Republicans have been busy slandering ACORN in recent weeks improperly alleging ‘voter fraud.’ One has to wonder how these same people will respond to the fact that the California Republican Party hired a firm whose owner has been arrested for possible voter registration fraud.
Reports state that Mark Jacoby, owner of Young Political Majors, was arrested for fraudulently registering himself to vote at a childhood California address where he no longer lives so he would appear to meet the legal requirement that all signature gatherers be eligible to vote in California. If true, it would appear that he committed the crime in an attempt to get an easy pay check from the GOP. If we are using the same flawed model as conservatives have used with ACORN, then we must condemn the GOP for engaging in some grand conspiracy to commit ‘voter fraud.’
To add insult to injury, there was an entirely different problem with Jacoby and his firm’s actions. The arrest actually came after dozens of voters said that they were duped into registering as Republicans by people employed by Jacoby. The Republican Party of California was paying his firm $7 to $12 for every person that they could get registered.
How long will we have to wait for conservatives to start feigning outrage over the actions of the California Republican Party and the arrested leader of the firm that they themselves hired?
