CLEVELAND - A man at the center of a voter-registration scandal told The Post yesterday he was given cash and cigarettes by aggressive ACORN activists in exchange for registering an astonishing 72 times, in apparent violation of Ohio laws.
"Sometimes, they come up and bribe me with a cigarette, or they'll give me a dollar to sign up," said Freddie Johnson, 19, who filled out 72 separate voter-registration cards over an 18-month period at the behest of the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
"The ACORN people are everywhere, looking to sign people up. I tell them I am already registered. The girl said, 'You are?' I say, 'Yup,' and then they say, 'Can you just sign up again?' " he said.
Johnson used the same information on all of his registration cards, and officials say they usually catch and toss out duplicate registrations. But the practice sparks fear that some multiple registrants could provide different information and vote more than once by absentee ballot.
ACORN is under investigation in Ohio and at least eight other states - including Missouri, where the FBI said it's planning to look into potential voter fraud - for over-the-top efforts to get as many names as possible on the voter rolls regardless of whether a person is registered or eligible

SOMEBODY has to step on and call this what it is. An attempt by DEMOCRATS to steal an election.
I wonder if President/Emperor Obama Da First will be sending the IRS after this guy for taxes due from getting paid in menthols?
Are they sure?
Interesting. The Left is probably more angry at the prospect of ACORN supporting the Evil Tobacco Industry, rather than the overt voter fraud.
Gosh, how can be be an attempt by Democrats to steal an election? Wouldn’t the Republican Justice Department be prosecuting ACORN all over the country? </sarc>
Can you imagine how the shiite would hit the fan if McCain people were doing this?
How can Obama be declared the winner since we know this is going on?
If he wins..lawsuits galore.
“... registering an astonishing 72 times, in apparent violation of Ohio laws.”
What idiot wrote that?
Obama is wholly corrupt and intends to steal the election if he cannot win it.
He has been directly tied and involved with ACORN, for a long time, and through his instrumentality we are seeing our free market and our voting process subverted and deconstructed before our very eyes.
but there is hope, despite what the push polls are saying.
The good news is that I doubt he could actually vote more than a half dozen times before getting caught. :)
Wouldn’t it be a shame (not to mention racist) if someone photoshopped Obama’s face onto Idi’s body. Gosh, I hope no one does that.
Edwards is right there is 2 Americas....the one that Loves freedom and the other that Cheats to win
Obama is on the side of the Cheaters, the crooks, the Commies, the terrorists, the Appeasers.
bump for later
Within the past 14 months government has created over 250,000 new jobs; working for the government!
But as the senior senator from Vermont remarked a few years ago while interrogating a prospective judge who had expressed disdain with the federal government years before, "You appear to dislike your government. I love my government."
Does Ohio have ANY laws?
They're attempting to steal it through Acorn, but he could probably win it anyway thanks to the limousine liberals and America's clueless illiterates.
Idi Amin - finger lickin’ good fascism.
