Joe Thompson] stood outside ACORN's door at 411 Bellamah Ave. N.W. and blamed the group for faulty voter registration cards.  'We have proof,' Thompson declared.  Part of that proof, they say, includes a copy, produced by Thompson, of young Stout's voter registration form, turned in by Christina Gonzales, a former ACORN employee."  (Shea Andersen, "More Glare On Voter Sign-Ups," Albuquerque Tribune, 8/25/04)

Submit Faulty Registrations In Exchange For Crack Cocaine.  "Elections officials knew something was wrong when they got voter registration cards for Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy, Michael Jordan and George Foreman. … They notified the Defiance County sheriff, who arrested Chad Staton on Monday on a felony charge of submitting phony voter registration forms. Investigators also were looking into allegations that he was paid with cocaine in exchange for his efforts. Staton, 22, had fraudulently filled out more than 100 voter registration forms, Sheriff David Westrick said.  … According to Westrick, the NAACP's National Voter Fund had submitted the false registrations to the elections board in Cleveland."

(Paige St. John, "Rumors Of Vote Fraud Rampant," Florida Today, 10/2/04)

Moving America Forward is a Democratic group linked to New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson." (Adrienne Packer, "Voter Fraud Allegations: Judge Denies Request," Las Vegas Review-Journal, 10/16/04)

This election will be decided by Congress in January. Sorry, but that's what will happen.

I'm happy with that. As long as the SCOTUS is not involved. Let the Democrat lawyers decend like a plague. Bottom line: the legislatures have the last word.

America will not put up with this when we are at war. Besides, 1/4 democrats think Bush is going to win anyway--and with that idiot cutter giving the playbook away...Well looks kind of despirate to me. Sort of like "Base please come out to vote to at least get us close so we can cheat"

If Clinton is sposed to be such a big political power, deploy him to Ohio or Florida. Why bring him to PA unless the internals are telling kerry something he does not want to hear?

Bottom line: If it's not close, they can't steal it. GOTV.

The Democrat playbook is Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals"

It spells out the tactics on how to steal an election

It was followed to the letter by the Dems in 2000 and the signs are there that they have it in play again.
