53,000 Dead Voters Found in Florida – How Many in Your State???

By J. Christian Adams via PJ Media

I have learned that Florida election officials are set to announce that the secretary of state has discovered and purged up to 53,000 dead voters from the voter rolls in Florida.

How could 53,000 dead voters have sat on the polls for so long?  Simple. Because Florida hadn’t been using the best available data revealing which voters have died.  Florida is now using the nationwide Social Security Death Index for determining which voters should be purged because they have died.

Here is the bad news.  Most states aren’t using the same database that Florida is.  In fact, I have heard reports that some election officials won’t even remove voters even when they are presented with a death certificate.  That means that voter rolls across the nation still are filled with dead voters, even if Florida is leading the way in detecting and removing them.

But surely people aren’t voting in the names of dead voters, the voter fraud deniers argue.  Wrong.


Consider the case of Lafayette Keaton.  Keaton not only voted for a dead person in Oregon, he voted for his dead son.  Making Keaton’s fraud easier was Oregon’s vote by mail scheme, which has opened up gaping holes in the integrity of elections.  The incident in Oregon just scratches the surface of the problem.  Massachusetts and Mississippi are but two other examples of the dead rising on election day.

Florida should be applauded for taking the problem seriously, even if Eric Holder’s Justice Department and many state election officials don’t.

Anita Moncrief Takes on Eric Holder on Race, ACORN and Voter Fraud

By  J. Christian Adams via PJ Media

(Legal Editor Note: Not long ago, the Left had a monopoly on rallies and protests. Republicans and conservatives, more enamored with scholars instead of brawlers, shunned displays of political muscle in the streets. That’s all changed. A few months ago, Attorney General Eric Holder went to the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas, to announce an aggressive attack on state election integrity measures like Voter ID. This election-year strategy is designed to stoke the leftist base but risks alienating everyone else. To greet Holder that day were hundreds of citizens at a rally sponsored by True the Vote.

I will never forget the disoriented look on Holder’s face as he emerged from the black SUV to the large crowd of people who came out to confront him. “Signs? Bullhorns? Multitudes? And they aren’t here to support me?” — that was the look.

ACORN whistleblower Anita Moncrief delivered a powerful speech that day, and PJ Media has finally been able to obtain it and publish it.)

Thank you. It’s an honor to be here today and I’m glad to see that there’s so many of you with your video cameras, because after the mainstream media gets hold of this, it will be “an all-white crowd showed up to protest Eric Holder.”  So I’m glad we’ll have a little bit of somebody to combat that.

I speak from the heart and I speak plain, so if I offend some of you I’m sorry. But it’s an honor to be here today, especially to be at the LBJ Library, the father of the Great Society, the father of the social programs and the welfare state, and then the dissolution of the black family and our communities.

When LBJ signed in the Voting Rights Act in 1965, he said: “We’ll have those niggers voting Democrat for the next 40 years.” And that needs to be said. People need to understand that. That’s the legacy that Holder brings here with him tonight by holding his speech here. It’s not just about coming here to talk about voting rights. It’s to talk about how they’ve taken race and turned it in to something that is unrecognizable.

I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the heart of the civil rights movement. I could have walked to the 16th Street Baptist Church that was bombed during the civil rights era. And I have to tell you, the racism that I experienced, the evilness that came at me, it wasn’t from Birmingham, Alabama. It was from when I moved to the liberal north, and I got to see how things really were, and part of that was working with ACORN.

And that’s why I’m here today, to let you know what you guys are up against. This is not just something that has come out recently. This is something that started in the ’90s when Bill Clinton was in office. Not many people realize this, but ACORN helped get Bill Clinton elected, and the National Voter Registration Act was Clinton’s gift to ACORN.

And so for 10 years, ACORN and its sister organization Project Vote were going around the country and forcing Section 7 of the NVRA, which is the part about registering voters in public assistance agencies.  They coordinated openly with the Clinton Justice Department during the ’90s, and during that time they had voter registrations coming out of these public assistance offices in the millions. This was their demographic.

