The ACORN/Obama Voter Registration “Thug Thizzle”

Systemic corruption of our election
process continues. Barack Obama and his old friends at
ACORN and Project Vote are leading the way. This radical
revolution is taking place in your backyard. And as I`ve
reported before
, this

voter-fraud racket
is on your dime.

On Monday, the two liberal groups
announced the wrap-up of

a 21-state voter registration drive
low-income people and minorities in battleground states
including w:st="on">Ohio,
Colorado, w:st="on">Florida, w:st="on">New Mexico and w:st="on">Wisconsin..

What`s wrong with that? For
starters, these two groups are militant partisan outfits
purporting to engage in nonpartisan civic activity. And
their campaign comes amid an avalanche of fresh

allegations involving ACORN in many of
those same key states.

On Tuesday,

state officials

Las Vegas
office after election
authorities accused the group of submitting multiple
voter registrations with fake and duplicate names.

ACORN, which receives 40 percent of
its revenues from American taxpayers to pursue an

welfare-state agenda
, has already helped register
over 1.27 million people nationwide. The rest of their
funding comes from left-wing heavyweights like

George Soros
and the
Democracy Alliance.

Project Vote, a 501(c)(3)
organization, was founded by left-wing lawyer Sandy
Newman to register voters in welfare offices and
unemployment lines with the explicit goal of turning
back the Reagan revolution.

The two groups are inextricably
linked—and at their nexus is

Barack Obama.

In 1992, Newman

hired Obama
to lead Project Vote efforts in w:st="on">Illinois. The w:st="on">Illinois drive`s motto:

"It`s a Power Thing."

As previously noted in this column
("The ACORN Obama
June 25, 2008
), Obama also trained ACORN
members in w:st="on">Chicago. In turn, ACORN volunteers worked on
his Illinois
campaigns and ACORN`s PAC endorsed his primary bid with
full backing and muscle.

Despite his adamant denials of any
association with the group (his Fight the Smears website
now claims "Barack Obama
never organized with ACORN";
), Obama`s political
DNA is encoded with the ACORN agenda.

The Obama campaign`s
"Vote for Change"
registration drive, running parallel to ACORN/Project
Vote, is an all-out scramble to scrape up every last
unregistered voter sympathetic to Obama`s big-government
vision. "Our volume," Obama campaign manager David Plouffe

bragged of the voter-registration program,

"will be

Quantity over quality. It`s the
ACORN way.

In addition to the
Las Vegas
raid, fraud allegations
keep piling up:

  • w:st="on">Lake County, Ind.,
    election officials this month rejected a large
    portion of the 5,000 registration forms ACORN turned
    in after conducting registration drives in the area
    all summer. Some vote canvassers had pulled names
    and addresses from telephone books and forged
    signatures. According to local reports,
    numbers of voter registration forms bore signatures
    all in the same apparent handwriting style"

    the organization`s canvassers broke rules to meet
    ACORN-set voter registration quotas to get paid."

    The fake registrants included dead people and
    underage kids.

On a conference call yesterday, GOP
officials noted that up to 11,000 voter applications
were no good—tying up election officials and
jeopardizing the voting rights of untold victims whose

identities may have been stolen.

Election officials had flagged
ACORN`s negligent practices several months ago, but it
may be too late: In Orange, Broward and Miami-Dade
counties, ACORN has signed up 135,000 new voters, nearly
60 percent of them registered as Democrats that
constitute a fifth of all new voters in that region.

  • In w:st="on">Ohio, large numbers of homeless people
    received free van and bus rides to register. Shelby
    Holliday, a reporter for, filmed ACORN
    shuttling prospects to the polls. [See

    video here
    .] She told me she spoke with one
    homeless woman who told her ACORN
    "told her who
    to vote for if she wanted a `better life,` and told
    her not to worry about jury duty (one of the reasons
    this homeless woman didn`t want to register) because
    the government probably wouldn`t be able to track
    her down. She was registering with a temporary

Holliday interviewed another
homeless man targeted by the registration drive who

that he was voting for Obama because
"I want him to do
his thang. You know, do his thug thizzle."

"Thug thizzle"
is street
for performing your

trademark move
. Obama and ACORN have practiced their
thug thizzle together for years: organizing an
ever-expanding community of

ineligible and marginal
voters to expand the
Democratic power base. Rules be damned.
