Minn. Recount Head ACORN & Soros Ally

(This was first posted on 11/8)

In the Coleman-Franken Senate recount battle developing in Minnesota, almost all media accounts fail to mention that Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, who largely controls the process, is not only a liberal Democrat, but also an ally of ACORN and liberal philanthropist George Soros.

Even fewer media outlets report the fact that both Ritchie and fellow Democrat Al Franken were endorsed by ACORN. Ritchie, like so many liberals, is dismissive of electoral fraud allegations in general. He failed to investigate claims by a conservative group about voter roll irregularities. (See "SOS in Minnesota," American Spectator, Nov. 7, 2008)

The Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune doesn't mention Ritchie's affiliations. Nor does an ABC News story, a story by an ABC News affiliate in Duluth, a Minneapolis-St. Paul FOX TV station's story, or a New York Post story.

An AP story mentioned Ritchie was a Democrat but left out the ties of Ritchie and Franken to ACORN.

Will there be cheating?

Who knows, but as the murderously astute Joseph Stalin once remarked, "The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."



Vadum has more at Capital Research Center where he’s a senior editor.

What Vadum’s reporting should trouble us all, including those liberals who say they’re for fair elections.

Let’s raise our own voices and watch how liberals act on this one.

I’ll post again tomorrow on the Coleman-Franken events. (It’s getting hard to call it a recount.)

A big hat tip to Archer 05 who put me on to Vadum’s posting.

Today's news reports say that the GOP plea was turned down by a Minnesota judge. Is anyone surprised?

John, Off topic, but I needed something on a lighter note today. There is a political humorist ‘iowahawk’ that has added some chuckles to the questionable election we just witnesses.

For those feeling queasy about the upcoming reign of a false Messiah, perhaps a laugh will help. I laughed right out loud, and more than once.

“Yes, I know there are probably other African-Americans much better qualified and prepared for the presidency. Much, much better qualified. Hundreds, easily, if not thousands, and without any troubling ties to radical lunatics and Chicago mobsters. Gary Coleman comes to mind."

There is a good case to be made that Soros is KGB/FSB.
