Re: Referral of Report Describing Potential Federal Criminal Activity During the 2004 Presidential General ElectionDear Mr. Acosta:
I am writing as general counsel for The American Center for Voting Rights (ACVR), a not-for-profit entity, which has conducted an investigation into allegations of vote fraud and election irregularities that occurred in Ohio during the 2004 presidential general election campaign. The ACVR, working with almost one dozen Ohio attorneys involved in the November election, reviewed the facts surrounding the November general election and found substantial evidence to suggest potential criminal wrongdoing by organizations such as Americans Coming Together ("ACT"), ACORN, and the NAACP Project Vote.
We understand that local Ohio law enforcement authorities are pursuing criminal prosecution against some of the individuals involved in this activity, which activities included paying crack cocaine for fraudulent voter registration forms. However, we believe that the role of the organizations (not just the individuals who carried out the scheme) merits investigation. Please find attached the report containing the ACVR's preliminary findings of voter registration fraud, voter intimidation, and other misconduct for your review.
As you will see in the report, third party organizations, especially ACT, ACORN and the NAACP Project Vote, were engaged in a coordinated Get Out the Vote effort. A significant component of this effort appears to be registering individuals who would cast ballots for the candidate supported by these organizations. This voter registration effort was not limited to the registration of legal voters but, criminal investigations and news reports suggest, that the voter registration effort also involved the registration of thousands of fictional voters such as the now infamous Jive F. Turkey, Sr., Dick Tracy and Mary Poppins. Those individuals registering these fictional voters were reportedly paid not just money to do so but were, in at least one instance, paid in crack cocaine.
Clearly, the conduct outlined in the preliminary report suggests a serious violation of federal law in pursuit of a scheme to illegally influence the outcome of a national election for President. I am confident that you will find the ACVR's report both informative and helpful. Please let me know if I can be of assistance or provide additional information regarding the ACVR's findings.
As the U.S. Supreme Court has noted, It must be remembered that the right of suffrage can be denied by debasement or dilution of the weight of a citizens vote just as effectively as by wholly prohibiting the free exercise of the franchise. Bush v. Gore, 121 S.Ct. 525, 530 (2000), citing, Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 (1964). No Ohio citizens should be disenfranchised by an illegally cast ballot and, we believe, an apparently coordinated effort to do so merits your investigation.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

Vote fraud is the life blood of the democratic party.
Isn't Sandy Berger running this investigation?
Maybe Paul Volker will conduct another of his in-depth, take-no-prisoners investigations.....;^)
OK.I didn't see Larry Klayman's name involved. Maybe something will come of this.
Too bad they don't care about it in Michigan.
No mention yet in my review of CBS/ABC/AP/NBC newsfeeds
Must have missed it
Ping! This should be HUGH!! But we all know the MSM wont be to series about it!
The dems will claim that this was just a clerical error, and that the voter was actually Jive F. Turkey, Jr.
And if they turned the WIsconsin count to Bush, wouldn't that be a riot? We do need election reform. The stupid dims think that they can cry foul about the election (in areas that they had control of the election sites) and gain voter confidence because they think most people don't know that it was the dems who were corrupt. They think that everyone believes that whoever cries "foul" first is the innocent party!
Same thought came to my mind when I saw the headline...investigating vote fraud is all well and good,but does the DOJ remember Sandy Burgers' name?
Do you suppose anything will ever come of that little err, transgression of Sandy's?
Re your #15 -
"Do you suppose anything will ever come of that little err, transgression of Sandy's?"
Not very bloody likely!
One of the major differences between Dems and Pubbies is that commiocrats can commit massive voter fraud, lie, enjoy all sorts of sexual frolics, and outright TREASON with, in the vast majority of cases, total impunity.
Let a Pubbie, especially a "Conservative" one slip out of line just about once, however, and such a great hubbub is raised from sea to shining sea that his or her political career is essentially toast.
A primary example would be former House Leader Nute Gingrich.
About the only commiocrat ever held accountable for anything are those who get out of line, and needs be destroyed or marginalized as an example, perhaps, to the rest of the flock. The names "Trafficant" and "Torricelli" come to mind. When are they supposed to get out of the slammer, by the way?
I heard "Sore Loserman" on the radio a couple of days ago, and he was making a whole lot more sense than a leftist is, I opine, supposed to.
Had the Ds run "Moderate" Joe L. in the last election rather than hardcore leftist Hanoi John, I predicted that "W" would have been toast. And so far, I'm standing by that call.
If the GOP is stupid enough to run another milqutoast RINO in '08 (and they probably will) and the DNC is smart enough to run a Lieberman instead of Hittlery, (thankfully unlikely) we could well lose the White House.
