    ABC News: McCain ACORN Fears Overblown: Experts


    "There's no evidence that any of these invalid registrations lead to any invalid votes," said David Becker, project director of the "Make Voting Work" initiative for the Pew Charitable Trusts.

    Becker should know: he was a lawyer for the Bush administration until 2005, in the Justice Department's voting rights section, which was part of the administration's aggressive anti-vote-fraud effort.

    "The Justice Department really made prosecution of voter fraud of this sort a big priority in the first half of this decade, and they really didn't come up with anything," he said.

    That's because there was a cover up and you know it.

    "We're chasing these ghosts of voter fraud, like chickens without a head," said Lorraine Minnite, a political science professor at Barnard College in New York who has researched voter fraud and fraud claims for most of the past decade. "I think it's completely overblown, I think it's meant to be a distraction."

    "This stuff does not threaten the outcome of the election," said Minnite. "How many illegal ballots have been cast by people who are fraudulently registered to vote? By my count, it's zero. I just don't know of any, I've been looking for years for this stuff."

    What cover up? How can I go in and vote as Mickey Mouse? Sounds more like a joke than a conspiracy.

    And you guys called us conspiracy theorists because we said Bush lied us into Iraq for money, so I don't think you are a good judge of this.

    Isn't that why you continue to say Bush didn't steal the last two elections? We have a ton of evidence and irregularities that suggest he did but you refuse to believe.

    The cover up is this is designed to scare people away from getting registered.

    Republicans do better when the turnout is low.

    They dont want more voters participating

    Tell me how people are "scared" by meeting the voter registration requirements?

    And yes, Republicans do better when we don't have the left committing voter fraud all over the place.