Imagine a government, a federal mandate targeting a certain demographic. What if we were to say that by federal law you have to register people in churches and gun stores across the country? You don’t think liberals would lose their mind?

They are targeting their demographic, the people that are getting them elected, and this Obama gravy train has gotten out of control. We have more people on public assistance and welfare and unemployment than ever before, and they are coordinating to get Obama elected.

I have proof that Obama and Project Vote and ACORN were coordinating illegally in 2008 to get Obama elected. Do you not think that they would do the same thing in 2012 to get this man put back in office?

If there is proof that the Department of Justice ignored an ACORN investigation because they knew it would lead right to the White House, do you not think they would try to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests that show collusion between Project Vote, who has been pushing this project for years, and now the DOJ has all of a sudden started back filing lawsuits across the country under Section 7 violations.

This is a coordinated effort by ACORN and its people to push the same agenda that they’ve been doing for 20 years. We have the proof, we can connect the dots. They’ve been contacting the Department of Justice up until 2004 to force them to file lawsuits; even when Bush was in office and Antonio Gonzales was the Attorney General, they were still trying to get them to collude with them and to work.

So now, now, when they publicly acknowledge working with the Department of Justice in those previous administrations, why are they denying it and hiding it now? Could it be because it’s illegal collusion? Could it be because they’re trying to work to get Obama elected?

These are the questions we need to ask. We have — and I say “we” because there are people I’m working with — over 55,000 documents that could indict some of these people from ACORN and Project Vote, the same people that are out there right now meddling around in New York with Occupy Wall Street and across the country.

Why won’t Darrell Issa and his people call for a congressional investigation of ACORN when there are enough documents to bury these people? Why won’t we get them to take the stand?

We need you guys to step up and do this. I am today calling for two things: one, a Congressional investigation into the activities of ACORN and Project Vote, the Obama administration, and its relation to the Department of Justice in these Section 7 lawsuits across the country; and two, I am calling on you guys to help me with this, to not only call for Holder’s resignation but his impeachment.

I am so tired of race being a dividing factor in our communities. I grew up poor in Birmingham, Alabama, and I will tell you, in the black community they don’t have a lot of opportunities, there’s not a lot of banks, so where are you going to get your check cashed at? The liquor store, or you go to a check cashing place.

You can’t do anything without an ID in the black community. Sometimes they won’t even let you use your debit card unless they can verify you are who you are, because they lose money on fraudulent purchases every year. These are the realities of being poor and being black in America. Why is Sharpton ignoring this? He knows exactly what I’m talking about, but he’s a professional race-baiter. He smells that 8mm camera film and he comes running out there and he pulls out that platinum race card.

I’m tired of the platinum race card, and that’s why I’m here today — to let you know it’s a lie, it’s something they have used to divide this country, and we have got to get together and stop it. And the only way we can do that is to unite our voices and call for these investigations, and to let people know that we are tired of this race card and we’re not going to put up with that in 2012.

How Many Crimes Did the New Black Panthers Commit in Florida?

By J. Christian Adams via PJ Media

When New Black Panther Mikhail Muhammad called for the mobilization of a 10,000 strong black male mob to capture George Zimmerman, we glimpsed into the depths of racial depravity of the organization. “An eye for an eye,” Muhammad threatened.  A cash bounty for Zimmerman, “Dead or Alive,” provided a nasty incentive for thugs across the land.But did a crime occur in the New Black Panther’s call for mob vengeance against Zimmerman? Quite possibly.

I’ve been familiar with this crowd since the day President Obama was elected when I worked at the Department of Justice.  Soon after election day 2008, I and other attorneys would bring a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panthers.  The Obama administration famously dismissed the case.  Afterwards, I and another DOJ lawyer testified under oath about the hostility within the Obama DOJ to bringing cases against defendants like the NBPP.  Nobody has ever contradicted the specifics of our testimony, or the details in my book Injustice which describes, among other things, Eric Holder’s personal involvement in the panther case dismissal.

Now Florida officials may have a chance to do what Eric Holder refused to do – bring these New Black Panther gangsters to justice once and for all.

State Attorney Norman Wolfinger is busy these days.  While he is busy looking at the underlying facts of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, he needs to look at the New Black Panther threats also.

