    Washington Examiner ^ | October 26, 2012 | Joel Gehrke
    International election observers planning to visit Texas polling places have “full immunity” from being arrested in the United States, the State Department said when discussing a letter from the Texas Attorney General. “I’m not going to get into any kind of hypothetical situations or predict where this is going to go other than to say we have every expectation that this will be worked out and to state the fact, which is that under U.S. law they are eligible for immunities,” said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. Reporters tried to get her to state explicitly that Texas could not arrest...

    AUSTIN – State Attorney General Greg Abbott's admonition that international election observers – part of what the Texas Secretary of State's office called a long-standing exchange program to promote learning – could be criminally prosecuted if they overstep Texas law was deemed "unacceptable" by the group's director. The flap was prompted when Abbott wrote a letter to Ambassador Daan Everts at the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights in the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. The Republican attorney general, in a press release announcing the letter, noted the group is "a United Nations partner." Some conservatives and...

    GALVESTON - A federal judge Tuesday refused to lift an order blocking enforcement of Texas laws that make voter registration drives difficult, but modified his order to allow counties to more easily track deputy voter registrars. U.S. District Judge Gregg Costa refused a request by Secretary of State Hope Andrade that he stay a preliminary injunction issued Aug. 2 while the state appeals the ruling to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Galveston County Tax Assessor-Collector Cheryl Johnson is also a defendant. Costa blocked enforcement of five provisions of Texas voter registration law in a lawsuit brought by two...

    Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, a recent book by J.

A five-year DOJ Voting Rights Section veteran, Adams cites his firsthand experience with officials who sought to promote a radical racialist agenda and who knowingly violated the National Voting Rights Act (NVRA).

    I found the press release Obama issued to get Project Vote rolling, in the ACORN archives at the Wisconsin Historical Society. (Obama worked closely with ACORN on this campaign, his later denials notwithstanding.) The release quotes Obama explaining the need for Project Vote by pointing to the rioting in Los Angeles. Said Obama in 1992: “The Los Angeles riots reflect a deep distrust and disaffection with the existing power pattern in our society.” That’s Alinsky-speak for “We’ve got to use the power of the angry underclass to put capitalism in check.” Naturally, we’ll continue to disagree about whether Obama’s...

    A Las Vegas judge has spared senior ACORN executive Amy Adele Busefink jail time for her role in a notorious voter fraud conspiracy. Judge Donald Mosley sentenced Busefink to two years imprisonment but suspended the jail time provided that she abides by the terms of her probation. She was also fined a total of $4,000 and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service. Prosecutors had argued for a fine of just $1,000. Voter fraud, sometimes called electoral fraud, is a blanket term encompassing a host of election-related improprieties. This isn’t the first time Busefink was involved in shady electoral...

Project Vote has been accused of voter registrations fraud in more than a dozen states.

    On Oct. 6, the community organizing group Acorn and an affiliated charity called Project Vote announced with jubilation that they had registered 1.3 million new voters. But it turns out the claim was a wild exaggeration, and the real number of newly registered voters nationwide is closer to 450,000, Project Vote’s executive director, Michael Slater, said in an interview. The remainder are registered voters who were changing their address and roughly 400,000 that were rejected by election officials for a variety of reasons, including duplicate registrations, incomplete forms and fraudulent submissions from low-paid field workers trying to please their supervisors,...

    The American Thinker ^ | October 18, 2008 | James Simpson
    Since even CNN is now reporting on widespread voter fraud being perpetrated by the radical group ACORN, Obama has been forced once again to distance himself from his old buddies. I guess Bill Ayers and Reverend Jeremiah Wright won't feel so lonely anymore. Interestingly, despite their damning report on ACORN, CNN uncritically repeated what has now become the official Obama position on all his radical friends, to wit: "I hardly knew the man..." In the final presidential debate Wednesday night Obama reiterated that his only tie to ACORN was representing them along with the U.S. Justice Department, in a lawsuit...

    WASHINGTON: Barack Obama says he only had limited ties to ACORN, and they began in 1995. But other encounters with the group, plus a voter-registration drive he conducted called Project Vote three years earlier, calls his account into question. Twice in the last week, Barack Obama has said his relationship with ACORN -- the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now -- began and ended with legal work he did for the group in 1995. The Democratic presidential candidate made his remarks in an effort to distance himself from the low-income advocacy group, which is under investigation for voter fraud...

