looks that way...
As if you needed more reason to be sick of ACORN there's the distinct possibility that they are the reason that (it still hurts to say this) Al Franken is now a member of the US Senate.
How's that you say? Quite simply, it's all about math. Voter fraud math, that is.
After all the recounts and selective re-recounts were done, Franken won the election by an "official" 312 votes. And ACORN claims that they registered almost 50,000 voters in Minnesota last year. And, given the large percentage of ACORN registrations that have been proven fraudulent (too say nothing of further allegations), you easily come up with a "fraud" number bigger than the margin of victory in the race.
...ACORN's foibles may seem largely irrelevant here in Minnesota, where the organization has so far been able to keep its nose relatively clean.
But ACORN does have a special place in its heart for at least one prominent Minnesota politician. Last year, it showered praise on Al Franken, endorsing his run for the U.S. Senate. Franken returned the esteem: "I'm thrilled and honored to receive this endorsement," he gushed in a press release. He added that he was "more motivated than ever to work with ACORN." ...

So what's all the fuss about ACORN, and why should it matter to anyone? Well, if you're an American citizen, and you take citizenship seriously, it matters because our electoral process is being compromised.
As recent press reports have shown, ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) has been hard at work registering voters in all of the key battleground states for the upcoming election. And, as many of these same reports attest, they're busy being investigated for possible voter fraud. read more »
...it keeps getting better
It seems like there's something new everyday with this crowd.
Two developments in Ohio... First, the Democrat Secretary of State is appealing to the US Supreme Court a federal circuit court's ruling that she has to check recent registrants against ID records to see that they're legit... From the Plain Dealer: read more »
...more ACORN handiwork
This just keeps getting better. The St. Pete Times reports today that Mickey Mouse turned in a registration form in Florida...courtesy of the ACORN voter registration drive.
Mickey Mouse tried to register to vote in Florida this summer.
Orange County elections officials rejected his application, which was stamped with the logo of the nonprofit group ACORN. ...
This whole ACORN thing just keeps getting better. And the Republicans are finally getting them in the public's sites. McCain even spoke out about it today (after being asked though) at a town hall/rally.
In case you didn't hear, this Monday the Supreme Court voted to uphold Indiana's photo voter ID law, much to the chagrin of liberals everywhere. Which, predictably, has focused the boys and girls in the mainstream media back on the fact that the High Court is the real prize in the upcoming election. For example, this from MSNBC: read more »