America is not a land where thugs should be allowed to threaten free Americans who have been charged with no crime.  Seminole County, Florida, is not Ox-Bow Canyon, where resolutions come quick by murderers with rope and a tree.

We can thank Eric Holder in part for the disgusting bravado we’ve seen from these lawless thugs over the last few days.  Not only did his DOJ drop the voter intimidation charges against them, the DOJ refuses to bring what appears to be slam dunk felon-in-possession gun charges against one member.

The New Black Panthers act like they are above the law because so far they have been.

Americans are taking renewed notice of the New Black Panthers, and the politicians who have enabled them.  What sort of country have we become that racist uniformed thugs can stalk polls and threaten free citizens with mob arrest and murder?  Is this a post-racial America, or a wicked reminder of a lawless age we thought we had moved beyond forever?

So what crimes may have the New Black Panthers committed in Florida with their threats toward George Zimmerman?

Let’s start with solicitation to kidnap.  In announcing a reward for the seizure of Zimmerman, the New Black Panthers may have violated Florida Code 787.01.  It makes it a felony to “by threat, confining or abducting, or imprisoning another person against his . . .  will without lawful authority with intent to . .  . terrorize.”

Merely soliciting someone else to do this is also a felony in Florida under code section 777.04.  “A person who solicits another to commit an offense prohibited by law and in the course of such solicitation commands, encourages, hires, or requests another person to engage in specific conduct which would constitute such offense or an attempt to commit such offense commits the offense of criminal solicitation.”

The solicitation and threat to seize Zimmerman may also constitute a crime under Florida Code 876.35.  The felony of Combination Against the People of the State occurs when someone is unlawfully seized by a mob, or at the behest of a mob.   Think of a small town jail 100 years ago and angry crowd, armed with rope, demanding a particular inmate.  Sound familiar?

Florida Code 876.35 defines the crime of Combination “to remove them forcibly out of this state, or to remove them from their habitations to any other part of the state by force, or [when people] shall assemble for that purpose.”  Remember, solicitation to commit a crime is in itself a crime.

Florida Code 876.34 even makes it a felony to “interfere forcibly in the administration of the government.”

Florida has an oddball law which may play a role as the facts of the Trayvon Martin become clearer. Florida Code 843.20 is a criminal provision entitled “Harassment of participant of neighborhood crime watch program.”  It makes it a misdemeanor to threaten or intimidate a member of member of a neighborhood crime watch program “while such member is engaged in. . . an organized neighborhood crime watch program activity.”   The law says that a neighborhood patrol includes a “crime watch program activity.”  Of course Zimmerman was on his neighborhood crime watch patrol when the tragic incident occurred.

This awful mess in Sanford is bad enough without the shrill race agitators like the New Black Panthers throwing gasoline on the fire.

But free speech is free speech, until you make threats and offer money to people to commit crimes.

There was a time in this country criminal threats were treated as criminal threats.  There was a time when stalking polls on election day with a billy club was taken seriously.  Obviously we’ve lost something precious when thugs command the attention of a media unwilling to label them as thugs.  We’ve lost something precious when the most vile vigilantism not only goes unpunished, but seems to attract defenders, benefactors and fans.

How Incompetence and Malfeasance Infect the Voting Process

By Janet  Levy via Family Security Matters

Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, a recent book by J. Christian Adams, provides shocking evidence of DOJ racial bias toward minorities and the failure to apply federal law in a race-neutral fashion.  A five-year DOJ Voting Rights Section veteran, Adams cites his firsthand experience with officials who sought to promote a radical racialist agenda and who knowingly violated the National Voting Rights Act (NVRA).  Adams sounds an alarm, arguing that the values and actions pursued by the DOJ jeopardize our constitutional republic and endanger America’s core principles of government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Violations of the voting process depicted in Adams’ book are manifold and include incompetence, fraud, partisanship, and intimidation or thuggery.  These rampant and pervasive problems warrant serious interventions to curb abuses of a right Americans hold sacrosanct.  Fortunately, citizens’ groups are becoming more involved in elections and have recognized the need to do more to protect the rights of the electorate under the law.