    Modern Conservative ^ | Christopher Cook
    By Christopher Cook What can derail Obama on his crazy-train ride to becoming America's Dear Leader President?Well, the first point has to be that given the climate, he should be ten points out in front. After eight years of the media and the left cranking the permatantrum™, the ever-swinging swing voter should be ready to give in and give the tantrum-throwing baby whatever it wants. And yet, not surprisingly, they haven't yet fully bought the Obamaessiah.  Barack Obama is an appallingly bad candidate, and in most any other circumstance, he'd be way behind. Only in a year that should be...

    National Review ^ | 10/10/2008
    If we learned anything from the mess in Florida in 2000, it’s this: When elections don’t end on Election Day, things get ugly quickly. That is why today, and not the day after Election Day, is the day for Americans of all political stripes to aggressively press for more robust safeguards against vote fraud and for immediate action on the registration-fraud investigations targeting ACORN, the community-organizing enterprise that has been the sometime employer and full-time ally of Barack Obama. ACORN’s voter-registration affiliate, Project Vote, was founded by leftist activist Sandy Newman. When Newman was looking to hire somebody to run...

    Obama Offices Different, Separate and Apart From Democrat Party Offices Does Obama Campaign Not Trust the Democrats? Or is it the Clintons? Will Election 2008 be remembered as the first contest between Republicans and Obamacrats–or the first between the Obamacrats and the Democrats? Senator Barack Obama is building a national organization separate and apart from the national Democrat Party apparatus–at least in any state where the outcome of the November election is at all in doubt. In state after state, the Obama campaign, in a break with tradition, has opened up its own offices–which largely push Barack Obama, and only...

    The Post Chronicle ^ | October 10, 2008 | Michael J. Gaynor
    If you believe Crystal Gail Mangum, the ex-convict stripper still falsely posing as a gang rape victim, you probably believe that the innocuously named ACORN (the acronym for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is a fine association honorably pursuing laudable goals. That's nuts! Mangum is a con artist still lying outrageously and ACORN is a sinister association out to take over America by putting politicians of its choosing, especially Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., in power, by doing whatever it takes, despite the law. ACORN is dangerous. Bowing to ACORN's political power and thuggish tactics resulted in many of...
  • Barack Obama's Involvement with ACORN Unearthed, Missing Article Recovered

    While Barack Obama's connection with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has not gone entirely unreported, it has not been fully explained. Most media background pieces simply note Obama's involvement in a 1995 lawsuit on behalf of ACORN. Obama's own website, as well as most major media, fail to reveal the full depth and extent of his relationship with the organization. Attempts to hide evidence of Obama's involvement with ACORN have included wiping the web clean of potentially damaging articles that had appeared, and were previously publicly accessible. Unfortunately, those behind the attempted cover-up failed to...

    The Canton (Ohio) Repository ^ | October 19, 2008 | BY ROBERT WANG
    CANTON Thomas Buckius registered to vote last month when canvassers came to his neighborhood as part of a voter registration drive. "I want (Democratic presidential nominee Barack) Obama to win because he'll be the first African-American president," said Buckius, 21, who lives in a southwest neighborhood comprising mostly of blacks. "I think he can do better than what Bush is doing." But Obama didn't have Buckius' vote in the bank yet. Buckius said he didn't know when Election Day was, nor where he was supposed to vote. And while Buckius insisted he'll figure out how to get to the polls,...

    Washington Times ^ | Friday, October 10, 2008 | S.A. Miller
    Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama's campaign distanced itself Thursday from its $800,000 payment linked to the liberal ACORN organization, which is under investigation in several states where it is suspected of filing fraudulent voter registrations. Federal Election Commission reports show ACORN-affiliated Citizens Services Inc. got $832,598 from the Obama campaign for get-out-the-vote work during the primaries. But those payments stopped in May and the Obama campaign says they should not be an election issue. "This is going to be an historic election with unprecedented voter participation, and we are committed to protecting the integrity of the voting process," Obama...
