A.C.O.R.N.- "Down but not out.."

A.C.O.R.N. is attempting to re brand itself.

In Arkansas, they are the "Arkansas Community Organizations." In Minnesota they go by "Minnesota Neighborhoods for Change."

Pretty slick!

Amazingly, the organization has rehabilitated itself. This can be attributed in part due to the friends on Capital Hill and in the Obama White House.

According to Judicial Watch investigative findings, definitive documents proving that the Obama Justice Department has already shut down federal investigations into A.C.O.R.N. voter registration fraud.

In itself, this is a remarkable development. It is remembered that Jame O'Keefe's clutch piece of investigative work  revealed Lavelle Stewert and the 2009 scandal. The corruption of the organization became painfully apparent. Smart money would have considered it a death warrant. When the U.S. Census Bureau severed its ties to A.C.O.R.N., it appeared that the game was up. Not so! It's merely a matter of "moving across the street, changing the name and starting afresh."

The idea behind A.C.O.R.N. is to cheat. Never was this more obvious than in the Coleman-Franken Senate race in Minnesota in 2008. Franken allegedly won by 312 votes. But how many times did they count and recount these votes? How many were disallowed? What were the political affiliation of those on the Minnesota Supreme Court?

Unfortunately, this is not the first time there have been key elections that held clouded outcomes. Two that come to mind are the 1960 Presidential election and the question of Chicago votes. The more recent dispute happened in 2000 in Florida. The country survived but in both cases, the victor emerged slightly tarnished.

Our voting process must maintain integrity at the highest level. We must never have another Coleman Franken election. We cannot have groups like A.C.O.R.N. in existence. For the sake of a unified America, we must have a fool proof system in place that maintains 100% credibility. Which brings us to the question of "is this sufficiently serious to consider voter identification cards?"

I think that it is. When voters are required to present I.D. cards that bear both a photo and a thumbprint, cheating will be difficult, although not impossible. To eliminate it totally the answer is "voting booth retinal scans."

Are we kidding?

I don't think so. To totally eliminate voter fraud, the combination of I.D.'s with thumbprints and photographs, used in conjunction with voting booth retinal scans will guarantee voting integrity. And accurate results! We will never need to worry about A.C.O.R.N. and other "rogue organizations" attempting to undermine our system.

America is the leader of the free world. What we do influences so many souls world wide. We simply cannot allow anyone or anything to compromise our process. To some, these options may be considered drastic. But elections such as the 2008 Minnesota Senate election should serve as a wake up call to those who still don't feel that voter fraud is a problem.