Problems with elections begin with poorly trained poll workers.  The quality of training varies from district to district, which can significantly impact election integrity.  Myriad government regulations and complicated logistical procedures create confusion among well-meaning poll workers as these people attempt to manage election operations.  Incompetence can include poll workers improperly turning away legitimate voters or inadvertently admitting illegitimate voters.  In states where voter IDs are not required or permitted, determining who is a legitimate voter can be a daunting if not impossible task.

Other problems include failure to properly administer provisional ballots, which are used when questions arise about a voter’s eligibility, and failure to provide adequate instruction to voters requiring assistance.  Handling of spoiled ballots is also a source of errors, with remedies left to individual districts, counties, and states.

Further, no methodology exists in Maryland, and perhaps other states, to update voter rolls when residents sell their homes, move, or change residences, according to Cathy Kelleher, president of Election Integrity Maryland, a nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to cleaning up voting rolls and training volunteers to be poll watchers.  Although voters may submit a form, it may or may not be used to make the necessary changes, says Kelleher.  She cites examples of multiple families listed as residing and voting at one address.  She has found cases in which registered voters’ addresses were actually an open field or a parking lot, in which property demolitions were not taken into account, and in which voter lists contained the names of deceased persons who formerly resided at a local nursing home.


Voter fraud is widespread and has played a critical role in many close races.  Abuses include registering more than once and voting multiple times; forced “assistance” of voters; suppression of the military vote; voting by felons, non-citizens, and the underaged; and voting using names of deceased voters or fictional people — including cartoon characters and dogs.

In the case of the voter registration group ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) — renamed AHCOA (Affordable Housing Centers of America) — and its affiliate, Project Vote, federal investigators found misappropriated funds from a federal grant; registration of nearly 12,000 non-citizens in Colorado alone; a report from Philadelphia officials of over 8,000 improper voter registrations; and several thousand fraudulent registrations in Indiana, with names and addresses pulled from telephone books and forged signatures.

Although FBI investigative reports delineate serious allegations of corruption and voter registration fraud by ACORN, the Obama administration in 2009 shut down a criminal investigation of the group without filing criminal charges.  The Obama administration claimed that ACORN broke no laws and had merely engaged in “questionable hiring and training practices.”  In the 1990s, Obama worked for ACORN, procuring funding, training its leaders, and representing the organization in court.

In 2011, Judicial Watch traced additional federal money from the Obama administration to ACORN spinoffs, despite laws prohibiting funding to ACORN.  Judicial Watch also reported that “70 ACORN employees in 12 states have been convicted of voter registration fraud” and that “of the 1.3 million registrations Project Vote/ACORN submitted in the 2008 election cycle, more than one third were invalid.”  ACORN/Project Vote activists have been caught or accused of destroying Republican registrations and filing duplicate registrations or registrations for deceased or fictional people.

Presently, Project Vote is actively registering recipients of public assistance programs such as food stamps, welfare, and unemployment and is threatening lawsuits under the NVRA.  This is occurring at the same time as the Obama administration has doubled taxpayer spending on food stamps and is offering $75,000 grants to organizations to increase program participation.  The historic levels of food stamp usage — one out of every seven Americans — the effort by the Obama administration to increase usage, and the drive to register aid recipients provide perfect conditions for voter registration fraud, especially since Project Vote opposes fraud protections in voter registration and elections in several states.  According to Judicial Watch, the percentage of invalid voter registrations from Colorado public assistance agencies alone was four times the national average.


The League of Women Voters (LWV), with 140,000 members nationwide and chapters in every state, describes itself as a nonpartisan group that encourages citizen participation in the political process.  However, the LWV takes a stand on many political issues and attempts to influence policy through advocacy and lobbying.  The LWV, funded in part by George Soros, supports many leftist causes such as expansion of the welfare state; disarmament; radical environmentalism; unrestricted taxpayer access to abortion on demand; motor-voter registration, which legitimizes voting by illegal aliens; elimination of the electoral college; an increased role for the United Nations; gun control; socialized health care; and increased taxes, among other issues.

