voter fraud connected with Acorn, and Florida's Seminole County which is withholding Acorn registrations that appear fraudulent? New Mexico, North Carolina and Missouri are looking into hundreds of dubious Acorn registrations. Wisconsin is investigating Acorn employees for, according to an election official, "making people up or registering people that were still in prison."
Then there's Lake County, Indiana, which has already found more than 2,100 bogus applications among the 5,000 Acorn dumped right before the deadline. "All the signatures looked exactly the same," said Ruthann Hoagland, of the county election board. Bridgeport, Connecticut estimates about 20% of Acorn's registrations were faulty. As of July, the city of Houston had rejected or put on hold about 40% of the 27,000 registration cards submitted by Acorn.
That's just this year. In 2004, four Acorn employees were indicted in Ohio for submitting false voter registrations. In 2005, two Colorado Acorn workers were found to have submitted false registrations. Four Acorn Missouri employees were indicted in 2006; five were found guilty in Washington state in 2007 for filling out registration forms with names from a phone book.
This brings us to Mr. Obama, who according to the Wall Street Journal got his start as a Chicago “community organizer” at Acorn’s side. In 1992 he led voter registration efforts as the director of Project Vote, which included Acorn. This past November, he lauded Acorn's leaders for being "smack dab in the middle" of that effort. Mr. Obama also served as a lawyer for Acorn in 1995, in a case against Illinois to increase access to the polls.
During his tenure on the board of Chicago's Woods Fund, that body funneled more than $200,000 to Acorn. More recently, the Obama campaign paid $832,000 to an Acorn affiliate. The campaign initially told the Federal Election Commission this money was for "staging, sound, lighting." It later admitted the cash was to get out the vote.
$832,000 dollars paid from the Obama Campaign to ACORN this year for voter fraud at worst or registering voters at the very least connects Obama to ACORN not in the past but now, in this election.
We’ve seen ACORN’s miserable record and we can no longer give them the benefit of the doubt. They are a continuing criminal enterprise funded by tax payer’s money to undermine democracy.
That sentiment applies to Sen. Obama too. We’ve heard all of the lies, double talk, changing of the subject to blame the Bush administration, attacks against the McCain campaign and enough is enough!
As Gov. Palin has declared it is time that Sen. Obama reign in ACORN. (see story) It is time that Sen. Obama disavows and repudiates ACORN. And while ACORN is under suspicion of voter fraud Sen. Obama must call on ACORN to immediately cease and desist Nationally any and all efforts in the 2008 election to “get out the vote.”
Or else Sen. Obama and ACORN would have managed to make this election nothing more than a “Mickey Mouse” election.
And should he win Sen. Obama’s creditability would be nothing more than that of a Black “Mickey Mouse” President who gained the Presidency undeservedly by stealing the 2008 election!
