ObamaCare provides millions of dollars in grants to hire community activists and others as “navigators” to assist individuals enroll in health insurance provided by state or federal exchanges and, according to recent reports, register people to vote. In a new rule proposed Wednesday, HHS lays out numerous guidelines for these “navigators”, including paying them up to $48/hour for their work. The rule, guidelines and voter registration effort are a potential vehicle to resurrect ACORN or an ACORN-like entity.
[...] Requirements for “navigators” is that they have no existing insurance licenses or certifications, conflicting with several recently enacted state laws. They also must be attuned to racial, ethnic and cultural sensitivities, understand “underserved communities” and provide translation services for virtually every language. AARP, NAACP and SEIU are prominent members of Enroll America’s advisory board.
One health expert with close ties to HHS told Breitbart News, “The navigator program, as evidenced by the leadership of Enroll America and yesterday’s rule from CMS, will be a jobs program for unemployable Obama For America campaign volunteers and ACORN remnants.”
[...] October 1st is the first day individuals can enroll for a program through the exchanges. The government, as a result, will have to hire and train tens of thousands of workers on the complex subject of health insurance over the next few months. Think of it as an enormous census program with less training for a more complex subject.
The rules allow navigators to come from the ranks of unions, health providers and community action groups such as ACORN and Planned Parenthood. They are required to provide unbiased advice.
Yeah, right. Good luck enforcing that!
In Oregon, there’s a big push to automatically register people to vote when they apply for drivers’ licenses. Not coincidentally, there’s also a push to issue drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens. Oregon is typically a test case for liberal policies that the Left wants to implement nationwide.
Earlier this month, Obama issued an executive order to create a presidential commission “to address issues including long lines at the polls, voter registration and voter access.” Translation: to make sure they register everyone under the sun whether eligible or not, and never check ID to make sure they’re legit.
The 61-page online Obamacare draft application for health care includes asking if the applicant wants to register to vote, raising the specter that pro-Obama groups being tapped to help Americans sign up for the program will also steer them to register with the Democratic Party.
On page 59, after numerous questions about the applicant’s identity and qualification for Obamacare, comes the question: “Would you like to register to vote?” The placement of the question could lead some to believe they have to register to vote to get health care.
[...] In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Monday, Rep. Charles Boustany Jr., chairman of the House Ways and Means Oversight subcommittee, said HHS is overstepping its bounds by a mile.
[...] Boustany, a Louisiana Republican, said the application raises two alarming issues: What does HHS plan to do with all the information it collects on each applicant, and will pro-Obama groups like AARP and Families USA — which might be tapped as “navigators” to sign people up to Obamacare — steer them to register as Democrats. Others have indicated that groups like Planned Parenthood and ACORN could also act as navigators.
Remember – illegal aliens are not ineligible for Obamacare, so they can easily register using this application, and their legal status will likely never be checked.
“This is classic community organizing on steroids — with the taxpayer footing much of the bill,” ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief told Breitbart News. MonCrief further stated:
ACORN solidified its power in whatever community it was in by helping people with government assistance applications and voter registration. After we processed your public assistance application, we knew where you belonged to each government program. When it came time to fill a bus to the polls, the same person that helped you get food stamps or tax advice could show up and press you to go vote. Simply put, your local SEIU chapter or spin-off organization of ACORN will receive government funds and private donations to transition as many people into the Obamacare exchanges as possible – all while keeping tabs of your voter registration data to later run get-out-the-vote efforts. In California alone, the cost of navigators is expected to be in the ‘hundreds of millions of dollars.’
True the Vote and its Latino initative, Voto Honesto, expressed unease with the new arrangement Obamacare navigators will bring, citing the risk of increased voter intimidation in future elections.
“Voter intimidation can take many forms, all of which are felonies,” Engelbrecht said. “This navigator system brings with it the unabated risk that community organizers will attach strings between the public benefit and the recipient’s vote – especially in the minds of the most economically vulnerable among us.”
The election watchdog said it would be expanding efforts in emergent communities to expose such coercive activity in election cycles to come.
“We base our concerns over reports already received from the 2012 Election,” Engelbrecht said. “Our Voto Honesto initiative met a startling number of naturalized Americans in south Texas and Arizona who said their newly-minted citizenship was threatened if they did not vote correctly. The same people who helped register them to vote at the naturalization ceremony later showed up at their doorstep as part of a GOTV effort, pushing them to the polls. That’s unacceptable.”
