North Carolina Reports Massive Voter Fraud in State's 2012 Election

North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-Mecklenburg) and Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued a joint statement Wednesday in response to more alarming evidence of voter error and fraud discovered by the North Carolina State Board of Elections.

Initial findings from the Board presented to the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee on Wednesday show:
  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.
These findings only take into account data from the 28 states who participated in the 2014 Interstate Crosscheck, leaving out potential voter error and fraud in the 22 states that do not participate in the consortium.

Additionally, during an audit of death records from the Department of Health and Human Services, the Board discovered:
  • 50,000 new death records that had not previously been provided to the State Board of Elections.
  • 13,416 deceased voters on the voter rolls in October 2013.
  • 81 deceased voters that had voter activity after they died.
    The findings were made possible by a new election reform law passed by the North Carolina General Assembly last year, which called on the Board to improve the accuracy of voter registration lists and combat potential fraud by cross checking information on voting records with those of other states.
    “While we are alarmed to hear evidence of widespread voter error and fraud, we are encouraged to see the common-sense law passed to ensure voters are who they say they are is working,” said Tillis and Berger. “These findings should put to rest ill-informed claims that problems don’t exist and help restore the integrity of our elections process. We appreciate the State Board of Elections bringing this critical information to light.” 

    Sunlit Uplands has learned that South Carolina participates in the Interstate Crosscheck.  We have been in touch with the South Carolina Election Commission and we will report their findings in coming days.

    Group Says It Found 30,000 Dead North Carolinians Registered to Vote

    Voter Integrity Project has no evidence of any ballots cast in their names.


    Read more here:

    A Raleigh-based group devoted to reducing the potential for voter fraud presented the N.C. Board of Elections on Friday with a list of nearly 30,000 names of dead people statewide who are still registered to vote.

    The Voter Integrity Project compiled the list after obtaining death records from the state Department of Public Health from 2002 to March 31 and comparing them to the voter rolls.

    “Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” said project director Jay DeLancy. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.”

    Feds to Florida: Halt Non-Citizen Voter Purge

    The Justice Department has ordered Florida's election division to cease purging non-citizen voters and illegal aliens from its voter rolls.  Could there be any clearer indication of the Democrat Party's reliance on voter fraud and the intent of Eric Holder, the nation's chief law enforcement officer, to sanction it in the 2012 elections.  

    One of the most important things patriotic citizens can do in the crucial election year is to become a knowledgeable poll worker or watcher who is prepared to challenge ineligible voters and  unlawful polling place activity.

    The Miami Herald has the details on this shocking story.

    New O'Keefe Video: Dead People and Clones Offered Ballots in Vermont Primary

    The video, a sequel to O'Keefe's "Primary of the Living Dead" in New Hampshire, shows a Veritas agent entering various voting places around the state of Vermont, giving a different name each time. Each time, he is given a ballot without showing an ID, to his disbelief.

    In the video, the agent repeatedly requests (but does not take) a Republican primary ballot. As he explained to "We wanted to remind viewers this is not a partisan issue. This is a situation wherein anyone -- Republican or Democrat -- can exploit the system."

    Pew Study: 2 Million Dead Americans On Active Voter Rolls

     Every 8 registrations in U.S. either invalid or has major inaccuracies

    By Josh Lederman

    Nearly 2 million dead Americans are still on active voter registries, and 1 in every 8 registrations in the United States is invalid or has major inaccuracies, according to a new study.

    Research released Tuesday by the Pew Center on the States shows that the country is spending more on voter registration while getting worse results than other nations such as Canada. The study points to antiquated systems that don’t reflect modern technology and fail to address the biggest obstacles to maintaining accurate, up-to-date voter-registry databases.

    Almost 3 million Americans are actively registered to vote in multiple states, while about 12 million have old or error-ridden addresses listed on their registrations, likely preventing voting-related mail from reaching them. And 1 in 4 eligible citizens — 51 million in total — aren’t registered to vote.

    Dead People Receive Ballots in NH Primary

    On January 10th, Project Veritas reporters walked into New Hampshire Polling Locations during the Presidential Primaries, saying dead people's names. We stated the name of a dead person we got from the NH obituaries. The names of the deceased were both Registered Republican and Democrats And in almost every case, saying a dead person's name, we were handed a ballot to cast a vote. We used no misrepresentation and no false pretenses. in fact, in almost every case, we insisted we show ID and they insisted that we vote without showing ID.

