ACORN's Voter Fraud- by aihaozhe2


									The right wing spin is that the organization called ACORN has registered many
thousands of fake people who supposedly will somehow make real votes for
Obama/Biden this fall.

They are telling this lie in hopes of changing the subject from the economy and in
hopes of continuing their ridiculous low road "guilt by association" slime ball attacks
on Barack Obama.

The truth is that ACORN is a group which tries to register real people (poor people) to
vote. And the truth is this what the Republicans do not like. They know a majority of
the over one million people that ACORN has registered to vote this year will be
voting for Democrats. They know that a few fake registrations (which do ACORN
absolutely no good, I'll get to that in a moment) are not a real issue.

They make an issue out of it as a diversion from the real issues facing Americans.
They also make an issue out of it in hopes of riling up their mostly ignorant base (who
actually buys this crap without questioning the logic of it all.) They make an issue out
of it to undermine what appears to be more and more likely an Obama victory this
November 4th. They make an issue out of it to divert attention away from the real
vote fraud which is done almost entirely on behalf of the Republicans. That real voter
fraud isn't creating fake voter registrations (which as I'll get to soon are completely
worthless) but in voter caging and voter suppression. You see voter caging and voter
suppression do not add fake votes for the Republicans, but they do take away real
votes from the Democrats.

Fake voter registrations are a problem for ACORN but they are not something that
ACORN wants. Quite the opposite. Fake voter registrations are created by some of
their lazier less scrupulous workers who don't bother to actually register voters but
instead just fill out fake voter registration forms. Why do they do this? A very simple
reason and it has nothing to do with stealing an election: They want to be paid without
doing their work.

These fake voter registrations are a waste of time and money for ACORN precisely
because they do not represent real people. And guess what; fake people don't actually
vote! That's what's so insane about this so called "voter fraud." It actually has
absolutely nothing to do with fake votes being cast. No fake votes are cast because of
these types of fake registrations. The GOP should in fact love that this happens
because it simply wastes ACORNS time and money. That's time and money that could
be spent registering real poor people that actually could vote!

ACORN actually makes an effort to mark all suspicious voter registrations before
they send them to the election boards. The election boards then throw out the
registrations that they cannot verify as being from real people. So the actual
registrations that are made do not include these fake registrations.
Hopefully you are a logical person and you can now see what's going on here. This is
just another dishonest attempt by the right wingers to change the subject from the real
issues and to smear their opponents with lies. It's disgusting. It's exactly the kind of
politics America has had enough of. And it's exactly the kind of politics that
McCain/Palin want to give us for another four years.
