Obama Campaign Calls For Investigation Into DOJ/McCain Collusion On ACORN Smears

Breaking news on Friday's Countdown. Senator Barack Obama's campaign has written a letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey asking for an investigation into improper leaks from DOJ officials involving their ACORN investigation and whether or not people within the DOJ, perhaps with the help of the White House, are working in concert with the McCain campaign to further the ACORN myth for his political advantage.

Keith Olbermann talked with an Obama campaign attorney about this brilliant strategy by the campaign -- they are linking the ACORN/DOJ scandal with the U.S. Attorney firing scandal.

This sounds like it is going to get very interesting!

What Olberman says is that the Obama campaign believe that the DOJ is helping McCain "smear" ACORN and is playing these fraudulent voter registrations and votes thing up in order to repress votes later!

So, unlike past elections where this was brought up AFTER the election, Obama is trying to get the Attorney General, Michael Mukasey, to look into his allegations now before it's too late and the deed is done!

I guess we'll just have to see if the Attorney General investigates this or not!

I'll post Olbermans video/news report below.

Interesting video. So this is pretty much the same thing they were investigating with the abuse of power and firing of the attorneys? Seems like a pattern here.

obama is afraid very afraid!!!!

with due right to be.

not because it smears him in a bad light...
but because in the end he fear's the truth will not set him free..

personally this is just another obama tactic to stall the inevitable.

Now ask yourself this...
If obama didn't give them 800k . for the soul reason of signing up poor voter's..
Poor voter's= democrat's in America BTW
Show's he did fund acorn to get him poor voters AKA democrats registered..

thus the wheels on the bus go round and round.

there is way more than a bunch of crack heads made fake names up to get a paycheck.
Are they telling us..Crackheads nation wide was the majority of worker's obamas acorn hired?
If so what would we expect to be employee's in the white house?

Lazy crackheads nation wide planed nation wide voter registration fraud!!!
sorry the story don't sound right

Both parties pay groups to register voters. It happens in every election cycle and that's what a big portion of political fundraising is used for.

Who do you REALLY think is trying to smear who after your done reading this!

ACORN Voter Fraud in NM

The Associated Press reported Friday that the New Mexico GOP found 28 people who voted fraudulently in Albuquerque during the June Democratic primary by absentee ballot. One of the ballots was cast from someone named "Duran-Duran"

The GOP's review was conducted in House District 13 and only included 92 ballots. That means roughly a third of the ballots examined found by the GOP were fraudulent. The New Mexico GOP released 10 of their suspect ballots. They ballots did not contain required identification information such as Social Security numbers, drivers license numbers or birthdates.

This is a bombshell. We now have undeniable proof that a significant number of fraudulent voters were cast in Democrat primary races for the New Mexico state legislature as a result of ACORN’s voter registration fraud,” said State Representative Justine Fox Young (R.-Albuquerque). “No longer can ACORN argue that their phony voter registration forms don’t translate into fraudulent votes. They do and today we can prove it.”

And now it's time for them to eat crow!

They called that a "bombshell", well, here's the real "BOMBSHELL"!

RNC On New Mexico "Voter Fraud": Never Mind

As if you needed any more evidence that the Republican effort to tout voter fraud is less about legitimate claims and more about a political agenda, consider this sequence of events:

Last week, as we noted at the time, the New Mexico GOP had publicly claimed that 28 people voted fraudulently in the Democratic primary, held in June, for a local race.

Then this morning, the RNC sent out a press release announcing a 3pm conference call with reporters "on the recent developments in New Mexico regarding ACORN."

But at 11am, ACORN -- the community organizing group that Republicans have been trying lately to turn into a voter fraud boogeyman -- held a conference call of its own, asserting that local election officials had confirmed that the 28 people in question, mostly low-income Latinos, were valid voters.

I think I just heard an explosion!

So who do you think is actually trying to do the smearing here!

Can anybody say, "Voter fraud fear mongering"?

Not the "US Attorney firing scandal" again.

US Attornies serve at the pleasure of the President. When Bill Clinton took office in 1993 he fired all 93 of them. When Bush fires's a scandal?

Obama and his ACORN connections are something he doesn't want people to know about. If it takes going to court to hide it, he will do it.
