ACORN Diffuses A-Bomb
The Republicans are going to have to find a new drum to bang after ACORN acknowledged potential voter fraud.
For those out of the loop, ACORN is a nationwide organization that has been registering poor and moderate-income voters across 18 states.
The group has been the subject of many negative ads because of its ties to Obama, but mostly because the voters that ACORN is registering are more likely to vote for Obama.
Trust, if ACORN was focusing its registering drives on Wall St., there wouldn't be a problem.
Officials from ACORN said that it is the responsibility of state election officials to weed out the bad applications (which is a suspect statement, because the likelihood of officials catching every single bad application is slim to none).
I think Republicans have a right to call shenanigans if they feel like somebody is trying to overwhelm the system, but in reality, its not that big of an issue...I highly doubt that half of those people even vote.
