ACORN says, “Not this time.”
By Miryam Ehrlich Williamson
ACORN, the organization dedicated to advocacy for low- and moderate-income people, is fighting back against the McCain Campaign and Republican Party’s attempt to brand them as a danger to American democracy., by charging them with voter fraud.
Granted, a few bad apples have tried to pad their paychecks by filing voter registration forms in tte name of Mickey Mouse and some of the Dallas Cowboys. In cases where ACORN spotted the offending forms, they, and not the Republicans, notified election authorities. But there is simply no instance in which Mickey Mouse or someone impersonating a Dallas football player has attempted to vote, let alone actually having cast a fraudulent vote.
It’s all a red herring, designed to draw attention away from GOP attempts to keep minority voters and those presumed to favor Barack Obama from voting. ACORN plans a public information campaign in the next few days, leading up to the November 4 election.
Here’s the video they’ve started running today.
