    sorry, I meant to type "Bonner & Associates"...not ACORN. You ACORN freaks should be REALLY upset about Bonner & Associates....


    right?


    Think Progress NAACP-Forgery Group, Bonner & Associates, Has A Decades-Long History Of Astroturf Tactics

    Can't wait to hear all of you people who bashed ACORN for things such as "voter fraud" for recieving false registrations and never registering them....Even though they paid for them....etc....

    This one should have you all MAD AS HELLLL about this display of decieving elected officials and falsly representin us citizens as the voting public. This disgusts me.

    A DC-based consulting firm has been exposed for forging letters in opposition to the American Clean Energy and Security Act. The letters, replete with letterhead and made-up identities, purported to be from Virginian minority organizations including the NAACP. Rep. Tom Periello (D-VA) received multiple letters pressuring him to vote against clean energy reform. According to Daily Progress, Periello staffers discovered that the letters were actually forged by Bonner & Associates. Going through past correspondence regarding ACES, staffers found at least six forged letters purporting to be from Creciendo Juntos, a nonprofit hispanic group, and the NAACP.

    Sound like money grubbing dirtbags. Cut the programs that gove money to people like them and their fellow scum at ACORN, of course the types of election fraud that ARCORN is involved is far worse.

    The fraud was done TO Acorn....they couldn't submit false claims for registration. Now, if they registered illegal and dead people, then went out and voted, I would say thats a crime.

    These dudes are different, the are impersonating NAACP members and using the mail to loby congress falsly.

    sucks......

    anyway, this scheme sucks to the core of our system. These people should be locked away for life, if not worse...This is a crime against our entire process.

    Nah...I ain't spinning crap.

    The ACORN situation is exactly what it is a SCAM....but not on the election process, its a scam on ACORN. It was aloophole in their system that allowed people who registered voters to get paid by volume, not by valid registrations.

    Talk about spin, man......

    This is way worse.....and is a blatant attempt to falsly impersonate citizens in powere to loby our elected representatives.


    PF,

    What would make you feel worse:

    1. Having a member of ACORN attempt to register your great great grandfather in this past year's election? Knowing his vote will never be cast, nor accpeted by the registry.

    2. Having some people forge a letter in your name with a false signature lobbying FOR the ACLU?




    be honest in your answer.
