The Truth About ACORN

Exactly. Thank you.

This video illustrates why McCain said in 2006 that these people were part of "what makes America special."

Paul Weyrich's rhetoric is frightening.

I've only been caught speeding twice...

Ah, but who was in the car with you?

And did you have your license and registration??

And just where were you headed? Cause that's real important, ya know.

I've only been caught speeding twice...

Have a ballot box in the car either of those times?

And George W. Bush only got caught DUI once. Laura only got caught killing a guy with her car one time. What's your point?

High voter turn out scares the living shit out of conservatives. They don't really have much use for democracy or the Constitution.

It makes perfect sense that the GOP is scared of minority voters because why the hell would a minority vote for a conservative? Liberalism is about change and conservative is about keeping things the way they are.

Its sort of why people TYPICALLY become more conservative as they get older. It's because when they wanted change when they were younger and now have it, they don't want to lose it and therefore become more conservative.

The problem for minorities is they never really have anything to begin with, which is why they almost always vote for change. They want power, choices, benefits, and a voice that usually only the majority enjoy.

They're under investigation by the FBI.

One doesn't merely have to show up to vote under all registered names. If as the ACORN worker in the video suggests, these fake vote registrations make it into the pool by getting past the validation process, they could be used in a computer fraud as we've seen before.

Also, FYI, they get about 40% of their funding from federal money (our tax payer dollars!) and were about to receive a portion from the bailout. House Republicans succeeded in removing a housing slush-fund from the recent economic rescue plan.

This was a good first win against an organization that for decades has promoted the housing policies that pushed our economy to the brink forcing banks through affordable housing programs to give mortgages to people who under normal circumstances would not qualify for such loans.

calli, that you?

Bullshit.

Try that again: Bullshit.

They don't receive federal funds for registering voters or their advocacy work.

And as Tim said the economic claims are complete bullshit.

Capitalism works in the same way as physics. Poor people don't have a money to upset an economy full of rich people.

It was hourly paid employees on the street who ha quotas to fill. Admittedly high quotas. They realized all they had to do was give their bosses registration forms and it would fill the quota, they would get paid, and life would go on. So, they filled out false registrations with false names and information. These counted as registrations, none of these false people voted. It was employees scamming their bosses, not ACORN scamming democracy period.
