Former Gov. James E. McGreevey (missing D) owes his wife some alimony after cheating on her with his gay lover whom he also gave an undeserved state job.

Those D's are still missing when a Democrat is involved.

Cheating on somebody and raping somebody are two different levels.

Lying and then causing death is yet another level.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

BREAKING: CA GOP Vote Registration Contractor Arrested for Registration Fraud, Perjury

Quote:
This just in as Brad is headed over to the FOXNews studios. Yesterday the Los Angeles Times reported on the Republican voter registration outfit who had allegedly been illegally changing thousands of registrations from Democratic to Republican.

Last night the head of that GOP backed group, Mark Anthony Jacoby of Young Political Majors (YPM), was arrested by the California State Election Fraud Taskforce and Oxnard, CA Police.

According to CA SoS Debra Bowen's press release, Jacoby himself had committed voter registration fraud and perjury by lying on his own voter registration form. (That's similar to what Ann Coulter did, though she not only committed felony voter registration fraud, she also committed actual voter fraud, as well, even though such fraud is exceedingly rare.)

And this idiot was doing this in California, a state the democrats have basically locked up. The stupidity of these people never ceases to amaze me.

It's amazing how the Republicans thrash about like kindergarten kids over Acorn as if only the other side does an wrong and then one of their own is actually arrested for the same thing and they raise a fuss if anybody even mentions it.

Just another smoke screen so that the failings of the Repugs hopefully go unnoticed.

Problem is, the Repugs will try to steal this election as they did the last two, and will try to make it look like the Dems were the bad ones.

I wonder if Bachmann wants to investigate this character to see if he is pro or anti Amerika.

unless I've missed something, ACORN has been accused of allowing people to sign fake names on the registration sheets (which they are required to do), then flagging those fake applications, and then turning those applications in, where they will hopefully be filtered out.

YPM told people they were signing petitions when in fact they were changing their voter registration from Dem to Rep.

In fact, if one where to do something outlandish like, I dunno, look at the actual pattern of convictions for voting fraud, as opposed to the pattern of accusations, one would be obliged to note that, despite the Bush Justice Department making Democratic "voter fraud" job one, there have been no significant findings of systemic fraud.

I mean, they were firing federal prosecutors that were insufficiently zealous on this count, so it certainly wasn't for lack of trying. The current FBI probe into ACORN appears to be more of the same.

Even if we credit each and every conviction the Republicans have come up with as an incidence of "voter fraud", we're talking about a handful of illicit votes, nationwide, over a four year period.

Meanwhile, Republican voter suppression campaigns have demonstrably robbed tens of thousands of citizens of their voting rights. That's a fact.

So there's a shocker: another beloved cornerstone of the right's world view built on overt lies and aggressive dishonesty.

Actually, and maybe this is for another thread, are there any central ideas in winger land that aren't built on overt lies and aggressive dishonesty, at this point? Serious question.

ACRON employees fill out the fakes too. They submit thousands of fakes across many states, conspiracy. There's already votes in Ohio using faked registrations. But what to do with thousands of fakes? I guess we'll find out if a swing state is close.


This is all so childish. Their accusations of fraud are a distraction but our accusations of fraud are real.

It's like you guys want to pull a Palin, "Well gosh darn it don't ya know ACORN was snookered by some people and golly they have to submit thousands and thousands of faked registrations because jeepers creepers that's the law. Just fallowin' the law."

Yep, that's how it's done: wildly inflated allegations without any evidence passed around amongst the faithful like treasured heirlooms.

Because convictions are no more convincing that allegations.

If it's clear and widespread than I'm sure you can provide us with links that explain how sending in flagged problem registrations, as required by law, is going to influence the election.

The point is to influence the election, right? Otherwise "voter fraud" is sort of pointless.

So, just provide some evidence.

Oh I have many times. You guys are just so sold in the lie that ACORN is "just doin' their job" when they fake and submit thousands of registrations.

Read here here here here here here (just to link to some). You just have to read news and pay attention. The mains (tankers) are suppressing this story as much as they can.


What makes you think ACORN flags all their fakes? Are they going to cooperate with the FBI to find out who signed all these? Who knows and who cares, Obama will sink any real investigation.

Plus I'll add the time honored .... "If the republicans had done this you guys would be enraged."

Yes, those are links to stories that explain that among the millions of voter registrations ACORN has submitted, some thousands have been found to be fake.

We know that, by law, ACORN is obliged to submit every registration is receives. We know that ACORN pays people modestly, to get registrations, so clearly some of those people have defrauded ACRON by not doing their job.

Since you've implicitly acknowledged that ACORN has been, in fact, flagging "problem" registrations, I guess I'm left to assume that the "scandal" looks like this:

ACORN flags some, but not all, bogus registrations, so that some fraction of these bogus registrations might then..... do what? Mickey Mouse isn't going to get to vote. "John Q. Citizen" isn't going to get to vote. People don't get to vote multiple times.

So how does this scam work, exactly?

Right, that's the central point. The only possible point of a "scam" is to get Obama elected. The only way to do that is to get more votes for him, or fewer votes for McCain.

That being the case, the least effective way to achieve such an end is to turn in a bunch of fraudulent registrations. Plain old polling place standards make it very unlikely that a fraudulent registration turns into a fraudulent vote.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party has made voter disenfranchisement (the "fewer votes for the other guy" option) a central part of their electoral strategy. Compared to the tens of thousands of voters that will actually not be allowed to vote, for no better reason than their middle initial on their registration doesn't match a DMV record or they moved to a new house recently or a clerk mis-entered some information, ACORN are pikers. Amateurs.

But of course, we already know all this because the liberal media has been so reluctant to touch the ACORN story and have been giving a lot of time to Republican disenfranchisement schemes.

Why does it even matter? But since you ask ... Absentee ballots, fake voters showing up, provisional ballots, election day injunctions for [insert bullshit here], bogus charges of voter suppression, create chaos in elections office to facilitate other illegal efforts.


ACORN did the exact same thing in different states nation wide. This is not an accident or "gosh we were taken by dishonest people". It's a conspiracy plain and simple. Good thing they have noncritical supports to run interference for them.

Let's say I'm some smuch looking for a minimum wage temporary job. And let's say I get hired as a temp by ACORN to go out and get as many new registrants as I can. You know the drill? Stand outside the grocery stores and banks.

But let's say ACORN says they'll pay me by the name. At let's say I'm a real lazy bastard. What's to stop me from opening the phone book and jotting down as many names and addresses as I can? What to stop me from making up names? I just want to get paid, right? I just want to work as little as possible.

THAT'S how Acorn got screwed. And it happens all the time. And it happens with EVERY company that registers voters. Period. And they are required by law to turn in every registration sheet and flag the ones they believe are phony.

What's so hard to understand about all of this? Seriously?

Hate You Can Believe In: ACORN Deluged with Threatening and Racist Voicemails and Emails

Quote:
Its bad enough that the employees of ACORN have had to endure days of baseless and outlandish attacks by John McCain and the RNC. But after McCain outrageously claimed before a national audience on Wednesday night that ACORN was maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy, the group came under attack, literally. In the following days, ACORNs Boston and Seattle offices were vandalized and at least one employee received a death threat.

And for nearly two weeks, ACORN offices across the nation have been subjected to an onslaught of racist and threatening voicemails and emails. We have secured copies of some of the most disturbing and offensive messages and have reproduced them below in order to show the very real consequences of the Right Wings overheated and misplaced voter fraud rhetoric.

Warning: the emails and voicemails below are highly explicit and have only been edited to remove personally identifying information. Please also note that, where relevant, the proper authorities have been notified.
