There are allegations of voter fraud, as a Dougherty County family claims the vote of a mentally challenged relative was stolen.
They say the adult day rehab program where Jack Justice attends took him to vote, without the family's permission. What's worse is Justice says the person helping him wouldn't cast the ballot for his choice for President.
I should say Despicable, if true.
Some might argue the title of this post, this is one incident after all. One can't paint an entire political party with the same brush based on one incident. But it's not just one incident. Not by a long shot.
From today's New York Post:
Four well-heeled New York Democrats are under investigation by an Ohio prosecutor for setting up a temporary home in the swing state - where two have already cast their ballots - just so that their votes will be counted there, The Post has learned.
The corrupt "grassroots" organization ACORN, has made quite a name for itself, coming in Number One in the voter fraud hall of fame. For all of ACORN's non-partisan blather Democrats are the beneficiaries of its massive fraud. This election that means Barack Obama:
Barack Obama distanced himself Tuesday from the low-income advocacy group under fire for allegations of voter fraud, as his campaign accused Republicans of exploiting the issue for political purposes.
He said his relationship with the group is "pretty straightforward," referring to legal work he and two other lawyers did for the group in 1995.
"That was my relationship and is my relationship to ACORN," he said.
From ACORN's website (emphasis mine):
ACORN is a non-profit, non-partisan social justice organization with national headquarters in New York, New Orleans and Washington, D.C.
I guess it depends on the meaning of "non-partisan":
GOTV for Obama! Ohio ACORN is doing a Get Out The Vote project with the OBAMA Campaign. Ohio ACORN is hiring canvassers to go door to door encouraging voters to vote for Barak Obama.
ACORN is hiring in Cleveland (216)431-3905 , Columbus (614)425-9491, Cincinnati (513)221-1737, for Dayton (call Cincinnati), and for Toledo call Cleveland. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org and your inquiry will be routed to the appropriate person in each of these cities. Intake and training will be held daily at local ACORN offices. Canvass begins on Wednesday Feb. 27th and will work through election day. Please, only persons wishing to work all or most of these days (Saturday and Sunday included) should inquire.
Please do not contact the Obama campaign directly regarding this post as they are not the organization doing the hiring and it will only distract their staff and volunteers from the other important work they are doing on behalf of Senator Obama.
Non-partisan? Take note at 3:06:
Do Obama's die-hard supporters care about any of this? I don't think so. Speaking for myself, a die-hard Republican (conservative first), I would be outraged if John McCain were involved in such massive fraud. Or any Republican for that matter.
Make no mistake. Barack Obama is involved. And he's lawyering up to combat any and all voter fraud allegations. He obviously knows he's going to need the "largest law firm" in the country to cover his tracks. It just might work.
