Stolen Election: NY Edition

, Allie Winegar Duzett, Leave a comment

It’s old news that ACORN was involved in fraudulent voting during the presidential election of 2008. However, FOX News recently reported that the Working Families Party, a subsidiary group of ACORN, may have stolen this year’s city and council elections in Troy, New York.

From the article:

Thirty-eight forged or fraudulent ballots have been thrown out, according to records at the Rensselaer County Board of Elections in Troy, N.Y. Enough votes, an election official admits, to likely have tipped the November election to the Democrats.

This is not the first time WFP has struck in an election. Also from the article:

Hillary Clinton garnered 2.7 percent of her total votes from the WFP line when she first ran for Senate in 2000, which increased to 5 percent of her total vote in 2006. In September, Clinton’s former campaign manager for her 2000 Senate run, New York City Councilman Bill DeBlasio, who has been endorsed by the WFP, beat two long-established politicians in the Democratic primary.

It looks like the quest to prevent ACORN and friends from committing voter fraud is still far from being won.  However, there are several groups circulating petitions to get Congress to stop funding the groups.

Hat tip Gateway Pundit.
