    ACORN, Soros Linked to Franken Vote Grab

    Monday, December 22, 2008 9:22 PM

    By: David A. Patten



    Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, who orchestrated the recount that gave Democratic challenger Al Franken a lead some six weeks after incumbent GOP Sen. Norm Coleman appeared to win by 725 votes on Election Day, has extensive ties to both the ACORN organization now under federal investigation for vote fraud, and to MoveOn.org ultra-liberal kingmaker George Soros.


    In 2006, ACORN endorsed Ritchie in his bid to become secretary of state, and Ritchie also received a campaign contribution that year from Soros.


    Indeed, Ritchie has credited his own political career in large part to an obscure, Soros-funded group called the Secretary of State Project (SoS), whose express purpose is to seed state election bureaucracies nationwide with partisan activists -- Ritchie among them -- who are strategically positioned to influence the outcome of close recounts like the one now underway in Minnesota.


    The SoS Web site lauds Ritchie as “arguably the most progressive secretary of state in America,” and states: “Thanks to SoS Project donors, Minnesota’s Mark Ritchie – a true champion for Democracy – was able to defeat a two-term incumbent Republican by less than 5 points. We helped close the gap and make the difference with cable television ads targeting women and seniors.”

    Acorn registered people to vote,if people voted illegally it is the election boards fault not Acorn. Acorn isn't the one on election day checking to make sure people are who they registered as or the ones checking if people can even legally vote. But go right ahead and keep blaming Acorn for all your problems. And I guess Ole Al did a shitting job at voter fraud since he lost!

    Easy enough to check if you doubt it.

    Frankly after Florida 2000 I'm not surprised that the left is looking to elect some sec of state. I be more surprised if they weren't.

    Acorn doesn't register voters, They register one voter 57 times and expect him to vote Democrap 57 times. That is why they are being investigate or have been investigatedd for voter fraud dozens of times since their creation.

    They are being investigated for registration fraud. You can register someone to vote but it is up to the state election board to make sure they don't vote 57 times. If someone votes as Mickey Mouse or even is allowed to be officially registered to vote as Mickey Mouse then it is the state election board that is commiting voter fraud!

    It isn't legal for them to do it Luissa. It isn't legal for you to do it. Basically they simply inundate the Voter registration office with so many names mostly fraudulent that there is no way in hell they can possibly do more than a cursory check of them all.

    But then you probably think its the cops fault when some idiot stoked to the gills on PCP starts believing he's bullet Proof and some poor cop has to shoot him to keep him from hurting some third party who inadvertently crossed the freak's path while he was looking for potential targets.
