160 Counties Have More Registered Voters Than are Actually Eligible to Vote?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/08/06 20:04:09
A nonpartisan election integrity group has sent legal notices to 160 counties across the U.S. that it says have more voters on its registration rolls than actual live, eligible voters — and thus represent potential hotbeds for election fraud

The counties in question are spread across 19 states that together account for 203 electoral college votes, including six current battleground states. Among the counties are LaSalle, Ill., which True the Vote identified as having 520 percent voter registration; Jefferson, Miss. with more than 230 percent; and Hanson, S.D. with 165 percent.

True the Vote Sends Notice to 160 Counties It Says Have More Than 100 Percent Voter Registration

The Houston-based True the Vote said it has identified 160 counties across 19 states with more registered voters on their rolls than eligible live voters. This chart highlights the 19 states and how they voted in the 2008 election. (Image source: True the Vote)

    What is ACORN? The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a community-based organization that advocates for low and moderate income families founded in 1970 by Wade Rathke and Gary Delgado. Rathke, one of the most powerful hard-Left activists in America, is a former member of a radical 1960s group, the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). The Weathermen terrorist group split off from the SDS in 1969. ACORN says its priorities include better housing and wages for the poor, more community development investment from banks and governments, and better public schools. ACORN is also known for its voter registration efforts, in 2008 alone they registered 1,315,037 voters.

    Although the organization prides itself for its registration efforts, it also has a long history of scandal. In the state of Missouri in 1986, 12 ACORN members were convicted of voter fraud. But that case was not an isolated incident in the state. In December 2004, in St. Louis, six volunteers pleaded guilty of dozens of election law violations for filling out registration cards with names of dead people and other bogus information.

    What is ACORN?

    Although the organization prides itself for its registration efforts, it also has a long history of scandal. In the state of Missouri in 1986, 12 ACORN members were convicted of voter fraud. But that case was not an isolated incident in the state. In December 2004, in St. Louis, six volunteers pleaded guilty of dozens of election law violations for filling out registration cards with names of dead people and other bogus information. Authorities launched an earlier investigation after noticing that among the new voters was longtime St. Louis alderman Albert “Red” Villa, who died in 1990. The volunteers worked for “Operation Big Vote” — a branch of ACORN — in St. Louis.

    On February 10, 2005, Nonaresa Montgomery, a paid worker who ran Operation Big Vote during the run-up to the 2001 mayoral primary, was found guilty of voter fraud. Montgomery hired about 30 workers to do fraudulent voter-registration canvassing. Instead of knocking on doors, the volunteers sat at a St. Louis fast food restaurant and wrote out names and information from an outdated voter list. About 1,500 fraudulent voter registration cards were turned in. In October 2006, St. Louis election officials discovered at least 1,492 “potentially fraudulent” voter registration cards. They were all turned in by ACORN volunteers. In November 2006, 20,000 to 35,000 questionable voter registration forms were turned in by ACORN officials in Missouri. Most all of these were from St. Louis and Kansas City areas, where ACORN purportedly sought to help empower the “disenfranchised” minorities living there. But the ACORN workers weren’t just told to register new voters. The workers admitted on camera that they were coached to tell registrants to vote for Democrat Claire McCaskill. In 2007, in Kansas City, Missouri, four ACORN employees were indicted for fraud. In April of this year eight ACORN employees in St. Louis city and county pleaded guilty to federal election fraud for submitting bogus voter registrations.

    That was just Missouri. Most will be related to Acorn as they have often been in trouble with their voter drives.

    9/16/2008 - Detroit, Michigan: The Michigan branch of Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), located in Detroit, is being investigated after several municipal clerks reported fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications coming through. The majority of the fraudulent and duplicate applications are coming from the ACORN group based in Detroit, Michigan, which now has ACORN investigating the problem once again as well as the Secretary of State's Office turning over some of those applications to the U.S. Attorney's Office. According to the report, the spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State's Office, Kelly Chesney, says there is a "sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications. And it appears to be widespread."

