ACORN Fraud Stories Continue

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been tied up at work and was without running water at my house for about a day or so.

This post is just a quick note to keep you up-to-date on the latest ACORN news.

ACORN was found trying to register Mickey Mouse in Florida.
Mickey Mouse tried to register to vote in Florida this summer.

Orange County elections officials rejected his application, which was stamped with the logo of the nonprofit group ACORN.
They claim it wasn't one of their applications, despite the presence of an ACORN stamp. Jennifer Ruben wonders why Obama hasn't been grilled on his ACORN connections:
It is almost inconceivable that Barack Obama should not have been grilled on this –either by his opponent or the media. (The latter is just beginning to cover the story.) Obama’s ties are deep and extensive with an organization that embraces goals and tactics well outside the political mainstream and that has engaged in a pattern of illegal activity usually seen only in RICO indictments. ACORN’s present involvement in coast-to-coast fraud is jaw-dropping and should raise the issue as to whether an Obama Justice Department would vigorously investigate and, if warranted, prosecute this entity and all involved.(A helpful compilation of ACORN’s suspect activities is here.) Put simply, Obama worked for and helped funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars to a fraud-infested, corrupt organization and has yet to explain himself, let alone apologize for the same.
She links, above, to the GayPatriot's list of current ACORN-related investigations. You can find a similar list at Gateway Pundit. They also have an interesting post on how ACORN is specifically canvasing for Obama.

But remember, ACORN swears it is a nonpartisan organization.
Do you have any hope this will negatively impact Obama. I think it will--after he is elected President. Until then, even bringing up the idea that ACORN is corrupt and that Obama gives his consent will be decried as racist.
