As Yid with Lid writes, “Where ACORN goes, fraud follows.”
Seven Pittsburgh-area ACORN workers were charged with falsifying voter registration forms, with six accused of doing so to meet the group’s alleged quota system before last year’s general election.
District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. said he’s hoping the workers charged Thursday will help authorities determine whether Allegheny County ACORN officials will be charged with requiring the illegal quotas or otherwise directing that voter registrations be faked.
“You should consider the investigation as ongoing,” Zappala said.
ACORN is under investigation for various crimes in 12 different states now. The have a history of voter fraud all across America. (For a great history of ACORN, read Gateway Pundit’s Complete Guide to ACORN Voter Fraud. It was written in October 2008. I’m guessing another one will be needed soon.)
Over the years, ACORN has raked in at least $53 billion in the last 15 years. That’s around $3.53 billion a year. Despite the investigations, despite the history, ACORN stands to get another $8 billion, thanks to the Stimulus Plan:
At least $53 million in federal funds have gone to ACORN activists since 1994, and the controversial group could get up to $8.5 billion more tax dollars despite being under investigation for voter registration fraud in a dozen states.
The economic stimulus bill enacted in February contains $3 billion that the non-profit activist group known more formally as the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now could receive, and 2010 federal budget contains another $5.5 billion that could also find its way into the group’s coffers.
And President Obama is having the group help with the census. They are charged with recruiting 1.4 million volunteers.
Also, RightSoup.com is reporting that they are painting each house with GPS equipment “for marking/mapping purposes; without your consent – and if you are not home – without your knowledge.”
Just what I want, a bunch of ACORN volunteers coming by my house to get my coordinates, at my expense.
