NUTS!; HOW ACORN GOT ME INTO VOTE SCAM (fake names registered 72 times)
NY POST ^ | 10/9/08 | JEANE MacINTOSH, Post Correspondent

Posted on 10/09/2008 4:54:11 AM PDT by Liz

Ohio voters claimed they were hounded by ACORN though they made it clear they'd already registered....one estimated he'd registered "10-15" times after ACORN canvassers, whose political wing endorsed Barack Obama, relentlessly pursued him and others. "I kept getting approached to register," a pizza deliveryman said. "They'd ask me if I was registered. I'd say yes, and they'd ask me to do it again. Cuyahoga County Board of Elections has issued subpoenas in possible voter fraud by ACORN. "You can tell them you're registered as many times as you want," said Lateala Goins, 21. "They follow you to the buses, they follow you home....." She added that she never put down an address, just her name. A third subpoenaed voter, Freddie Johnson, 19, filled out registration cards 72 times over 18 months....... Registering under a fake name is illegal. The major risk growing out of mass canvassing involves the possibility of ineligible voters voting absentee, thus avoiding checks at polling places, said RNC chief counsel. Nevada raided ACORN's Las Vegas office Tuesday, accusing them of signing people up multiple times - in some cases under phony names, like those of Dallas Cowboys.

DOES BARACK OBAMA KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS?

FReeper Calpernia turned us on to ID theft used in campaign donation schemes (candidates using stolen names as campaign contributors to get around FEC laws). The ACORN apparat would appear to be a fertile area for implementing such schemes.

MICHELE MALKIN EXCERPT House Republicans removed one pro-ACORN measure from the $700 Billion rescue bill - torpedoeing a provision devoting 20 percent of all profits from the bailout to a housing slush fund - which would've funneled money to ACORN and similar groups. In its place, however, ACORN's favorite lawmakers - led by Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Barney Frank (D-Mass.) - got ACORN-championed "foreclosure-mitigation" provisions into the rescue bill .....During the floor debate on Friday, Reps. Frank and Waters assured Democratic colleagues that they had personally lobbied Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson on these measures and would press him to consent to "do the kind of loan modifications we've been urging." Waters exulted: "We're in charge! . . . We own them now." If the banks don't write down enough loan principal to keep Rep. Frank happy, he threatens hearings and new legislation......with the backing of ACORN. ......... ACORN President Maude Hurd warns that her "members plan to hold Secretary Paulson accountable and ensure he uses this authority to make streamlined loan modifications a priority for struggling American families."

=========================================

MODUS OPERANDI Authorities need to determine whether ACORN colluded in multiple schemes, whether ACORN used ID theft in donation schemes for favored candidates. ACORN had at its disposal numerous names that could have been employed in various ID theft operations to fuether its political goals.

Moreove, ACORN may have solicited donors who are officers of publicly-held companies to manipulate publicly-reported earnings through a variety of devices designed to produce materially false and misleading financial results.

Authorities need to determine whether ACORN colluded with its donors---particularly donors who are officers of publicly-held companies-----in schemes that may have included (1) misusing corporate reserve accounts, (2) concealing losses, (3) inflating asset values, (4) improperly accounting for transactions, (5) deferring profits into reserve accounts, (6) improperly shifting capital funding to other projects to hide illegal payments to ACORN. ACORN donors may have fraudulently booked contributions as business expenses.

ACORN may have employed money-laundering schemes to evade the IRS, SEC, FEC and US banking laws. Classic money-laundering schemes work like this: ACORN might solicit a donor to write a check for say $150,000. ACORN would then deposit a percentage for itself, then illegally convert the remainder to another account----perhaps to a putative “consultant, administrative, or legal” account.

In the transaction, the donor’s money would be fraudulently converted, then redeposited offshore (in a friendly foreign bank), where the donor would have access to the funds out of sight of IRS, SEC, and US banking laws.

In another conversion scheme, ACORN might solicit donors to write checks for $50,000, then deposit the check into a subsidiary bank account labeled “legal or administration fees.” The bank would then illegally convert the monies and redeposit them into a campaign account (designated by ACORN) out of sight of the FEC.

Authorities need to determine whether ACORN and its corporate donors violated state and federal RICO statutes by participating in (1) securities fraud, (2) mail fraud (3) electronic fraud, (6) theft (8) co-opting donors into criminal acts, (9) failing to report wrongdoing (10) breach of fiduciary duty (11) receiving insider information, (12) accounting fraud, (13) creating slush funds, (14) manipulating inventories, and, (15) improperly valuing assets.

If you have any information RE: government fraud, kickbacks, extortion, filing false documents, obstructing justice, IRS fraud, bank fraud, failing to notify authorities of wrongdoing, colluding to deceive the FEC, engaging in a conspiracy to misuse tax-exempt revenue; violating state and federal RICO statutes; official fraud; extorting tax-exempt revenue in the commission of crimes; colluding to obstruct justice; forcing Taxpayers to report wrongdoing; breach of fiduciary duty for withholding criminal information from Taxpayers; accounting fraud to hide tax-exempt revenue used in government fraud...............contact https://tips.fbi.gov/

Acorn’s mission is not only to register fake voters, but also to so clog up the system with fake voters that election officials will be unable to process and double check everything.

That way, many fake registrations could slip through.

If the Bush Administration does not indict this group FEDERALLY, ... then this bogus registration will continue for years and decades to come.

In fact, the RNC should immediately file motions in federal court to IMMEDIATELY have all Acorn generated registrations thrown out ... until after the election.

Or, you could say, “Fortunately, we still have enough free speech to get the word out. Use it or lose it, baby!”

There's no doubt BO Hussein would lie under oath. His cronies and wife will be just bad. The hope here is in prayer.

YES, of course Obama knew and knows about voter fraud....that’s how he moved up the ladder!! Here is his direct quote:

“I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.” — Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007

ACORN's Cleveland spokesman, Kris Harsh, said his group collected 100,000 voter-registration cards; only about 50 were questionable, he claimed.

As for workers, "We watch them like a hawk," he said.

How about a RICO Lawsuit?

How about a lawsuit similar to how they shut down the Westbury Baptist church?

Seize the assets of ACORN and REVOKE their status as an organization...

This was all part of the plan. The ACORN creeps were out in force here in Philadelphia as well, registering everybody and anybody. They approached me multiple times but I waved them off saying I was already registered as a Republican. They lost interest real fast after that.

It would take federal action to close them down. That means Bush has to step in-—oh, never mind.

Means ACORN gave orders to "profile" voters.

Shoulda got their names and worker ID's and reported them to the FBI, and the Secy of State.

File a complaint with the FEC and the DOJ----EMAIL askDOJ@USDOJ.gov