    The Democrats' Final Recourse: Massive Vote Fraud

    Obama Poll Workers

    From American Thinker
    By Selwyn Duke

    The reports are rolling in from all over the country. A Craven County, NC resident attempts to vote a straight Republican ticket but his choices come up straight Democrat four times, despite receiving assistance from poll workers. In NC's Lenoir County, registered Democrat Ervin Norville also tries to vote straight Republican but finds that his ballot has the names of several Democrat candidates selected. Boulder City, NV resident Joyce Ferrara says that when she and several others went to vote for Sharon Angle, they found that Senator Harry Reid's name was already checked off. In Dallas County, TX' congressional district 30, Democrat Eddie Bernice Johnson's name was the only one on the ballot in a few locations (no, she isn't running unopposed). And some states have been late in mailing out military absentee ballots, whose recipients, interestingly, are known for their Republican leanings.

    These happenings are generally referred to as "mistakes" and "glitches," but if that's all they are, then we're witnessing a truly historic anomaly. Because either the mainstream media is now suppressing stories of mistakes and glitches benefitting Republicans, or the laws of probability have suddenly been rescinded and tossed coins are coming up donkey tails every time. Welcome to American elections, Venezuelan style.

    I have long said that this election would see vote fraud of unprecedented magnitude. And it does seem that a perfect storm of such criminality is brewing. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just struck down an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to vote, a treasonous act that facilitates vote fraud. Of course, some liberals are more forthcoming about their intentions; in Portland, ME and New York City, there is a push to allow non-citizens to vote. Not to be outdone, San Francisco seeks to allow even illegal aliens to cast ballots in school elections. Hey, why not? They're not illegals - they're undocumented Democrats.

    Then there is the matter of the fox guarding the polling house. It has now been learned that the technicians who work on the Nevada voting machines that have been checking off Harry Reid's name are members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), a leftist organization that has given tens of millions of dollars to Democrats. (By the way, do you remember all the complaints about "antiquated" paper ballots after the 2000 election? I knew that all the talk about "hanging chads" and the need for modern technology would lead to vote fraud. After all, now elections can be swayed by a well-placed, skilled hacker and there's no paper trail.)

    Add to this the fact that the left is more brazen than ever. For one thing, laymen liberals, like their judges, are very influenced by precedent. And the liberal delusion that George W. Bush stole the 2000 election - thus drawing first blood - gives leftists a handy rationalization for actually stealing elections. Second, Barack Obama's DOJ's refusal to prosecute the Philadelphia Black Panthers - despite videotape evidence of their voter intimidation - sends the message that the left has almost carte blanche to sway elections by any means necessary.

    Most of all, though, we have to remember that leftists are, well, leftists. They are simply much more corrupt than those on the right. I know, this sounds like blind partisanship, so I'll explain.

    I'll introduce this with a point once made by former military-intelligence man Ralph Peters about how you could understand the Taliban: You have to view them as aliens. His point was that most people have trouble conceiving of mindsets radically different from their own and, consequently, often mistakenly assume that others operate by the same principles they do. Even liberals recognize this phenomenon - when they warn of "ethnocentrism." I, however, am more concerned about conservocentrism.

    If you're an average bright-eyed conservative and you really want to understand leftists, begin by viewing them as aliens. Because they really aren't like you, and the difference isn't simply ideology, either. They truly are far more dishonest, deceitful and manipulative than conservatives.

    In explaining why this is so, I'll again draw an analogy to Islamists. Many have pointed out that Western and Islamic thought dictate very different things with respect to honesty. While the West's formative religion, Christianity, teaches that lying is a sin, period, Islam states that lying to an infidel for the glory of Allah is a good. In other words, Christians can lie, but they must commit what they consider a sin to do so. Muslims can do so with what they view as divine approval.

    Another difference is that Islamic thought includes a concept known as "dual truth," which basically states, writes American Thinker's Patrick Poole, "that what may be true in the realm of religion may be contrary to what is true in nature." Thus, even if an action is forbidden in Islamic texts, Muslims may be able to take it in the "real world." It's always convenient when you have more than one "truth" with which to justify behavior.

    This brings us to liberals. Like Islamists, they have more than one "truth" from which to choose, something they readily admit to with pronouncements such as "That is your truth; someone else's might be different." To be precise, however, they use the word "truth" loosely, as a synonym for taste, and don't actually believe in Truth, properly defined (i.e., divinely ordained morality). They are moral relativists.

