ACORN Workers Indicted For Alleged Voter Fraud
KMBC-TV Kansas City ^ | 11/1/2006 | staff

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Four people have been indicted on charges of voter fraud in Kansas City, officials said Wednesday.

Investigators said questionable registration forms for new voters were collected by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a group that works to improve minority and low-income communities.

The four indicted -- Kwaim A. Stenson, Dale D. Franklin, Stephanie L. Davis and Brian Gardner -- were employed by ACORN as registration recruiters. They were each charged with two counts.

Federal indictments allege the four turned in false voter registration applications. Prosecutors said the indictments are part of a national investigation.

ACORN and Project Vote recruit and assign workers to low-income and minority neighborhoods to register people to vote.

"The Kansas City Election Board told KMBC they found suspicious forms, such as seven applications from one person and an application for a dead man."

Typical!

I gloosed over the article and of course NO party name is mentioned so I stand on that cyber dollar - Demoncrats at work.

Busily exlpoiting the ignorant and poor to get some power.

"ACORN and Project Vote recruit and assign workers to low-income and minority neighborhoods to register people to vote."

For a bottle of cheap liquor or meth to stop their drug habit ... or just plain needing money - Deomcrats will capitalize on that and even chauffeur them to a voting station. Demoncrats don't care. They are the united party of the immoral.

Ah but we both know that they'll claim - "we're not like THAT". Don't broad brush us and besides your INNOCENT before proven GUILTY. Never mind the evidence. It's just a misunderstanding that DEAD people, the POOR and MINORITES all by chance REGISTER as fellow DEMONCRATS.

ACORN has been falsifying voter registrations in other states for the past few election cycles. It's been in the news before, but you'd never know that from ABC's coverage of this latest incident.

Of course not!

They don't want to taint the Demoncrat party name. They'll continue to endorse the Demoncrats and as usual try their best to demoralize Republicans from coming out to vote.

When I lived in Independence, right next to KC, 2 years ago I was approached by 2 ACORN members for registration. They gave me this long statement about what they do and I told them I'll save them anymore air and told them I was already a registered Republican. One of the guys started yelling about how Bush hates blacks, bla, bla, bla and I just went back in brushing them off but I looked out my front window and saw the guy that was yelling kicking the bumper of my car. I ran outside to catch the him but the guys jumped in a white van and sped off while flipping me the bird. I called the police and told them who they were but the police said there was no damage to my car so they weren't going to do anything.

Are they sure these investigations are not being handled by the Texas Rangers(Texas Dept.of Public Safety)?

"They don't want to taint the Demoncrat party name."

Not only that, by suppressing key facts in these stories about ACORN, they are passive co-conspirators.

Anyone who googles acorn voters "were caught" will see in short order that ACORN is nothing but a vote fraud factory for the democrats.

It would be interesting to get ACORN's statistics of how many new Republicans they have registered. It would be about equal, right?

I've heard ACORN members have actually hired on to different campaigns doing phone polls and endorsements.

Your encounter with the left reminds me of one with the NYT. They call and solicit for subscriptions. I told them their newspaper was UNFIT for puppy liter and that I'm not a LEFTIST. With that they called me an obscenity and hung up. It's typical of the left - all EMOTION and DISINFORMATION to get you to hate the right.

All the more reason for FReepers to carry around either digital still cameras or video cameras in their cars, etc. so as to get the perps' faces and license plates recorded to turn over to the cops.

They'll vote 5-6 times in Missouri if they get them through the process of approval. Dead people count in Missouri. ACORN members get smokes and booze for the numbers that they register, fake or not.

Here in Houston, they were giving free flu shots near the polls, for voting early. That was the bright idea of our Dem mayor.

After one day, and the obvious result that only Dems were taking advantage of the offer, and it was only being done in 5 low-income areas, the plan has now been abandoned. This *is* Texas, after all.

ACORN has been at it since Algore lost. IF we only knew how many dead people and pets have been voting since then, we'd lynch some RATS. Still, you haven't seen voter fraud until you see what's going to happen in NM on Tuesday. We've got 30K illegals that Governor Bill Richardson allowed to have driver's licenses. With those, they were allowed to register to vote and even though the Republican Party has filed suit, they haven't been forced to turn those records over yet. IOW, they KNOW it's fraud so they don't want us to know until it's too late. By the time the election is over that moron Patricia Madrid will become the most corrupt Congresswoman in the nation. As our attorney general she's been caught taking kickbacks.
