DEFUND: ACORN /John Boehner R-Ohio Declares War On ACORN

De-Fund ACORN, Republican Leader Insists

All federal funding to ACORN must be stopped,” House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Thursday, amid a widening probe into voter registration fraud by the liberal group.

Questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, have turned up in as many as nine states, including so-called swing states.

The “nonpartisan” community-organizer group works to recruit low-income, Democrat-leaning voters. Its national Web site says the group has registered 1.3 million people nationwide for the Nov. 4 election.

“The latest allegations of voter registration fraud by ACORN are further evidence that this group cannot be trusted with another dollar of the taxpayers’ money,” Boehner said in a news release.

Boehner is one of many people who believe the group has broken the law to promote its left-wing agenda. He says it happened, even as ACORN received “millions” of taxpayer dollars through various federal programs and third-party groups.

“House Republicans took a stand recently to cut off funding to an ACORN slush fund created by their Democratic allie but now more must be done,” Boehner said.

The congressman's Web site notes that in the recently passed financial bailout package, Republicans “stripped out special-interest earmarks for trial lawyers, labor bosses and thinly-veiled political organizations like ACORN that were included in the original deal struck between congressional Democrats and the Treasury Department."

“The ACORN slush fund must be disbanded,” Boehner said. “Sources of federal funding through the Department of Housing and Urban Development or any other agency must be stopped. Contracting for services between candidates for federal office and ACORN, as Senator Obama has done, must end. Now that the taxpayers own Fannie Mae, any funding from Fannie Mae’s nonprofit foundation to ACORN must stop.”

On Tuesday, authorities in Nevada seized records from ACORN after finding fraudulent registration forms that included the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys. Bertha Lewis, interim chief organizer for ACORN, was quoted as calling the raid “a stunt that serves no useful purpose.”

In April, eight ACORN workers in St. Louis city and county pleaded guilty to federal election fraud for submitting false registration cards for the 2006 election. U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway said the group submitted cards with false addresses and names, and forged signatures.

The FBI plans to investigate the group. "It's a matter we take very seriously," FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton told the Associated Press. "It is against the law to register someone to vote who does not fall within the parameters to vote, or to put someone on there falsely."

At a campaign stop in Bethlehem, Pa., on Wednesday, supporters of John McCain interrupted his remarks Wednesday by shouting, "No more ACORN."

Debbie Mesloh, spokeswoman for the Obama campaign in Missouri, told the Associated Press in an e-mailed statement that the campaign supports any investigation of possible fraud.

Complaints of voter registration fraud have cropped up in Missouri, Wisconsin, New Mexico, Nevada and battleground states like Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina.

“ACORN is proud of the work it does to help balance the American electorate and educate people from underrepresented communities to use their voting voices,” the group says on its Web site.

Ties to Obama

*While the Obama campaign is trying to downplay its ties to ACORN, the Republican National Committee has issued a “Fact Sheet” playing up those ties.

*In 1992 Obama worked for Project Vote, ACORN’s voter-registration arm, the RNC says on its Web site.

*The Associated Press reported that in 1995, Obama was among a team of attorneys who represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the State of Illinois. ACORN sued the state for failing implement a federal law designed to make it easier for the poor people to register as voters.

*In 2001 and 2002 -- a time when Obama served on the board of directors of the The Woods Fund -- the Chicago ACORN received thousands of dollars in grants from the Fund, the RNC says.

*And this year, ACORN’s political action committee endorsed Obama for president.

*According to an August 2008 report in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, the Obama presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to Citizens Services Inc. -- a subsidiary of ACORN.

*The Obama campaign later amended Federal Election Commission reports to show that Citizens Services Inc. did get-out-the-vote projects, not activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as the campaign stated in FEC finance reports filed during the primary.

Obama Campaign Runs Afoul of Finance Rules

Obama Will Steal Election

Whoa! I didnt even know we the taxpayer's were funding this Liberal group! I'm not paying another dime for this! I'll write that on my income tax form also! I think they need to start explaining right on our tax forms what the hell our money is funding and have a check mark there so we can check NO if we dont want to pay for it. But Hey! If Boehner want's to quit funding ACORN right NOW, I'm all for it!

One, I think the ties between Obama and ACORN should be covered mnore than they are.

Two, there should be an emergency session of Congress to pass legislation demanding that every State adopt presenting a picture ID before being allowed to vote in THIS election which will prevent the ACORN crap from having any affect because ID forces on person one vote !

This is every bit as important as passing the bailout bill unlike the bailout bill it does not stink of socialism!

I agree completely!

This stuff is popping up all over the Country!

You would never get away with this stuff in Oklahoma.

In Oklahoma you have to show picture ID, sign a book get handed a ballot and a felt pen, you fill in the arrow, and stuff it in the machine which sucks it right out of your hand and counts it right away electronically!

I recieved my absentee ballot, they made me use a #2 pencil ONLY, fill in the arrow, get it notorized, one ballot goes in one envelope, the other ballot goes in the other envelope, and both envelopes get stuffed in the envelope filled out by the Notary and then goes in the big envelope back to the Oklahoma Election board or my precinct or wherever.

They just dont play these games in Oklahoma.

I think every state should vote like Oklahoma, you just cant mess it up.


I had no idea we were funding this crap!

It's time it comes to an end and they just run off donations or something because I dont want to pay for ACORN to screw up my election!

Well I have you to thank for that poster Gayle lol :-)
