Government watchdogs are blasting the Obama campaign’s decision to name its 2012 voter-registration initiative “Project Vote” — the same name as a group closely linked to the discredited ACORN organization.
Members of ACORN were caught on undercover video giving two supposed clients detailed instructions on how to commit fraud, and ACORN faced a number of voter-registration fraud cases following the 2008 election.ACORN-linked Project Vote is a Washington, D.C.-based 501c3 nonprofit organization that supports voter-registration drives in “historically underrepresented communities.”
Use of the Project Vote name by the Obama campaign is “truly astonishing,” Tom Fitton, president of the conservative Judicial Watch good-government group, tells Newsmax. “We knew President Obama was the president from ACORN. And if this isn’t an indication of it, we don’t know what is.”
The decision to employ the Project Vote name was clear in a recent email from the Obama campaign: "Project Vote will embark on a voter registration effort to maximize voter participation. Project Vote will drive our campaign strategy — from paid media, to digital outreach, to grassroots organizing and voter registration efforts — to communicate with and engage key demographic groups."
the use of the Project Vote name for Obama’s new voter-registration drive “says the Obama campaign is up to the same old tricks, that they’re not afraid of being called out by the media. They know that they can continue to operate with impunity, encouraging voter fraud, and they’re not going to be held accountable.”

Guess we can expect more Black Pathner types at the polls in 2012 also. Maybe some Union thugs-if any are left in the Obama camp by then.

This has nothing to do with the two retards standing in front of a Black polling station making sure no one kept Blacks from voting. Gimmie a break.
Oh, and you're not the only one who supports the 2A and where I come from, people who brag about what they got and what they gonna do with it don't last very long.
And from the looks of it, it aint much.
