LAS VEGAS — Nevada authorities on Tuesday raided the Las Vegas headquarters of a community organization that works to get low-income people to vote, seeking documents and records in an ongoing voter fraud investigation.Here's another interesting tidbit about ACORN and their intimidation tactics. From the Atlanta Journal Constitution, written by a fellow named Terry Garlock:
Secretary of State Ross Miller said fraudulent registrations submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now [ACORN] included registration forms for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys football team.
“Tony Romo is not registered to vote in the state of Nevada, and anybody trying to pose as Terrell Owens won’t be able to cast a ballot on Nov. 4,” Miller said.
Miller said other voter registration forms used false names or information, or had duplicated information on multiple forms.
Charles D. Jackson, a New Orleans-based spokesman for the group also known as ACORN, declined immediate comment to The Associated Press....
My introduction to ACORN was in the 1990s. When the savings and loan debacle occurred and large numbers of S&Ls had to be taken into receivership, I was the eastern U.S. director of investigations for the Resolution Trust Corporation, the agency established to clean up the mess.Terry, I'm not a real journalist, but let me tell you something: There's plenty of fraud going on. If you don't believe me, just ask Tony Romo and the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys - they'll tell you all about it.......
My staff of investigators worked with the FBI, federal prosecutors and local law enforcement on criminal matters and with internal and external lawyers to bring civil claims against those who caused major S&L losses.
The RTC took control of assets, such as foreclosed real estate, to sell on behalf of taxpayers.
That’s where ACORN came in... ACORN wanted RTC’s foreclosed homes and apartment buildings to be made available for free housing, rather than sold for market value to recover taxpayer funds. To make their point, instead of jawboning with Congress where the RTC mandates were made, they demonstrated and intimidated at RTC offices.
In our office in King of Prussia, Pa., for a time we had police officers on site to escort staff to and from their cars to reduce the chance of violence to their person or automobile by ACORN thugs....
If you have been watching the news about Democrat-sponsored, high-energy, same-day registration and early voting, you might have noticed ACORN is involved. I suspect fraud, but to be fair and accurate, I don’t know.
If there are any real journalists left, maybe they could check it out and report the facts without loaded words.
Incidentally, according to ACORN's national Web site, the group has registered 1.3 million voters nationwide for the Nov. 4 election. So, it looks like Obama's "Chicago Style" politics is paying off.
And they say "Crime doesn't pay?" Right, tell it to the Marines.......
