Did ACORN Elect Al Franken?


At least one Minnesota newspaper has raised the possibility... and actually, it's hard to imagine how they wouldn't have been deployed to help the Dear Leader get his supermajority- isn't it?

The Twin-Cities' Katherine Kersten writes in today's Star-Tribune:
ACORN was once the darling of Democrats for its support of every item on the left-wing wish list. Suddenly, its employees can hardly find a Democrat who will answer their phone calls. When the U.S. Senate voted on Sept. 14 to cut off federal housing dollars for ACORN, the tally was a lopsided 83-7.
ACORN's foibles may seem largely irrelevant here in Minnesota, where the organization has so far been able to keep its nose relatively clean.
But ACORN does have a special place in its heart for at least one prominent Minnesota politician. Last year, it showered praise on Al Franken, endorsing his run for the U.S. Senate. Franken returned the esteem: "I'm thrilled and honored to receive this endorsement," he gushed in a press release. He added that he was "more motivated than ever to work with ACORN."...
It's worth recalling, however, that ACORN is best-known for its massive voter-registration campaigns, which focus relentlessly on getting Democrats elected in targeted states. Here its record is appalling -- and goes to the heart of our democratic electoral system...
ACORN's practices can make fraud difficult to detect. For example, "at election offices around the country, ACORN workers are famous for waiting until registration deadline to dump thousands of new documents on overworked clerks -- making it harder for them to fully vet the registration forms,"....
Here in Minnesota, ACORN has boasted of playing a major role in the 2008 elections. It claims to have registered 43,000 new voters, which it describes as 75 percent of the state's new registrations. Franken's margin of victory in the Senate race was razor-thin: 312 votes out of about 3 million cast. And Minnesota's laws on proof of voter eligibility are notoriously loose.
Did ACORN folks pull some fast ones to help get their favorite son Franken elected -- a win that handed Democrats the 60-vote, veto-proof majority that they needed to enact their liberal agenda?

And this one has got to take-the-cake: Moonbattery tells us how ACORN's founder sounded absolutely forlorn as he described the foiling of a plot to kill Republicans at their 2008 convention- nice, eh?

Of course they did. Some years ago, the Dems focused on funding races for the Secretary of State positions in each state, allowing them political control over voting disputes.

The entire voting process has been undermined by the Democrats and Acorn.

Good to hear from you, Nick- as always

And I sure agree with you on all counts here- disgraceful, bad-faith gaming of the electoral system... reason enough right there to keep the left out of power for good.

RRR - Agree with you and Nickie, this thing stinks to high-heaven, I recall bizarre stories re: the Franken vote count, ballots showing up out of nowhere, even then I knew ACORN had it's hand in his election.....

Are ya right-wing nuts conspiring to make ACORN look as if they are involved in voter fraud? Well since I know your not and ACORN has been known to stretch a lie into so-called truth, I agree with you.
Great post RRR! sharky

Acorn is as dirty as it gets as far as corruption, and finally they have been busted like the Crooks they really are! If it wasn't for Fox News & Cons. Talk Radio in conjunction with the powerful Internet & Blogosphere they would still be unscathed under the covers of the implicit MSM. Great Job James and all the Bloggers that have been beating the Patriotic Drums of Truth to help save our Future Generations! Cheers to all!

If ACORN did get Al Franken elected, I say they should be reinstated and praised for their effort. Just heard my Senator, Jay Rockefeller, talking about Al writing an Amendment to the Health Care Bill with him that will keep the outrageously greedy Insurance companies from walking away with ALL the money. All I've seen and heard from Republicans on the Finance Committee is ongoing anti-Administration crap throwing and stubborn negativeness.
