Stop Ridiculous Smears Against ACORN-- Get the Facts

ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is the nation's largest community organization of low and moderate income families working together for social justice and stronger communities. The fact that they self-reported some phony registrations by Mickey Mouse and the Dallas Cowboys et al, is now being absurdly portrayed as an intentional fraud designed to steal the election and undermine the fabric of democracy. No mind that, um, nobody's going to actually LET Mickey Mouse vote, should he so brazenly come to the polls, and that there is a huge distinction between voter REGISTRATION and actually VOTING.

Meanwhile, this bullshit subterfuge is being used to preempt McCain's refusal to accept (Dubya-supreme-court-string-pullin'-style) is impending defeat once it happens, and to divert attention from ACTUAL election fraud being actively and vigorously perpetrated by the Repugnicans, AGAIN, just as they did with great success in 2000 and 2004.

"ACORN recently worked to stop Republican voter suppression tactics in New Mexico and Michigan.

ACORN debunked New Mexico Republican Party claim that fraudulent voters - some of whom registered with ACORN - participated in the June 2008 Democratic primary. ACORN contacted the voters the Republican party mentioned during a press conference and confirmed their legitimacy through the Bernalillo County Clerk. All are first-time voters - three 18 and 19-year-olds and a new citizen. ACORN presented its findings at a press conference Oct. 18 in New Mexico. "This is un-American," said Celestina Balderas, an ACORN leader. READ ON and get the facts about ACORN--and the latest bullshit smear tactic by McPalin and double check that the Repugnicans haven't purged your voter registration based on a technicality...it's happening all over.
