ACORN helped “Duran-Duran” vote in New Mexico? Fraud also in WI, OH, PA, IN

Posted on: October 20, 2008

Duran-Duran voted in New Mexico Democratic Primary!

According to a post by Amanda Carpenter at Townhall on the topic of ACORN voter fraud in New Mexico:

The Associated Press reported Friday that the New Mexico GOP found 28 people who voted fraudulently in Albuquerque during the June Democratic primary by absentee ballot. One of the ballots was cast from someone named “Duran-Duran”

The GOP’s review was conducted in House District 13 and only included 92 ballots. That means roughly a third of the ballots examined found by the GOP were fraudulent. The New Mexico GOP released 10 of their suspect ballots. They ballots did not contain required identification information such as Social Security numbers, drivers license numbers or birthdates.

“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.”

The Republicans plan to turn over their suspected ballots to election officials Friday.

According to Journal-Sentinel of Milwaukee, at least three persons have already been charged with election fraud including most recent:

A third person in Milwaukee faces charges of election fraud after prosecutors say he turned in 54 fake registrations, including one for a man who died 16 years ago.

Frank Walton, 29, submitted the inaccurate voter forms to the city Election Commission, according to a criminal complaint, with errors that also included fake driver’s license numbers and Social Security numbers.

Walton faces one count of falsely procuring voter registration and faces up to 3 1/2 years in prison and $10,000 in fines if he’s convicted. [sic]

Walton told investigators he was expected to obtain at least 15 registrations per day for CVP. Walton also said he remembered interviewing the dead man, Joseph Scroggins, on Milwaukee’s south side – even though Scroggins’ widow said the man died in 1992.

Walton also told authorities he had been doing door-to-door voter surveys for The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as ACORN, since he left CVP. ACORN’s voter registration efforts also have been the focus of fraud investigations in Nevada, Connecticut, Missouri and at least five other states.

Carolyn Castore, ACORN’s political director in Wisconsin, said Walton never worked for the organization and her workers don’t do voter surveys.

Republicans have been raising fears about rampant voter fraud in Wisconsin for years.

According to an article by Brad Busted in Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ACORN is being challenged by the GOP in several Pennsylvania counties: via a lawsuit filed on Friday, the 17, October.

The suit is being filed early this afternoon, Republican Party spokesman Michael Barley said. It targets alleged voter fraud in Philadelphia, and Allegheny, Delaware and Dauphin counties. It also alleges the Department of State hasn’t provided counties timely access or the ability to search the state’s computer system to look for fraudulent voter registrations.

ACORN officials had not seen the complaint. But at their own news conference, spokesman Ali Kronley called the Republican effort “voter suppression” aimed at keeping blacks, Latinos and low-income people from voting

According to a report by CNN from Lake County in Indiana:

.. the bipartisan Elections Board has stopped processing a stack of about 5,000 applications delivered just before the October 6 registration deadline after the first 2,100 turned out to be phony.

“All the signatures looked exactly the same,” Ruthann Hoagland, a Republican on the board. “Everything on the card filled out looks exactly the same.”

The forms included registrations submitted in the names of the dead — and in one case, the name of a fast-food restaurant, Jimmy Johns. Sally LaSota, a Democrat on the board, called the forms fraudulent and said whoever filed them broke the law.

McCain and Palin have both been campaigning on this issue. Following Mac’s attacks, the FBI is now probing ACORN activities in a number of states. US Sen. George Voinovich (R-OH) has also written to the US Attorney General asking for a probe.

Sarah Palin too joined in the fray, attacking ACORN in Ohio late last week. Speaking at a rally in West Chester, OH Sarah Palin was quoted as saying:

This group needs to learn that you here in Ohio, you won’t let them turn the Buckeye State into the ACORN State.

ACORN says it has helped 1.3 million people register to vote nationwide — 144,000 in Pennsylvania. About 60 percent to 70 percent are “people of color,” officials said, per PT-R

A  comprehensive round up of ACORN’s fraud-fraught activity has been compiled by Jim Holt of Gateway Pundit and it can be read at Pajamas Media. A Rhode Island news outlet, the Providence Journal, has written a strong Editorial warning about ACORN’s voting machine.
