After more than 40 years of waging war against America’s democratic institutions, the lawless ACORN gang has finally been brought to justice.
ACORN, the organization that brought Americans the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (the “Motor Voter” law), which makes election fraud a breeze, was sentenced for felony voter fraud in Las Vegas last week.
The nonprofit group famous for turning graveyards across the nation into Democratic strongholds, had previously pleaded guilty to unlawful compensation for registration of voters, a crime in Nevada.
Significantly, this is the first time ACORN itself, as opposed to its individual workers, has been convicted of a crime.
The court fined ACORN $5,000, the maximum allowed under state law. ACORN will probably end up paying nothing for its crimes. When the group filed bankruptcy last November, it declared assets of less than $4,000 against liabilities exceeding $4 million.
Prosecutors said the higher-ups in the group knew two senior ACORN executives were involved in a criminal conspiracy in which voter registration canvassers were illegally offered cash bonuses upon reaching the magic number of 21 registrations in a day.
In what appears to be an inside joke, ACORN officials in the gambling capital of America called the incentive program “Blackjack.”
But Las Vegas Judge Donald Mosley wasn’t laughing at the sentencing hearing.
“It is making a mockery of our election process,” Mosley fumed. “If I had an individual in this courtroom … who was responsible for this kind of thing, I would put that person in prison for 10 years, hard time, and not think twice about it.”
Mosley called ACORN’s crime “reprehensible.”
“This is the kind of thing you see in some banana republic, Uruguay or someplace, not in the United States.”
Not as far as ACORN, which used to employ President Obama, is concerned.
As I report in my new book, Subversion Inc., at least 54 ACORN employees and individuals associated with ACORN have been convicted of voter fraud. Voter fraud is a blanket term coined by lawyers. It refers to fraudulent voting, identity fraud, perjury, voter registration fraud, forgery, and a variety of crimes related to the electoral process.
The radical leftists of ACORN wage war against the democratic system because to them “real” democracy is Marxist mobocracy. It’s only democracy in their eyes if they prevail. If they lose, it’s not democracy: the capitalists stole the election or took advantage of the people because they suffer from a mass “false consciousness.”
