ACORN/Pro-Obama Ohio Secretary of State's Voter Fraud Illegal, Judge Rules

Brunner's ballot policy illegal, judge rules

Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is breaking federal law by not giving county elections boards the chance to determine whether new voter registrations are fraudulent, a federal judge ruled this evening.

"It is hard to imagine a public interest more compelling than safeguarding the legitimacy of the election of the president of the United States," said Judge George C. Smith of U.S. District Court in Columbus in upholding the Ohio Republican Party's request for a court order.

Brunner's office said she is filing an immediate appeal with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Smith, appointed by President Reagan, said the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requires states not only to verify the addresses and other identifying information provided by newly registered voters with the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the federal Social Security Administration, but also to provide counties with the names of new voters whose records did not match.

Brunner's office had been doing the computerized verification, but the GOP argued that Brunner had not made the names available to county elections boards. The judge gave her a week to comply.

The judge said he lacked the authority to order the counties to clean up the voter rolls once they had the list, but he noted that Ohio law permits challenges to absentee ballots.

Meanwhile, authorities in Greene County are seeking records on all 302 people there who took advantage of a six-day window in which Ohioans could register to vote and cast a ballot at the same time.

County Prosecutor Stephen Haller and Sheriff Gene Fischer, both Republicans, are seeking voter-registration cards and change-of-address forms from the county board.

Haller acknowledged that he was not aware of specific fraud accusations but said the sheriff acted on general complaints about the possibility that students might vote twice - once at home and once at school. The county includes several colleges and universities, such as Cedarville, Central State, Wilberforce and Wright State. Democrat Barack Obama's campaign targeted college campuses in a push to sign up new voters.

Haller is the ex-law partner of Mike DeWine, the former GOP U.S. senator who is chairing Republican John McCain's Ohio campaign.

In his 16-page ruling, Smith cited the "millions of qualified electors across the state of Ohio whose confidence in the electoral process will be undermined if new voter registrations are not verified in accordance with (federal law), and if unqualified individuals are permitted to cast votes. This would demean the voting process and unlawfully dilute the votes of qualified voters."

Brunner said in a statement that her office "will do everything within its power to ensure that the state's 88 county boards of elections can continue to allow early voting to proceed uninterrupted and to assist them with their preparation to ensure a smooth election for the voters of Ohio."

Smith specifically cited questionable activity of one group that registered thousands of new Ohio voters: the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

Ohio Republican Deputy Chairman Kevin DeWine said the ruling spoke volumes about Brunner, a Democrat.

"Her refusal to comply with federal law raises serious concerns about her ability to objectively oversee this election. It's especially troubling in light of her connection to ACORN and that group's stunning confession this week of fraudulent registration activity happening right here in Ohio," DeWine said.

An ACORN representative is on a Brunner advisory committee, while Republicans say Obama has "strong ties" to ACORN, serving in the past as an attorney and "leadership trainer" for the group.

Within three hours of the ruling, DeWine sent out a GOP fund-raising appeal, saying, "Please contribute today and help us fight the legal effort by Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner and her Democrat allies to let voter fraud go unchecked."

Earlier in the day, national Republicans turned up the heat on allegations of voter-registration fraud by ACORN.

Sean Cairncross, chief counsel for the Republican National Committee, called ACORN a "quasi-criminal organization" in a conference call with reporters.

He pointed to past legal problems for ACORN, which registers low-income, minority and young voters, and press reports about bogus registration cards being submitted this fall in Ohio and several other states.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, for example, reportedly is investigating about 50 duplicate or fictitious forms submitted by ACORN. Group leaders reportedly have told county officials they can't stop all fraud. The group's headquarters in Las Vegas also was raided recently amid reports of phony voter registrations, some of which simply listed the names of Dallas Cowboys players.

Franklin County had problems with ACORN in 2004 after authorities discovered dozens of voter registration forms with fake names or false information. A part-time worker for the group was indicted on charges he forged a registration form.

So far this year, officials said they have had 11 challenges to new voter registrations, and about half had been submitted by ACORN. Elections Director Michael Stinziano and Deputy Matthew Damschroder said it's impossible to know how many bad registration cards might get through.

But Damschroder, a Republican, said ACORN has been "markedly better" in the county since 2004, and there's no evidence of anyone casting a ballot using a fraudulent registration.

Asked for a response, ACORN spokesman Charles D. Jackson wanted questions submitted in writing but still didn't respond.

Democrat Official Joins Pro-Obama Voter Fraud
08:14:44 am, Categories: General
A federal judge has found Democrat and pro-Obama Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner guilty of violating Ohio election laws. ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) voter fraud is running rampant in Ohio and Brunner has tried to stop any and all investigations into said fraud. Note: ACORN has previously confessed to Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Board of Elections that they know they are committing fraud and blamed the election board for not catching them!

Even as ACORN is, currently, being actively investigated in between 10-15 states (the numbers seem to increase every day), Brunner has been instrumental in attempting to block any checking of ACORN’s bogus registrations. And there are increasingly persistent rumors that Democrat leadership is affecting anything and everything—including rigging the presidential elections nationwide—in order that their candidate Barack Obama is elected. This latest Brunner corruption would tend to prove the rumors correct or, at the very least, lend a great deal of additional credibility to them. Congressional Democrats have even submitted (and continue to submit) multiple bills—at least one of which was passed—to fund ACORN with millions of dollars. Note: This is the same ACORN that strong arms banks to provide mortgages to low-income borrowers. How do they mold their strong arm tactics? They protest outside of the targeted banks, in their lobbies, protest at the homes of bank officials and have even broken into their private offices. Remember that Obama was ACORN’s original “trainer.”

Brunner joins the ever-growing list of Democrat officials who are ignoring the law and attempting to intimidate voters into voting for Obama. That list includes—but is not limited to—Democrat St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch and Democrat St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce who were caught on video saying they were part of the Obama “Truth Squad” and would prosecute anyone telling what they and the Obama campaign considered to be lies about their candidate. Pennsylvania Democrats Governor Ed Rendell, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and former Democrat Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack have joined in forming additional ‘chapters’ of the Obama Truth Squads.

Dire Note: Said “truth squads” are eerily reminiscent of at least two other tyrannical leaders who plied their trades in both Germany and Russia.

Obama is also disallowing any anti-Obama signs at university rallies—most recently at Virginia’s University of Mary Washington. In other words, no more free speech with an Obama administration. This goes way beyond Socialism (did you know Obama was a member of the Democrat Socialist New Party in the 1990s?) and takes us directly into a Communistic-Stalinist regime. So, Obama may just win the election for POTUS via concentrated Democrat aided and abetted voter fraud –they have already been instrumental in destroying the US if not the world economy.

All that is required to find out about this man Obama is some searching. It simply requires a little work. Some of his corruptions have been scrubbed from the internet but, some of the previously “missing articles”—see below—have been recovered.

Barack Obama is the most dangerous and frightening presidential candidate in US history. If he commandeers the presidency of the United States, we will have no way to vote him out at the next election. His voter fraud group ACORN will have additional millions of dollars allocated to it and there will never again be honest elections in the USA and no doubt his “Truth Squads” will have become an Obama law enforcement agency. He has already shown us with his current truth squads and University appearances that any and all opposition-to-him (IE free speech) will be banned.

All anyone has to do is open their eyes and ears to what this man says and—then—what he actually does. We are in the most hazardous time in our country’s history. If we do not choose to fight the looming betrayal and oppression we will die. It is what it is.
