Democrats...Intent on Stealing Ohio Election

Certainly we are seeing an attempt by Democratic groups to steal the election in many of the battleground states across the country. It appears they are having quite a bit of success.

You have undoubtedly heard of the illegal activities of a group called ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) that is conducting fraudulent voter registration, for the purpose of ultimately illegal voting, in many states. This is just one of the groups that is trying to steal the election and they have been quite prominent in Ohio. The group ACORN actually has quite a lengthy record of voter fraud in Ohio. As an added note, the Obama campaign has paid them (ACORN) for these activities. Of further interest, this is an organization of which Obama used to work for.

Another aspect to this story though is the coordination of this attempt to steal the vote by ACORN and other groups with the Democratic Party in charge of the election in Ohio. Specifically Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner who on Thursday (10/9) has yet another court ruling against her activities in running the election in this state.

Secretary of State appeals ruling, fights effort to validate registrations

(Columbus) - A federal court ruled tonight that Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner violated federal election laws by not taking adequate steps to validate the identity of newly registered voters.

The ruling from U.S. District Court Judge George C. Smith called the identification breakdown "a serious problem" and ordered Brunner to immediately comply with federal requirements to match voter registration data with the information in the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Social Security Administration databases. The court accused Brunner of failing to provide county election administrators with "an effective way to access and review mismatches." She immediately appealed the ruling.

"For some reason, Jennifer Brunner does not want these new registrations checked," said Ohio Republican Party Deputy Chairman Kevin DeWine. "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."

Brunner's effort to fight the court order comes just two days after the Democrat activist group ACORN admitted to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections that the group engages in fraudulent voter registration activity.

Ohio ACORN officials "blamed the elections board for not scrutinizing ACORN's suspicious cards," claiming the group "can't be expected to catch everything."

ACORN is facing similar inquires in other Ohio counties as well as 10 other states. Members of the group's "voter-mobilization arm," Project Vote, regularly advise Brunner on election strategy, even recently issuing a news release that claims credit for Brunner's directive restricting challenges to suspected fraudulent voter registrations. Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama also has strong ties to ACORN, working previously as an attorney and "leadership trainer" for the group.

Unfortunately, the media is in the tank for Obama, and the Democrat Party, and has done very little reporting of this story to aid in the concept of an honest election.

Michelle Malkin has done quite a bit of blogging on this topic and I have seen her a few times on TV.

It appears that the results of this election are already in serious doubt in Ohio and probably many other states.