    What does this mean? It means the sky - or perhaps I should say the netherworld - is the limit for behavior restrictions. Unlike Islamists, they don't have to find their justifications in medieval texts or complex philosophical contortions, as their credo is simple: "If it feels good, do it." Without belief in anything that transcends man to use as a yardstick for behavior, they ultimately have nothing left to use but the "god within," which is just a gussied-up name for emotion. And their emotion-driven ends really do justify their means. If they feel conservatives are "evil," conservatives must be. And if they feel that any tactic necessary to vanquish that evil is fair game, it must be. Understand that beneath the light of their deified feelings, lying, cheating or stealing to win elections is not merely justifiable - it is a "good," and one they do with the only approval they need: self-approval. They are aliens from a planet much like the Hell described by the Devil in an old comic strip (in The New Yorker, I think) when he said, "There's no right or wrong down here. It's whatever works for you." It is a place where there is a wall of separation between man and Truth.

    And the truth is that in this election, as in every one, some races will be close enough so that vote fraud can be a factor. So how should we proceed once results are in? First, conservatives need an attitude adjustment: They have to understand the nature of their enemy (as outlined above) and become warriors. We mustn't for a moment entertain the notion that the best thing for the nation after a suspicious loss is to concede the race graciously. Rather, the best thing for the nation is to oust the alien vote-snatchers from power by any moral means necessary.

    Second, we must recognize that razor-close races almost always go Democrat for a reason (think: Al Franken in Minnesota) and view every such loss as a probable vote-fraud scenario. Then we must analyze exit polling - which has become a very precise science - for discrepancies between its findings and election results. And when they are found, the matter must be sifted to the very bottom.

    Alien vote-snatchers are worse than murderers. They not only steal votes but also our future; they undermine the rule of law and threaten the republic itself. In a saner time, they would probably be hanged. And if it becomes apparent that the government - the Eric Holder DOJ, judges and others - has become so corrupt that it will preserve its power by negating the votes of the people, then we should consider our Founding Fathers' words: "whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it...."

    Let's see if the attempt at alteration works this November 2.

    Dead Voters Alive as Justice Department Sleeps

    From Scripps Howard News Service
    By Deroy Murdock

    What is the quietest spot in Washington, D.C.? The Rose Garden? The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier? Actually, it's the Justice Department's Voting Section.

    Justice's unit that allegedly fights disenfranchisement lately has been caught dozing while at least nine states too slowly deliver absentee ballots to overseas GIs. Too many military votes thus may go uncounted in November.

    In yet another outrage, the Voting Section is static while the rolls of at least 16 states evidently list ineligible voters, including non-residents, disqualified felons, and -- yes, dead people. Justice's response? "ZZZZZZzzzzzz......"

    Even worse, the Big Sleep at Justice seems totally deliberate.

    As former Voting Section prosecutor J. Christian Adams testified under oath July 6 before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, he attended a November 2009 meeting in which Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes discussed the federal law that requires that local officials purge illegitimate names from their voter rolls. Adams swore that Fernandes told Voting Section prosecutors: "We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it."

    So far, the Voting Section is living down to Fernandes' low expectations. If not willful disregard for federal statutes, only powerful sedatives could explain how federal prosecutors could rest comfortably through these simmering examples of voter-roll adulteration:

    -- The federal Election Assistance Commission reports that Arkansas, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Tennessee expunged precisely zero dead voters from their rolls between 2006 and 2008. The same applies to numerous counties in Alabama, Rhode Island, and Virginia. Either these places are experiencing an explosion in immortality, or they are violating federal law.

    -- Several Iowa and North Carolina counties feature more registered voters than live, voting-age adults. This condition plagues at least a dozen counties each in Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Dakota, and Texas. Registered voters equal 104 percent of Baltimore County, Maryland's voting-adult population; and, according to documents that Adams filed, 113 percent in Lincoln County, West Virginia. Alaska's and Michigan's statewide figures are 102 percent.

    -- As Adams explains, July alone featured vote-fraud investigations, indictments, and convictions in: Atlantic City, New Jersey; Troy, New York; Canton, Mississippi; Brooks County, Georgia; Independence, Louisiana; Dillon County, South Carolina; Adair County, Oklahoma; Muncie, Indiana; and especially Minnesota, "where there have been dozens of felon voting indictments arising out of the closely contested 2008 elections."

