That did jump out, didn't it? One bad apple losing this lucrative RNC contract that's been paying this guy millions (many millions) for years? Something doesn't wash.
Still, it's pretty hilarious that it happened in Florida, where Governor Rick Scott is still out there putting up hurdles to Dem voters in the name of quelching voter fraud that thusfar has not been proven to exist at all. Oh the irony.
Umm no they don't -- Acorn was defunded completely resulting in them closing down. "Following the publication of the videos and withdrawal of funding, four different independent investigations by various state and city Attorneys General and the GAO released in 2009 and 2010 cleared ACORN, finding its employees had not engaged in criminal activities and that the organization had managed its federal funding appropriately, and calling the videos deceptively and selectively edited to present the workers in the worst possible light. Despite this, by March 2010, 15 of ACORN's 30 state chapters had already closed"
I guess you did not read the articles, If you did, I guess you missd this:
"Obama's Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) gave a $79,819 grant to the largest branch of the ACORN tree, ACORN Housing Corp. (AHC). AHC filed papers last year legally changing its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA). It's the same old organization with a brand new ACORN-free name."
If you still do not think they are the same, read the next link provided. Scroll down to the amendment section and see the date 1/8/2010. See where the Louisiana State Corporate Charter records show a name change. Same company, new name still getting Federal funds.
A poll was taken recently of possible Democrats, Sink being one of them, along with Charlie Crist and Anthony Shriver, part of the Kennedy clan. I don't know the reliability of the poll, but I saw it in the Times a week or so ago. One thing is certain, Scott will go.
CLAY COUNTY (Florida) REPUBLICAN VOLUNTEER'S PHONE CALL TO SENIOR VOTERS - SHE LIES, LIES, LIES then says "pay attention to Fox News"
Listen to her entire pitch (about 90 seconds). It was picked up on the first person’s answering machine.
"Yall sound like yall are senior citizens, right? Yeah. You don't want Obama. You really don' want Obama. Because, he'll get rid of your Medicare. You might as well say goodbye to it." "I don't know if you've done any research on Obama or not, but he is a Muslim... if he had his way, we'd be a socialistic country." "Pay attention to Fox News."
On the other hand, some leftists have called Obama a Muslim, including Madonna. And, BTW, Bill Maher said that he doesn't believe the POTUS is a Christian, as Obama claims to be. I don't agree with Maher - I rarely do. lol
You're mistaken habbe, Maher likes to poke fun at the right by being ironically facetious when he parrots the terms and talking points of The Teaparty. After all he gave a million dollars to the Obama campaign fund, so I don't think he truly believes Obama's a muslim. Maher hates all religions and see's them as causing many of the problems in the world/
Bill Maher is a raving a--hole. Bill Maher may be atheist but in particular he hates Christians and if he thinks it suits he wil back anyone who ticks them off. As long as he is the big big big big draw for HBO they will not be on my TV.
He irritates a lot of people on the right but he also has a lot of personal right-wing friends so I don't think he's a "hater," JS. I can see why he gets under your skin, he can be abrasive and smug. But you're missing a lot of good commercial-free TV for just one A-hole.
Special Report On Obama: "Islam Or Isn't He?" During a June 2009 segment, Special Report aired a quote by Obama foreign policy adviser Denis McDonough, in which he talked about how Obama "experienced Islam on three continents" and spent part of his childhood in Indonesia with a Muslim father. Special Report included this question above the quote: "Islam Or Isn't He?" [Fox News, Special Report with Bret Baier, 6/3/09]
My guess is lots of folk tend to think he is Muslim because of the comment 'if an ill wind blows, I'll side with the Muslims'. that doesn't make him Muslim, but it sure does make folks wonder where his heart is at. And sorry, that doesn't really have anything to do with voter fraud.
You can't prove there aren't many cases of voter fraud by how many cases are prosecuted. It's like estimating how many cases of speeding there are based on the number of traffic tickets written. When the largest number of people show up to vote like they will this November, if they don't have a picture I.D. make one for them on the spot. Then they'll have one for the future. If SAMS Club can do this, why can't counties? If you aren't who you say you are, well, you are from here on!
This article is from today's paper, Tampa Bay Times (used to be St. Pete Times). The vendor hired by the RNC to register voters in swing states has been canceled by the Repulican party of FL, Strategic Allied Consulting, which was formed in June by a man who also has a similar group in AZ. He is a Republican consultant, former Christian Coalition operative. He also was previously under investigation for voter fraud. http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/n … er/1253836
Voter Registration Discrimination – Volunteer Only Registers Romney Voters
A video that has been going viral over the past few days shows a young woman who claims to work for the El Paso County Clerk’s Office in Colorado and is caught saying that she only registers Romney supporters.
We all need to *Buddy Up* when we register and help those who need to register. Make sure you get some type of proof of who the people are making the alleged fraud. Include places where the registration process is all inclusive. Remember, there is "power in numbers", get clear facts of proof to validate!
Just to (partially) clarify--I don't even remember with whom I was agreeing in my last remark, but it wasn't JSChams. Ha! Just saying....Sometimes a reply gets moved away from the original thread and appears to be linked to someone else. I think I was replying to either Mighty Mom or Wizard of Whimsey.
