BREAKING: Word in Chicago: Patrick Fitzgerald heading RICO investigation of ACORN and BHO campaign
hillbuzz via Hillary Clinton Forum ^ | 10-9-08 | unknown

Posted on 10/08/2008 11:40:53 PM PDT by Anti-Hillary

Tonight we talked to someone who works in the federal courts here in Chicago.

The buzz in those corridors is that federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has been leading a team of FBI investigators in 10 states working on a RICO case.

Today, it was announced that ACORN is being investigated in 10 states.

That’s one Hell of a coincidence.

We asked why Fitzgerald would be involved in this, because he’s the prosecutor on the Tony Rezko case and we aren’t aware of ACORN being investigated in Illinois.

We were told that ACORN was investigated in Illinois years ago, and it was a Fitzgerald case then. This means ACORN’s activities today, involving a conspiracy to commit multi-state voter fraud on SoetorObama’s behalf, are an extension of that previous ACORN case.

Our source in federal courts said, “Any crime that involves more than two people and is carried out across state lines qualifies as a corrupt organization. The fact that those “Goodwill” donations were made in Texas and received at Obama headquarters in Chicago or Washington means it qualifies for RICO.”

The “Goodwill donations” referred to above are the $228 million in undocumented, unverified campaign contributions the SoetorObama camp has received — which the McCain campaigned filed a complaint to the FEC on this past Monday.

We’ve also heard that the Clinton campaign filed complaints to the FBI and other federal agencies over SoetorObama’s fraud in the Iowa, Texas and other caucuses: voter intimidation, registration fraud, and other illegal activities.

The last thing we were told tonight in regards to all of this was that “the meme here is a tying together of all these various threads. That’s what you will see in the last weeks of the campaign: all things being tied together”.

If everything rumored here is true, it looks like David Axelrod, Howard Dean, Donna Brazile, SoetorObama himself, and possibly even Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were all involved, together, in massive RICO violations, and thus federal fraud, if the DNC and party leadership knew what the SoetorObama campaign and ACORN were up to and allowed it to proceed. Knowledge of federal crimes being committed makes all parties accessories to those crimes — and part of the conspiracy to defraud the public.

THAT would certainly be one Hell of a shock tomorrow morning.

I don’t want to jinx it, but would this be the “October surprise”?

And that announcement McCain is supposed to have tomorrow?

ACORN should’ve been busted with RICO 15+ years ago, but I suppose now is worlds better than 6 months from now.

Politico says that the McCain campaign is going to “have something to talk about” tomorrow. This topic, if it pans out, certainly qualifies.

From Wikipedia

“On July 18, 2005, Fitzgerald’s office indicted a number of top aides to Democrat Richard M. Daley, the mayor of Chicago, on charges of mail fraud, alleging numerous instances of corruption in hiring practices at City Hall. Fitzgerald is also investigating the administration of current Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. An investigation announced on December 30, 2005 will review contracts between the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority and vendors who signed leases to occupy the recently remodeled Illinois Tollway oases. Fitzgerald’s office is investigating possible conflicts of interest between these vendors and one of Blagojevich’s top fundraisers, Antoin Rezko.”

I would hate to see them overplay their hand. When Republicans do this, they somewhat inoculate the Democrat, because things never turn out to be as bad as the initial charge.

Play it cool and let Fitzgerald do his thing. And keep the pressure on him, until he does.

It is the law that normally prosecutes organized crime figures under. About impossible to beat. If true, heads will roll and collected in a basket.

“Tonight we talked to someone who works in the federal courts here in Chicago.”
“Sounds credible.”

If this were a REPUBLICAN, that would be enough confirmation to Interupt the Prime-Time schedule with “Breaking” News Coverage.

However, this being a DEMOCRAT thing, I fully expect it eill be IGNORED by the MSM until well after the election.

Maybe. I could give a crap what it it. Just as long as something sticks to this walking piece of excrement. I swear, I have NEVER seen a guy with more frightening things in his background, getting a pass. Good night, I would be happy for the days of Clinton compared to this guy, and that is saying a LOT!!!! My prayer every day has been a simple one. Lord, expose Barack Obama. The guy is a closet MUSLIM. Everybody I know agrees with me. Getting him on this is like getting Capone on tax evation compared to all the other stuff he has been up to.

The problem with waiting is, there is a real urgency here. If Obama becomes president, he can shut down all dissent, legal and otherwise, as he’ll have the dem congress, bureaucracies, etc. Considering all that we’ve seen so far, and it’s probably just the tip of the iceberg, but: With Obama’s agenda; his associations; the Pelosi-Reid-etc. cabal; the blatant attempt by the dems to include ACORN in the bailout package; the intimidation tactics; the ability he’ll have to pack the courts...if Obama wins, we may never again have anything resembling a legitimate election, only fixed charades.
