I can gurrantee if Obama wins the election...the republicans will delay the offical results like in 2000 with the democrats...just much longer....Especialy in Ohio an florida as revenge! [Big Grin]

They will play the Acorn card for all its worth, if Mccain loses!!!

The Republicans are already claiming Ohio is a mess and the election results might be in accurate....I think this is just a hint of what will come! Also Republicans in florida are claiming the same!

Making Sense of ACORN

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/josh-brusin/making-sense-of-acorn_b_134538.html

It seems that ACORN is the GOP scapegoat this year. They tipped their hands when they labeled Obama a dastardly "community organizer" repeatedly at their convention. That was before this hullabaloo hit the media. ACORN stands for "Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now." The GOP claims that thousands of fraudulent voter registrations have been submitted. They may be right, but their solution is flatly un-American.

Currently early voting facilities are closed in Indiana -- in districts that lean Dem of course. The evidence of fraud, anecdotal mostly, is primarily that people paid to turn in registrations were making them up, the most recent fake being Mickey Mouse. There are other stories about addicts and criminals hired to register voters: nothing that speaks to a conspiracy but rather opportunistic criminals looking to make a few quick bucks. In Nevada college Democrats fought to kick ACORN off campus. Out of the 1.3 million voters registered there are 10,000 registrations in question. Not all are patently fraudulent. They also could have incorrect or incomplete information. In Colorado where there are no stories of impropriety, there are still charges of fraud.

So what do you do? If you're the GOP, you want to close the polls and challenge the registration with the explicit goal of eliminating as many votes from these districts as possible. One of the most reprehensible planks in the GOP is their voter disenfranchisement efforts and this fits right in.

Why is that a bad idea? In a nutshell (pun intended) voter registration fraud is a crime but prohibiting someone's right to vote is a bigger crime. When Mickey Mouse comes to the poll that's when you challenge. The worst thing is to disallow 1.3 million votes on the basis of a fraudulent 10,000 registrants who aren't very likely to even vote. That's another example of the tried and true GOP tactic of voter caging.

ACORN Voter Registration Drive Under Fire

http://www.wftv.com/politics/17706113/detail.html?rss=orlc&psp=news

Central Florida Republicans are accusing the left-leaning group ACORN of trying to hijack the upcoming election.

ACORN has been working to register voters but some of the forms it has brought to elections offices have been filled with problems. Complaints include everything from voter registration forms that were filled out with illegible handwriting, to forms that were completely made up.

With the help of ACORN, someone named Davonte Rogers filled out 21 different voter registration forms. Some had wrong phone numbers, others phony addresses. In fact, it's questionable whether Davonte Rogers even exists. Some say he may have been made up by Orange County ACORN workers who were paid to collect registration forms.

Problems such as this prompted Orange County's Supervisor of Elections to send the group a letter saying its workers are "hurting the very people ACORN intends to help."

In Seminole County, a man's party registration was changed without him knowing.

Local Republicans are crying foul.

"I think ACORN is an apologetic, quasi-criminal group full of folks who are really trying to hijack the election," said Jason Brodeur, the McCain/Palin '08 Seminole County Chairman.

But ACORN says out of the more 15,000 new Florida voters it registered this year, there have been few errors. The group says it goes to extensive lengths to check the validity of paperwork and workers even flag registration forms found with problems for election offices. If the group finds a bad form, it is still legally obligated to turn it in.

"This is just a ploy of the right wing, the RNC, the Republicans and John McCain to suppress the vote," said LeRoy Bell of ACORN.

ACORN says it does require its workers to reach certain goals. However, in the cases locally where it appears that phony forms have been turned in ACORN said it fired or disciplined the employees involved. It has more than 13,000 paid people who canvass.

You do realize that Mickey Mouse could never vote, right?

Just as he could never be elected president even if a majority voted for him as a write in choice.

I'd love to be able to report that ACORN is an up-front, stand-up nonprofit organization.

However...

I can't.

I signed up with them as part of their "fight predatory lending" campaign. They promised a lot and delivered absolutely nothing. I went to a meeting that was more about THEM getting new members than it was about helping folks who needed help, right AT THE MOMENT.

We traded a few phone calls after that...long story short? They were useless, to me.

I have no doubt that Mickey Mouse would be a better President and VP, than John Mccain and Sarah Palin....

By the way...Sarah Palin is way more entertaing character than Micky Mouse could ever be...just her voice alone [Big Grin]

Looks like the Repubs' have their own little ACORNish issues now.

Ontario police arrest man in voter fraud case
Mark Jacoby, who owns a firm hired by the California Republican Party, violated state laws with his own registration, authorities say.


By Evan Halper
Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

October 20, 2008

SACRAMENTO — The owner of a firm that the California Republican Party hired to register tens of thousands of voters this year was arrested in Ontario over the weekend on suspicion of voter registration fraud.

State and local investigators allege that Mark Jacoby fraudulently registered himself to vote at a childhood California address where he no longer lives so he would appear to meet the legal requirement that all signature gatherers be eligible to vote in California. His firm, Young Political Majors, or YPM, collects petition signatures and registers voters in California and other states.

