Posted on 09/09/2009 7:51:22 AM PDT by VMIPubby36
Arrest warrants have been issued in Miami for 11 people suspected of falsifying information on hundreds of voter registration cards last year. The FBI and state authorities were making arrests Wednesday. The workers being sought were hired to register voters by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. Prosecutors say they were first notified by ACORN about problems with workers in June 2008. Republicans and conservative activists have accused ACORN of fraud in voter registration drives around the country. ACORN officials say the Florida case proves the organization is committed to an honest process. The case involved nearly 900 fraudulent voter cards in the Homestead area.

The whole election of 2008 was a fraud.
ACORN didn't get slapped, 11 ACORN workers got slapped and thrown under the bus by ACORN. Nothing to see here folks, move along...
Why is the FBI racist?/s
wouldn’t that be the equivalent of walking in a bank,pulling a gun, saying “hands up everyhone” and then walking out without demanding money?
``This was really some individuals who were trying to defraud their employer.’’ [snip]
“Those arrested are charged with several counts of false swearing in connection with voting or elections and submission of false voter registration information, both third-degree felonies.”
Why would someone earning $8-$10 per hour run the risk of being charged with a third degree felony? It’s not like they were being paid by the piece, per registration obtained. ACORN hiring lowlifes?
Nothing on CNN as of now.....surprise!/s
ACORN has this scam down pat. They hire people who will be considered less than credible in court so any testimony against ACORN itself is seen as suspect.
And that's just in one district. Imagine how many must have been used by felons, illegals, multiple voters, etc. around the country. Multiply 900 times 50 states. That's 45,000 votes right there. Now multiply 900 by the number of districts around the country, and the number would be unbelievable.
No wonder democrats "win" elections. I've always wondered who in their right mind would vote for these fascists. It turns out not that many are actually voting for them after all!
We seriously need voter ID legislation.
“ACORN Turns in Florida Workers on Voter Fraud Charges”
See. ACORN’s a paragon of virtue and anyone who says otherwise is a nutter.
(That’s their story and they’re sticking to it.)
They have had at least one manager caught skimming from his local branch. With the kinds of cah they have flowing into their cffers, the urge to skim and embezzle from the organisation will be too much for the crooks to bear.
what?! people who will vote for a pack of smokes or bottle of Maddog are ‘less than credible’?
cah = cash
Hitler tried to eliminate anyone without blond hair and blue eyes. Hitler had black hair and brown eyes himself.
because they've already have numerous other felonies and don't care and/or are just plain dumb.
It depends on what office the Smokes and maddog are running for.
It is taxpayer money from the government going to these ACORN assholes.
I thought Hitler was after a complete Aryan nation.
Blonde hair included in fact necessary.
“they were first notified by ACORN about problems with workers in June 2008”
heart of the story.I can’t recall ACORN turning in their own workers although i could be wrong. The other part of the sentence says it took better than a year for them to bring charges.
Lets try and forget we've got upwards of 30 million people in this country illegally, that have totally compromised and undermined our electoral process.
And what about Acorn’s Minnesota connection during the last election.
What ever happened to ACORN workers on trial for this in PA?
Does anyone think Eric holder will intervene and stop any and all ACORN arrests?
I laughed when I heard the little disclaimer from ACOIRN — we are self-policing.
And then reality really comes into focus....
The federal government has aided and abetted upwards of 30 million people to enter this country illegally.
This lawless breakdown of our constitution and civil order has subverted our entire system and has totally compromised and undermined our electoral process.
The government might as well print 2 trillion dollars in conterfit currency and circulate it...Oh wait....

nothing ever seems to come of any of it.
Yup. It is a Graftapalooza.
I wonder if the public will ever figure out that the only way Democrats can win is if they cheat. The past month shows it’s obvious the public doesn’t support their left wing policies.
If you google this threads title Fox and The Miami Herald are the only ones reporting it.
The MSM don’t like reporting bad things about they’re false messiah.
They needed a few human sacrifices for the cleansing. The Marxist Messiah is getting bad PR.
“ACORN officials say the Florida case proves the organization is committed to an honest process. The case involved nearly 900 fraudulent voter cards in the Homestead area.”
Newspeak. Lies are truth and the truth is a lie.
If there’s voter fraud around the country, they’re not committed to an honest process.
"Oh crap, Joe. We need to order another ACORN 'break-in,' just like the one in Boston last October. Make sure they get the computers with donor & voter lists this time, too."
Yeah. That's what I said. He tried to eliminate anyone without blond hair and blue eyes, but he had black hair and brown eyes himself.
The arrests are ``further evidence we've been policing our own folks and report people attempting to commit voter registration fraud,'' said ACORN spokesman Brian Kettenring. ``This was really some individuals who were trying to defraud their employer.''
Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle praised ACORN.
``We've been very aggressive about a lot of these cases,'' she said. ``But we would not have known about these workers unless ACORN brought it to us
Acorn throwing the lower level workers under the bus to prove they are an "honest, upright org."! What a bunch of losers. If they were so great why didn't they catch these people while it was happening? The whole org is shot full of communists and criminals.
I think you are wrong. These workers are sacrificial lambs and will be offered up for slaughter. Acorn is trying to shift the blame to the lower workers, they have turned these people in for the express purpose of taking the heat off of the top of the organization. I hope it doesn't work, but in the meantime these workers will be prosecuted to fake a purge of Acorn.
It has been reported that ACORN over many years has been warned/arrested/ and they keep doing the same crimes over and over and over. When thye get cought they say, “oh we will fire them, we did not know what was going on.”
Alinsky tactic 101
Now....they throw a few under the bus to deflect and hide.
Alinsky tactic 102
AG Eric Holder throws all the ACORN crime investigations out and no one dares notice
Alinsky tactic 103 dash 666
If they knowingly hired known criminals or ex cons with the express purpose of getting them, bribing them or intimidating them to perform illegal acts or engage in illegal conduct, that is aiding and abetting (minimally) and as such can be used to prosecute ACORN chapter leaders.
If they were honest, they'd turn in the Marxist big wigs in charge and leave the homeless people out of it.
Hopefully not on the wrist. The question is whether or not more arrests will be forthcoming and whether or not the charges against them will get past Eric Holder.
I don't think so because Glenn said it "Would blow our minds." and we all know ACORN is crooked as all get out.
I sense a pardon on the way. :)
I say it is not the severity of the offense that deters, but the likelihood of getting caught. They are all so used to not having to be accountable that chasing them now would be like shooting fish in a barrel.
This doesn’t seem that big, Glenn said it was big, possibly the big story ever in American politics.