The White House is mocking the idea that anything untoward is going on here. Of course. Mockery is a weapon for trying to disarm your opponents and put them on the defensive.
Since 1985 Chicago has pioneered new ways to promote illegal immigration. After 1990 the illegal immigrant population in Chicago and the nation skyrocketed. As illegal immigrants flocked to Chicago, a method was needed to get them on the registered voter list. Although 80,000 illegal aliens voted in 1982, the old-fashioned way, through vote fraud; by 2005 both Cook County and the state of Illinoishad moved to allow photo I.D. to be given to illegal immigrants by passing matricula consular laws.
By allowing the matricula consular to function as an official photo I.D., Illinois and Chicago can say they are conforming to any Voter ID requirement. But the Cook County law (most Illinois illegal immigrants live in Cook County) also allows the consulates of Mexico and “any other Latin American country” to issue the consular I.D.s at their discretion. In effect, Illinois has enabled foreign countriesto decide who votes in U.S. elections.
In 1983 an alien born in Belize stated to the Chicago Tribune that he and his two sisters were never required to show any identification when they registered to vote. The matricula consular enables people to reside in Illinois, and once they reside there, they need no ID to register to vote. This “globalization” of voting rights is clearly a violation of the U.S. Constitution, yet has never been challenged in any court during its ten year history. This supports the idea that Chicago’s goal is to attract large numbers of undocumented residents from all countries.
How Barack Obama enabled illegal immigrants to get on voting lists is the heretofore missing story of the actions he took in the 1990s to help expand the number of Hispanic voters.
[...] After he became president, Obama had his Justice Department sue Arizona for passing SB 1070, claiming that immigration is a Federal issue and that SB 1070 would interfere with Federal procedures. Of course he has never sued Illinois for enabling the matricula consular to function as a valid state ID, or sued Cook County for allowing the matricula consular to function as a “valid passport” when a Latin American returns to their native country.
These two actions have the effect of enabling illegal Hispanic immigrants to cross Arizona into Illinois and other states, and vote. From 1990 to 2000, the number of Hispanics of voting age in Cook County, IL increased 54% to 689,383.
Enabling foreign nationals to vote in Illinois allowed the Democrats to manipulate not just local and state elections, but the presidential election as well. This is because the electoral college is not based on votes counted, but on population. The 2000 Census found that in 19 of the 100 largest U.S. cities the only part of the population that is growing is the Hispanic segment. Mexican families have twice as many children as white families. And children are also counted by the Census Bureau to determine the number of Congressional Representatives. The larger the population a state has, the more electoral college members it has. States that are solidly Democratic can continue to extend their influence on the Presidential elections by extending their Hispanic populations. Today, one in four children born in the U.S. is Hispanic.
Right now Democrats are working to make sure they will remain the majority party – permanently.
Legalizing millions of illegal aliens, pushing for automatic universal voter registration, deliberately recruiting and forcing people into government dependency, fighting voter ID laws, engaging in voter fraud, voter intimidation, and other tactics are all designed to make sure they never lose another election. They are determined to have one-party rule.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who halted photo ID laws in South Carolina and Texas before the November election, suggested on Tuesday in Boston that the United States should consider adopting “automatic” voter registration.
This essentially would mean that millions of people who sign up for government benefits but don’t bother to register to vote will be given the franchise. Think of it as Motor Voter on crack cocaine.
It’s the perfect way to grow Big Bird’s Food Stamp Army into an unstoppable force and move America toward the Chicago model of dependency and one-party rule.
Liberals also are talking about getting rid of the Electoral College, which would give vote fraudsters a huge incentive to stuff ballot boxes where their candidates were going to win anyway, such as deep-blue California, Illinois and New York.
Mandatory Voting: Is This The Obama Administration’s Goal?
With legal restrictions on the GOP trying to investigate or stop voter fraud, and no end in sight, the only solution may be to abandon the party altogether and start a new one.
Voting machines suspiciously defaulting to Barack Obama? Buses loaded with strangers appearing at polling stations? Even ballots turning out 100 percent for one candidate in precinct reports?
In short, suspicions of vote fraud?
That’s too bad, because a race-based consent decree negotiated by Democrats against the Republican National Committee a generation ago still has tied the RNC’s hands, and GOP officials could be cited for contempt – or worse – if they try to make sure American elections are clean.
Democrats alleged Republicans were trying intimidate minority voters in New Jersey and brought the legal action. The RNC, inexplicably, decided to agree to a consent decree before a Democrat-appointed judge rather than fight the claims.
