Hilarious, all this Republican outrage over ACORN. They were the masters of voter and registration fraud and disenfranchisment in 2004. They scream only when it's not in their favor.

ACORN was listed by the FBI as an extremist group, with more than 300,000 members. Obama has been associated with ACORN for the majority of his adult life.

The DNC hired ACORN for voter registration work while knowing that it had been involved in voter fraud in 15 states since 2004.

Voter in Michigan here... is there a place we can go look to make sure we are still on the voter registration rolls?

I would be seriously pissed if I went to vote on Nov 4th and was told, too bad, we have you marked as "dead" or "unfit".

An email I recieved 2 wks. ago.
Subject: Fw: Re: FW: CAGING.......CRITICALLY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!
My sister lives in Missouri and has already received no less than FOUR (4) of these ballots (see message below Obama button). She is very intelligent, she knows she's NOT registered as a Republican, and she has contacted the supervisor of elections in her county.
I am spreading the word as widely as I can, I pray that you will do the same. It is the folks in Missouri, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida, and other such "battleground" states that need to be particularly warned!
The story is all over Progressive Talk Radio today about the McCain campaign sending absentee ballot applications to registered democrats or people that have donated to Obama's campaign. These ballots are deliberately misleading and have postage paid return addresses that are for an election clerk that is outside of your city or town. What this will end up doing is either having your vote not counted, or if you return one of these, they will cite you for election fraud, saying that you already voted absentee.
These ballots are only being sent out in 'purple states' and this is a big deal.. This is called voter caging, and is a huge problem.
The McCain campaign is stealing this election as we speak. Please get this information out to as many people as you can, and tell anyone you know who has received one of these ballots that they need to contact their city election clerk or the supervisor of elections immediately.
Also call the local media and let them know what is going on.
The main stream media is never going to cover this so we have to depend on our ground campaign to get the word out to our voters.

Obama/Ayers: Let's not overlook ANNENBERG! Obama and Ayers served on the Annenberg board together, overseeing the expenditure of millions of dollars. The records are still "unavailable". Meantime, whenever Obama is criticized he refers to his "fight the smears" website, which cites as its only source of facts, the FACTCHECK.ORG website... which is run by Annenberg! Umm, what does that say about credibility?

Obama/ACORN: ACORN is the very definition of a "community organizer" and the ties between Obama and ACORN are abundant. As a lawyer, he representaed ACORN. His campain has PAID ACORN. ACORN has been tied to so much voter fraud that they ought to be investigated under RICO! Not just this election cycle, they've been at it for DECADES! Know why Sen McCaskill was such an early and ardent Obama supporter? ACORN's activities in MO made the difference in her squeaker defeat of incumbent Jim Talent. She OWES ACORN! The tag line to hammer home: ACORN: "Where you're never too dead to vote twice!" There are a number of ACORN people now doing time in MO for voter fraud!

And raising the Keating 5 as Obama's response to Ayers???

People forget the outcome of the Keating 5 investigations!

There were 5 Senators investigated. 4 Democrats, and 1 Republican, John McCain. Three Senators were determined to have acted improperly… Cranston (D), Riegle (D) and DeConcini (D). The other two Senators were found to have done nothing improper and received no censure. Senators John Glenn (American Hero & Astronaut) and John McCain (American Hero and POW) were both criticized for poor judgment for attending meetings, but neither was considered to have had significant involvement, and neither was deemed to have committed impropriety, violation of law or violation of Senate Rules.

The 3 Senators censured did not seek re-election and their years in elected office were ended.

Senator John Glenn sought and won re-election, serving until he retired in 1999. Senator John McCain has been re-elected thru his present term and run for the presidency.

Interestingly… Senator DeConcini was later appointed by President Bill Clinton in February 1995 to the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation.

Why did this article make no mention of Obama's $800,000 donation to ACORN?
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what is going on here!

John McCain's inflammatory campaign shows the kind of motives

The fundamental difference?
John McCain puts Obama 1st before the American people as Obama put the American people 1st.

Here is what other newspapers are reporting.
"In 1995, as a lawyer in private practice, Obama and two other lawyers from his firm represented ACORN in a successful suit that forced the state of Illinois to comply with a federal law that made it easier to register to vote. The group's political arm endorsed Obama this February and an ACORN-affiliated group was paid about $800,000 for get-out-the-vote operations in four states during the primaries."
How can you be non-partisan when you paid and have now made money off of a presidential candidate
