In one of the biggest challenges to the new administration, its political allies are stating that they intentionally attempted to defraud the 2008 Presidential Elections. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which is a major recruitment organization for the Democratic Party, is making no bones about their role in the 2008 contest.
"We couldn't chance it." said Jean Kielty, a mid-level member in the Washington state branch in a telephone interview. "We just could not take the chance of another four years of George Bush. We had a moral obligation."
While these claims may be considered scandalous, they are not unprecedented. In 1960, widespread ballot fraud colored the extremely close race between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. It is not known how widespread the ACORN fraud is.
Kielty continued, "Did we tip the balance in one state or a couple? It's hard to say; but I'd like to think that we did."
Kielty was in charge of overseeing three polling places in Washington, and estimates that up to 600 Obama votes "appeared," while 400 McCain votes were "tossed." However, she could not give estimates for the national effects of ACORN's efforts.
"In North Carolina, I know that Sid [Jasper] threw away a lot, but I don't know exactly how many. People may say that this is voter fraud, but the American voter gave up their right to freely choose after choosing George Bush twice."
As of yet, there is no federal investigation of these charges, seeing how they only appear in a no-name blog, are made up, and are labeled as 'satire.'
