Nuradin Abdi, a Somali immigrant and admitted al-Qaida member who was indicted earlier this year as part of a conspiracy to blow up the Columbus Mall, was registered to vote by the left-wing group ACORN, according to the Columbus Dispatch. ACORN has spearheaded an aggressive Democrat vote drive in the battleground states. Iyman Faris, another new Ohio voter added to the rolls by Democrats, is serving a 20-year jail sentence for his role in surveilling potential al-Qaida targets, including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Dispatch said. According to Ohio News Now TV network, Abdi's name was added to the rolls by ACORN employee Kevin Eugene Dooley as part of the group's Project Vote operation. Dooley was indicted earlier this year on two felony election offenses: false election registration and submitting false election signatures to the Ohio Board of Elections. "As far as board of elections is concerned, Abdi is a registered voter," Ohio board of elections director Matt Damschroeder told ONN. Only after Abdi's case was exposed did Ohio officials strike his name from the voting rolls, because of his status as an illegal alien. Faris became a naturalized citizen in 1999 but is not eligible to vote because he's an incarcerated felon. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ LOL - ACORN is certainly an appropriate name for an organization comprised of a bunch on nuts. Democrats are stealing your vote and mine by recruiting illegal voters. This has to stop. There needs to be hard jail time for this type of activity. It is time to send a message to irresponsible activists, regardless of party affiliation, that tampering with the right to vote is a serious issue and will be punished severely.