The judge, Dickinson Debevoise, appointed by Jimmy Carter, later retired but decided he would continue to control the case. The decision requires the RNC – but not the DNC – to “refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose.”
The rest of the agreement essentially requires the RNC to follow applicable state and federal election laws.
But the section cited above has been used for decades to warn off Republicans from any challenge to evidence of voter fraud in districts with “racial or ethnic populations.”
The law has remained, even though the RNC recently challenged it at the appellate level only to be turned down by Judges Joseph Greenaway Jr., appointed by Bill Clinton; Dolores Sloviter, appointed by Carter; and Walter Stapleton, appointed by Ronald Reagan, in the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
It now is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.
But two election veterans both told WND it still is hurting the fight against voter fraud in the United States.
Attorney James Bopp of the James Madison Center said the threat that the RNC has faced is that someone will allege a violation of the decree, and party officials will be standing in a courtroom on Election Day.
Bopp’s organization was founded to protect the First Amendment right of all citizens of free expression and “to support litigation and public education activities in order to defend the rights of political expression and association by citizens and citizen groups as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.”
Bopp himself has taken part in more than 60 election-related cases, including recounts, redistricting and constitutional law challenges to state and federal election laws.
He said the agreement even today, amid reports of fraud across the country, prevents the RNC from doing any anti-voter fraud activity on Election Day.
“It is way too restrictive,” he said. “It prevents the RNC from working with state parties in conducting voter integrity activities. It has been used by the DNC to harass the leadership of the RNC with false allegations of violations of the consent decree.”
Selwyn Duke asks the difficult questions at American Thinker:
How could Romney lose, especially by such a wide electoral margin?
Maybe he didn’t
At least not legitimately.
When I predicted Obama’s re-election, I stated that, despite our country’s inexorable leftist slide, Romney would still win on Election Day were it not for vote fraud. I explained that the Democrats could steal more than enough votes in crucial swing states to turn the election. And I still believe what I did then: electoral criminality put Obama over the top.
At the time, we heard stories about electronic-machine “glitches” switching Romney votes to Obama ones. And Patrick Moran, son of Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA), was caught on tape facilitating vote fraud while Bridgeport, CT mayor Bill Finch essentially promised to commit same for a political partner in crime.
Since then, the indications of electoral criminality have been overwhelming. First there are the anecdotes, such as the court-appointed Republican poll watchers illegally expelled from 13 Philadelphia polling places in wards that, in most cases, went 99 percent for Obama; the poll observers who noted what they considered vote fraud but were powerless to stop; and the Democrats who actually bragged about voting more than once.
Then there are the statistics, such as this staggering fact: in 59 Philadelphia districts, Romney failed to get even one vote. Final Obama-Romney tally: 19,605 to 0.
Huh? Not even one person voted GOP accidentally? I mean, there even was a Washington, D.C. councilman who inadvertently voted to approve faux marriage, saying that he didn’t know what he was voting for (that would be Marion Barry).
Next, consider this report from The Columbus Dispatch:
More than one out of every five registered Ohio voters is probably ineligible to vote.
In two counties, the number of registered voters actually exceeds the voting-age population: Northwestern Ohio’s Wood County shows 109 registered voters for every 100 eligible, while in Lawrence County along the Ohio River it’s a mere 104 registered per 100 eligible.
Another 31 counties show registrations at more than 90 percent of those eligible, a rate regarded as unrealistic by most voting experts. The national average is a little more than 70 percent.
[...]Of the Buckeye State’s 7.8 million registered voters, nearly 1.6 million are regarded as “inactive.”
Understand the significance. Years ago I was contacted by a Washington, D.C. community leader (who’ll remain anonymous) who told me that he had “done some computer work for several candidates over the years in DC” and had conducted his own study of urban vote fraud. He said that inner cities’ great transiency ensures that any given large metropolis will have a great number of voters who no longer live in their precinct of registration. These areas also have Democrat operatives known by the get-out-the-vote term “block captains” or “apartment captains,” people who know the lay of the land and thus what registered voters have left town. So all they need do then is vote for these people or have others do so. This is very easy, too, with few voter-ID laws. And this is why Democrats oppose these laws so vehemently.
Now consider that Obama “won” Ohio by 100,000 votes. This means that to flip the state, Democrat surrogates had to illegally “activate” only 6.25 percent of its 1.6 million inactive voters.
