Someone get to the DUmp!


A Nevada judge on Wednesday gave ACORN, the defunct grass-roots community organizing, the maximum fine for its illegal voter-registration scheme in that state.

District Court Judge Donald Mosley was blunt and unsparing in his criticism of the discredited activist group. Citing the long history of voter registration fraud allegations that engulfed ACORN across the country, he slapped the group with a $5,000 fine for violating Nevada election law during the 2008 presidential election.

Mosley, reading the pre-sentence report, listed a series of voter registration fraud allegations against ACORN workers. He said that if the claims have been true, then "It is making a mockery of our election process. 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," he said. "To me this is reprehensible. This is the kind of thing you see in some banana republic, Uruguay or someplace, not in the United States."

In Nevada, ACORN pleaded guilty to one felony count of unlawful compensation for registration of voters, stemming from an illegal voter registration scheme in its Las Vegas office during in the 2008 race.

The group paid a bonus to workers to sign up 21 or more voters per shift, calling the program "21," or "Blackjack."

I love that he draws a distinction between a banana republic and the USA, when one of the most well known examples of a real life banana republic: Guatemala, was formed and sustained by the USA.

irony is sweet

You are an idiot if you think that an off the cuff remark by the Judge is somehow comparable to a crime committed by a left wing Democratic outfit like Acorn. You may be too ignorant to take voter fraud seriously but most Americans do.

Law and order is meaningless to liberals, it is very apparent in recent news.

Irony may be sweet. Stupidity ain't.
