How About 'Lipstick on a Pig that Ate the ACORN?'

ACORN is in trouble. Again. ("Bad voter applications found").

According to the Detroit Free Press article that ran today:

Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.

The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN's Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.

"There appears to be a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications," said Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State's Office. "And it appears to be widespread."

But don’t worry. It will all blow over. And Obama’s name won’t be dragged into it.

ACORN is America’s foremost perpetrator of voter fraud, as well as being the very definition of that hazy concept of “community organization,” as in, “I was a community organizer.”

ACORN has also been called, with good reason, “arguably the most politically radical large-scale activist group in the country.” (“Inside Obama’s Acorn”).

ACORN has a pattern of voter fraud going back years, and across at least a dozen states. ("ACORN’s Voter Fraud in Ohio is Part of Larger Pattern").

According to Michelle Malkin,

Last July, ACORN settled the largest case of voter fraud in the history of Washington State. Seven ACORN workers had submitted nearly 2,000 bogus voter registration forms. According to case records, they flipped through phone books for names to use on the forms, including “Leon Spinks,” “Frekkie Magoal” andFruto Boy Crispila.” Three ACORN election hoaxers pleaded guilty in October. A King County prosecutor called ACORN’s criminal sabotage “an act of vandalism upon the voter rolls.” (The ACORN Obama knows).

There’s plenty more information out there on ACORN, and the very real, and very close ACORN/Obama link. You should take a look at these, too, if you have the time.

Basically, ACORN is to Community Organizing what the sun is to The Solar System.

And as we all know, the job description of “community organizer” has been in the news a lot lately, as it is Obama’s biggest qualification to become Leader of the Free World.

But read this article in the Free Press, and see if you can see where Obama’s mentioned at all as a prominent community organizer--heck, the most prominent community organizer --in ACORN's history.

And isn’t it odd ACORN’s just been busted, again, in Michigan, of all places. Could it have anything to do with Michigan being a state that both parties in this presidential election know is very close, and very much in play as Election Day approaches?

ACORN’s reaction to being confronted with thousands of duplicate voter registrations in advance of the November elections?

Instead, the Free Press is letting ACORN play the whole thing like a bad case of the sloppies.

"We certainly do our best to keep the duplications as low as possible, so we'll have to evaluate what's happening here," says ACORN spokesman, David Lagstein.

This is like Tony Soprano saying they do their best to keep corruption out of business, so they’ll certainly have to evaluate all these complaints about racketeering, money laundering, and murder.

Is that not like leaving the fox to guard the chickens? Seems like a better system of accountability is needed.
