Republicans Slam Group Suspected Of Voter Fraud

Republican National Committee officials say they aren't surprised to hear a Durham County elections official suspects voter registration forms gathered by a community activist group may be fraudulent.

The RNC's chief counsel, Sean Cairncross, on Friday said the group, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, has a history of gathering fraudulent or incomplete voter registration forms. Cairncross disputes ACORN's claim that it is a nonpartisan organization.

The Herald-Sun of Durham reported Friday that Durham County elections director Mike Ashe asked state elections officials to check about 80 registration forms for possible fraud. The registrations were among about 4,000 the group submitted in Durham County over the last couple of months.

    How do you think Kerry-Edwards was so close? All states should require photo ID prior to the booth. But our state would not get the hispanic vote they need to get re-elected. The federal government needs a law, not the state, that mandates prison for voter fraud. I wonder how many of the voters are deceased? Yes, they do that too. The check the obituary to see who has passed and then use their names at the voting booth in the area they lived. Liberals are low life scum that only care about their personal belief whether its right or wrong, its theirs.

    There is no excuse for this group still being allowed to operate. They have been caught in thousands of cases of vote fraud. When people from poor communities get paid to register voters, they have an incentive to meet their quota in any way possible. ACORN should be shut down and never allowed to operate again and anyone caught participating in illegal election rigging should do time and never be allowed to vote again. Period.

    Liberals cannot win on ideas or issues. The only way they ever win is through lies, corruption, the liberal media omitting facts in a story to spin it in a positive light or supporting the lies of the left. If they could actually win on ideas and policies none of these groups would even be necessary. (Acorn, Rock the Vote, Vote or Die, thousands of Democrats pounding the pavement to register new voters, etc.)There would be plenty of liberal voters to support them. They can't and never have been able to come right out and say exactly what they want to do and how they intend to do it. If they were that honest they probably wouldn't even exist. Most of their supporters wouldn't even vote for them. That is one of the main reason's for being a master of spin. You never really answer a question directly if at all, and when all else fails, blame someone else. It is never your fault. I have NEVER heard a Democrat take ownership of anything negative. It is always someone else's fault.

    Not a surprise in the slightest. This is par for the course for some liberal groups. They talk about reform and change and all the while they are cheating and talking out of both sides of their mouths. It all comes back in the end.

    You know some people are so stupid they do not deserve recognition.

    Anyone caught in a voting fraud scheme should receive prison terms,fines and not be allowed to vote for X number of years.

    In order to avoid the possibility of a bigger mess than Florida had a time back on voter fraud, counterfeit forms and ballots, defective voter machines, stolen voter counts, and anything else that can go wrong on voting day, those in charge should in my opinion get ready now. It appears the upcoming Presidential will be close, and if so we could have riots and near wars. The election committees and the Police throughout our Country should be ready for the worst. Don't get caught in a position where a handful of culprits, thugs, thieves, and the like, can throw the entire process in a turmoil and tie up the election for weeks or more. Check out your own house first, don't let yourself get infiltrated, corrupted, bribed, etc. and try to clean up the mess of others. Just my opinion, get ready. Thanks.

    Acorn is just another left wing machine trying to get Obama elected at any cost.

    Truth be known, there is a very high liklihood that there is Democrat voter fraud in every precinct in every state in the Union. It's the reason so many Democrats are elected to office. The Democrats keep trying to block measures that would make it harder to perpetrate their fraud; one such measure being photo ID requirements for voters.
