Barack Obama delivers a preemptive strike on Republican election theft:
I request that Special Prosecutor Dannehy’s inquiry include a review of any involvement by Justice Department and White House officials in supporting the McCain-Palin campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC’s) systematic development and dissemination of unsupported, spurious allegations of voter fraud.” –Letter from Obama for America General Counsel Bob Bauer to U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey
Department of Justice investigators (FBI) leaked details of a “voter fraud” investigation to the Associated Press on the very heels of McCain saying ACORN threatens the very fabric of democracy. ACORN produced a small number of fraudulent voter registration forms which by law they must turn in; however, they flag potential fakes. The organization targets low to moderate income and minority voters. McCain’s, Palin’s, and Fox News’ hyperbolic attacks on ACORN have been ginning up suspicion of the voter registration process.