    -- Duplicate registration plagues metropolitan areas that straddle state lines. In such spots, people may reside in one state and work or study in another. Greater St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis, and Cincinnati occupy this category, as do New York and Florida -- to which tax-burdened New Yorkers often escape.

    Such unacceptable electoral conditions could help candidates win, thanks to graveyard landslides. But even barring that, America should leave disheveled voter rolls to banana republics.

    While the Voting Section naps, J. Christian Adams barely has time to blink. He has warned 16 states of potential lawsuits because they are violating the National Voter Registration Act. Section 7 of this 1993 "Motor Voter" law expands suffrage by requiring states to enroll voters at motor-vehicle bureaus, welfare agencies, and other government offices. Simultaneously, Section 8 requires states to update their records so that only eligible voters -- not cadavers -- can cast ballots.

    Motor Voter allows enforcement via private lawsuits against non-compliant states and voter registrars. Adams is highly qualified for this duty, given his five years in the Voting Section. He resigned last May 14 to protest Justice's politicized mishandling of the New Black Panthers voter-intimidation case.

    Other private attorneys should join this cause. Americans for Restoration ( welcomes the support of those who prefer to cast ballots without seeing ghosts.

    Come Election Night, if the votes of live citizens are not diluted by those of Deceased-Americans, it will be no thanks to Justice's Voting Section. They are enjoying an office-wide slumber party while America's voter rolls literally are haunted.

    Friends in High Places

    The Obama Justice Department went to bat for the New Black Panther party—and then covered it up.

    From The Weekly Standard
    By Jennifer Rubin

    The case is straightforward. On Election Day 2008, two members of the New Black Panther party (NBPP) dressed in military garb were captured on videotape at a Philadelphia polling place spouting racial epithets and menacing voters. One, Minister King Samir Shabazz, wielded a nightstick. It was a textbook case of voter intimidation and clearly covered under the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

    A Department of Justice trial team was assigned to investigate. They gathered affidavits from witnesses—one of the poll watchers was called a “white devil” and a “cracker.” A Panther told him he would be “ruled by the black man.” The trial team, all career Justice attorneys and headed by voting section chief Chris Coates, filed a case against the two Panthers caught on tape. Malik Zulu Shabazz, head of the national NBPP, and the party itself were also named based on evidence the party had planned the deployment of 300 members on Election Day and on statements after the incident in which the NBPP endorsed the intimidation at the Philadelphia polling station.

    The trial team quickly obtained a default judgment—meaning it had won the case because the New Black Panther party failed to defend itself. Yet in May 2009, Obama Justice Department lawyers, appointed temporarily to fill top positions in the civil rights division, ordered the case against the NBPP dismissed. An administration that has pledged itself to stepping-up civil rights enforcement dropped the case and, for over a year, has prevented the trial team lawyers from telling their story.

    ACORN Activities 'Insidious' and 'Evil'

    Obama’s Red Shirts: Acorn in action
    From OneNewsNow
    By Chad Groening

    A public-interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption says it has obtained documents through the Freedom of Information Act that reveal despite evidence of massive voter registration fraud by the controversial group ACORN, the Obama administration shut down a federal investigation looking into the organization.

    Judicial Watch (JW) says it obtained the documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation that detail investigations into the alleged corrupt activities of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. JW spokesman Chris Farrell says the documents reference serious allegations of corruption and voter registration fraud by ACORN, including two complaints filed by Republican registrars in Connecticut during the 2008 election season.

    "All of these records that have been produced by these two registrars show fraudulent, false, invalid voter registration information that was supplied to the registrars," he explains.

    According to Farrell, ACORN's objective has little to do with getting a particular candidate elected -- and everything to do with undermining the nation's voter-registration system.

    "It's quite insidious," says the group spokesman. "It's really a very, for lack of a better term, evil attempt to destroy the American public's confidence in the voting system. They don't care what the [election] outcome is -- they want to make sure that the process is broken so there's no faith and trust in who gets elected."

    But Farrell says despite the evidence, the Obama Justice Department -- while acknowledging ACORN had engaged in "questionable hiring and training practices" -- closed down the investigation in March 2009, claiming ACORN broke no laws.

    Says JW president Tom Fitton: "Given President Obama's close connections to ACORN, including his campaign's hiring of the ACORN's Project Vote organization, it seems rather obvious why Attorney General [Eric] Holder has failed to investigate these and other alleged ACORN criminal activities."

