Election 2010: Zombie ACORN, Pre-Programmed Ballots, and Free Food, Gift Card bribes? (with updates)

I knew this year was going to be bad, but judging from the latest early voting reports,  it may exceed my worst fears. Be vigilant at the polls, people. Bring a camera to record any problems you run into.

Matthew Vadum reports that ACORN has risen from the ashes of the O’Keefe/Giles Sting videos firestorm, last Fall:

Like a zombie in a horror movie, ACORN is alive! Even worse, it’s still in the business of registering Mickey Mouse and dead people to vote—and the person running its get-out-the-vote operation is under indictment for felony voter registration fraud.

Project Vote, ACORN’s scandal-plagued voter registration and mobilization division, continues to operate out of ACORN’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.

Although ACORN closed many of its offices, Lewis has been working with a skeleton staff. Congressional investigators say she is consolidating power and hoarding assets. They estimate ACORN has $20 million in cash and that its affiliates hold another $10 million.

ACORN plans to resurface under a new name soon, according to John Atlas, author of Seeds of Change, a book sympathetic to ACORN. ACORN chapters in at least 13 states and the District of Columbia changed their names and obtained separate nonprofit status.

In related news, the Obama Administration is stonewalling Capital Research Center’s Freedom of Information Act request that seeks correspondence between HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan and ACORN. HUD FOIA requests must be answered within 45 days but our request has been pending for seven months.

You can read the full report at Human Events.

Stonewalling is going to be Obama’s m/o for the next 4 years. In fact, the Treasury is already hiring FOIA officers with the specific job description of Withholding Information About TARP from Taxpayers.

But I digress.

Michelle Malkin has a great round-up of ongoing voter shenanigans from Arizona to Washington: Voter fraud watch: They’re at it again.

These cases underscore the need for voters to put secretaries of state into office who will protect election integrity from radical left-wing groups. I’ve said before we need candidates like Kris Kobach, running for secretary of state in Kansas on an anti-fraud, anti-corruption, anti-ACORN platform, in every state in the nation.

As if the threat of voter fraud wasn’t enough, there are also growing concerns about election fraud:

A report today from North Carolina may be only the tip of the iceberg: Voter reports problem with ballot machine.

A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted

They’re seeing the same thing in Nevada: Nevada Voters Complain Of Problems At Polls:

Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.”Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”

Doug Powers says: Attn. Nevada Voters: Carefully Proof-Reid Your Ballot Before Submitting

And Sharron Angle, who currently enjoys a 4 point edge in the latest Rasmussen poll, sent out this alert to voters:

I have some very grave news for you.  We are leading Harry Reid in the polls and meeting our early vote goals–and yet, Sharron Angle could still lose.

As Sharron Angle’s campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks, of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor.

Two days ago, the Democratic Secretary of State announced that voters can be provided “free food” at “voter turnout events.”  Harry Reid has been offering free food and, according to other reports, some Democratic allies such as teachers’ unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid.

Before we were even able to document the reported infractions to report to the authorities, the Democrat Secretary of State slammed the door shut on preventing this behavior and issued a public statement permitting these ACORN-style tactics.  THESE are the kinds of shenanigans that can turn this race.

As crazy as those allegations sound, it wouldn’t be the first time Democrats have stooped to such pathetic measures, in fact they’ve  been doing it all month, as Gateway Pundit recently reported: Democrats Lure Voters to Polls With Free Food and Rides.

In Appalachia democrats buy votes with pork rinds. In West Virginia democrats buy votes with booze. In East St. Louis democrats buy votes with crack

Here’s the latest… In South Dakota democrats are luring potential voters to the polls with free food and rides.
The Argus Leader reported:

Democrats in South Dakota are holding three early-vote rallies on reservations this week that will feature “feeds” to attract potential voters.

That activity continues a long tradition of pairing food with voter rallies in areas of the state where Democrats garner as much as 95 percent of the vote.

Folks, it’s going to take a massive wave to overcome the fraud, this year. Every able body that can vote R, needs get out to the polls.

  1. I have a job where common sense is an absolute necessity. I look at the last few election cycles and openly wonder how we could possibly conclude that most far left wing candidates DIDN”T steal the elections. Which party WANTS non-citizens to vote and why would that be? Which party WANTS citizens that have lost the right to vote to cast their ballots regardless? Which party seems to be at the nexis of
    ALL voter fraud? Which party has had a monopoly on the MSM that openly tries to affect elections on the 11th hour? Which party has embraced billionaires that openly target Secretaries of State as candidates? Is there any clear thinking American with common sense that believes that Al Franken actually WON his election? Come on! They oppose measures to decrease voter fraud? Why would they do that? People are waking up to what’s been going on since the 1960’s and we’re pissed off.


  2. NiceDeb, stopped by for a spell — am always impressed with the depth and width of your “coverage” and of course with the effort it takes to stay on top of things… Thank you for bringing so much to us all…


  3. There is a really simple solution. Don’t use electronic voting machines. Why can’t other states go back to the old fashioned lever and crank machines like we have in New York. Sure they are old fashioned and they don’t have the best lighting but once they are sealed they are tamper-proof. Even better, use the scan machines we have in Pennsylvania. It is like taking an SAT. The machine that scans it doesn’t think of “Democrat” or “Republican”. It instead thinks in “Bubble 1” and “Bubble 2”. The state voting group decides what each bubble means. So if Republican=Bubble 1 and Bubble 1 gets 500 votes, then the Republican candidate gets 500 votes. There needs to be a single standardized form of voting so as to rid the country of any possibility of accusation of voter fraud.


  4. As to the free rides, not sure what the big deal is there. In most state both parties provides rides to people with no other way to get to the polls. I myself used to be a driver for such rides when I worked as a poll watcher in New York. Strict rules stated that we could not campaign and we could not talk about the election nor ask the person who they voted for although that should seem pretty obvious.

  6. Voter fraud is a serious danger to our way of life. It is an act of war against the United States. Life in prison or even the death penalty should be instituted for those involved in large-scale voter fraud plots.


  7. Death Penalty!?!?!? Really, and I reckon you plan to hang a couple of horse thieves while you are at it? Come on, get real. Prison terms I do agree with however.
