Connecting dots "So, less than a week before the midterm elections, four workers from Acorn, the liberal activist group that has registered millions of voters, have been indicted by a federal grand jury for submitting false voter-registration forms to the Kansas City, Missouri, election board. But hey, who needs voter-ID laws?" the Wall Street Journal said in an editorial.

Connecting dots "So, less than a week before the midterm elections, four workers from Acorn, the liberal activist group that has registered millions of voters, have been indicted by a federal grand jury for submitting false voter-registration forms to the Kansas City, Missouri, election board. But hey, who needs voter-ID laws?" the Wall Street Journal said in an editorial. "We wish this were an aberration, but allegations of fraud have tainted Acorn voter drives across the country. Acorn workers have been convicted in Wisconsin and Colorado, and investigations are still under way in Ohio, Tennessee and Pennsylvania," the newspaper said. Acorn is the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. "The good news for anyone who cares about voter integrity is that the Justice Department finally seems poised to connect these dots, instead of dismissing such revelations as the work of a few yahoos. After the federal indictments were handed up in Kansas City this week, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a statement that 'This national investigation is very much ongoing,' " the editorial continued. "Let's hope so. Acorn officials bill themselves as nonpartisan community organizers merely interested in giving a voice to minorities and the poor. In reality, Acorn is a union-backed, multimillion-dollar outfit that uses intimidation and other tactics to push for higher minimum-wage mandates and to trash Wal-Mart and other non-union companies."

Only republicans are "permitted" (by the MSM) to engage in vote fraud.

I wonder how much these clowns get in federal funds for voter education. It looks like Sen. Grassley is asking the Acorn for some information. I'm sure they will reply promptly--Ha,Ha,Ha.

Grassley continues checks on abuse of tax-exempt status, asks ACORN about voter fraud
WASHINGTON — Sen. Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Committee on Finance, is asking for information to help determine whether the activities of a tax-exempt organization violate the tax laws that provide favorable treatment for charitable activities.
In a letter sent today to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – known as ACORN – Grassley reiterated his concern that “misuse of tax-exempt organizations for political and lobbying activities is a widespread problem.” In this case, Grassley said, “Engaging
in voter fraud is not a charitable activity. The Internal Revenue Service and the responsible state offices should be looking closely at ACORN’s activities to determine whether those activities conform with the laws governing charities.”