Jacoby's arrest by state investigators and the Ontario Police Department late Saturday came after dozens of voters said they were duped into registering as Republicans by people employed by YPM. The voters said YPM workers tricked them by saying they were signing a petition to toughen penalties against child molesters.

The firm was paid $7 to $12 for every Californian it registered as a member of the GOP.

Dan Goldfine, an attorney for Jacoby, on Sunday denied any wrongdoing by his client and called the charges "baseless."

He said the arrest outside an Ontario hotel, which involved seven squad cars and nine police officers, was part of a "long pattern of harassment against Mr. Jacoby for an entirely valid voter registration effort."

Goldfine said the case that prosecutors are bringing against his client involves charges that are rarely pressed.

Jacoby was released on bail Sunday evening from the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, Goldfine said.

After complaints by voters and Democratic Party officials, several agencies launched investigations into Jacoby's activities. They included the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, which issued the warrant for his arrest earlier this month on felony charges of voter registration fraud and perjury.

"We contacted people at the addresses where he registered, and they have no idea who he is," said Dave Demerjian, head deputy of the public integrity unit at the L.A. County district attorney's office.

Goldfine said his client does business in many states, traveling frequently, and his permanent address has been his parents' Los Angeles County home, where he received mail and registered to vote.

Demerjian said his office is continuing to investigate allegations that YPM workers improperly re-registered voters with the GOP.

Several dozen voters recently told The Times that YPM workers said they had to become Republicans to sign the petition, contrary to California initiative law. Other voters said they had no idea their registration was being changed.

YPM has been accused of using bait-and-switch tactics across the country. Election officials and lawmakers have launched investigations into the activities of YPM workers in Florida and Massachusetts. In Arizona, the firm was recently a defendant in a civil rights lawsuit.

In a written statement Sunday, the state Republican Party called the charges against Jacoby "politically motivated." The party said the charges do not support accusations from voters and Democratic officials that YPM has been duping voters into joining the GOP.

The statement accused Secretary of State Debra Bowen, who announced the arrest, of "using her office to play politics."

Bowen is a Democrat.

Hey, this sounds like maybe the republicans may be right. After all, who is better qualified to recognize "political motivation" that is behind false charges of "voter fraud". They know that game inside and out.

The 2000 Florida thing wasn't first recognized by the democrats, but by the voters.

The scapegoat was the American people, who have had dubya and constant republican efforts to undermine the Constitution since then.

Pigs do fly, cow. You can see that every time you deny being a trash talking republican parrot.

The Truth About ACORN's Voter Registration Drive
by Bertha Lewis and Steve Kest

Election Day is less than a month away, and our efforts to make sure that low-income and minority voters have a voice and vote on November 4th are in full swing. Unfortunately, just as we've seen in previous election cycles, the more success we have in empowering these voters, the more attacks we have to fend off from partisan forces making unfounded accusations to disparage our work and help maintain the status quo of an unbalanced electorate. We want to take this opportunity to separate the facts of our successes from the falsehoods of our attackers.

On Monday, October 6, as voter registration deadlines passed in most states, ACORN completed the largest, most successful nonpartisan voter registration drive in history. In partnership with the nonpartisan organization Project Vote, we helped register over 1.3 million low-income, minority, and young voters in a total of 21 states. Highlights of this success include:

We collected over 151,000 registrations in Florida, 153,000 in Pennsylvania, 215,000 in Michigan, and nearly 250,000 in Ohio.

An estimated 60-70 percent of our applicants are people of color.

At least HALF of all are registrations are from young people between 18-29.

We are proud of this unprecedented success, and grateful to everyone who supported us in this massive effort, from our funders and partners to the literally thousands of hardworking individuals across the country who dedicated themselves to the cause and conducted the difficult work of registering 1.3 million Americans, one voter at a time.

And this work is far from over: now begins our effort mobilize these new voters around local and national issues, getting them to the polls and helping to channel their commitment and conviction into an ongoing movement for change in our communities.

As The Nation pointed out recently, ACORN's success in registering millions of low-income and minority voters has made it "something of a right-wing bogeyman." Though ACORN believes that the right to vote is not, and should never be, a partisan issue, attacks from groups threatened by our historic success continue to come, motivated by partisan politics and often perpetuated by the media without full investigation of the facts. As a result, there have been a few recent stories about investigations of former ACORN workers for turning in incomplete, erroneous, or fraudulent voter registration applications. Predictably, partisan forces have tried to use these isolated incidents to incite fear of the "bogeyman" of "widespread voter fraud." But we want to take this opportunity to set the record straight and tell you a few facts to show how these incidents really exemplify everything that ACORN is doing right:

Fact: ACORN has implemented the most sophisticated quality-control system in the voter engagement field, but in almost every state we are required to turn in ALL completed applications, even the ones we know to be problematic.

