Another breathless email from the Opinion Times (and seriously, where did all these email lists come from? I didn’t sign up for them.), warning us of the following:
The “stimulus” package being forced by Nancy Pelosi down the throat of Congress, is laden with pork-barrel spending. This is not stimulus. It’s a major government expansion in the mold of The New Deal and an attempt by Democrats to recover the losses they took in the last 15 years since the Republicans gained Congress in 1994.
But here is an outrage you need to be aware of. Do you remember the radical, left-wing group, ACORN? There are dozens of cases of voter fraud perpetrated by ACORN all over the country. To advance their radical agenda, they have double and triple registered voters as well as submitting fake names.
Just so we get an idea of how pervasive this problem is, I submit to you the following statistics:
Number of votes cast in the 2008 Presidential Election: 129,391,683
Number of cases of alleged voter fraud as stated by the Opinion Times (they claim “dozens,” so let’s say three dozen, and give them the benefit of the doubt and call them baker’s dozens): 39
I think I need to delete my peak wingnut post before it is used against me every day for the rest of my life.
*** Update ***
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said he had allegations last fall of widespread voter fraud – allegations a special prosecutor reported Tuesday were wrong, noting the only voter fraud found was from a Connecticut man who told on himself.
“Ultimately,” Special Prosecutor Michael O’Neill wrote in a report, “the investigators discovered ‘get-out-the-vote’ practices, sponsored by community organizations, which took full advantage of this unique absentee-voting period, but no evidence these practices violated Ohio law.”
“Told ya so,” Tim Burke, chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party as well as chairman of the Hamilton County Board of Elections, said with glee of O’Neill’s report.
