Fraud at ACORN and Points of Light; will Obama disown ACORN?

Nonprofits are so clean that they’re worshipped by the haters of for-profit corporations, until the NY Times reports on fraud at ACORN and Points of Light.

“The ACORN that Obama knows”

He was an organizer for ACORN? Wow!

ACORN apparently covered up its fraud. Points of Light went to prosecutors.

Election fraud seems to be a specialty. Very unAmerican, don’t you think?

    Embezzlement sucks. I agree with that, ACORN should have informed its board and gone to prosecutors.   But you gotta admit, it’s nothing like the GOP candidate to be our next Senator confounding Iraqi reconstruction and working against American interests just to build up his for-profit Big Oil portfolio.  Right?  You’re not just a partisan? Right?  I gave you your points, and agreed ACORN screwed up.  Now its your turn.

      Schaffer did nothing illegal. ACORN has been involved in several voter fraud cases.

      Free access to WSJ editorial is here. ACORN’s fraud apparently reaches into the highest offices of the Democratic Party.

        It gets better, according to Malkin:

        If you don’t know what ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is all about, you better bone up. This left-wing group takes in 40 percent of its revenues from American taxpayers — you and me — and has leveraged nearly four decades of government subsidies to fund affiliates that promote the welfare state and undermine capitalism and self-reliance, some of which have been implicated in perpetuating illegal immigration and encouraging voter fraud. A new whistleblower report from the Consumer Rights League claims that Chicago-based ACORN has commingled public tax dollars with political projects. Who in Washington will fight to ensure that your money isn’t being spent on these radical activities?

        Don’t bother asking Barack Obama. He cut his ideological teeth working with ACORN as a “community organizer” and legal representative. Naturally, ACORN’s political action committee has warmly endorsed his presidential candidacy. ACORN head Maude Hurd gushes that Obama is the candidate who “best understands and can affect change on the issues ACORN cares about” — like ensuring their massive pipeline to your hard-earned money. Let’s take a closer look at the ACORN Obama knows.

        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” and “Fruto 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 group’s vandalism on electoral integrity is systemic. ACORN has been implicated in similar voter fraud schemes in Missouri, Ohio and at least 12 other states. The Wall Street Journal noted: “In Ohio in 2004, a worker for one affiliate was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations that included underage voters, dead voters and pillars of the community named Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey. During a congressional hearing in Ohio in the aftermath of the 2004 election, officials from several counties in the state explained ACORN’s practice of dumping thousands of registration forms in their lap on the submission deadline, even though the forms had been collected months earlier.”

    Big Oil Bob, working for his own interests against the direction of the U.S. State Department, and now running to be a senator is nothing compared to a group..from where?…engaging in illegal activity.  How credible is rottonacorn.org anyways?  Let’s see…

    OOOO, in 2004 some organizer didn’t turn their voter registration cards in on time!

    During a traffic stop, police found more than 300 voter registration cards in the trunk of a former ACORN employee, who had violated a legal requirements that registration cards be submitted to the Secretary of State within 10 days of being filled out and signed.

    I’m sure this information will have tremendous impact on the 2008 election, unlike Bumbling Bob acting in a war zone in a manner that exacerbates instability in the region while we have over a hundred thousand troops deployed.  

    I stand corrected snark

    Man, you guys are going to lose so big.  I’m having a PIG ROAST!

    includes no identifying information.  That pretty much tells you right there how credible they are.