Yet the LWV prints voter guides, holds registration drives, conducts debates, and administers voter opinion polls, all supposedly objective and nonpartisan.  In certain districts across the country, they contract with local boards of elections to perform troubleshooting at the polls, survey voting locations, evaluate the training of poll workers, and conduct post-election debriefings.  Far from being impartial, the LWV’s opinion polls are generally skewed in favor of the organization’s point of view and often agitate for a preferred response.  As for their allegedly nonpartisan voter guides, the LWV has been accused of inferring bias there as well.


During the 2008 election, the New Black Panthers intimidated white voters with racial epithets and threats of violence.  YouTube videos showed two uniformed Panthers, one brandishing a billy club and shouting, “You’re about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker” to approaching white voters.  Following the incident, the Bush administration filed criminal charges against three Panthers for violating the NVRA.  All charges were later dismissed by Obama’s DOJ.  Adams, the DOJ Voting Section attorney who had brought the case, resigned shortly thereafter for the “corrupt nature of the dismissal of the case” and testified before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission that the Obama DOJ had instructed attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases involving black defendants and white victims.

In November of 2010, at multiple polling places in Houston, Panthers in paramilitary attire entered voting locations for discussions with election officials.  It was reported that white poll watchers were either denied admittance or ejected from the facilities.

Meanwhile, the Occupy movement has plans to create an Occupy the Election faction to build momentum for the idea that electronic voting machines cannot be trusted.  They will make vociferous demands that all votes be hand-counted.  Concern has arisen that the group will wreak havoc in precincts, block the voting process, and negatively effect voter turnout.

Secretaries of State
In all but three states, the Secretary of State (SOS) serves as the chief election officer, who certifies candidates and election results.  In 35 states, this is an elected position; in 12 states, the governor appoints the SOS.  SOS responsibilities include conducting the election, enforcing election rules, determining precinct locations, establishing Election Day procedures, and allocating and ensuring the security of voting machines.  Additionally, secretaries of state purge voter rolls and register new voters.  In other words, they decide who can vote, how they will vote, and which ballots are counted.  The SOS serves a vital role in ensuring the legitimacy of each election, weeding out fraud and prohibiting voter intimidation or coercion.

In 2006, George Soros, multi-billionaire funder of left-wing causes and one of the most powerful political forces in the world, founded a tax-exempt Section 527 political group with other leftists known as the Secretary of State Project (SOSP).  The sole objective was to elect progressive Democrats as secretaries of state in battleground states.  The SOSP succeeded in 11 out of 18 races, including the key states of Ohio, Nevada, Iowa, New Mexico, and Minnesota, thus placing partisan officials in charge of elections.

Conveniently, Section 527 organizations are not subject to the scrutiny of the Federal Election Commission.  Therefore, no upper limit exists on contributions, nor do any restrictions exist on who can contribute.

In subsequent elections, the SOSP’s impact was evident.  In the Norm Coleman/Al Franken congressional race in Minnesota, a handpicked Soros acolyte decided the close race.  Ballots were mysteriously found in an election judge’s car, close to 400 convicted felons cast votes, and suspicious voting machine irregularities occurred.  In Ohio, the secretary of state elected through the SOSP efforts invalidated one million absentee-ballot applications issued by John McCain’s presidential campaign.

What is Being Done?

Grassroots groups have entered the fray to address this serious threat to our constitutional republic and this undermining of the power of the people to determine representative leadership.  The most extensive and prominent organization of this type is the Houston-based True the Vote (TTV).  TTV was founded in 2009 by Catherine Engelbrecht, who says that “True the Vote was founded to provide a coordinated program through which American citizens can participate in the support of free and fair elections.”

Engelbrecht recognized the need to remedy problems in the voting process.  With TTV leadership, she has identified opportunities for intervention: monitoring voter registration and validating its legitimacy, verifying voter-roll accuracy, ensuring that citizens know their rights, and improving competence through proper training of poll workers.  TTV began to track and chronicle their observations and chart pervasive problems in order to improve the process and spearhead election law changes.  The organization has uncovered gross incompetence, massive fraud, blatant lack of checks and balances on absentee ballots, and other serious impediments to a free and fair election process.

