He's also been a longtime ally of radical group ACORN, which has run into trouble with vote fraud in the past in Kansas City, MO; Wisconsin; Colorado, and, of course, in Washington state.
This year, widely-respected former Senator John Danforth has already accused ACORN of irregularities in its voter registration process in St. Louis.
Now, the ACORN office in Las Vegas has been searched for evidence of vote fraud. And another pro-Obama group is skirting the edge of the law in Ohio. According to the New York Post:
Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked.
The huge effort by a pro-Obama group, Vote Today Ohio, takes advantage of a quirk in the state's elections laws that allows people to register and cast ballots at the same time without having to prove residency.
Is it a coincidence that the allegations are coming from Missouri, Nevada and Ohio -- key swing states this year? Of course not.
