Is there anything as an honest election anymore? Why can't these "officials" just go by the strength of the candidate? Liberal activist group filed 2,000 fraudulent voter forms, Indiana officials say.They included names of the dead and Jimmy Johns, a restaurant. Elections Board in northern Indiana has stopped processing 5,000 forms. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/09/acorn.fraud.claims/index.html

I have to say at least they found the culprit in this. And you aren't blaming the candidate for this party. I just came from a discussion that was blaming Obama for the fraudulent voter registration forms filed by a group called ACORN (The Association of Community Organization for Reform Now) Now, I don't defend the organization much, having worked there and knowing it was moreso on behalf of the volunteers than ACORN itself. But I don't see why this person had to blame Obama for this mistake. This has been happening for ages, people are doing this to get paid. Its not right, but my point is they aren't under direction of the candidate to do so, and under no circumstances should a candidate be blamed for something like this.

Yeah, it truly is a shame and also an embarrassment. For the supposed "greatest country on Earth" can't even find people willing to win on their own merit and worth. Instead, we are reduced to a country where as long as we get what we want, we don't care how dishonest it is or who we step on to get it. I know it's not just a one country problem kind of thing, but still. People here and everywhere should be better than that.