True the Vote has succeeded in expanding its reach to include citizen-led voter integrity projects in 32 states and has spawned other organizations such as Election Integrity Maryland.

Electoral malfeasance, whether due to incompetent poll workers, fraud, veiled partisanship, thuggery, or anything else that undermines the legitimacy of elections, ultimately undermines the legitimacy of our government and the faith citizens have in their ability to achieve true collective representation.  If dedicated grassroots groups like True the Vote and Election Integrity Maryland can achieve success in spurring the re-evaluation and revamping of the electoral process, we can regain confidence that our elections are free and fair.

Voter Cheating

By James Brody on Tea Party Nation

You know, comrades,” says Stalin, “that I think in regard to this: I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how. (Boris Bazhanov‘s Memoirs of Stalin’s Former Secretary ,1992, only available in Russian.

Russia’s Vladimir Putin is accused of voter fraud and failure to solve problems with health care availability, immigration control, and unsustainable pensions. Sound familiar? Absolutely. Will he lie? Absolutely. But unlike Obama’s ACORN, he will probably admit it.


Deception is everywhere in nature as biology’s Bob Trivers observes in his latest book, The Folly of Fools:

Novelty is valuable if it generates deceptive tricks. It also seeds a long contest between deceiver and deceived: each player changes in response to its partner. Deception, for example, fares well when it is less frequent and poorly when it is not. The relationship, thus, between deceiver and deceived cycles and neither partner will be driven to extinction. (A similar relationship occurs between men and women, hares and foxes, moths and birds!) Humans frequently put up warnings about deception when deception increases and are less worried when deception is rare, fun (lipstick or “the Devil made me do it,” or extraneous to survival. And failure to put up or to respond to warnings suggests there are payoffs either for playing dumb or being dumb.

Trivers, however, does not consider when the deceived also benefits from the deception by an adversary. This is common in human interactions. The ovulating woman believes the playboy’s story wealthy, strong, and loving, both enjoy an unprotected hour, and she takes her growing baby home for boring but predictable Homer to raise. This kind of lie is also apt to occur in politics.

There are several lines of independent evidence that predict deception in the 2012 election:

a)     12/30/11, Voter ID: PA House Bill 934

Eric Holder has ordered his staff not to meddle with cases of voter fraud that involve minorities (J. Christian Adams has written widely about such cases), Salina Zito (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) predicted that PA in November ‘12 will go according to the Philadelphia suburbs, ACORN has both a record for voter scams and new sites in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, our State Attorney General is stepping aside, and there is little public information about Mayor Nutter’s views on this matter. Meanwhile, there is an early February deadline from our Governor as Republicans in the PA legislature attempt to define a list of acceptable IDs and Democrats cry that minorities and old people can’t handle this demand.

 I smell more fraud from a bunch- ACORN – already known nationally for fraud and a February deadline invites some deliberate lapse by the D’sAnd intrusion by Eric Holder would stall our ID program until after ACORN has done their job for BO

b)     Jeffrey Kuhner, Washington Times: BO & Voter ID

“…South Carolina’s legislation provides for free ID cards to be given to anyone who needs it. Not one person – white, black or brown – is discriminated against or discouraged from casting a vote at the ballot box. Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue – upholding state voter ID laws. In the 2008 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision, the high court held that an Indiana law mandating photo identification at the voting booth was indeed constitutional. If it is good enough for the Supreme Court and the overwhelming majority of the states, then it should be for Mr. Holder as well.

“It isn’t. And the reason is simple: The administration is trying to whip up minority frenzy, propagating the myth of widespread ballot suppression…”

c)      Daryl Metcalf, Morning Call: Electoral Integrity (June 18, 2011)

Metcalf is a Republican from Butler County (north of Pittsburgh)

“Pennsylvania has a long and ongoing history of documented voter fraud — pre-dating even the frequently forged signature of Mickey Mouse to at least the election of 1918.