    9/17/2008 - Bernalillo County, New Mexico: The Bernalillo County clerk has notified prosecutors that some 1,100 possibly fraudulent voter registration cards have been turned in to her office. Some cards in New Mexico’s most populous county have the same name as a voter who’s already registered, but carry a different birth date or Social Security number; some list someone else’s Social Security number; some have addresses that don’t exist, Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver said Wednesday. In one case, a series of about nine cards appears to have been taken directly from the phone book, she said. “Those are sort of the big red flags,” Toulouse Oliver said. Some of the estimated 1,100 registrations list Social Security numbers for people who already are in the county’s database of registered voters, Toulouse Oliver said. Other cards list the same name — but a different birth date — of already registered voters. Some of the people whose names appear in the list of possibly phony registrations, when called by the clerk’s office, said they never filled out the new cards changing their voter data, Toulouse Oliver said. In addition, “We do have a series of cards identified that appear to be (names) taken straight out of the phone book, Toulouse Oliver said.

    Toulouse Oliver said the potential scope of the problem has mushroomed since late last month, when the Journal reported on a forged card for Rebecca Sitterly, a former state District Court judge from Albuquerque who has been voting in the same place for nearly two decades. That card was submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, a controversial nonprofit organization that says it has handled 72,000 new voter registrations in New Mexico since January. Matthew Henderson, head organizer for the group, said the Sitterly card was set aside as a potential phony by ACORN itself and turned in to the clerk’s office with a batch of other possibly bad cards.

    Toulouse Oliver said she did not know how many cards in the current stack of questionable registrations were submitted by ACORN, though she said that group this year has done the majority of so-called third-party registrations — those that aren’t turned in by the voters themselves but are submitted by groups organized to enlist new registrants. ACORN contract workers in 2005 were investigated in connection with forged signatures on a minimum wage ballot petition, though ACORN supervisors have said political organizers now oversee the registration gathering and the group has beefed up its own quality control.

    10/7/2008 - Nevada: Authorities raided the headquarters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now on Tuesday, which now stands accused of submitting fraudulent voter registration forms. The raid follows a month long investigation into voter fraud at ACORN, which works to register low income people. Amongst the fraudulent voter registrations was the Dallas Cowboys starting line-up. Secretary of State Ross Miller said, "Tony Romo is not registered to vote in the state of Nevada, and anybody trying to pose as Terrell Owens won't be able to cast a ballot on Nov. 4." Miller said that the group submitted voter registration forms with false information, or duplicated information on multiple forms. He did not estimate how many forms received from ACORN were fraudulent.


    10/10/2008 - Crown Point, Indiana: More than 2,000 voter registration forms filed in northern Indiana's Lake County by a liberal activist group this week have turned out to be bogus, election officials said Thursday. The group -- the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN -- already faces allegations of filing fraudulent voter registrations in Nevada and faces investigations in other states. And in Lake County, home to the long-depressed steel town of Gary, the bipartisan Elections Board has stopped processing a stack of about 5,000 applications delivered just before the October 6 registration deadline after the first 2,100 turned out to be phony.

    "All the signatures looked exactly the same," Ruthann Hoagland, a Republican on the board. "Everything on the card filled out looks exactly the same."
    The forms included registrations submitted in the names of the dead -- and in one case, the name of a fast-food restaurant, Jimmy Johns. Sally LaSota, a Democrat on the board, called the forms fraudulent and said whoever filed them broke the law. "ACORN, with its intent, perhaps was good in the beginning, but went awry somewhere," LaSota said.

    Over the past four years, a dozen states have investigated complaints of fraudulent registrations filed by ACORN. On Tuesday, Nevada authorities raided an ACORN office in Las Vegas, Nevada, where workers are accused of registering members of the Dallas Cowboys football team. And the group has become the target of Republican attacks on voter fraud, a perennial GOP issue. A subsidiary of the group was paid $800,000 by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign to register voters for the 2008 primaries, and ACORN's political wing endorsed Obama back in February. But Obama's campaign told CNN that it "is committed to protecting the integrity of the voting process," and said it has not worked with ACORN during the general election. Lake County elections officials have set aside all 5,000 of the ACORN-submitted applications in what Hoagland called the "fake pile" for later review. But she said every one will be reviewed before the election to make sure no legitimate voters are skipped.

