DFL Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie has stated that in Minnesota, ACORN doesn’t engage in voter fraud. That’s the definition of insanity. To wit: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.
Here’s what the Wall Street Journal wrote on ACORN:
In Ohio in 2004, a worker for one affiliate was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations that included underage voters, dead voters and pillars of the community named Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey. During a congressional hearing in Ohio in the aftermath of the 2004 election, officials from several counties in the state explained ACORN’s practice of dumping thousands of registration forms in their lap on the submission deadline, even though the forms had been collected months earlier.
At least in Nevada, where another Democrat is the secretary of state, they have someone who’s not afraid to take on ACORN for their illegal voter registration violations. Here’s an excerpt on the Nevada ACORN raid, from Fox News:
“Some of them used nonexistent names, some of them used false addresses and some of them were duplicates of previously filed applications,” Walsh said, describing the complaints, which largely came from the registrar in Clark County, Nev.
Secretary of State Ross Miller said the fraudulent registrations included forms for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys football team.
“Tony Romo is not registered to vote in the state of Nevada, and anybody trying to pose as Terrell Owens won’t be able to cast a ballot on Nov. 4,” Miller said.
That’s hardly all. In 2006, ACORN was investigated for voter registration fraud in Washington state, and out of 1,800 registrations, only six — SIX! — were genuine registrations.
So, yeah, we’re supposed to believe Minnesota is the only state in which ACORN operates above-board? I want home theater seating to that asylum commitment hearing!
