Humboldt County is one of the lesser-populated counties in California; at around 126,500 people. It doesn’t take many missing votes to realize something is amiss. If you thought the flap about voting irregularities had died down, and you haven’t read the BradBlog yet this week, trundle right on over there:

Testimony of Pam Durham Given at the Arlington Meeting

October 23, 2008 by End the Texas Two Step   

As a service for those people who have been unable to attend any of the meetings of the Advisory Committee on the Primary/Caucus, we will post any written testimony that is presented to the committee if we are given a copy of the testimony. If you have presented testimony to the committee and would like us to post it, just send us a copy. We will post all testimony, whether it agrees with our position to End the Texas Two Step or not.

We also call on the committee to put the recordings of the testimony online, so that people who were not present can listen to the recordings.

Below is the testimony of Pam Durham given at the Arlington meeting….

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.