    Undercover Videos May Be Costly for ACORN

    From OneNewsNow
    By Chad Groening and Jim Brown

    ACORN logoRepublican lawmakers on Capitol Hill are pleased the Senate has voted overwhelmingly to cut off federal funding to ACORN, in light of the ongoing investigations of voter registration fraud involving that organization.

    The vote was 83-to-7 (see roll call) to pass an amendment to block the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now from receiving federal funds for housing programs. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who has been battling for accountability from the organization, says it is already under investigation in more than a dozen states for alleged voter fraud, the result of widespread allegations during the 2008 presidential campaign. He welcomes the Senate vote and hopes the House will follow suit.

    Steve King"I sat down and wrote a personal note to Senator Mike Johanns [R-Nebraska] for offering that amendment to cut off any funding through ACORN housing that was in the bill that was before the Senate," he explains. "It will come back here to the House. And don't know if we'll get a clear up-and-down vote on it, but we'll get to vote on a bill with that language in it -- and that is a good step."

    The congressman says the recent undercover video shot at the ACORN office in Baltimore by two people posing as a pimp and prostitute demonstrates the absolute willingness of ACORN to facilitate criminal activities. The two were given advice by an ACORN representative on purchasing a house and lying on tax forms for the woman's income.

    "It looks like the culture of ACORN is such that if you walk in there with an illegal enterprise in mind, they're going to help you engage in it," says King. "Let me give credit to the young man and young lady who went into ACORN to film this. If they had not taken that initiative on their own, then none of this would have happened."

    King believes the Senate vote indicates that the tide may be turning against ACORN.

    According to The Associated Press, two other undercover videos depict similar situations in ACORN offices in Brooklyn and Washington, DC. And Fox News is reporting today that a fourth video shows a staffer at ACORN's office in San Bernardino giving advice to a couple -- the woman again posing as a prostitute -- on how to avoid detection by law enforcement. ACORN has received $53 million in taxpayer funds since 1994.

    Roger WickerACORN didn't bat an eye

    Senator Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi), who voted for the amendment, says the vote to cut off federal funding to ACORN is a win for taxpayers who do not want their hard-earned money funneled to organizations who have no respect for the rule of law. (Listen to audio)

    "We've tried this in the past, [in] both the House and Senate, and we haven't been quite so successful," he admits. "But in the past we didn't have the videotape, which just screamed out about the tax evasion that they were scheming [along] with the criminal activity including prostitution, the human trafficking.

    "Every time the person doing the investigation ratcheted up the criminality that he was supposedly proposing, the ACORN employee didn't bat an eye," the senator remarks. "They had an answer for everything."

    Wicker says as more and more Americans realize what ACORN is up to, more and more Americans are demanding that Congress not appropriate anymore money for this organization.

    'It makes no sense'

    Meanwhile, a Pennsylvania pro-family group is expressing outrage over Senator Bob Casey's vote to continue the ACORN funding.

    Senator Casey (D- Pennsylvania) was one of just seven senators who voted against the amendment that would deny housing and community grant funding to ACORN. The other six who joined Casey in voting to continue funding ACORN were Dick Durbin and Roland Burris of Illinois, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island. With the exception of Sanders, who is an Independent, all are Democrats.

    Diane GramleyDiane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, says she cannot understand why Casey backed ACORN, especially given the fact that seven ACORN workers in Pittsburgh were charged earlier this year with submitting bogus voter registrations. (Listen to audio)

    "It makes no sense," she exclaims. "It makes no sense why senators are willing to ignore the corrupt nature of this organization to vote to give them more [of] our tax dollars. It's just very concerning that he and the other senators who voted to continue the funding would just totally ignore the situation."

    Although Senator Casey has not offered an explanation for his vote, Gramley speculates he may have been worried that he would lose votes in Philadelphia if he helped cut funding to ACORN.

    Senate Votes to Cut Off ACORN Housing Funding

    From Fox News

    The Senate voted to cut off ACORN Housing funds following the release of three videotapes that show employees of the activist group advising a "pimp" and "prostitute" on how to break the law.

    The amendment, offered by Nebraska Republican Sen. Mike Johanns, passed in a vote of 83 to 7 and prohibits the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now from receiving funds from the current Transportation and Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill. It marks the third time this year Republicans tried to block the organization from federal funding.

    The latest vote comes on the heels of the release of hidden-camera videos showing workers in three separate ACORN housing offices apparently helping a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute evade the IRS and apply for an illegal housing loan for a brothel.

