Teenager: I Registered To Vote 73 Times
Ohio ACORN Lands In Hot Water

POSTED: 2:01 pm CDT October 13, 2008
UPDATED: 2:31 pm CDT October 13, 2008


A Cleveland teenager who claims he registered to vote 73 times over a five-month period has set of alarm bells among election officials in Ohio's most populous county.

Compare Candidates





The bipartisan Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in Cleveland voted unanimously Monday to ask Prosecutor Bill Mason to investigate multiple registrations by four people, including 19-year-old Freddie Johnson.

All four said they signed forms at the behest of a community organizing group, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform, known as ACORN.

Johnson said he was trying to help paid ACORN solicitors collect signed registrations. He said he has not voted, and said he filled out the cards because he was given cigarettes and about $20.

ACORN's Ohio state director, Katy Gall, said ACORN is cooperating with the investigation and would fire anyone soliciting duplicate registrations. He also pointed out that no fraud was committed because the teen had not cast a vote.

The fracas is the latest round in a battle over ACORN's impact on voter registration this year. The group says it has signed up 1.3 million poor and working-class voters in a mass registration drive in 18 states this year.

In Pennsylavania, the district attorney for the Pittsburgh area is investigating possible forgery and other irregularities on voter registration forms turned in by ACORN.

Mike Manko, a spokesman for the Allegheny County district attorney, said fewer than 100 registration forms were apparently forged or otherwise illegitimate.

ACORN issued a statement Friday dismissing the fraud allegations in Pennsylvania as an attempt by a relatively small group of political operatives "to orchestrate hysteria about 'voter fraud.'"

Nevada state investigators raided ACORN's Las Vegas headquarters last week, seizing documents and computer data.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain has called for a federal investigation into ACORN. His campaign manager said that ACORN's connections to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama's connections to ACORN should be investigated.

ACORN accused Republicans of playing dirty politics and of trying to keep America's less fortunate voters, who tend to be Democrats, from the polls on Nov. 4.

Obama and two other lawyers in 1995 represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois to make voter registration easier. During this year's primary, Obama hired a firm with ties to the group for a massive get-out-the-vote effort.

ACORN executive director Michael Slater said that most wrongdoing is discovered by the group itself, when employees examine registration cards submitted from the field.

Problem cards are flagged and turned over to local election officials, Slater said. Most states, he added, require that every collected card be given to voting jurisdictions.

The surge in new voters helped propel Obama to his party's presidential nomination, and it may carry over to the general election -- 9 million newly registered voters who are overwhelmingly Democratic could add up to a big victory on Election Day.

In states where registration is recorded by party, including eight key states that could decide the election, voters have signed up Democratic in the past six months by a margin of nearly 4-1.

However, simply registering voters, even when the numbers are skewed so heavily toward one party, is no guarantee of success.

Historically, voter turnout among new registrants has been low. And while candidates have months to run registration drives, they have only a tiny window -- several days during early balloting, just hours on Election Day -- to get out the vote.

Still, an Associated Press analysis of registration data found that if the millions of newly registered voters turn out at the same rate as in 2004 and cast ballots with their declared party of choice, Obama could have the votes he needs to wrest several battleground states away from the Republican Party and its nominee, Sen. John McCain.

I know there have been reports around here that Acorn is under investigation......1st I hope its true , 2nd I hope they dont sweep it under the rug until after the election 3rd I'd love to see the media follow up on these nut (pun intended) jobs so the whole country can see what a fraud nobama is.
 
I hope he goes to jail....

the same way I hope the Massachusetts residents that went to N.H. to cast votes earlier this year for Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted.

Boyzoi, what does this have to do with Obama being a fraud ?

There's reports of republican (officials) casting votes of dead people and other illegal acts in practically every election (local),
Do you believe Obama himself sent this kid to do what he did ?

Are we this desperate that we blame everything on Obama ?
How about the weather ?

I hate to see when people draw for straws while sinking.

I'm sure your right on the acorn being rotton. If anybody thinks either campaign isn;t rotten their fooling theirsel ftoo. I think they should just trash those fraudulent registrations and any that look skeptic. Whoever wins i want them to win cause they won, not from cheating.

Since the primaries? That was only a few months ago.

Obama's substantial activity with ACORN is well-documented. Here he is at a rally, promising to hold some planning meetings with ACORN and various community groups if he wins the election - but before he takes office!

ACORN has a lot of responsibility for the Community Reinvestment Act, and Clinton-era changes to it that turned it into a powder keg once interest rates were stupidly dropped by Bush. Now it's trying to rig the election so that it can continue the path of destruction.

It's not really surprising whatsoever that ACORN has engaged in rampant fraud - fraud against itself and the system - to get thousands of nonexistent voters registered in swing states. They can't show up to the polls, but they can definitely vote absentee, and also be an angle to make false accusations of fraud when voter turnout is especially low (because many of the voters don't actually exist). This is in keeping with the pattern of corruption established by Obama in his long tawdry history of hanging around terrorists and extremists. If this were with a GOP candidate, it would be blamed on a system rigged by Republicans.

