    Well fuck.

    A couple of ACORN workers leaned too far into a rich county and enough outrage was "generated" to fuel 45 missions to Pluto. But shit like this helped secure a gazilion votes in 2004 and looks to be good for a gazillion more in 2012.

    And it'll be the biggest non-story of 2012.

    Again, FUCK.

    Important note. Accorn wasn't "caught" they reported the discrepancies themselves.

    Acorn came into existence because of the Republican voter purges of 2004. To help get those who lost their rights to vote, ACORN got those voters reregistered. They were vilified by the right for doing so.

    As far as Ohio article , I understand the outrage that will follow, but it seems to me that the change is simply who is holding the pen. Before the election official fills it out, but now the voter is in charge of the pen. No requirements are changed. No more ID is required. Just the person writing is different. Am I reading that right?

    But that, places the burden is on the voter, not anyone else. That's not the way it's supposed to be. It's the job of the polling places, not to cast judgement upon the voter. They're to collect the votes, and make sure they're to be counted.

    I don't mean to be rude and maybe I just don't understand what you're trying to say, but when you say "cast judgment" what do you mean? Do you just mean, "cast judgment" as in the poll workers shouldn't decide whether or not the person filled out the form correctly? Hypothetically, assume the law said the voter fills out the form, who is to decide whether the form is filled out correctly and counted?

    "They're to collect eh votes, and make sure they're to be counted"--> So, who is to assess whether a vote should not be counted (ex. bad information, incorrect information, fraud, etc.). I'm not saying it's likely to occur, but shouldn't someone check the information and assess whether the ballot meets the requirements of the law?

    I agree the law says the election official shall record the information, but again, is this "issue" really boiling down to one person filling out a form versus another? Throwing the word "burden" makes it sound so much more devious than I read it to be. Again, the "burden" is filling out information. Just symantically, is it a "burden" that I fill out forms at DMV and bring the ID with me? It's not a "burden," it's just a system and I don't see how this is devious unless so many people cannot fill out their own information properly (i.e, maybe not so smart people) and b/c they can't fill out their social for example, their vote might not count.

    Isn't it more insane to say that people can't fill out forms properly (with personal information) and that could sway a national election?

    Acorn was alive, well and defrauding the vote just 4 years ago. Google is your friend.

    You've been on the site since 2007 and came nowhere near this forum until HM began getting his ass handed to him, so where were you in 2008?* What about all the dirty GOP tricks in 2000 and 2004?
    * One of your earliest posts was in the CE forum and it was highly racist so anything you have to say is pointless and without merit as far as I'm concerned

    ACORN? Not even in the same league as the GOP when it comes to fraud

    OnPolitics (washingtonpost.com)
    Perhaps the most dramatic undercount in this election was the nonexistent ballots of the countless unknown eligible voters, who were wrongfully purged from the voter registration rolls, turned away from the polls, and by various other means prevented from exercising the franchise. While statistical data, reinforced by credible anecdotal evidence, point to widespread disenfranchisement and denial of voting rights, it is impossible to determine the extent of the disenfranchisement or to provide an adequate remedy to the persons whose voices were silenced in this historic election by a pattern and practice of injustice, ineptitude and inefficiency.
    During the November 2000 presidential election in Florida, restrictive statutory provisions, wide-ranging errors and inadequate and unequal resources in the election process denied countless Floridians the right to vote. The disenfranchisement of Florida's voters fell most harshly on the shoulders of African Americans. Statewide, based upon county-level statistical estimates, African American voters were nearly ten times more likely than white voters to have their ballots rejected in Florida. On a statewide basis, while African Americans comprised about 11% of all voters in Florida in the November 2000 presidential election, African Americans cast about 54% of the ballots that were rejected in the election. Before and during the election state and county officials were aware of several key factors that ultimately contributed to the disenfranchisement of qualified voters.
