ACORN In Iran?

Although most commentators predicted a close election in Iran, the official results show Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a sweeping victory. There are many allegations of election fraud mostly as a result of the failure to require photo IDs and other voter identification, which permitted multiple voting:
By not requiring voters to present photo IDs and running off more than a million fake IDs in Qatar for use by the hundreds of thousands of loyal "bassij" (voluntary militiamen), the Tehran establishment made it possible for a huge number of voters to cast ballots in more than one polling station and substantially pad Ahmadinejad's support.

The Iranian government also set up a vast number of mobile ballots where voters were not required to provide their addresses. In former elections, bogus votes were uncovered by comparing the numbers cast with the number of registered voters in a given precinct. This kind of supervision is ruled out by mobile stations.

Multiple voting resulting from lack of identification. Sounds like ACORN. More votes than people. Sounds like Minnesota.

Voter identification is the key to preventing voter fraud. Which is why the Department of Justice's refusal to allow states, such as Georgia, to implement identification systems based on alleged disparate impact is so damaging to the credibility of elections.

  1. Seems like the Iranians have more balls than we do- and their stakes are much, much higher- people there actually get executed. Us, not yet. But, I'm actually wondering when the prosecutions start, quite frankly. Anyway, I think we were unused to massive voter fraud in this country. Not anymore. And never again.

  2. Excellent point, and thanks for making it.

  3. It sounds like the people have finally had enough, and it is a great thing. Hopefully, the young people will be able to complete what they have started. It takes a massive amount of courage on their part, and hopefully they will be able to do it with as little or no loss of life.

  4. We cannot allow the ACORN regime to acquire weapons of mass destruction, and must consider all options, up to and including a military invasion of Minnesota, to ensure peace for our allies in the Midwest.