    ACORN Housing Corporation received $1.6 million to provide housing services to low-income communities in this fiscal year, ending Sept. 30, according to, a federal government Web site for tracking government grants.

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development Grants has given $8.2 million to ACORN in the years between 2003 and 2006, as well as $1.6 million to ACORN affiliates.

    It wasn't immediately clear whether the offices shown in the videos had received any of ACORN's federal grant money for housing services.

    Conyers suggests probe of ACORN

    Calls fraud charges 'serious'

    From The Washington Times
    By S. A. Miller

    In an startling partisan shift, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. on Thursday proposed holding hearings on claims the liberal activist group ACORN engaged in a pattern of crimes ranging from voter fraud to a mob-style “protection” racket.

    Mr. Conyers, Michigan Democrat and fierce partisan, suggested a congressional probe after scathing testimony about the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) during a hearing on various voting issues related to the 2008 presidential election.

    Ohio Will Not Allow Election To Be Stolen

    Ohio, the state where one man registered to vote 73 times, has decided they will not allow this election to be stolen. The AP reports:
    Associated Press

    CINCINNATI -- A federal appeals court has ordered Ohio's top elections official to set up a system by Friday to verify new voters' eligibility.

    The full 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has upheld an earlier ruling that Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner has to use other government records to check the thousands of new voters for registration fraud. A three-judge panel of the 6th Circuit had disagreed last week, but the full court's ruling trumps the panel's decision.

    Ohio Republicans sued Brunner, a Democrat.

    Ohio GOP Chairman Bob Bennett calls the ruling a victory for the election's integrity.
    A spokesman for Brunner could not immediately be reached for comment. Brunner previously said there was no way to set up the system with such speed.

    Buckeye Institute Files State Rico Action Against ACORN

    If the election of Barack Hussein Obama is such a certainty, why are fascist thugs among his supporters working so hard to steal an election through massive fraud? The Buckeye Institute has done a great service in bringing this state RICO action.

    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.

    A full copy of the complaint is available online at

    The Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions, together with its 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, is a nonpartisan research and educational institute devoted to individual liberty, economic freedom, personal responsibility and limited government in Ohio.

    ACORN: Community Organizers, Phony Voters and Your Tax Dollars

    From the National Center for Policy Analysis

    Acorn -- the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now -- has been around since 1970 and boasts 350,000 members. Acorn is now getting more attention as John McCain's campaign makes an issue of the fraud reports and Acorn's ties to Barack Obama. It's about time someone exposed this shady outfit that uses government dollars to lobby for larger government, says the Wall Street Journal.

    Acorn is spending $16 million this year to register new Democrats and is already boasting it has put 1.3 million new voters on the rolls. The big question is how many of these registrations are real?
    • The Michigan Secretary of State told the press in September that Acorn had submitted "a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications."

    • 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).

    • Nevada's Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said he saw rampant fraud in 2,000 to 3,000 applications Acorn submitted weekly.

    • Officials in Ohio are investigating voter fraud connected with Acorn, and Florida's Seminole County 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 percent of Acorn's registrations were faulty. o As of July, the city of Houston had rejected or put on hold about 40 percent of the 27,000 registration cards submitted by Acorn.

    • o As of July, the city of Houston had rejected or put on hold about 40 percent of the 27,000 registration cards submitted by Acorn.

    The Justice Department needs to treat these fraud reports as something larger than a few local violators. The question is whether Acorn is systematically subverting U.S. election law -- on the taxpayer's dime, says the Journal.

    Felons Voting In Ohio

    Mayor Richard M. Daley with protege Barack Hussein Obama

    Here's a change you can believe in, the corrupt machine politics of Chicago is going national.
    From the New York Post

    CLEVELAND - Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked.

    The huge effort by a pro-Obama group, Vote Today Ohio, takes advantage of a quirk in the state's elections laws that allows people to register and cast ballots at the same time without having to prove residency.

    Republicans have argued that the window could lead to widespread voter fraud because officials wouldn't have an opportunity to verify registration information before ballots were cast.

    Among the volunteers were Yori Stadlin and Vivian Lehrer of the Upper West Side, who got married last week and decided to spend their honeymoon shepherding voters to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

    Early today, Stadlin's van picked up William Woods, 59, at the soup kitchen of the Bishop Cosgrove Center.

    "I never voted before," Woods said, because of a felony conviction that previously barred him from the polls. "Without this service, I would have had no way to get here."
