BREAKING NEWS::::OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN REQUESTS A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE THE ACORN SITUATION AS RELATED TO REPUBLICAN SMEARING...


Obama is standing up for Voters and New Voters in an a preemptive maneuver, as thousands of New Voters that were being prelabeled in the process as they registered,as being smeared by the Repugs.....the Repugs are already reported in other articles earlier in the week are trying to paint New Voters that are registering as somehow being part of a plot to participate in Voter Fraud via Acorn ( please read the Guardian Articles I posted earlier in the week).Acorn is doing a service by working to register elderly and minorities, this is a matter of Voter Registration NOT Voter Fraud. But the Repugs are already trying to harm the Voting Process, as well as intimidate Voters ( especially ones that pre-registered with ACORN.....imagine the fear that they are feeling , as though they did something wrong ? ).

Bob Bauer,Lawyer of Obama Campaign on CountDown tonight , explains more and more at the LEGAL TIMES here.
This is a snippet from the LEGAL TIMES article:::
"Obama's General Counsel Asks Special Prosecutor to Investigate McCain Campaign's Claims of Voter Fraud

Robert Bauer, general counsel for Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign, sent a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey requesting that special prosecutor Nora Dannehy add recent allegations of partisan misconduct within the Justice Department to her investigation of criminal offenses stemming from the 2006 U.S. Attorney firings.

In his letter, Bauer, a partner in Perkins Coie's Washington office, alleges that Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign and the Republican Party made false claims of voting fraud as part of a Republican effort to influence the presidential election. The letter accuses Republican officeholders of calling on the Justice Department to investigate allegations of fraud, and Justice Department officials of spurring what he called "baseless" investigations.

“History is repeating itself. As Election Day approaches — just as in 2004 and 2006 — Republican Party officials and operatives nationwide, including the candidates themselves, are fomenting specious vote fraud allegations, and there are disturbing indications of official involvement or collusion,” Bauer writes."

( Please remember that Acorn is a reputable organization, that provides a service, and has been organizing and working in Communities for over 30 years..and hopefully this effort will protect their valuable efforts and also reassure Voters that their Votes will not be smeared or disenfranchised, and WILL BE COUNTED....HERE in Ohio that is Critical...And there are 6 others states also involved).

Please read here to learn more about Obama's work with ACORN....
Please read more of his work with ACORN and Disenfranchised, as well as with Whistleblowers. :::
"Obama was part of a team of attorneys who represented the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois in 1995 for failing to implement a federal law designed to make it easier for the poor and others to register as voters.A federal court ordered the state to implement the law.

Obama also wrote a major portion of an appeals brief on behalf of a whistleblower who exposed waste and corruption in a research project involving Cook County Hospital and the Hektoen Institute for Medical Research and alleged that she was fired in retaliation.The case was settled out of court. The county agreed to pay the federal government $5 million, part of which went to the whistleblower, Dr. Janet Chandler. Hektoen agreed to pay $500,000 to the government plus $170,000 to Chandler for wrongful termination.

And Obama was part of a team of lawyers representing black voters and aldermen that forced Chicago to redraw ward boundaries that the City Council drew up after the 1990 census. They said the boundaries were discriminatory."

Thanks Ingrid..

I will post Turley;s Interview off Rachel and also Bob Bauer's interview off Keith....

Obama worked with Disenfranchised voters in Chicago.....he knows WHAT he is seeing...Suppression Efforts...

enigma4ever said...

I am concerned Ingrid- that the Repugs will try to disqualify Obama's Potential Win and have it go to the Supreme Court....that is what I am worried about....the Repugs are again trying to "win" ( aka CHEAT) ....they did it in 2000 and 2004 and they can not believe that they will be denied.....so the corrupt efforts will have to be multiplied...

Rachel Interviewing Brunner:::
( about protecting 200,000 Voters...)

"Battle of the Ballot" in Ohio:::
Voting Suppression is being protected....
HOW Important was the Supreme Court Decision Today..

Targeted lists were being used, and that the Secretary would have no control over, many Innocent People would have been pushed into provisional ballots....
We think this decision protected Voters and decreased Suppression efforts...
They would not get counted on Election night, and that is NOT democracy to shove votes aside.

Rachel asked her what she thought of Rick Davis's Negative Comments meant to her efforts.

She replied her main concern is the Voters...18 days for the rights of Voters to be protected...

Any encouraging words you want to give Ohio Voters.... ( 80% Voter turnout is expected). They can request a paper ballot.....there are many voter protections in place this year.

I will find the Video of this and post it tonight...

Interview of Turley explains more about the ruling Rachel Maddow..
"these do look like suppression methods and tactics...there are grounds to be concerned."

This does look like the previous patterns of previous elections...

Special Prosecutor could also expand her investigation....look for a criminal pattern..if needed...

Rachel asked if the DOJ is not allowed to speak about it this close to the Election...

Turley said that yes, this is not allowed...but any allegations of Voter Suppresion is not allowed...or anything that even hints at it...the Federal Govt is intervening in a way that it has found to be abusive again...

I was cheering when I saw this story on the news. They knew it was coming, they were prepared, and the democratics are fighting back!

Of course my cheering quickly turned to shock and dismay when the Rep. Bachmann on Hardball started calling for a "witchhunt" to see who was pro american and anti american in the senate and congress - at least she is being censure for it.

But I guess with Palin saying she only likes to speak to the "proAmerican" sections of country what can we expect

I've been volunteering at the Obama headquarters near me - at least it helps me keep my sanity amidst all this insanity.

Thank goodness that Obama is trying to protect the right to vote. Republicans constantly harp on voter fraud but the real term is election fraud and the GOP are experts at that. Oh, they flap their hands and get all bent out of shape when Mickey Mouse registers to vote but they know they need to keep the turnout low so they can steal it again for a third time in a row.

PURSEY!!!!
I am so glad to see you....yeah....Obama is working to protect the Vote...I found out when I had problem with my registration...they called me back and offered to have Lawyer meet me at the Election Center......I was stunned..the Obama rep told me "that they have People and Lawyers here- THEY ARE READY- THER ARE 1000'S effected....we are ready to fight to protect people's votes"....it was Oct.6th I was driving to the Election Center to straighten out my registration - I blogged the rest of it that day....but I was really moved- the Obama people are not going to let this Happen again...( I was caged in 2000, and 2004....damnit NOT this time..and NOT this time for Ohio...they have been plenty fucked..) Great to see you....we will get OUR country back...

Lady Rose::
Good for you...thank you for doing that...I have not volunteered this week...been too sick...BUT I have been blogging it..that is all I can do right now....too sick to make phone calls or do much..sorry....Don't worry about Pat Puke-Cannon....he is irrelevant....just a shriveled up old Bigot....like a rotting prune leaking air...let it go....( remember- he worked for Nixon..that was and is the height of his "career:"...)

The whole ACORN thing has been totally blown out of proportion, thanks to the GOP. Mickey Mouse can't show up to actually vote without proper ID.

To me, the real problem with too many phony registrations is that they skew the pre-election polling of registered voters. Since the polls are showing Obama ahead, voters might get complacent.

I'm so sorry about what you are going through in Ohio and other battleground states. I hope it's doesn't turn into a long election nightmare again. We need a blow-out turn-out!

I heard Debbie Wasserman-Schultz today saying Florida is using Optical Scanners this election. Sounds better to me. I don't trust these diabolical diebolds further than I can throw them.

Hope you feel better soon! You'll need all your energy to monitor/observe. One of my sisters did this in NV '04 & wants to do it again this year since NV is a battleground.
