Did Obama's ACORN Steal Dem Nomination from Hillary?
Newsvine ^ | October 20, 2008 | Newsvine Tom Bombadil

Posted on 10/20/2008 5:27:05 PM PDT by Newsvine Tom Bombadil

As new scandals erupt daily concerning the sleazy attempts of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) to steal the upcoming Presidential election, it is worth looking to the not-so-distant past and investigate the role that ACORN played in the defeat of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton during the Democratic Party Caucuses and Primaries. Given ACORN's strong and undeniable ties to both Senator Barack Obama and his campaign, and their proven track record of aggressive deception, duplicity, fraud, and corruption, it is instructive to see if their present attempts at vote fraud reflect earlier efforts in the Democratic Caucuses and Primaries.

This basic, explicit question that must be asked by all concerned Democrats, Republicans, and Independants is this: Did ACORN register inelgible voters, collect invalid names, engage in voter intimidation, or seek to cast unlawful votes in the Democratic Party nomination process, and if so, was that a factor in Obama's narrow win?

Not only should supporters of Senator Clinton be outraged by this plausible likelihood, but every voter in America who cherishes our sacred rights and the integrity of our election system should be angered ... and demanding some immediate answers.

There is ample evidence of ACORN's unholy marriage of partisan "ends justifies the means" ethos combined with their shoddy recruiting, hiring, training, and accountability practices. This, combined with election officials and courts in certain districts who are hell-bent on rushing through every registration - without credibly checking voter identification - is a recipe for disaster. Indeed, it is a recipe for voter fraud on an unprecedented scale.

The Far Left often accuses Conservatives of "voter supression." The fact is, Conservatives are delighted when legitimate voters exercise their Constitutional right to vote; but Conservatives must unapologetically stand with fair-minded Democrats and Independants in calling for a supression of lawlessness and fraud on Election Day. This is not a peripheral or tangential issue; it goes straight to the heart of Obama's personal integrity, his deeply troublesome alliances with radical individuals and groups, and his true vision for America.

Part of this process is in demanding an immediate investigation into the role that ACORN played in the Democratic Primaries. In invite every concerned citizen to join with me in broadcasting this demand to their friends, to every elected official, law enforcement agency, and responsible media outlet.

Probably not. I mean, Mickey Mouse might have registered, but I seriously doubt someone voted as Mickey Mouse. Voter registration fraud is different than voter fraud.

Either way, the Acorn situation sucks, and I'm glad it was exposed in the national media.

Have you seen the series of youtube videos where people talk about how the obama supporters locked them out of caucuses and ballot sheets were missing? Pretty revealing

If so, why have Bill & Hillary been so paasive, even reluctantly campaigning for the guy?

If they are planning on Nuking Obamah, they are cutting it close.

Yes. See the 4 part YouTube documentary, "We Will Not Be Silenced". Also see Lynette Long's current blog post. She's done the math on it.

Voter registration fraud is different than voter fraud.


Not if the fake voters are on the roles in precincts where nobody watches the counting.

I understand the danger in over registering voters is when crooked poll workers vote for those who didn’t show by the end of the day.

Honestly, I’m more worried about our nation’s decision to pretty much move exclusively to electronic voting when a 12 year old can hack those machines.

Why do you doubt that? If election officials receive an absentee ballot from a properly-registered "Mickey D. Mouse", what basis would they have for rejecting it? It's highly improbable that any real voter would have that name, but how it any worse of a name than "Moon Unit Zappa"?

In the dim, dark days when I was a registered Democrat I attended one Democrat Caucus and never have I seen such a disorganized, confused and finally uncommitted mess. I have no idea of who was in charge nor what was reported to the party headquarters. The end result was Jimmy Carter. The next time I tried to attend with my (also registered Democrat)neighbor we could never find the address, this after calling and getting directions at least five times. It became apparent they didn't want anyone they didn't “know” to show up. Caucuses are an open invitation to corruption and thievery.

Welcome to FR. I’ve read some of your stuff.

In answer to the rhetorical question....YES.

Because a lot of the fraud occurred right here in Indiana, and we have photo ID laws. I doubt Mickey has a license that says Mickey. Other states my differ.

Those who committed the fraud should be held to the laws they violated, tough.

The only way someone COULD vote as Mickey Mouse or anyone else for that matter would be if there was no republican poll watcher and corrupt Dems just “let it go” if you know what I mean....don’t think that doesn’t happen either.

I absolutely believe ACORN had something to do with it and help from others in Obama camp too. I’ve seen snips from the documentary that is coming out. There is no doubt in my mind.

I totally agree, I watched the video too, the people were totally credible and explained things so they made sense.

The series of videos on YouTube mentioned above: “We Will Not Be Silenced” is very telling. The caucus form of primary seems to have been crucial in the Obama’s ability to steal delegates from Hillary. Intimidation, shady practices, and organized disorganization (conspiracy) seemed to play a big part in this. After you have heard about Alinsky’s techniques and the idea of getting in peoples’ faces, you can see Obama’s ACORN at work. No wonder Bill Clinton was upset.
