Holy Shit! CNN Shoots…Scores! (genghis)

Somehow, someway, one of the rightwing fascists on our side infiltrated CNN and managed to write this article.

”SEATTLE, Washington (CNN) -- Clifton Mitchell helped register nearly 2,000 voters for the community group ACORN. But not one of them actually existed.”

"I regret it. I paid the price for it," he said.

“Mitchell was convicted last year and spent nearly three months in prison. He's one of the few ACORN workers convicted of voter registration fraud.”


It gets better:
”They took addresses from homeless shelters, used fake birthdays and Social Security numbers and took names from baby books to create voters out of thin air.”

"Every day I'd go to the library and get a newspaper," Mitchell said. "I had one guy who'd go to the phone book. Everyone had different methods."


I still don’t trust CNN, but maybe this cancels out the story they did earlier today (posted by Ace below) about the Republican “operative” sentenced to prison for jamming the Dem’s phone lines. What pisses me off is that they’re just now getting around to focusing on this.


Holy Shit! We can haz road trip?

Added: Yes, the second half of the article tries to downplay the issue that false voter registration translates into actual votes, but ACORN's tactic is to submit all of these fake registrations at the last possible second and overwhelm the already overwhelmed local election officials. Chaos ensues and then we hear the inevitable cry of "Voter suppression!"
