What do you think of ACORN & Obama now that ACORN has reportedly committed massive fraud in multiple states?

Shameful, Socialist, UNAMERICAN... and oh did I say illegal?
As of today, 8 October 2008, it can be documented that:
He has been very active in SUPPORTING ACORN - with Bill Ayers - ... with hundreds of thousands of dollars in support while a Chicago Senator and US Senator. DOCUMENTABLE.
Are the legit? As of today, 8 October 2008
* Yesterday, Nevada officials raided ACORN's Las Vegas office after election authorities accused the group of submitting multiple voter registrations with fake and duplicate names. Among the bogus monikers: names of former Dallas Cowboys players.
* Lake County, Ind., election officials this month rejected thousands of registration forms ACORN had turned in from its drives this summer. On a conference call yesterday, GOP officials noted that up to 11,000 of the applications were no good - tying up election officials and jeopardizing the voting rights of untold victims whose identities may have been stolen.
In what seems to be ACORN's standard operating procedure, vote canvassers had pulled names and addresses from phone books and forged signatures. According to a local paper (the Northwest Indiana and Illionois Times), "Large numbers of voter registration forms bore signatures all in the same apparent handwriting style" and "apparently the organization's canvassers broke rules to meet ACORN-set voter registration quotas to get paid." The fake registrants include dead people and underage kids.
* Milwaukee, Wisc., officials last month discovered at least seven felons employed as voter-registration workers for ACORN and another affiliated group. (State law bans felons from such work.) They also uncovered a raft of problematic voter-registration cards. The state GOP accuses the group of trying to get dead, imprisoned or imaginary people on the voter rolls. Fraud has plagued ACORN's Milwaukee chapter since the last election cycle.
* In Florida, in Orange County alone, ACORN workers turned in multiple, copycat forms for six separate voters over the summer. The Miami Herald reports: "One individual had 21 duplicate applications."
Election officials had flagged ACORN's negligent practices months ago. But it may be too late: In Orange, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, ACORN has signed up 135,000 new voters, nearly 60 percent of them registered as Democrats - a fifth of all new voters in that region.
* In Ohio, large numbers of homeless people got free van and bus rides to register. Shelby Holliday, a reporter for Palestra.net, filmed ACORN shuttling in some prospects. She told me she spoke with one homeless woman who said ACORN "told her who to vote for if she wanted a 'better life,' and told her not to worry about jury duty (one of the reasons this homeless woman didn't want to register) because the government probably wouldn't be able to track her down. She was registering with a temporary address."
What is the BIG Deal about Obama and ACORN?
A truly thorough research into his background will bring up questions.
Experience. None. Chicago Politics. George W Bush had 2 terms as Texas Governor... Not a supporter of him, but he had more experience than Obama and you see the mistakes he caused. What will a professional politician with no experience do? He will trust his advisors... Like Bush trusted Cheney... and you see how well that worked.
Why would he attend a church for 20 years where volitile points of view are accepted and studied rigorously? Does that mean he is racist? What would the media do if John McCain attended an all-white church with volitile European centric minded points of view?
Friends, everyone has at least one friend. If only your pet dog, Rover. But in Chicago, your political friends and associates can make or break you... So, what is with William Ayers, Tony Rezko, Bernadette Dohrn, Nadhami Auchi, and many others? Now, look at your friends. Your friends are somewhat of a reflection of who you are. Doves generally associate with doves, lambs generally keep with lambs, and yes liberals generally associate with other liberals...
Family, even more an indication of influences... 1) Father - Muslim... 2) Brother (Abongo 'Roy' Obama )- Muslim running for office and attempting to institute Sharia law... Obama supports him in his endeavours... 3) "Cousin" (Odinga) - self-proclaimed Kenyan Christian, made campaign promise to institute Sharia law in muslim territories, received campaign financing from Khadafi, Obama campaigned on his behalf to such an extent that Kenya made a formal complaint to State Dept., attempted a coup after he lost the election, Marxist educated in Soviet Union, rabidly anti-Israel
Have his supporters heard any of this?Source(s): Google, CNN, Washington Post, The Case Against Barack Obama