“Of course, no statewide analysis of voter fraud would be complete without briefly documenting the deeply rooted influence of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

d)     Christopher Freind, PA Water Cooler:  No ID, No Vote,… Comprende? (June 21, 2011)

“I am not wealthy, but have recently acquired twenty two domiciles throughout Philadelphia. My real estate prowess has afforded me a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our citizens.

“I can vote twenty-two times.

“You see, I have staked out prime locations, from a cardboard box under the Walt Whitman Bridge to a culvert on Cobbs Creek Parkway to a burnt out shell at 7th and Diamond. Yes, technically, habitating at these locations makes me ‘homeless,’ but I much prefer the term ‘voter-enfranchised.’ When you have such a love of democracy, how can anyone have a problem with people who want to vote multiple times, especially the homeless? (Although, in fairness, dead people should only be able to vote once).


e)     11/7/2011, PA ACORN

“Pennsylvania. ACORN PA has become Pennsylvania Communities Organizing for Change (PCOC) and Pennsylvania Neighborhoods for Social Justice (PNSJ). Both were incorporated on January 8, 2010. On July 26, 2010, PCOC filed for another name — Action United — and the organizations now operate under this name. Current board members and staff of these organizations with former ACORN affiliations include:

• Lucille Prater Holliday, chair (ACORN member and Democratic state house candidate)

• Pat Worrell, co-chair (Chester County, PA ACORN chairman)

• Rosa Chacon, secretary/treasurer (ACORN leader in Harrisburg, PA, profiled in

ACORN’s 2005 annual report)

• Fabrico Rodriguez, board member (executive director of Philadelphia Jobs with


• Craig Robbins, executive director (ACORN regional director in Philadelphia, PA)

• Maryellen Deckard, southwest regional director (head organizer for ACORN PA)

• Jennifer England, communications director (Pittsburg ACORN spokesperson)

Action United is located  at 846 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19130 and 5907 Penn Avenue, Pittsburg(h), PA 15206. The Action United website is www.actionunited.org.


There is even a Secretary of State project in which leftist groups attempt to bias state elections so that “liberal” Secretaries of State are elected. http://truethevote.org/news/does-your-vote-really-count; http://truethevote.org/news/what-is-the-secretary-of-state-project.

There must be some benefit to Republicans if they ignore voter fraud. For example, my acquaintance publishes lists of Republicans who take contributions from unions and refusing to vote against union interests. And conservative Lowman Henry has spoken about the legislative impasse, particularly in the State Senate, produced by about twenty-five who get their money from organized labor.

Thus, Nicole Marrone’s conclusion is still valid as is Christopher Freind’s:

“The city of Philadelphia is known for many things: The Liberty Bell, cheesesteaks, water ice, and Santa Claus-booing Eagles fans. But if research that I conducted in 2006 is still accurate today, Philadelphia should also be known for all-inclusive voting — that is, voting regardless of whether one has a pulse or is otherwise eligible to cast a vote…” http://pjmedia.com/blog/small-sample-of-philly-voter-rolls-reveals-…

There is a bright light on our horizon even though Salena Zito asserted that Pennsylvania electoral votes will depend on turn out in the Philadelphia suburbs:

“Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter didn’t mince words after four kids were shot and three killed in Philadelphia Tuesday night.

“The first way to stop this kind of stuff is for young people to be home when they’re supposed to be home, and for adults not to act like idiots and a******s out in the streets of our city shooting at kids in a car,” Nutter told FOX 29…

A spokesperson for the mayor told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Nutter stood by his statement.

“He said what he said. He was clear about it, and he meant it. He said what everybody else was thinking,” said spokesman Mark McDonald…”


What are Mayor Mike’s reactions to fraud? Does he value “value” above “deals”?

Meanwhile, many Pennsylvanians look to Harrisburg to pass a “Voter ID” law that requires each of us to carry a card with our photo and address on it. Our Governor also says that he needs the law in place by the first week of February if it is to be used this coming November.

On the other hand, I recall my son’s friends in college fattening their wallets by selling bogus photo ID to students who wanted to buy liquor. I’m sure ACORN knows how to do such things.