    10/10/2008 - Cleveland, Ohio: A man at the center of a voter-registration scandal told The Post yesterday he was given cash and cigarettes by aggressive ACORN activists in exchange for registering an astonishing 72 times, in apparent violation of Ohio laws. "Sometimes, they come up and bribe me with a cigarette, or they'll give me a dollar to sign up," said Freddie Johnson, 19, who filled out 72 separate voter-registration cards over an 18-month period at the behest of the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. "The ACORN people are everywhere, looking to sign people up. I tell them I am already registered. The girl said, 'You are?' I say, 'Yup,' and then they say, 'Can you just sign up again?' " he said. Johnson used the same information on all of his registration cards, and officials say they usually catch and toss out duplicate registrations. But the practice sparks fear that some multiple registrants could provide different information and vote more than once by absentee ballot. ACORN is under investigation in Ohio and at least eight other states - including Missouri, where the FBI said it's planning to look into potential voter fraud - for over-the-top efforts to get as many names as possible on the voter rolls regardless of whether a person is registered or eligible. It's even under investigation in Bridgeport, Conn., for allegedly registering a 7-year-old girl to vote, according to the State Elections Enforcement Commission.

    Meanwhile, a federal judge yesterday ordered Ohio's Secretary of State to verify the identity of newly registered voters by matching them with other government documents. The order was in response to a Republican lawsuit unrelated to the ACORN probe in Cuyahoga County, in which at least three people, including Johnson, have been subpoenaed. Bribing citizens with gifts, property or anything of value is a fourth-degree felony in Ohio, punishable by up to 18 months in prison. And it's a fifth-degree felony - punishable by 12 months in jail - for a person to pay "compensation on a fee-per-registration" system when signing up someone to vote. Johnson, who works at a cellphone kiosk in downtown Cleveland, said he was a sitting duck for the signature hunters, but was always happy to help them out in exchange for a smoke or a little scratch. He'd collected 10 to 20 cigarettes and anywhere from $10 to $15, he said.

    The Cleveland voting probe, first reported by The Post yesterday, also focused on Lateala Goins, who said she put her name on multiple voter registrations. She guessed ACORN canvassers then put fake addresses on them. "You can tell them you're registered as many times as you want - they do not care," she said. ACORN spokesman Kris Harsh said the group does not tolerate its workers paying people to sign the voter-registration cards. ACORN's political wing has endorsed Barack Obama for president, but Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for the Obama campaign in Ohio, said ACORN has no role in its get-out-the-vote drive. During the primary season, however, the Obama camp paid another group, Citizen Service Inc., $832,598 for various political services, according to Federal Elections Commission filings. That group and ACORN share the same board of directors. In Wisconsin yesterday, John McCain blasted ACORN. "No one should be corrupting the most precious right we have, that is the right to vote," he said. It's a right Johnson will exercise. "Yeah, I've registered enough - I might as well vote."

    10/10/2008 - Durham, North Carolina: State Board of Elections officials are trying to determine whether about 100 voter registration forms submitted by a local chapter of a national grassroots organization to the Durham County Board of Elections are fraudulent. Similar accusations have been lodged across the country against the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which goes by the name ACORN.

    In Durham, the claims were made last month after the group submitted about 5,000 voter registration forms to the county board of elections. "All of a sudden, I started seeing the same names over and over again," said Mike Ashe, county elections director. He said some forms had similar names but different addresses or dates of birth. Durham election workers enter the information from a registration form into a system that verifies voters' Social Security and driver's license numbers. Another elections employee re-confirms the information.

    10/10/2008 - Houston, Texas: In states across the country, investigators are looking into numerous claims of phony voter registrations through ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Complaints of fraud are being checked out in several states. And there are questions about voter registrations here in Houston, as well. Thousands of our neighbors are newly registered voters. There were big efforts to get them on the roll. "We would hope that everyone shares that goal, regardless of party," said Ginny Goldman with ACORN. "To get every single person who's eligible on the rolls and engaged in voting."

