Al Franken Democrat From Acorn
IBD Editorials ^ | July 2, 2009

Politics: The former Stuart Smalley becomes the 60th Democrat in the U.S. Senate, thanks to the community organizers at Acorn and the little-known Secretary of State Project. Is the system being rigged?


Politics: The former Stuart Smalley becomes the 60th Democrat in the U.S. Senate, thanks to the community organizers at Acorn and the little-known Secretary of State Project. Is the system being rigged?

Incumbent Republican Norm Coleman conceded defeat in the mother of all recounts in Minnesota's U.S. Senate race after the state's Supreme Court unanimously rejected his lawsuit.

Arguably, his seat may have been lost the day in 2006 when Democrat Mark Ritchie defeated two-term incumbent Republican Mary Kiffmeyer to become Minnesota secretary of state.

It was Ritchie who orchestrated the recount that gave Democratic challenger Franken a lead some six weeks after Coleman appeared to win by 725 votes on Election Day. Ritchie has extensive ties to the Acorn organization now under federal investigation for vote fraud and was endorsed by the community activist group in 2006.

In 2006, the Minnesota Acorn Political Committee endorsed Ritchie and contributed to his campaign. Other contributors to his campaign included George Soros, along with the likes of Deborah Rappaport, a Saul Alinsky disciple who co-founded the Midwest Academy, a radical Acorn clone.

"Mark Ritchie as we all know is a hard-core liberal who was endorsed by Acorn and funded by Acorn," Matthew Vadum, senior editor of CapitolResearch.org, a nonprofit think tank, recently told NewsMax. "It is not surprising that he has a permissive attitude toward the recount process."

> the Acorn organization now under federal investigation

I thought I read somewhere that the feds dropped the investigation into Acorn’s activities.

Here’s hoping that some future Congress will reopen the investigation and put these thugs behind bars.

Even better, they should have their citizenship revoked and be deported to anywhere in Africa, preferably Somalia or Zimbabwe.

I was hoping to see some of the specific actions taken by Mark Ritchie that allowed the Dems to yet again steal another election.

Not surprising, but it is sickening. We all knew it would happen. Wait until the ACORN census. Not enough duct tape in the world to keep it together until this mob of Chicago thugs is out of our White House. Grr.

Good movie to see, to forget for 2 hours the horror of what is happening to our beloved country...”Public Enemies”. Saw it last night and really liked it.

Mark my words folks — because I've seen all this before..
Before it's over - there will be a shooting war in the U.S. to get the thieving cheating Marxist bastards out of office.

Once the ballot box has been corrupted, and the corrupt rule - the cartridge box is the only alternative to regain Liberty.

Are the elections of 2012 even going to matter? Or have they already been decided?
