US ATTORNEY IN OHIO TO FILE RICO ACTION AGAINST ACORN TOMORROW MORNING


Cowbell theme added; click pic

No link. Exclusive.

Someone reliable tells me this.

Oh, wait. I guess I have to say it:

IMPACTING HARD...


A Special Day: Due to unusual circumstances, the AoS Cowbell theme has been linked to a story not about economic news.

Experts believe this is only the first time the precious Cowbell Theme has been so utilized. "It's unprecedented, as far as I know," said Michael Bellesiles, who cited an non-existent microfiche as evidence. "I haven't see cowbell used in such an aggressive, imperialist fashion since the Mixed Media Cowbell Extravaganza of 2006. By the way, American settlers didn't own guns. They hunted with primitive Nerf (TM) technology learned from the Algonquin indians."

Well, he could easily become a person of interest. I would think it would be pretty easy to work up the tree by putting pressure on the low-level Acorn functionaries—probably a pretty high percentage of them are in violation of probation, have child support arrears or outstanding warrants. So, it’s easy to pressure them and work up to the next level and so forth.
Of course, there are the embezzlement issues of one of the founders...

Maybe. But for sure, they can't go over a certain voter turn out percentage. That's why they overwhelm the system with the false registrations, so they can cover that 100 or 200 that is all you need to decide a close race. 500 votes decided the election in 2000. ACORN wasn't fully ramped up them. Certain people in the DNC power circle that run with Obama decided that wasn't gonna happen again, so they are rigging the system. Texas in the DNC Primaries is a perfect example. Obama LOST Texas, but because of widespread fraud in the caucus system, stole delegates that should have gone to Hillary. I an utterly certain that Texas was NOT the only place that happened in.

I had to complete a form that requested ... If they make it this stringent in all cases, most of this stuff is pretty verifiable. I'm not sure how local absentee balloting works, though.

Sorry Allegra, but you are operating in an area from which come military ballots and, as we all know, our military is not to be trusted - lots of fraud, don'tcha know. So your ballot and those of the people around you will be examined to the nth degree while those from the areas of CONUS known for their honesty and ethical government such as Philadelphia, Cook County Chicago, and New Jersey will be taken at their word.

In fact, there were people in Florida so upset about all that military fraud in 2000 that they sued to not even count the military absentee ballots!

If only the military lived up to ACORN's standards ...

Yep. Sure would be nice if McCain had a RICO indictment to point to during the debate! “...by the way, folks, if Senator O is elected... he may have to wait a few years to be sworn in - unless they're planning to move the Oval Office to Sing Sing!”

Yep. All you need is 10 or so ballots per “controlled” voting place and your guy wins easily. I'm surprised ACORN is pushing as hard as it is. They probably have all the dead voters they need. Chicago. The home of “VOTE EARLT, VOTE OFTEN!”

While 95% turnout or more would raise suspicions, there were counties and precints in 2004 that had over 100% participation. I remember this being reported on the news after the election. Does anyone else remember this? It may have been in King county in Washington (Seattle area), but I really don’t remember exactly where it was.

I have a question about the ACORN registrations. When the Dims get there numbers padded by fake registrations, do the pollsters then start changing their sampling percentages based one those false numbers? If so, then the actual percentages between the Pubs and the Dims are not accurate and the Dims are being over polled, and therefore are the polls are WRONG, right????

BINGO! It's called "weighting the sample."

UPDATE. Looks like it may not happen:

RICO ACTION TO BE FILED AGAINST ACORN TOMORROW MORNING
NOTE MAJOR WALK-BACK OF ORIGINAL STORY

Major, Tentative Walk-Back: The "US Attorney" part has been deleted from the headline. Not bait and switch; just can't stand by that at the moment.

Damnit. In all likelihood this is not as great as first reported. So yes, I am aware that this is very disappointing. I am disappointed too. I didn't mislead or make a mistake; that was the information I had.

I also can't say for sure the old headline is wrong, but it strongly appears that way at the moment.

I'm really sorry. I can only say again "This is the information I had." Cowbell and flaming skull canceled.

I remember. But the votes counted because there was no way to figure out which were fraudulent. Suspicious yes. Remedy, no. That's why its important to stop the fraudulent voting before it starts. Positive voter identification and federal, deputized, poll watchers.

So, it might be too much of a stretch to say that one of the objectives of Obama/ACORN is to weight the polls in Bamabi’s favor and then cry RACISM when he loses. They have both bases covered. Stuff the ballot box and hope you win, and/or skew the polls and cry racism and riot if you don’t. This whole thng stinks to high heaven. Either way, there is bad crap coming down the pike on Nov. 5th.

Here is my idea to combat voter fraud. When a voter registers for the first time they MUST do so in person, no one else can do it for you. You submit your SS number, picture ID,fingerprints etc. They then issue you, after verification of your ID, a plastic card much like a debit card. It would have a Pin that only you know. When you vote you swipe it in a card reader and you are handed your ballot if your id is verified. Absentee ballots only to be given to Military personnel and people living overseas, plus those that are really going to be absent from their precinct on the day of the election. If a state has early voting the voters must still use their voter ID card to verify their ID.

No motor voter, no same day registration and voting, absentee(except military and people actually living out of country)must swear, under penalty of law, that they are really going to be out of their precinct on election day.

Maybe if you called the FBI in your area they can tell you whether they have an agent working on it in your state or not? It would be worth a shot I suppose. Especially if you think you have information they might not have considered - it wouldn’t hurt I don’t think. Maybe just mention that you’ve been researching this for a long time and may have information in your notes that will be useful for them?

Hope this helps. And, I hope someone sees these posts that can answer us! LOL

I’d still like to go back to paper ballots personally. Did you know that Hugo Chavez actually OWNS one of the Voting Machine Manufacturing and Supply companies that sells voting machines - some will be used in THIS ELECTION!

I don’t care how long it takes - a paper ballot in which you can readily see who you vote for is worth the hassle, IMHO.