    Of the 30,000 registration cards ACORN turned in, Bettencourt says just more than 20,000 are valid. And just look at some of the places ACORN was finding those voters. A church just next door is the address for around 150 people. More than 250 people claim a homeless outreach center as their home address. Some listed a county mental health facility as their home and one person even wrote down the Harris County Jail at the Sheriff's Office.

    "It's all on the honor system, Tom," said Bettencourt. "The entire voter registration system in the country is on the honor system because there is no list of citizens in the United States." "It's just the last 30 days of the election season when all the sudden the attacks that we expected to come are coming," said Goldman. "So we we've been waiting for this, unfortunately." ACORN defends its voter registration process and calls the people whose names are on the cards. But the county says that no matter what it or ACORN does, there are people and registration cards that shouldn't be there that fall through the cracks.

    10/11/2008 - [...]In Milwaukee, where ACORN turned in at least 33,000 registrations, the group improperly used felons as registration workers. Additionally, its workers are among 49 cases of bad registrations sent to authorities for possible charges, as first reported by the Journal Sentinel. A city election official said Friday that about 90% of the 49 cases were workers for ACORN, with nearly all of the rest part of the Community Voters Project. The 49 individuals submitted about 300 registration cards, all sent to authorities for review. So far, two people, both with the voters project, have been charged with felonies.[...]

    10/17/2008, Kansas City, Missouri: The Kansas City election board is reporting 100 duplicate applications and 280 with fake information. Acorn officials agreed that at least 4% of their registrations were bogus. Governor Matt Blunt condemned the attempts by ACORN to commit voter fraud.

    Included in their voting fraud history was: 2010, An alleged voter fraud case has emerged in Missouri District 40 where it appears dead people registered to vote. A Missouri appellate panel will rule by Oct. 15 on allegations of voter fraud in a state house district primary. There were 15 counties that showed more registered voters than people 18 and older for the 2010 election, the highest being Reynolds County at 125.8%. Twelve of these counties also had more than 100 percent registration in 2008. Oct. 17 2008, The FBI in Kansas City investigated 600 to 800 "questionable" voter registrations from 19,000 submitted by ACORN in Kansas City. In 2007, The American Center for Voting Rights had been active in studies of potential voter fraud in Missouri, but all but disappeared. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the Center's staff members cannot be found and its website is gone. The chief counsel for the center had been St. Louis-based lawyer Thor Hearne, a well-known Republican activist. In 2006, eight workers for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) pleaded guilty to federal election fraud. The group had submitted false names, addresses and signatures, possibly motivated for higher pay for more false voter applications; Kwaim A Stenson was sentenced to four years and five days for voter registration fraud; The Kansas City Election board found suspicious forms, including a voter application from a dead man, and one person filing seven applications.

    5/9/2009 - NV, WA, PA: Democrats are split on how to deal with Acorn, the liberal "community organizing" group that deployed thousands of get-out-the-vote workers last election. State and city Democratic officials -- who've been contending with its many scandals -- are moving against it. Washington Democrats are still sweeping Acorn abuses under a rug.

    On Monday, Nevada officials charged Acorn, its regional director and its Las Vegas field director with submitting thousands of fraudulent voter registration forms last year. Larry Lomax, the registrar of voters in Las Vegas, says he believes 48% of Acorn's forms "are clearly fraudulent." On Thursday, prosecutors in Pittsburgh, Pa., also charged seven Acorn employees with filing hundreds of fraudulent voter registrations before last year's general election. Acorn spokesman Scott Levenson calls the Nevada criminal complaint "political grandstanding" and says that any problems were the actions of an unnamed "bad employee." But Catherine Cortez Masto, Nevada's Democratic Attorney General, told the Las Vegas Sun that Acorn itself is named in the criminal complaint. She says that Acorn's training manuals "clearly detail, condone and . . . require illegal acts," such as requiring its workers to meet strict voter-registration targets to keep their jobs. Other Democrats on the ground have complaints. Fred Voight, deputy election commissioner in Philadelphia, protested after Acorn (according to the registrar of voters and his own investigation) submitted at least 1,500 fraudulent registrations last fall. "This has been going on for a number of years," he told CNN in October. St. Louis Democrat Matthew Potter, the city's deputy elections director, had similar complaints.