Note also that Ohio secretary of state Jon Husted did ask Eric Holder’s DOJ for help negotiating conflicting federal laws pertaining to the purging ineligible voters from the rolls. The DOJ’s ultimate response? “No comment.”
Yet a voter doesn’t even have to be inactive, just disengaged. For example, when the aforementioned Patrick Moran offered advice on surrogate voting, he told an undercover reporter to masquerade as a pollster and call a targeted individual to make sure he wasn’t planning to vote. And this is nothing new. In fact, liberal leg-thriller Chris Matthews himself admitted that it has been going on for years.
Sadly, it doesn’t appear that Romney is willing to challenge any of these shenanigans. He prefers to play the nice loser.
The 1977 “Community Reinvestment Act” laid the groundwork for racial bias in lending. Banks were forced to fulfill racial quotas - even if that meant relaxing lending standards – or face fines and shake-down campaigns from the likes of ACORN activists.
Now Obama is expanding racial bias to nearly every industry:
If your organization has a policy or practice that doesn’t benefit minorities equally, watch out: The Obama administration could sue you for racial discrimination under a dubious legal theory that many argue is unconstitutional.
President Obama intends to close “persistent gaps” between whites and minorities in everything from credit scores and homeownership to test scores and graduation rates.
His remedy — short of new affirmative-action legislation — is to sue financial companies, schools and employers based on “disparate impact” complaints — a stealthy way to achieve racial preferences, opposed 2 to 1 by Americans.
Under this broad interpretation of civil-rights law, virtually any organization can be held liable for race bias if it maintains a policy that negatively impacts one racial group more than another — even if it has no racist motive and applies the policy evenly across all groups.
Obama has a long history of punishing producers in his quest for minority justice.
State Sen. Barack Obama and his radical mentor and friend Fr. Michael Pfleger led a protest against the payday loan industry demanding the State of Illinois to regulate loan businesses back in January 2000. (NBC 5 Week of January 3, 2000)
In his next term Obama is going back to his roots as a community organizer.
I still don’t know what to make of this. There’s no evidence that it occurred on a nationwide scale…only a few precincts. Still, many of those precincts are the most crucial in the country, and the Obama campaign knew that.
I can’t believe President Obama’s luck. First, he received over 99% of the vote in districts where GOP inspectors were illegally removed. Next, he won 100% of the vote in 21 districts in Cleveland. Well, he’s gotten another lucky break!
Mr. Obama won Wood County in Ohio this year. That’s right, Mr. Obama won the majority of Wood County’s 108% of registered voters. That’s not a typo.
In 2012, 106,258 people in Wood County are registered to vote out of an eligible 98,213. But it certainly must all be a coincidence, right?
Pundit Press also reports that St. Lucie county – the same county where there was evidence of voter fraud in the race for Allen West’s congressional seat – had a remarkable 141.1% turnout, in favor of Obama:
Out of 175,554 registered voters, 247,713 vote cards were cast in St. Lucie County, Florida on Tuesday. Barack Obama won the county.
When faced with the astronomical figures, Gertrude Walker, Supervisor of Elections for St. Lucie County, said she had no idea why turnout was so incredibly high. She was flabbergasted, saying, “We’ve never seen that here.”
Sadly, this kind of ballot-box stuffing could have been overcome if Republican voters had simply bothered to show up:
“This is the most important election of our lifetime.” That was the ubiquitous rally cry of Republican leaders. The country yawned. About 11 million fewer Americans voted for the two major-party candidates in 2012 — 119 million, down from 130 million in 2008. In fact, even though our population has steadily increased in the last eight years (adding 16 million to the 2004 estimate of 293 million Americans), about 2 million fewer Americans pulled the lever for Obama and Romney than for George W. Bush and John Kerry.
[...] Somehow, Romney managed to pull nearly 2 million fewer votes than John McCain, one of the weakest Republican nominees ever, and one who ran in a cycle when the party had sunk to historic depths of unpopularity. How to explain that?
The Democrats’ attempt to steal the election is already well underway.
Project Veritas caught this image inside an undisclosed polling place:
Notice anything strange?
What is a uniformed law enforcement officer doing standing next to a large color photograph of President Obama?
Not enforcing the law, that’s what.
It’s illegal to promote any candidate or measure within 100 feet of a polling place, but this isn’t the only location where this is happening.
