God Bless Our (Banana) Republic

Early voting is well underway in several states across the country and you know what that means; various liberal groups doing their damndest to turn the United States electoral system into one that Hugo Chavez would be proud of.

The issue is voter fraud - fraud on a massive scale being perpetrated by so-called non partisan groups like ACORN and Project Vote. The list of offenses is shameful. And the fact that the fraud is nationwide and is all being done in the name of Democrats should concern all Americans who believe in the sanctity of the vote.

Michelle Malkin has the particulars:

* Yesterday, Nevada officials raided ACORN's Las Vegas office after election authorities accused the group of submitting multiple voter registrations with fake and duplicate names. Among the bogus monikers: names of former Dallas Cowboys players.

* Lake County, Ind., election officials this month rejected thousands of registration forms ACORN had turned in from its drives this summer. On a conference call yesterday, GOP officials noted that up to 11,000 of the applications were no good - tying up election officials and jeopardizing the voting rights of untold victims whose identities may have been stolen.

In what seems to be ACORN's standard operating procedure, vote canvassers had pulled names and addresses from phone books and forged signatures. According to a local paper (the Northwest Indiana and Illionois Times), "Large numbers of voter registration forms bore signatures all in the same apparent handwriting style" and "apparently the organization's canvassers broke rules to meet ACORN-set voter registration quotas to get paid." The fake registrants include dead people and underage kids.

* Milwaukee, Wisc., officials last month discovered at least seven felons employed as voter-registration workers for ACORN and another affiliated group. (State law bans felons from such work.) They also uncovered a raft of problematic voter-registration cards. The state GOP accuses the group of trying to get dead, imprisoned or imaginary people on the voter rolls. Fraud has plagued ACORN's Milwaukee chapter since the last election cycle.

There's more at the link.

The bottom line is Obama and the Democrats are going to make sure every single vote is counted - even if they have to commit fraud to do it.
