More ACORN Fraud--This Time in Missouri

Once again the community organizer group ACORN has been caught behind a number of bogus voter registrations. This time it happened in Kansas City, Missouri. Via Yahoo! News/AP:
Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by an advocacy group that has been accused of election fraud in other states.

Charlene Davis, co-director of the election board in Jackson County, where Kansas City is, said the fraudulent registration forms came from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. She said they were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote.

"I don't even know the entire scope of it because registrations are coming in so heavy," Davis said. "We have identified about 100 duplicates, and probably 280 addresses that don't exist, people who have driver's license numbers that won't verify or Social Security numbers that won't verify. Some have no address at all."
When is enough enough? ACORN continues to get caught faking voter registrations. They always occur in urban areas of battleground states. Every time, they ACORN organizers cry foul and say "we are honorable!" Bullshit.

It's clear to anyone reading this blog that I want John McCain to win in November. If he does, I'll be pleased. If he doesn't have enough legitimate votes to win, I'll be disappointed. But I've never for a second considered trying to work some voter fraud in the rural areas here in Colorado, to ensure that this state stays red. Presidents come and go. Some make you proud, others make you cringe. But the system is above all of them. It needs to stay fair and honest lest democracy becomes a joke.