In Chicago, a voter standing in line snapped this photo of an elections judge wearing an Obama baseball cap:
“This photo, taken by a voter this morning at the Ward 4, Precinct 37 polling place (1212 South Plymouth Court, Chicago), shows an election judge checking in voters while wearing an Obama hat,” a source writes. “Chicago’s 4th ward is home to President Barack Obama.”
The voter who took the photo says: “Woman in front of me also given an extra ballot.”
Dan Joseph of MRC.tv posted this photo of an Obama poster at a Florida polling station that read “Change the atmosphere”:
In Philadelphia, an enormous mural of Obama was featured on the wall of a polling place. Pollsters covered up the face with several posters after an order from a judge, but left the logo and quote visible:
The judge’s order followed a wave of complaints from Republican officials concerned the giant image of the president could influence voters at the site, a school in Ward 35.
The mural, positioned behind the voting machines, contains the words “change!” and “hope,” along with a quote from the president and painting of him. Poll workers only covered up part of the mural, though, leaving the Obama campaign logo and other parts of the image visible, as well as the Obama quote.
Poll workers claimed only the face had to be covered.
[...] “It is an absolute disgrace,” said Shannon Royer, deputy secretary for external affairs and elections in Pennsylvania. “Election materials and electioneering inside the polling place are prohibited by state law.”
The judge also had to issue an order to force Democrat election judges to reinstate around 70 Republican election officials that they had blocked or ejected from the polling place.
Also in Philadelphia, the New Black Panthers have returned to intimidate voters once again, after Eric Holder’s Justice Department let them off the hook for the same illegal behavior in 2008:
Breitbart reports that retired Navy SEALS and Special Forces are heading to the polls to make sure no voters are intimidated from entering a polling place to cast their vote.
In Detroit, a woman waiting in line to vote claims she was punched in the face by an Obama campaigner when she asked him to stop campaigning near the polling place.
In Virginia, a rormer GOP official claims that when he arrived at the polls to vote, he was told that he had already voted absentee. When he told them that wasn’t the case, he was given a provisional ballot, but he has no way of knowing if it will be counted, or who ordered an absentee ballot in his name to vote for him.
Clearly, Democrats are worried about losing this election, and they only way they know how to win is to cheat.
With his approval numbers in the dumps and several swing states leaning to Romney, the only way Obama can win is through electoral fraud. And that’s exactly what his ACORN pals (who were responsible for the chaos in Florida in 2000) are prepared to do.
Imagine going to vote for your presidential candidate and pushing the button on a touch-screen voting machine — but the “X” marks his opponent instead.
That is what some voters in Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Ohio have reported.
Fox News has received several complaints from voters who say they voted on touch-screen voting machines — only when they tried to select Mitt Romney, the machine indicated they had chosen President Obama. The voters in question realized the error and were able to cast ballots for their actual choice.
“I don’t know if it happened to anybody else or not, but this is the first time in all the years that we voted that this has ever happened to me,” said Marion, Ohio, voter Joan Stevens.
Stevens said that when she voted, it took her three tries before the machine accepted her choice to vote for Romney.
The RNC is demanding that the machines be re-calibrated before the election to eliminate the “glitch.” Interestingly, there have been no complaints of machines accidentally changing Obama votes to Romney (things that make you go “hmmm…..”).
In Ohio, where the race is neck-in-neck, busloads of Somali immigrants were reportedly brought into the polling stations by Democrat “volunteers,” who showed them how to pick the Democrat candidates all the way down the ticket. They could not speak English and it was doubtful that many of them were even citizens.
In North Carolina, one Democrat bragged openly on Facebook about how he has voted four times already, and plans to vote again on election day:
In Texas, poll watchers have reported that the NAACP literally took over a polling place in Houston, moving people they chose to the head of the line while poll supervisors did nothing.

Another victory for citizen journalism, going after the stories the mainstream media refuses to investigate.
You can always count on Texas to step up to the plate when state sovereignty is at stake.
A U.N.-affiliated group called OSCE says it intends to send observers from other countries to observe our elections here in Texas. Yes, you read that right. A UN group is coming here to Texas. It just boggles the mind. Well, our Attorney General, Greg Abbott is having none of it.
[...] Elections and election observation are regulated by state law. The Texas Election Code governs anyone who participates in Texas elections—including representatives of the OSCE. The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place. It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance. Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.
The OSCE was not happy about that letter. Too bad. Don’t mess with Texas.
Gov. Rick Perry tweeted this in support: “No UN monitors/inspectors will be part of any TX election process; I commend @Txsecofstate for swift action to clarify issue.”
