New Mexico Republicans have discovered that dozens of votes cast in the primaries were bogus.
The GOP's review was conducted in House District 13 and only included 92 ballots. That means roughly a third of the ballots examined were fraudulent.ACORN's criminality is being investigated across the country with state and federal investigators looking at how the organization operates its voter drives.
“This is a bombshell. We now have undeniable proof that a significant number of fraudulent voters were cast in Democrat primary races for the New Mexico state legislature as a result of ACORN’s voter registration fraud,” said State Representative Justine Fox Young (R.-Albuquerque). “No longer can ACORN argue that their phony voter registration forms don’t translate into fraudulent votes. They do and today we can prove it.”
Conservatives are calling on Congress to defund ACORN of their federal funding. With increasing evidence ACORN is involved in voter registration fraud and voter fraud, as shown in Albuquerque, it become more important ACORN be stripped of their federal assistance.
The ACORN office in Albuquerque has been a beneficiary of generous federal tax dollars. Information from House Minority Leader John Boehner's office shows that Albuquerque's ACORN branch has received $349,253 in federal tax dollars since 1998.
ACORN fraud will cost taxpayers countless more dollars, in Albuquerque and elsewhere, as local election officials are forced to spend hundreds of hours investigating the thousands of fraudulent voter applications ACORN has submitted across the nation.
Of course, the left screeches back that these claims of fraud are themselves bogus and that there's no evidence of fraud and that any such attempts to ensure that only those who are lawfully allowed to vote is somehow disenfranchising. Or, consider that Rolling Stone and other leftists are claiming that the GOP is stealing the election (where have we heard that one before).
Meanwhile, Georgia's Democrats are busy trying to thwart (HT: DaddyG at LGF) the Georgia's attempts to check identifications prior to voting to ensure that only those who are registered to vote do so. The Georgia Secretary of State fired back hard, noting that checking for proper identification is an assurance that people are who they say they are when they vote and that there's absolutely no evidence that anyone has been disenfranchised by that process.
It figures that the New York Times is covering for ACORN. They think that the issues are overblown. Then again, the Times didn't quite take much of an interest in election fraud in New Jersey, including dead voters, so live voter fraud isn't going to get their dander up. However, the moment someone asks for identification before going into the polling booth to ensure that people are who they say they are - that's cause for concern