Why this year is ACORN so in the spotlight? ACORN has been in existence since 1970 and from 2004 they have registered over 3 million people. 1.3 million in the last year alone. The rough count of the allegations of fraudulent voter forms in this article culminates to roughly 10,000 being extremely generous. That accounts for less than 1% of the total amount of forms that have submitted. Yeah that is real scary!
Taking into account that they are also include illegible forms and human error, this drops the percent even further. I would say without ACORN involvement there would still be this level of error. There is no bogeyman nor conspiracy involved in this... while the folks at ACORN have questionable staffing policies, that is basically all there is to it. I've known persons that have worked at ACORN... 18-19 year old KIDS who get paid $3 per voter card. Now that may be a recipe for disaster, but not a conspiracy to steal elections. (Diebold maybe)
All those trying to tie our future president to this...Obama was a lawyer along side the US dept. of Justice for an ACORN case. But that's all folks, no other direct relationship existed. MSM is not providing any additional details to quench your blood thirst because none exist. If there were it would be exposed, they are in it for the ratings,..duh.
Additionally, I have searched high and low for a credible news source that has facts that Obama PAID $800,000 to ACORN. The only sources on this are the radical right, and I would no more believe them than I would an article in the Final Call about McCain.
Stop looking under the bed for the boogyman...

Obama worked for ACORN so he knows what is going on there. He seems to be turning a blind eye to the fraud that is going on. But it has been going on for a long time. Don't forget, those of you who hate Fox News and Beck, they are the ones that have been uncovering the story behind ACORN's illegal actions. And please don't use the excuse that Obama didn't know. Just isn't true. I wish you love: Open your eyes and your ears. Obama is not the wonderful guy you seem to think he is. He told us himself that if you wanted to know what he believed then look to the people he surrounds himself with. We have and we are and we don't like it one bit.

the head of ACORN acknowledged today that it is happening but says they are not responsible.
Obama helped organize today's ACORN and was on the payroll. the Obama DNC gave ACORN nearly one million dollars to get more voters registered and bus them in to file absentee ballots.
The busdrivers and workers admitted they were urging the people they rounded up from halfway houses and off the street to vote for obama and gave away free cigarettes. they helped the get phony id's, including a couple in dallas who voted as tony roma and another famous cowboy. ohio is truly corrupt. it is a disgrace. obama will not comment on this election fraud. the fbi is investigating his matter and gathering evidence but the election will be over before it can be prosecuted.
If obama is elected, he will be impeached. a prescription for futher economic and political chaos.

Wasnt it nice of Obama to donate $800.000 to ACORN. I dont suppose he expected anything in return for that?

Why again tie Obama to Acorn? For all we know the Republicans are doing the same or maybe they are actually the ones committing the fraud and framing ACORN. Or ACORN is working for Bill Clinton so Hillary want have to wait 8 more years. It is funny how we believe what we want to believe from the "biased media".Source(s): ME

I think ACORN should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Actually I think the government should stop funding the organization also. As far as Obama goes, he's a lawyer and he's proven to be quite capable of weasling himself out of any trouble.

(Sigh) Not exactly massive. Massive is New Mexico invalidating 1/5 voter registrations because they were democrats. Massive is voter registrations disappearing in Colorado. Massive is the irregularities that continue to take place in Florida.

i think it reconfirms what most people with a brain already know but is ashamed that we have allowed for so many people to function in our nation that hold such resent and hatred of our way life
90% of black people think bush created katrina to kill them off
it is a serious situation we are in right now where truth is ignored

Are you honestly surprised? Obama comes out of the Chicago political machine. This is par for the course. I think it just gets factored into polling. You know, dead people, pets, NFL lineups all voting...
