This in from WSB in Atlanta:

Some Georgians Suspected Of Voting Twice

“This is extraordinarily disturbing,” said Secretary of State Karen Handel.

A team of investigative journalists from WSB-TV in Atlanta, WFTV in Orlando and WFTS in Tampa and WCPO in Cincinnati compared Georgia’s voter rolls with those in Florida and Ohio and found more than 100,000 people who appear to be registered to vote in more than one state, with no government oversight to catch it.

Wonder how “The One” has collected so much money?

Mark Steyn at NRO has the scoop:

Which brings us to the case of Mary T Biskup of Manchester, Mo, who discovered there were scores of small online donations made to the Obama campaign in her name, even though she hasn’t given him a dime. They added up to $174,800, which is a wee bit over the $2,300 limit. This very generous donation was not billed to her own card, but to someone else’s – meaning (as the Post says) “someone appropriated her name”.

Ah, but who? And, if just one unwitting front is responsible for 175 grand of the Obama take, how many other Mary T Biskups are there out there?

Crazy stuff.  Will he be held accountable?

More community organizing fun!

In northern Indiana from NWI.com:

Lake County elections officials acknowledged they have found problems and had to reject a large portion of the 5,000 registration forms turned in recently by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, an activist group that conducted registration drives across the county this summer.

From a Pennsylvania paper, letter to the editor, via FrontPage Magazine:

Given the fact that Acorn has been in the news lately in association with Democratic Party add-ons to the proposed presidential economic bailout package, it might be useful for Springfield residents to be aware of that organization’s activities in our neighborhood. Two years ago, I received a notice in the mail from the Delaware County voter registration office in Media, stating that my request to vote in the county was denied. The document accurately stated my name and my home residence.

Since I had not sent in such a request, and I had in fact been voting in the Commonwealth regularly since 1980, the notice took me by surprise. Instructed to call a number for further information, I soon learned that someone from an organization called Acorn (which I mistakenly assumed was an environmental group) was trying to deprive me of my right to vote, and place someone, presumably of the same name, in the voting booth in my hometown in my place. I probed further and found out that a good number (at least several dozen) of my fellow Delaware Counteans had been subjected to the same experience, and that the District Attorney was planning to prosecute whomever was to blame.

The Detroit Free Press has this nugget:

Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.

The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN’s Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.

Voter Fraud in Madison, Wisconson via Channel 27:

At least seven felons convicted of crimes including cocaine possession and robbery were recruited by a liberal group to register voters in Milwaukee.

The Republican Party says using convicted felons for that work increases the chances of voter fraud.

All seven were designated as special registration deputies in Milwaukee, which allows them to solicit and keep voter registration applications.

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, hired all seven.

The Obama campaign is trying to get more students to vote in Virginia.

Admirable, right?

Wrong.

Students paying out-of-state tuition are being signed up by the Obama campaign to vote as state residents of Virginia.

Michelle Malkin has coverage here.

Here’s the quote from the original article:

Norfolk election officials on Friday reluctantly loosened procedures for registering college students to vote after protests from presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign and an admonishment from state election officials.

So what’s the problem you ask?

Here’s more from the article:

The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia agrees.

“College students are in a unique situation…. They live in two places,” the organization’s executive director, Kent Willis, said. “The state law does not address that properly.”

“If homeless people have the right to vote by choosing their principal residence, college students ought to have the same right.”

Long said she’s now reviewing an application from a student from Savannah, Ga., who pays out-of-state tuition, is declared as a dependent in Georgia and has a Georgia driver’s license and car registration.

“What automatically makes these out-of-state students Virginians?” she asked.

If you pay out-of-state tuition you are not a resident of the state. Therefore you should not be able to vote in that state.  There should be no option.

But the Obama  campaign feels student should have the right to choose.

Naturally, the student in question above- from Georgia- would love to influence the election in a state where it’s close.  McCain is at or above 55% in most polls.

Is this right?

UPDATE:

Here’s what the ACLU says about this:

“Most people have one obvious primary address, and that’s where they register,” added Willis. “But college students, almost all of whom live in more than one place during the course of the year, must decide which address is their primary one. For many, it’s where they attend school—the place they call home for nine months out of the year.”

“While registrars should assist students who are uncertain about where they should register, no registrar should question students who make the choice to vote where they attend school,” said Willis.

So let me get this straight.  A college student can decide to vote in either their home state or the state where they pay out-of-state tuition?
