Massive Vote Fraud in New York Linked to ACORN
Big Government ^ | 9/29/09 | Mike Roman

Posted on 09/29/2009 9:35:00 PM PDT by pissant

The Working Families Party and local Democratic Party Officials are at the center of a massive voter fraud scandal in Troy, NY.

According to the Times Union:

Dozens of forged and fraudulent absentee ballots from people registered to vote on the Working Families Party line were filed in the Sept. 15 primary elections in Troy.

Documents at the county Board of Elections show the fraudulent ballots were handled by or prepared on behalf of various elected officials and leaders and operatives for the Democratic and Working Families parties.

There may be as many as 50 absentee ballots that were forged, according to people close to the case. Countywide, there were 126 absentee ballots applied for on the Working Families Party line.

What isn’t mentioned is that WFP is nothing more than a front group for ACORN. Or as Roger Stone put it:

The Working Families Party is not about working people or families and it isn’t really a party. The WFP is a wholly owned subsidiary of ACORN. Bertha Lewis co-chair of the Working Families Party is the Executive Director of New York ACORN. New York ACORN leader, Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party and WFP headquarters are located at the same address as ACORN’s national and New York office at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

WFP is essentially a money funnel which pays for an aggressive door to door canvas. Largely funded by unions, the WFP is ACORN’s “political arm” in New York State. Candidates supported by the Working Families Party and issues supported by ACORN are both advocated on the door steps of target voter homes as they share one major voter canvas.

Adding more evidence to the ACORN-WFP link is Erick Erickson’s examination of Bertha

ACORN hasn’t been around that long. Who was doing it before they came along?

OK, let’s start a countdown and see how long it takes for the New York Times to report this one.

Rumor has it that there is irrefutable evidence/proof that ACORN threw the Minnesota election for Al Franken.

A bunch of separate political "machines" did it in many cities. ACORN simply *organized* them.

It would be kind of difficult to prove on a level that would invalidate the election.

Not surprising, considering that Franken won by less than 400 votes in a state in which ACORN was heavily active...can you tell us more?

As if we didn’t already know it. Bozo beat Hillary out because of voter fraud in the primaries and not just in one town. If we could prove it I would think voter fraud won the general election for him also. Maybe not totally but I bet his win would have been much closer had it not been for ACORN(and McCain giving the election away).

“He’d have to think real hard before throwing them under the bus too.”

WHY????
He doesn’t need them, anymore. He can affords to jettison the liability, and they still have La Raza, and the SEIU under his Defacto control. They can always create a bunch of new Community Organizing Orgs, with the same corrupt local people, under the MoveOn.Borg umbrella for 2012.

He’s BEEN elected, he’s getting filthy rich, he’s living high on the hog, and he now controls the entire apparatus of the Democrat Party.

Why are the leaders of ACORN not being prosecuted for RICO violations. ACORN is a nationwide criminal enterprise.

Robert Mueller I thought, who is a Bush appointee, unless he has been replaced.

But regardless of who runs or oversees or does anything with the FBI, the appearance of impropriety here IS SO OFF THE CHARTS HIGH that they looking like accomplices to organized crime for not investigating in my opinion.

Who is going to be capable of dealing with or defeating the astounding, indescribable corruption that IS the federal government of the united states and its brown shirts known as ACORN?

There’s a reason for that. :) I’ll wait till it gets plopped into the public domain before it’s “irrefutability” can be verified...Perhaps part of it will be video interviews.

It’s pretty damn hard to refute their people, in their own words.

Townhallers/Tea Partiers, what if we put together a concentrated effort to challenge voter registrations in every county office in the country? Just go there quietly and ask how you can get access to the public records and start challenging the duplicate signatures, etc.

CPUSA. Soviet archives show a $2 million payment to it in 1986 to defeat "Reagnites"in that year's midterm. Like ACORN, the CPUSA worked with organized crime and excelled at get out the vote drives.

Just wondering how far this investigation will go, JJ. NY's hostile territory when it comes to prosecuting voter fraud cases.

Former AG and Governor Spitzer and his successor, Patterson were blind to it. In Patterson's case, clinically blind.

If no media outlet reports illegal activity and no law enforcement agency investigates said illegal activity, was a crime even committed?

I believe, sadly, that you are right: the Federal government is itself a criminal enterprise at this point in out history. The coup has almost been accomplished, and the foxes almost have the complete run of the hen house.

Not saying I’m giving up, but the ballot box seems a rather hopeless option at this point. Two other options left, and we’re exercising one of them right here. For now. :)

ACORN hasn’t been around that long. Who was doing it before they came along?

They have been around since 1970 and their first mission was to get people who could have advanced on their own into LBJ's Great Society welfare instead of being productive citizens. ACORN suceeded. Now they take the second and third generation of the Great Society wards of the state, and turn them into angry mobs to overthrow the very state that has supported them for their entier lives.

See Cloward-Priven Strategy. Got to give those guys credit. They are evil geniuses and am sure they have a special place in hell for all the lives they have destroyed.

I really hope you are correct. Do the rumor mills offer hope that significant indictments will occur?
