Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now


My son in law informs me via Factcheck that ACORN volunteers are more likely paid $8 per hour.

Acorn tries to gather 20 signatures per person per day. Therefore, in the case of Harris County this would mean 10,800 rejected signatures were collected @ 20 per day for a sum of 540 days. Assume 8 hours per person at $8 per hour for a sum of $64 per day. $64 X 540 days equals $34,560 spent in Harris County for rejected signatures!

There are 254 counties in Texas.

Whether these monetary figures are close or not, they are worth closer review. The point is still that a 31% rejection figure is a very sloppy number. If voter registration is the only mission of ACORN, they are failing.

Read this article from Capitol Annex (CA) HERE.

Assume for the moment that ACORN has done nothing wrong in Harris County. Assume likewise, that Harris County also did nothing wrong. Let’s look as the figures reported in the above article from CA in another way. (more…)

McCain/GOP ‘Voter Caging’ Underway in Florida

Local Democratic Party Chair Seems Clueless About Republican Attempt to Disenfranchise His Voters…

From the St. Petersburg Times…

[…The mailings sent to registered Democrats appear to be classic “caging” letters, marked as “Do Not Forward”, so that they will then be returned to the GOP if there is any problem with delivery. Those returned letters will likely then be used as a basis to challenge the legitimacy of those particular voters on Election Day….

The first-class GOP mailing has a “Do not forward” instruction on the envelope, meaning they will be returned to the GOP if a recipient has had mail forwarded, perhaps to a summer address, or has moved. (more…)

Texas Voter Registration Currently Ends Oct. 6th

When one of my daughters lived in Leander, Texas, for several years, she and her husband often had some trouble voting. Even though they registered and lived in the same place, they found that their names were not on the voter list. This happened several times. After the first experience, and the day of the second, she called the registrars office to confirm that they were indeed on the list. However, when they showed up to vote, they had to argue with the poll that they were still registered.

I add this small bit of family experience to the ether. I ask you to consider Lynnette Long’s growing compendium of election fraud in Texas, in line with the following: I just went on line to the Montgomery Co. website in Texas and it appears their server is down. This is probably due to the power outage. However, I think we must anticipate the possibility that the general election vote will be affected by Ike.

It appears that voter registration for the General Election currently ends in Texas on October 6th!!  This will not be a lot of time to begin to recover from all the damage Ike is currently inflicting. Re-registering, or assuring you are still registered, may not be at the top of your priority list right now.  However, I urge you as soon as you are able, to call your registrars office or go online and ascertain your status, and print a pdf copy if you need to. The State of Texas should make accommodation for this event.
