Coming on the heels of yesterday's Voter Fraud Taskforce raid on Nevada's ACORN headquarters for voter fraud, I've just heard that investigations are occurring in my own state, Indiana , and seven other states as well. Over half of the thousands of voter registrations turned in by ACORN here in Indiana are fraudulent. It isn't even subtle fraud; in Las Vegas, they registered the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys . You were supposed to be registering disenfranchised minorities, ACORN- Tony Romo isn't a disenfranchised minority. And no, this isn't "alleged" fraud; some of those arrested previously have already pled guilty.
Damn ACORN! How dare they! It doesn't matter how big Obama's landslide is if the results can't be certified. With Ohio's idiotic register-and-vote-on-the-spot-with-no-background-check rules, there's no possibility they'll sort it out by election day- the lawsuit preventing certification pending investigation is a certainty. Here in Indiana, where we cut off registration a month before the election, we have a bare chance of a clean election. but there'll probably still be enough doubts for a lawsuit. As to the other battleground states where ACORN HQ's are being raided or investigated even as I write, I don't know, but it's becoming more likely every day that the election will be carried out in the Supreme Court, or even the House of Representatives. Damn it, it was embarrassing enough to have UN observers for the elections four years ago; it's utterly humiliating to realize we might actually need them this time.
My only consolation is that Governor Palin is proved wrong once again- it seems some community organizers will be legally responsible after all.
UPDATE: Even as I was writing, I received an interesting email. Yesterday's Indianapolis Star reported that Marion County (Indianapolis) had 677, 401 registered voters. STATS Indiana reports that we have 644,197 residents in Marion County over the age of 18. My, we Hoosiers are civic minded... we've registered 105% of our population! Best total in the country! ...I hope.