    Elsewhere, Washington state prosecutors fined Acorn $25,000 after several employees were convicted of voter registration fraud in 2007. The group signed a consent decree with King County (Seattle), requiring it to beef up its oversight or face criminal prosecution. In the 2008 election, Acorn's practices led to investigations, some ongoing, in 14 other states. The stink is bad enough that some congressional Democrats have taken notice. At a March 19 hearing on election problems, Michigan Rep. John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, pressed New York Rep. Gerald Nadler, chairman of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, to hold a hearing on Acorn. He called the charges against it "serious." Mr. Nadler agreed to consider the request. Mr. Nadler's office now says there will be no hearing on Acorn because Mr. Conyers has changed his mind. Mr. Conyers's office released a statement on Monday saying that after reviewing "the complaints against Acorn, I have concluded that a hearing on this matter appears unwarranted at this time." A Democratic staffer told me he believes the House leadership put pressure on Mr. Conyers to back down. Mr. Conyers's office says it is "unaware" of any contacts with House leaders. Then there's Barney Frank, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. Last month, he voted for a committee amendment (to the Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act) by Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R., Minn.) to block groups indicted for voter fraud from receiving federal housing or legal assistance grants. Identical language was passed into law in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. Mr. Frank now says he "had not read [the amendment] carefully" before backing it. He gutted the amendment on Thursday, claiming that the language Congress passed just last year is "a violation of the basic principles of due process."

    A lot of money is at stake. In the stimulus bill passed by Congress, Acorn is eligible -- along with other activist groups -- to apply for $2 billion in funds to redevelop abandoned and foreclosed homes. Meanwhile, public records show that last spring the IRS filed three tax liens totaling almost $1 million against Acorn, most of which concerned employee withholding. All of this infuriates Marcel Reid, who, along with seven other national Acorn board members, was removed last year after demanding an audit of the group's books. "Acorn has been hijacked by a power-hungry clique that has its own political and personal agendas," she told me. "We are fighting to take back the group." Bertha Lewis, the head of Acorn, told me last year before their ouster that the "Acorn Eight" were "obsessed" and "confused." But Anita MonCrief, an Acorn whistleblower, says the problems run deep. Ms. MonCrief worked at Project Vote, an Acorn affiliate, in late 2007. She says its development director, Karen Gillette, told her she had direct contact with the Obama campaign and also told her to call Obama donors who had maxed out on donations to the candidate but who could contribute to Acorn. Project Vote calls her charges "absolutely false." (Ms. Gillette has declined comment.)

    Acorn's relationship to the Obama campaign is a matter of public record. Last year, Citizens Consulting Inc., the umbrella group controlling Acorn, was paid $832,000 by the Obama campaign for get-out-the-vote efforts in key primary states. In filings with the Federal Election Commission, the campaign listed the payments as "staging, sound, lighting," only correcting them after reporters from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review revealed their true nature. Mr. Obama distanced himself from the group's scandals last year, saying "We don't need Acorn's help." Nevertheless, he got his start as a community organizer at Acorn's side. In 1992, he headed a registration effort for Project Vote, an Acorn partner at the time. In 1995, he represented Acorn in a key case upholding the new Motor Voter Act -- the very law whose mandated postcard registration system Acorn workers use to flood election offices with bogus registrations. But Acorn's registration tricks may soon be unnecessary. Congressional Democrats are backing a bill to mandate a nationwide data base to automatically register driver's license holders or recipients of government benefits. This "would create an engraved invitation for voter fraud," says Hans von Spakovsky, a former Federal Election Commission member, who points out that these lists are filled with felons and noncitizens who are ineligible to vote. Ironically, in light of its troubles with the law, Acorn was selected in March to assist the U.S. Census in reaching out to minority communities and recruiting census enumerators for the count next year. As for the Nevada indictment, Acorn isn't worried. "We've had bad publicity before, and all it does is inform the community that we're here working for the community," Bonnie Greathouse, Acorn's head organizer in Nevada, assured the Las Vegas Review-Journal this week. "People always come forward to our defense. We're just community organizers, just like the president used to be."