That must of been what Bush used in 2000 down in florida to beat Gore
What helped Bush against Gore in Florida were a bunch of incompetent people who couldn't use a voting machine, coupled with that tool Katherine Harris. She succeeded in making sure that what had started out as a problem would result in becoming a longstanding partisan divide. It's a good thing she didn't win in 2006.

Flagrant voter registration fraud committed on a mass scale weeks ahead of time was not part of the equation in Florida. The problems that did happen weren't part of a comprehensive effort. This fraud has been orchestrated by rank-and-file ACORN members. It is a subversive organization that helped to cause the financial crisis that we are now in, has taken millions of dollars in taxpayer dollars to fund its disgusting activities, and seeks to get a hoof or two in the door when Obama becomes President.

An Obama presidency will make Clinton & Bush combined look like a couple of choirboys. I'm going to make sure that nothing is left to the imagination in terms of what he's wheeling and dealing.

HEADLINE: 2002 GOP phone jamming in NH leads to new charges =
BYLINE: By DAVID SHARP, Associated Press Writer =
PAPER: AP =

.<p>(10-14) 13:59 PDT Portland, Maine (AP) --</p>
<p>A former Republican official accused of taking part in a plot to jam Democratic phone lines in New Hampshire on Election Day 2002 is facing new charges.</p>
<p>James Tobin was indicted by a federal grand jury in Portland on two counts of making false statements about the incident to an FBI agent. His earlier conviction on telephone harassment charges was overturned, but prosecutors are appealing.</p>
<p>Tobin, 48, of Bangor, was accused of helping to arrange more than 800 hang-up calls that jammed get-out-the-vote phone lines set up by the New Hampshire Democratic Party and a local firefighters' union on Election Day six years ago.</p>
<p>Republican Rep. John Sununu defeated then-Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, in a close Senate race that day. He is now running for re-election with Shaheen as his challenger, and the race is again close.</p>
<p>The new indictment, dated Oct. 9, alleges that Tobin lied to FBI investigators during an interview in Maine. Tobin told them another GOP official, Charles McGee, had the idea to contact an aggressive telemarketer, Allen Raymond, for help in the 2002 election. The indictment said using Raymond was really Tobin's idea.</p>
<p>McGee and Raymond both pleaded guilty in the phone-jamming scheme and testified against Tobin. The jamming also led to a lawsuit that was settled with Republicans paying the Democrats $135,000.</p>
<p>Tobin and his lawyers did not immediately respond to telephone messages seeking comment Tuesday. The new charges carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a fine of $250,000.</p>
<p>Sununu, who has denied knowledge of the 2002 scheme, did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment Tuesday.</p>
<p>At the time of the 2002 election, Tobin was a top regional official with the Republican National Committee.</p>
<p>Phone records introduced at Tobin's 2005 trial in federal court in New Hampshire show he made two dozen calls to the White House political office within three days around Election Day as the jamming operation was finalized, carried out and abruptly shut down.</p>
<p>Tobin was sentenced to 10 months in prison on charges of telephone harassment. But the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston ruled last year that the telephone harassment statute "is not a close fit" for what Tobin did. The appeals court sent the case back to the lower court, which later threw out the conviction entirely. Prosecutors are appealing the ruling; a hearing is set for Nov. 3 in Boston.</p>
.....so I'm blaming the entire Republican party and their masters for what these individuals did.

not one of the threads you pasted here has anything to do with McCain........and if they do you left him out.
he is not mentioned nor refered to in any!!
the point was made of ACORN and Nobama because of his affiliation with them and with Wright, Aires and Resko and whomever else. THATS THE CONNECTION, NOBAMA had and still has AFFILITATION with them (ACORN) and they are now being investigated across the country for voter fraud....you need a crayon to connect the dots????.....so maybe I should have jsut said hes a bald-faced liar and not a fraud because he just keeps saying no no no I dont know them, they never did that when I knew them oops I mean I dont know them.... !!!!!!!!!!
now if you want to use the HUGE brush you just used Im sure we can drag in more Dems.....but I want everyone to know about nobama since hes running for Pres.

Well Obama told what has been happening with the acorn thing last night in the debate. These people that are out on the streets that are supposed to be finding new voters are just filling out the papers and making them up. Thats not his fault. Those employees or volunteers of Acorn should be removed and all applications that have been filled out by one of them should be deleted. Obama doesnt need fraudulent voters to win this election. IT"S OVER ANYWAYS. America has made up their mind based on the issues and based on the polls. Virginia is now going to go for Obama for the first time in along time. People are fed up with the Bush Mccain policy's of the last eight years. Al Gore should have one Tennessee but my state is very conservative and was blinded by the moral issues and think you can't be a christian and vote democrat. Its the most retarded uneducated thing in the world. They also thought he was going to take our guns away and all that mess. Its the same old republican story line every election. Its all they got to run on. It worked with Gore and kerry. It will work again with mcain in this state again.
