ObamaGate: Obama Associated With Organization Subpoenaed for Voter Registration Impropriety

On October 4, we reported on the association between Obama and William Ayers. We were not the first, and referenced articles from such publications as the Wall Street Journal. In fact, Hillary Clinton had brought up the issue as problematic during the Democratic Primary.

At the time, we dismissed the relationship as little more than an indication that Obama was more radical than he presents himself.

If you read this article, it will give you a better understanding of who Ayers is and how Obama interacted with him.

Their relationship in an organization named the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) has strong implications regarding Obama’s ideology. CAC was formed for a good purpose. It was supposed to distribute monies from the Annenberg Foundation for funding educational programs. Instead, the board, including Obama and Ayers, funneled monies to radical organizations. In order to get access to funds, schools had to associate themselves with the radical organizations and align with their causes. Students and programs based on scholarship merit were summarily rejected. The results of a study demonstrated that, despite all the money spent (tens of millions of dollars), the program was completely ineffective from an education standpoint.

It was not, however, ineffective at supporting the radical organizations to which it funneled its funds. One of the organizations was the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

ACORN has turned out to be more of a radical organization than we originally thought. Apparently, offices of ACORN have been raided by authorities for attempting to manipulate voter registration. ACORN members were attempting to influence Democratic voters to register more than once. Some apparently had registered as many as 72 times. The US slogan is “One Person, One Vote”. Apparently ACORN’s slogan is One Democrat, As Many Votes as We Can Get.

According to the New York Post, ACORN, whose political wing has endorsed Barack Obama, relentlessly pursued Democratic voters to register multiple times. Subpoenas have been ordered in an investigation run by election officials.

The New York Post Article states when speaking of several voters that were subpoenaed, Christopher Barkley, Lateala Goins and Freddie Johnson:

Barkley is one of at least three people who have been subpoenaed by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections as part of a wider inquiry into possible voter fraud by ACORN. The group seeks to register low-income voters, who skew overwhelmingly Democratic.

“You can tell them you’re registered as many times as you want – they do not care,” said Lateala Goins, 21, who was subpoenaed.

“They will follow you to the buses, they will follow you home, it does not matter,” she told The Post.

She added that she never put down an address on any of the registration forms, just her name.

A third subpoenaed voter, Freddie Johnson, 19, filled out registration cards 72 times over 18 months, officials said.

“It feeds the public perception that there could be [fraud], and that makes the pillars fall down,” said local Board of Elections President Jeff Hastings.

According to this CBS Market Watch article:

“Thousands of allegedly fake voter registrations by a nationwide organization are being investigated. At least nine states are reviewing voter paperwork, and Allegheny County police are looking into similar accusations.”

Apparently, according to this article, the initial probes were launched in Cleveland against ACORN in August.

Obama and Ayers, during their time at CAC, filtered millions to ACORN. This impropriety is accentuated by the fact that ACORN publicly endorsed Obama for President and was specifically targeting Democratic voters in their attempt to fraudulently garner more Democratic votes in key states.

At this time, there is no direct association between these criminal activities and Obama himself, but it does bring prior voter tallies in some states into question. We consider this a critical issue in the ongoing saga of Obama, Ayers, CAC and ACORN, and we will do our best to keep you abreast of anything we find.

    Let me ask you liberal retards in denial a question. If McCain had any affiliation at all, even in Fantasyland at Disneyworld, with any impropriety, you would be dumping all over him.

    Obama associates with a criminal organization that gets subpoenaed, has local democrats saying to the news media they registered up to 72 times, and that is now facing charges, and all you can say is “have they been charged?”.

    You can’t be that stupid, honestly. Tell me you don’t qualify to vote because your IQ is too low.

  2. One thing is voter fraud another registration fraud. ACORN has not been charged with anything!!! This is just a distraction by the GOP. Republicans are desperate because this time is going to be very thought to steal the election like they did in 2004 and 2004.

    And what charges are bogus? You do see ACORN being raided don’t you? You did actually read the news that they falsified thousands of voter registrations right? You do know that ACORN had tons of money sent their way by Obama right?

    Yup, but apparently, they were chasing down every potential Democrat, homeless person, dog, cat, rat, and whatever else they hope could vote dozens of times even though they KNEW they were already registered. Can you spell S-U-B-P-O-E-N-A??? This is how third world countries operate, not America.

    It is too bad ACORN misrepresents themselves. They have the potential to do a lot of good, but the only grass in in the grass roots of that organization is the grass you are smoking if you think they are anything but a radical organization with a radical agenda filtering money for radical causes and committing violations of voting laws.

    By the way, ACORN members, say hi to the police as they walk into your offices. Kisses.

    OBAMA/BIDEN 08-12!

    Yes, with Democrats registering up to 72x per voter, it is even more important to get out and vote if Republican or Independent!

    If you are Democrat, remember to Contact ACORN, so you can VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN.

  6. ACORN is the nation”s largest grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people with over 400,000 member families organized into more than 1,200 neighborhood chapters in 110 cities across the country. Since 1970, ACORN has been building community organizations that are committed to social and economic justice, and won victories on thousands of issues of concern to our members, through direct action, negotiation, legislative advocacy and voter participation. ACORN helps those who have historically been locked out become powerful players in our democratic system.

    FYI – ACORN is REQUIRED by law to turn in every registration form they receive. They go through them and if they can’t verify the person they flag it and let the election officials know. Also, just because they receive a fraudulent registration form doesn’t mean it turns into a fraudulent vote. Voter fraud has been investigated and is extremely low. One report shows only 18 cases. This is a tactic used by the G.O.P. to distract voters while they engage in voter caging and voter suppression.

  7. Their campaigns in the last few days have been filled with hatred and racism….Are we back in the 1950’s???
    This is ridiculous…I also have a muslim name, but not muslim…from what Palin and Mccain are instigating is that I am also associated with terrorists(since my name is muslim looking)…. This is bull sh#t!! I was born with my last name!!!!!! I have nothing to do with terrorism!!!! Right now, I am fearing for MY LIFE that one of the people at the Repub’s campaign is going to kill me if I they know I have a muslim sounding name!!! What has this world come to???? For the 1st time in my life I now know what racism means! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HATRED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and this is what Mccain/Palin are hyping thier crowds with…!!!!

    That is not what we want for other nations to see America….A nation of RACISTS!! Just when you think that racism was going down, ‘they’ have to hype it up again….