    9/9/2009 - Florida: Arrest warrants were issued Wednesday for 11 Florida voter registration workers who are suspected of submitting false information on hundreds of voter registration cards, according to court documents. The FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement were serving the warrants in Miami. Six people are already in custody, officials said. The workers were employed by ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, to canvass neighborhoods in Florida and assist people in registering to vote ahead of the 2008 election. The problems were concentrated in the region around Homestead, Florida, south of Miami, according to an affidavit filed in the case. Authorities allege the workers submitted false information on the cards, which were to be submitted to the Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections. A spokesman for the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office told CNN Wednesday that the investigation was actually initiated by ACORN, after its own quality control inspectors discovered a problem with some of the voter registration cards submitted by its canvassers. ACORN then brought its findings to law enforcement. According to the affidavit, of the 1,400 voter registration cards turned in by the workers in question, nearly 900 were determined to be fraudulent. A random sampling of 40 of the suspect cards found that at least 37 of the registrations could not be matched to a living person, the document said.

    8/11/2011 - North Carolina: Three Wake County, North Carolina, Democrats have admitted to voter fraud charges, according to local news reports. Kierra Fontae Leache, Shelia Romona Hodges and Brandon Earl Mclean each admitted to casting two ballots in recent elections. Local reports indicate all three voted for President Barack Obama twice in 2008. Authorities have placed the three on $10,000 bonds.


    9/7/2010 - Texas: “Vote early, and vote often.” That saying sums up the outlook of the Chicago “political mob” that is infamous for fixing elections, from the days of Al Capone to Sam Giancana’s 1960 deal with JFK to more recent times. In a new documentary, “We Will Not Be Silenced 2008,” filmmaker and lifelong Democrat Gigi Gaston provides evidence that the Obama camp utilized an array of strong-arm tactics to manipulate the caucus process during his primary run against Hillary Clinton.

    This writer began a recent interview with Ms. Gaston by stating, “After watching your film, it appears as if the DNC, mainstream media and those who oversee the electoral process decided that Obama was going to defeat Hillary come hell or high water.” Gaston responded: “I agree. They won by being brutes. One person, one vote has always been the great equalizer. But if we don’t fix the system now, we’re going to lose our republic. They’ll control the votes for the rest of our lives.”

    In her documentary, Gaston focuses specifically on primary caucuses where instead of individual ballots being cast, a political party allows groups of delegates to form coalitions before deciding upon the victor. The word “caucus” is derived from an Algonquian word meaning “a gathering of tribal chiefs.” Today, these chieftains are corrupt political bosses. Gaston explained precisely how the Philadelphia Black Panther case relates to the caucus situation. “Obama’s people would stand at the door of a polling place and intimidate voters wearing Hillary buttons. Usually they targeted those who were weakest, such as the elderly, poor, blacks and Hispanics. Oftentimes they would deliberately fail to locate their names in the registration books, or send them to incorrect precincts.” Other tactics were more brutal. Gaston continued, “There are reports that one woman in a wheelchair was thrown down a flight of stairs. Obama’s representatives also copied names out of phone books into the caucus logs, or destroyed Hillary’s sign-in sheets.”

    In her film, Gaston cites Dr. Linda Hayes, a Houston, Texas precinct worker. “The Obama camp’s philosophy is simple: we have the numbers; we don’t have to follow your rules. So, they overwhelm the system with illegal signatures, create chaos and steal the election.” She also documents the doctoring of delegate lists, how roll call voters were pressured to support Obama, the harassment of campaign workers, and even an instance in Gary, Ind., where schoolchildren were bussed into a polling place to sign caucus sheets for Obama. In Texas, despite Hillary winning the popular vote, Obama’s people played the system enough to rig the outcome and emerge victorious. When asked if Mrs. Clinton was aware of this damning proof, Gaston replied, “I personally handed my film to her at the Democratic National Convention. I also presented it to senior advisor Ann Lewis, party activist John Siegel and the DNC’s chairperson. None of them has responded to these charges.”