Texas authorities have threatened to arrest international election observers, prompting a furious response from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
“The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”
We gave up all obligations to foreign powers when we issued the Declaration of Independence. Whatever they may claim, the US is not obligated to allow foreigners to interfere in our election process.
The belief that America can’t handle it’s own elections is so abhorrent that even if the left’s request for assistance from the OSCE is a stunt, they should be massively ashamed of themselves. There is a primal First Principle above all others: Citizens are capable of governing themselves. We have federal, state, and local laws to deal with any concerns expressed by either side about the fairness of the vote. The idea that these laws are not adequate is absurd.
Therefore, the only possible explanation for bringing in outsiders to “monitor” the vote is not to ensure a fair election, but to try and intimidate their political opponents. [...]

Now UN activists are trying to “monitor” American elections to look for bogus “voter suppression” from conservative groups who support voter ID laws.
The charges of voters suppression from these so-called “civil rights” groups are completely unfounded – a disgusting ruse to hide liberal voter fraud by providing a lame excuse for not having to show ID at the polls.
But even if there was a reason to suspect voter suppression, foreign United Nations activists have NO RIGHT to be meddling in our elections. That is the job of American citizens and law enforcement, NOT the UN.
We are NOT subject to foreign powers and their bogus “human rights” (read: anything that doesn’t fit into their One World Socialist State) agenda.
Monitors from the United Nations-affiliated group Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) will be monitoring the activities of conservative groups at polling places in the United States this November, The Hill reported Saturday.
Alexander Bolton wrote that the monitors will be “looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week.”
The term “voter suppression” is the phrase often used to describe efforts at eliminating voter fraud.
According to Bolton, 44 monitors from countries like Germany, France, Serbia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan will “monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.”
The move has conservatives alarmed, even though the OSCE has sent observers to monitor U.S. elections for years.
The reason conservative-leaning groups like True the Vote are concerned is that liberal organizations like the NAACP and the ACLU claim that conservatives are engaged in “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”
“These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations,” True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht told The Hill. “The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections.”
We have our own election laws and our own enforcement system, which was created by the people, for the people, and is accountable only to the American people – NOT to unelected foreign bureaucrats!

James O’Keefe has gotten undercover footage of what the Left insists doesn’t exist: Obama campaign staffers assisting people to vote more than once:

James O’Keefe has done it again — this time capturing video of a paid Obama Organizing for America director in Houston, Texas, assisting a double-voting scheme directed toward Florida. In the video, an undercover Obama “volunteer” tells Organizing for America’s Stephanie Caballero that she wanted to vote twice to help reelect President Obama.
The undercover “volunteer” tells Caballero, “I’m going to vote by ballot and then I have mine here too.”
After the volunteer tells Caballero her plan, Caballero volunteers to help the double voter get the forms to request an absentee ballot in Florida. “I’ll print that out and you just have to mail it back,” Caballero says.
The undercover “volunteer” says, “I don’t want to get in any trouble, but like I said, if no one’s gonna know.”
The paid Obama Organizing for America director’s response: [Laughter] “Oh my God this is so funny! It’s cool though!”
The response from the campaign staffer should have been: “That’s illegal. I’ll have no part in it.” But alas, the video reveals otherwise.

On thing’s for sure: dogs won’t be voting for Obama.
Despite being dead for two years, Mozart, or “Mo,” as he was called by his owner, Tim Morris, recently received voter registration forms in the mail, the Huffington Post reported Tuesday.
“I opened it up and looked at it and I just laughed,” Morris told WSLS. “I thought it was a joke at first and it turns out it’s real.”
The forms were sent to the Bedford County, Virginia, residence by the Voter Participation Center, a nonprofit organization that the Huffington Post said “buys mailing lists and sends voter registration forms predominantly to young people, minorities and unmarried women.”
According to Morris, Mozart would have celebrated his 18th birthday last year, making him eligible to vote in many states if he were a human.
“This could help explain why the Morris’ dog Mozart didn’t receive a registration form until now, since he would have been 18,” WSLS reported.
The envelope was addressed to Mo Mozart with a picture of a sticky note that read: “Mo Morris — Please fill in boxes 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7.”
The Virginia Board of Elections told WSLS “they’ve received similar complaints but since the Voter Participation Center is a private organization they can’t stop them from sending voter registration forms.”
How much you wanna bet the “Voter Participation Center” used to be ACORN and just changed their name to continue their dirty work?
