"Show Me Just One, Charlie"--Well, How About 30%?

Tom Barrett's office could be crowded if ACORN's own numbers are accurate.

The folks over at ACORN - Barack Obama's favorite "community organizers" - now admit that more than 30 percent of the 1.3 million voter-registration forms they submitted this year were rejected by election officials nationwide

ACORN says no more than "1 to 1.5 percent" involved actual fraud - which was committed, according to their friends at The New York Times, by "low-income field workers trying to please their supervisors." They were only following orders, you see ...

...a long [NYTimes] story a couple of pages later cites a report by ACORN's own lawyer that says the relationships between the group's 174 affiliates may have violated multiple federal laws.
The report raises problems, the article adds, about possible illegal use of charitable dollars for political purposes, improper money transfers and conflicts created by employees working for ACORN affiliates

Oh, 'what's a few votes here and there,' in the words of a local Democrat...

Registration cards don't vote, you ninny.

Yah, Cap, you're right.

OTOH, false registrations in Wisconsin only require that some bozo swears up-and-down that you, indeed, ARE Mickey Mouse.

Then you, too, can vote!!
