As David Horowitz explains in Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model, ACORN’s class warriors have
contempt for the election process because they don’t believe in the electoral system as it is constituted in a capitalist democracy. To them, elections are already a fraud—an instrument of the rich, or as [Saul] Alinsky prefers to call them, the Haves. If the electoral system doesn’t serve “the people,” but is only an instrument of the Haves, then election fraud is justified as the path to a future that will serve the Have-Nots.
It should, therefore, come as no surprise that ACORN doesn’t care if the voters it registers are actual people or cartoon characters. “There’s no quality control on purpose, no checks and balances,” said Nate Toler, who worked on an ACORN voter effort in Missouri. “The internal motto is ‘We don’t care if it’s a lie, just so long as it stirs up the conversation.’”
As a matter of policy ACORN never conducted criminal background checks on its voter registration canvassers.
In fact ACORN considered a criminal background to be an asset. In Nevada the group gave voter registration jobs to 59 inmates from a work-release program. Several of the felons who had been convicted of identity theft were made supervisors. “That led some local wags to joke that at least ACORN was hiring specialists to do their work,” the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund wrote.
ACORN cared so little about the integrity of the electoral system that in 2010 its voter mobilization division, Project Vote, put Amy Adele Busefink in charge of its national get-out-the-vote operation. Busefink, who entered a no-contest plea earlier this year for her involvement in “Blackjack,” was under indictment in Nevada while running the 2010 voter drive. She also ran ACORN’s fraud-ridden 2008 voter registration drive in which 400,000 bogus registrations were thrown out.
Although ACORN, the shell corporation that ran the ACORN network, is out of business, its newly renamed state chapters and Project Vote remain in business.
This means that as Election Day 2012 draws nearer, dead Democratic voters will rise from their resting places to reelect President Obama.
