A few individuals at ACORN were caught engaging in various fraudulent activities - illegally registering voters, for example. Although ACORN fired the people involved and reported them to the proper authorities as necessary, many conservative pundits and politicians used this fact to attack ACORN and eventually they succeeded in passing an unconstitutional law to defund ACORN.
Well, recently a few republican activists have been caught illegally registering voters - tricking them into registering as Republicans.
Applying the same logic as we applied to ACORN, doesn't this make the Republican Party a "massive criminal conspiracy?" Should left wing talk show hosts start crying on national TV now because they're afraid for their country? Shall we start blaming the results of any elections we don't like on the fraudulent activities of this criminal undertaking masquerading as a political party?
After all, the actions of individuals working on behalf the Republican party speaks volumes about the leadership and values of the party, do they not?

Is the Republican Party receiving tax dollars? If they are then those dollars should be returned to the tax payer with interest! If not then worry about something else! ACORN was being funded by me and others who pay taxes, I don't think the RNC is.
As for duping someone into registering as a Republican when they are not, well, they would be duped into something at some point they don't seem to bright!
ACORN was exposed for several employees committing fraud, a drop in the bucket of that organization no doubt. GS has been exposed for . . . what, we're not all clear on yet, certainly immoral finagling, but we don't know if it was illegal, ACORN was both immoral and illegal.
The voter fraud and bribery of the Democratic party is historically long and active, just look up an active Democratic party leader from bygone days and by now they'd love to talk and fill you in and laugh about it.
Can't imagine how someone get's tricked into registering as a Republican, unless in the primary they wanted to vote for a Republican and then were forced to vote a Republican ticket in the general? Sounds odd, will follow your link and see if it is explained.
If you want to apply this same logic to the Republican Party then you must to the Democratic party as well, so I suppose we are all governed by members of a "massive criminal conspiracy". Which sounds about right to me.
Unfortunately most Americans still don't get it...
How do you think ACORN compared with Goldmine Sacks?
Just a kind of curiosity - when did AIG received bail out money - under Bush or Obama? And Goldman, if any?
I always thought Goldman Sachs was president or whatever of Sachs in the mall. Boy was I wrong!!!!
Under Bush AIG got $80 billion which was passed through to it's "counter-parties" of which Goldman was the biggest, i.e. Goldman got most of the 80 billion. The TARP was passed under Bush.
Wrong is wrong... doesn't matter the party affiliation.
It's increasingly difficult to figure out if there are any politicians on either side who have a value system which puts people ahead of their own career goals.

The result of a self absorbed orange abomination perched in our oval office in an apparent paranoid state facing impending impeachment and the righteous hand of justice to finally be laid upon his wretched being: A rapidly shrinking republican party can’t possibly be a surprise to anyone who...

I've always said that I didn't think Mitt would win in SC, and now Newt is ahead in the state in several polls. The GOP has gone so far to the right that they don't want a moderate. It just boggles my mind that any reasonable person could back Newt. If you think we have gridlock in Washington now,...

This week in Michigan enough Tea Party delegates showed up at a Republican meeting to elect delegates to the party's nominating convention for the election in November to defeat the current Republican party chairman's bid to be elected a delegate. This strikes me as a cataclysmic event for the...

During the 2010 mid-terms the GOP campaigned fiercely on the platform of job creation and, as a result of such promises, the GOP gained the majority in the House of Representatives. As the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner made the welcome claim that the primary goal of the Republican Party...