The ID cards will make cheating a bit more difficult and more expensive for organizers and possibly, but not necessarily, less frequent. And the rest of us will pay the bills for cheaters…

Eric Holder Announces Opposition to Election Integrity Laws

On Tuesday night, I spoke in Austin, Texas, at a rally organized by True the Vote.  It took place on the grounds of the LBJ Library on the campus of the University of Texas.  The rally was in response to Eric Holder’s announcement at the same place two hours later of a concerted Justice Department effort to oppose virtually every electoral integrity measure promoted by Constitutional conservatives and Republicans.

Holder’s announcement will have profound partisan results in the 2012 election because of his professed unwillingness to enforce laws to prevent voter fraud.  Indeed, tonight he made clear his opposition to these laws, such as voter ID and even the requirement to register to vote in advance of an election.

Holder announced broad opposition to voter identification requirements and a ramped up effort to enforce voting registration laws in welfare agencies.  He didn’t make any announcements about enforcing Section 8 of Motor Voter to ensure dead people don’t populate the roles.  He also said that voter fraud “isn’t a huge problem,” perhaps marking the first time the nation’s chief law enforcement downplayed criminal behavior.  Of course that is in vogue in this administration, starting with the New Black Panther dismissal and now with Fast and Furious.

In opposition to Holder, I spoke, as did a group of inspiring patriots starting with Catherine Englebrecht of True the Vote.  Anita Moncrief, Reverend C. L. Bryan, George Rodriguez (head of the San Antonio Tea Party) and Adryana Boyne, national director of VOCES Action followed.  Boyne’s speech defending Texas voter ID may be the first time I heard the policy defended in Spanish.  Moncrief, though, had the line of the night — that “Al Sharpton has a platinum race card.”

Holder laid down markers which will excite his base and disturb law abiding citizens.  He supported restrictions on political speech which will criminalize campaign falsehoods.  He vowed hyper-scrutiny of voter integrity laws such as voter ID and vowed to run states like Texas through a nasty gauntlet on redistricting.  If this doesn’t send a signal to Texas and South Carolina to pull their voter ID laws out of Justice and go to court, nothing else will.  Also in attendance was Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez, a starring character in my book Injustice.

Holder brought along his puppy, Charlie Savage of the New York Times, from whom we can expect glowing sycophantic coverage of Holder’s announcement at any minute at the New York Times website.  Savage is the same reporter who covered purported politicization at the Bush Justice Department.  For this he won a Pulitzer Prize.

PJ Media’s Every Single One series reported on the same story Savage did, except this time on the 113 attorney hires by the Obama Civil Rights Division.  Savage only covered a handful of Bush hires — he had to, otherwise his story wouldn’t work because the Bush DOJ hired scores of liberal activist lawyers.  But the Obama Justice Department gives no quarter to the enemy in hiring, and hired 113 leftists out of 113 openings.  I described in my book Injustice how PJ Media had to sue Eric Holder to extract this information:

During the Bush era, DOJ leaders quickly fulfilled FOIA requests. For instance, in 2006 Charlie Savage, then at the Boston Globe, requested all the resumes of the recently hired attorneys in the Bush Civil Rights Division. The DOJ leadership produced the materials within days, well ahead of the legal deadline—they acted so fast, in fact, that some colleagues and I complained they were rushing. Suspecting we were being set up for a leftwing smear campaign, we urged DOJ officials to protect our privacy while fully complying with the requests. But our concerns were ignored and the information was rushed out anyway, resulting in a slew of slanderous media stories, some attacking us in extremely personal ways, followed by curious questions from our family members about why we were in the news. There was a particularly merciless leftist blogosphere attack on a pair of attorneys who happened to be two of the hardest working and most dedicated lawyers in the entire Voting Section.

After PJ Media obtained the Obama hiring information, Savage, ever the cuddly puppy, wrote a puff piece about the Obama hiring practices.  Gone was his outrage over politicized hiring that he exhibited at the Boston Globe for the Bush DOJ.  That’s what PJ Media is for – reporting on stories the dying dead trees media won’t. Given the scope of the Every Single One series, perhaps PJ Media deserves a Pulitzer too.  If Charlie got one, PJ Media certainly should.  Stay tuned.
