Former ACORN Employee: More Than Half Voter Registrations Invalid Ron Kessler, Newsmax

More than half the voter registrations turned in by ACORN canvassers during the last election were not valid, according to testimony to be presented before a House Judiciary subcommittee.

If a canvasser was caught committing fraud, ACORN threw the individual “under the bus,” MonCrief said. ACORN employees were briefed on how to deny that voter registration fraud existed, she said.

According to MonCrief, the Obama presidential campaign called her in October 2007 asking for coordination in soliciting donations from people who had already made the maximum contribution to Obama allowed by election laws. MonCrief testified that she was given a massive database of Obama donors who had already reached the limit. Her task was to cull it for potential donors who would then donate to Project Vote, an ACORN affiliate which targets individuals and entities to solicit donations.



     The two-counts that are revealed in the 76 page affidavit that precipitated the arrest of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich on Tuesday is merely the tip of the iceberg in the ongoing investigation into the Governor, Tony Rezko, and others in the well-publicized world of Chicago and Illinois corrupt politics.

     U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald chose his words very carefully at the press conference which outlined what the Government was investigating. First and foremost, the Feds wanted to stop any further actions, aprticularly with regard to the filling of the Senate seat vacated when Barack Obama resigned his Senate position. He further went on to say that no one should draw any conclusions about any of the individuals named within the affidavit, and that the “affidavit” does not imply any wrongdoing by the President-Elect.

     Then there is the responses from the President-Elect himself, wherein he says that “we, I, have had no conversations with the Governor”. This statement, however, completely contradicts the statements, on television, made by Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod on November 23rd, wherein he stated that Obama had discussed several names with Gov. Blagojevich, and that Obama was “fond” of several of the individuals discussed. When questioned on the contradiction, the Obama spokepeople stated that Axelrod was “mistaken.”

      Fitzgerald is known for his thoroughness in his job, and is relentless in making sure that everything is in order. As the new administration begins in the White House next month, Fitzgerald was to be one of the many whose resignations would be requested by the White House. It is now assumed that given the volatile nature of this present investigation, it would be unwise for the Obama team to replace Fitzgerald.

      Does that mean, however, that Fitzgerald will protect the President-Elect as the investigation proceeds? Since there are hours of wiretap recordings, it can be assumed that there is information not yet released that could implicate members of the Obama staff, if not directly to Obama himself. Will Fitzgerald use these recordings, or stop short of any implication of the President-Elect? Going a step further, since the Chicago Police Department has not been able to move further on the murder of Trinity Church Choir Director Donald Young, and the various threats and actions against Larry Sinclair, will Fitzgerald be able to see if any of these other activities have any links in his corruption investigation?

     From a different angle, given that there are allegations about deals for campaign contributions, union endorsements, etc., and given that some of the Obama contributors included “Mickey Mouse”, will the Federal Elections Commission reverse itself, and look into the contributions made to the Obama for President campaign?

     Looks like old fashioned Chicago politics at its best!!

     Ok, so its all legalese and legal jargon, but, if I understand the legal theory, it appears that Philip Berg’s motions today were filed because Sen. Obama’s legal team failed to comply with Berg’s requests for discovery and admissions.

     In the Berg v. Obama lawsuit, Philadelphia attorney Philip A. Berg had filed requests for production of certain documents, as well as admissions of certain statements. In a typical response, the defendants would have filed “denials” to the list of request for admissions.

     Pursuant to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 36(a), requests for admissions are deemed “admitted” if the opposing party fails to respond within 30 days of the request, unless there was an order from the Court to stay the discovery process.

     This is the list of “admissions” that had been requested of Obama, and based upon Rule 36(a), they may now be legally deemed admitted:

  • Admit you were born in Kenya.
  • Admit you are a Kenya “natural born” citizen.
  • Admit your foreign birth was registered in the State of Hawaii.
  • Admit your father, Barrack Hussein Obama, Sr., admitted Paternity of you.
  • Admit your mother gave birth to you in Mombosa, Kenya.
  • Admit your mother’s maiden name is Stanley Ann Dunham a/k/a Ann Dunham.
  • Admit the COLB [Certification of Live Birth] posted on the website “” is a forgery.
  • Admit you were adopted by a Foreign Citizen.
  • Admit you were adopted by Lolo Soetoro, M.A. a citizen of Indonesia.
  • Admit you were not born in Hawaii.
  • Admit you are a citizen of Indonesia.
  • Admit you never took the “Oath of Allegiance” to regain your U.S. Citizenship status.
  • Admit you are not a “natural born” United States citizen.
  • Admit your senior campaign staff is aware you are not a “natural born” United States Citizen.
  • Admit the United States Constitution does not allow for a Person to hold the office of President of the United States unless that person is a “natural born” United States citizen.
  • Admit you are ineligible pursuant to the United States Constitution to serve as President and/or Vice President of the United States.
  •     Also today, the Federal Elections Commission filed a Motion to Dismiss this claim alleging that Philip Berg does not have standing to bring this case. The Judge has not yet ruled on the Obama team’s similar Motion.

         Adding to the flurry of actions going on with just two weeks until the election, the African Press, which has reported that it has a taped conversation between their editor and Michelle Obama, wherein it is suggested that Mrs. Obama makes some strong statements that could be potentially damaging to the campaign, is reportedly arranging with FOX News to release the tapes publically. It is important to note that API is making it clear that there is no monies involved in these negotiations.


          The net result of the Berg filings today is to set the scene for the fact that by admission, Obama is not Constitutionally eleigible to be the President of the United States.