Fact: ACORN flags incomplete, problem, or suspicious cards when we turn them in, but these warnings are often ignored by election officials. Often these same officials then come back weeks or months later and accuse us of deliberately turning in phony cards.

Fact: Our canvassers are paid by the hour, not by the card, so there is NO incentive for them to falsify cards. ACORN has a zero-tolerance policy for deliberately falsifying registrations, and in the relatively rare cases where our internal quality controls have identified this happening we have fired the workers involved and turned them in to election officials and law-enforcement.

Fact: No charges have ever been brought against ACORN itself. Convictions against individual former ACORN workers have been accomplished with our full cooperation, using the evidence obtained through our quality control and verification processes.

Fact: Voter fraud by individuals is extremely rare, and incredibly difficult. There has never been a single proven case of anyone, anywhere, casting an illegal vote as a result of a phony voter registration. Even if someone wanted to influence the election this way, it would not work.

Fact: Most election officials have recognized ACORN's good work and praised our quality control systems. Even in the cities where election officials have complained about ACORN, the applications in question represent less than 1% of the thousands and thousands of registrations ACORN has collected.

Fact: Our accusers not only fail to provide any evidence, they fail to suggest a motive: there is virtually no chance anyone would be able to vote fraudulently, so there is no reason to deliberately submit phony registrations. ACORN is committed to ensuring that the greatest possible numbers of people are registered and allowed to vote, so there is also NO incentive to "disrupt the system" with phony cards.

Fact: Similar accusations were made, and attacks launched, against ACORN and other voter registration organizations in 2004 and 2006. These attacks were not only groundless, they have since been exposed as part of the U.S. Attorneygate scandal and revealed to be part of a systematic partisan agenda of voter suppression.

These are the facts, and the truth is that a relatively small group of political operatives are trying to orchestrate hysteria about "voter fraud" and manufacture public outrage that they can use to further suppress the votes of millions of low-income and minority Americans.

These tactics are nothing new, and history has shown that they will come to nothing. We'll continue to weather the storm, as we've done for years, and we'll continue to share the truth about our work and express pride about our accomplishments.
Most importantly, we want to assure you that this good work continues, unabated and undeterred. ACORN will not be intimidated, we will not be provoked, and in this important moment in history we will not allow anyone to distract us from these vital efforts to empower our constituencies and our communities to speak for themselves. If the partisan political machines are afraid of low-income and minority voters, they're going to have to do a lot better than coming after ACORN.

After all, there are now at least 1.3 million more of them, and they will not be silenced. They're taking an interest, and taking a stand, and they'll be taking their concerns to the voting booth in November.

And ACORN will be here, to make sure that the voices of these Americans are heard, on Election Day and for every day to come.

Bertha Lewis is a senior organizer for ACORN. Steve Kest is ACORN's Executive Director. ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is the nation's largest community organization of low- and moderate-income families, working together for social justice and stronger communities.

Sadly, bond, the republicans do not read or want factual information, preferring, instead, to run about chortling sh-t they quote from Hannity and Coulter and the felon, Fat Rush, the Doper.

Their intent, including McCain's, is one of repeating a lie so often and so loudly as to drown out the truth and make the simple think the noisy lies they generate is truth.

Obama and McCain report to the same masters

it doen't matter who wins, just how people perceive, the results will be the same in long run

both parties serve the same masters, how long and how much evidence does anyone need to believe this,

i could post for the next year 24/7 showing absolute proof and still the masses deny

from msnbc, cpsan, pbs,fox,abc all interviews over the years proving this,congress, senate, governmnent sites, high ranking world officials, but still most deny

clinton( bill and hillary) and bush jr and sr, mcain and obama are are only here to take orders from people that run the world show- either comply and shut up or start learning before its too late for all of us

o_t,

I'm not sure just exactly what you have bought in to, but I can see it fits you to a T.

And should you try posting "the next year 24/7", as you threaten, you still won't be making sense.

In your case, a monkey with a typewriter and infinite time never writes anything credible or even intelligible.

Dubya will too, even if he gets thrown in jail where he belongs.

learned a long time ago the masses are asses,
and unfortunately this makes up most all of this country and world, sheep, pigs for slaughter and mind control

the brainwash effect has taken hold quite well since wwII- people will deny the obvious till the end

at least you know whats up glassman

i can only say i have a good idea.
take the latest market problems. i knew we had problems coming, but i honestly didn't think they were as bad as they SEEM to be. they may not have even been as bad they look right now, but by calling for the 700 billion? they made sure it would get this bad, and worse.

i was looking at leverage/margin figures that showed we were at '29 levels last year and even in '06. i thought margin at 12-15 to one was excessive, and it turns out that 30-40 to one was being "used".

as far as i'm concerned this can all be traced to the trade deficits we've been running for the last 15 years...
the mortgages and the CDSes are the last straw, and credit card problems are just beginning... American Express got it's credit rating downgraded today...

Maybe it'd stop the whining about voting issues. But it would also convince a good chunk of the Christian population that we have entered the "End Times".