    Further, she presented this crucial evidence to MSNBC, CNN, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly—and even spoke directly with Sean Hannity during his radio show. The only person willing to highlight this rampant corruption was Alisyn Camerota of Fox & Friends. This AFP writer asked Gaston if she felt that Chicago’s criminal cabal was behind these malicious practices. “I don’t have verifiable proof, but all roads point in that direction,” said Ms. Gaston. “Plus, everyone in the Democratic Party who investigates voter fraud belongs to the Obama camp. Even worse, they plan on having more caucuses in 2012, which means it’ll be easier to lie and pull their shenanigans. So far, not one person has been punished.”

    This cover-up extends to the highest levels of power. “From what I understand,” Gaston elaborated, “the Department of Justice is fully aware of my allegations.” Gaston’s film exposes the grotesque abuses of our electoral process, with the caucus system being comparable to tactics used in communist countries. In essence, Democratic Party chairpersons trump individual voting rights, issue threats against whistleblowers, while Obama’s Chicago gangsters strong arm anyone attempting to expose their widespread voting violations. As one Iowa eyewitness told Gaston, “When the machine is behind someone, they use every resource available to make sure that person wins.”

    9/31/2011 - After confessing to what appears to constitute voter fraud, high-level Democratic Party insider Andrea “Andi” Pringle has abruptly quit her post as senior aide to Washington, D.C., mayor Vincent Gray. The resignation comes as several U.S. states initiate a crackdown on voter fraud. It also comes weeks after it was reported that Lessadolla Sowers, a member of the executive board of the Tunica County, Miss., NAACP, was sentenced to five years in prison for voting 10 times in the names of other people. Like Gray, Pringle is a Democrat with strong ties to that party’s establishment.

    She was campaign manager for former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun, D-Ill., when she sought the presidency in 2004. Barack Obama helped to elect Braun to the U.S. Senate in 1992 when he ran a successful get-out-the-vote effort for ACORN subsidiary Project Vote. Pringle worked on both of Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaigns and for his National Rainbow Coalition group. ACORN endorsed Jackson’s 1984 presidential run. That year, the group went even farther, running Jackson’s campaign in New Hampshire. The voter fraud-prone ACORN was also deeply involved with the Jackson campaign in Michigan and Arkansas. In an ironic twist, Pringle worked on criminal justice issues when she was employed by radical left-wing philanthropist George Soros’s foundation, the Open Society Institute.

    Pringle was a senior political adviser for former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson’s 2008 presidential campaign. She held the same post at a political action committee for Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., Forward Together PAC. She also served as deputy campaign manager for Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential election campaign after Carol Moseley Braun dropped out of the race. Whether Pringle will be prosecuted for the felony that could land her in prison for up to 10 years reportedly will be left to the district’s U.S. attorney, Obama appointee Ronald C. Machen Jr.


    12/26/2011 - New York: Earlier this year, Republican legislators passed a voter ID law. Democrats denounced it as an effort to disenfranchise voters. Gov. John Lynch vetoed it. The claim was that there is no such thing as voter fraud. So how do Democrats explain four members of their own party pleading guilty to the crime in New York? FOX News reported last week: “A total of four Democratic officials and political operatives have now pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal a New York election.”

    The summary: “Former Troy Democratic City Clerk William McInerney, Democratic Councilman John Brown, and Democratic political operatives Anthony Renna and Anthony DeFiglio have entered guilty pleas in the case, in which numerous signatures were allegedly forged on absentee ballots in the 2009 Working Families Party primary, the political party that was associated with the now-defunct community group, ACORN.” DeFiglio told police how the election-stealing scam works: “This is an on-going scheme and it occurs on both sides of the aisle. The people who are targeted live in low-income housing and there is a sense that they are a lot less likely to ask any questions.” As you might have guessed, the State of New York does not require voters to show ID before getting a ballot. Establishing such a requirement might prevent this kind of fraud — you know, the kind that Democrats insist does not exist.
