The largest voter fraud case in Washington State history led a few weeks ago to three of the seven defendants on trial pleading guilty. Great news, right? This should teach those who abuse our political system.
But who did the abusing? After all, when one side of the aisle or the other commits a crime, they are identified...unless they are liberals.
No word in this story who is behind the fraud, but a small clue lets us know who was involved.
It was the Lyin' Left.
Three plead guilty in fake voter scheme
Three of seven defendants in the biggest voter-registration fraud scheme in Washington history have pleaded guilty and one has been sentenced, prosecutors said Monday.
The defendants were all temporary employees of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, when they allegedly filled out and submitted more than 1,800 fictitious voter-registration cards during a 2006 registration drive in King and Pierce counties.
No votes were cast in the names of the phony voters. Prosecutors said the defendants committed fraud in order to keep their jobs without actually registering voters.
Hmmm...and just who is ACORN? Are they a right-wing group?
Of course not. They are just another liberal front group.
ACORN says it is a community group, but it is really a multi-million-dollar, multinational conglomerate. Its political agenda is driven by a relative handful of anti-corporate activists. ACORN spends millions of dollars to promote economic policies (like raising the minimum wage), but has admitted that it doesn't always want to abide by them. ACORN advocates for workers' rights and runs two unions, but has in the past fought its own employees' efforts to form a union.
ACORN's history makes for pretty interesting reading. The Clinton Administration found that ACORN was misspending government grants designed to help counsel the poor. Although it seeks minimum wage increases in cities and states across the country -- ACORN sued the state of California to get out of paying its own employees the state minimum wage.
So they are liberals! And the story did not mention that! It figures!
