Follow the Money

Especially when it's being doled out by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. ACORN. You remember ACORN don't you? They're the people bragging about how they will take the Democrat Party away from Kerry if he is elected.

"But the morning of Nov. 3, we're going to start organizing to take the party away from him,"

Naturally ACORN is claiming they, too, were scammed in this particular voter fraud exposé. But they are uber liberals. And they need to put in their puppet so they have the proper power strings to pull. So how many of those bogus names and addresses reached the local activists who might take advantage of all those "extra" votes--just in case it's a close election.

"Most of the fraud has come from registration drives, where people at grocery stores or on the streets ask you to sign up. 9News has learned many workers have re-registered voters multiple times by changing or making up information about them. 9News has documented 719 cases of potentially fraudulent forms at county election offices show fraudulent names, addresses, social security numbers or dates of birth in Denver, Douglas, Adams, Boulder and Lake counties. Information from other counties is still coming in.

"Some voter registration application forms are completely bogus. Others belong to legitimate voters, who have had one or two facts changed that could affect their registration when they show up at the polls November 2nd. Tom Stanislawski registered to vote six years ago. But this summer, someone signed him up again and changed his party affiliation. "My concern would be I'd walk in November 2nd and be unable to vote," he said.

"Some of the registration drive workers earn $2 per application or about $10 an hour. One woman admitted to forging three people's names on about 40 voter registration applications. Kym Cason says she was helping her boyfriend earn more money from a get-out-the-vote organization called ACORN or Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. ACORN works with low or moderate-income families on housing issues. Cason said her extra registrations earned her boyfriend $50.

"Gerald Obi says workers pressured him to keep registering to vote so they too could earn extra cash. When asked how many times he had registered this year, Obi said, "about 35 times."

Well, well, well. Voter fraud is really plain old ordinary greed. Everyone is just out for a buck. How Republican .

In reality, on election day we could have who knows how many people walking into who knows how many polling places with fraudulent voter information, and casting who knows how many votes.

UPDATE: Guess the NAACP is getting into the act now.
