If Its Not Close They Can't Cheat: Updated

That is the title of a Book Hugh Hewitt wrote a few years ago and it rings ever truer today as the liberal community organizing group with very close ties to Barack Obama, ACORN, is facing charges of voter fraud in several states with new ones coming out in Detroit Michigan. They are already under investigation for fraudulent voter registrations in Ohio, Missouri, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. They were busted for the largest case of voter fraud in Washington state a few years ago. Obama's campaign has paid them more than $800,000 and tried to cover it up for front work for his campaign and get out the vote efforts which for them means voting while dead, illegal or multiple times. Michelle Malkin has been watching them closely for a while now and has the latest from Michigan and much more.

Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.

The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN’s Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.

“There appears to be a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications,” said Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office. “And it appears to be widespread.”

Those paid part time employees have often been, homeless, felons or child molesters that are paid by the number of people they register which leaves the door open for widespread abuse of the system and seriously undermines the very basis of our democracy. Obama is a product of the Chicago Daley Machine that is famous for stuffing the ballot box and I believe ACORN is based there as well. Obama also worked closely with ACORN in his early days as a community organizer and they have of course endorsed him this year. The problem with all this widespread fraud is that results of the election could be tied up for weeks in close states over wrangling about provisional and absentee ballots and multiple recounts. ACORN and their activities are a serious blight on our electoral system and they should be investigated and ultimately broken up.

Update: Dan Riehl has some more and a related article on stealing elections at NRO. That is why I am strong proponent of voter ID laws. The only people they disenfranchise are the dishonest.

Update: Atlas has more on Wisconsin
And much more here.

This may be off topic--but I'm listening to Joe Biden on TV right now, and he is very skilled at being a lying weasle.

LOL! "Lying weasels" seem to be in abundance on the left.

Goat, I heard about this Acorn organization on Hannity and Colmes last night. Of course Colmes defended Obama - he always does. But it was brought out at least, and I'm glad to see that it was.

Just watch! I'll bet Acorn manages to screw up the election this year too!

Goat, outstanding post and referrals as usual. Talsmans Gate had a post on Obama many months ago and his ties to Iraq millionaires. Not many picked it oup at that time, but it's now coming home to roost...As my dad use to say....Water seeks it's own level......to me not much is known about this individual who would be president and the media isn't doing its' job by not asking the right questions. Why aren't the people who oversee these conglomerates or whatever who have gone belly up, held accountable for no oversight?????? oh nooooo, just bill the voters and fire the CEO's with serverance packages in the millions......seems fair to me...I ramble off point,,,,sorry.....

Keep up the good work of informing the public about the dangers of an Obama presidency. Just the corruption alone would make Slick Willie look like a small-time operator. I like this posting enough to quote it in my own "Bloodthirsty Warmonger" blog.
