It will surprise no one who has studied criminal justice that the culture of corruption that has permeated the Global Warming community has branched into other areas of corruption as well.  Corruption is like  a cancer that will spread until stopped.

Andy Stern is a communist boob.

Already cited as the most profligate visitor to Barack Obama’s White House, Andy just can’t stop bragging on his Twitter account about all the lobbying he is doing for the socialist cause.  The big problem for Andy, besides a running mouth, is that he never bothered to register as a lobbyist.

And, oops, that’s illegal!!

From Hot Air:

At 9 am ET today, Americans for Tax Reform and the Alliance for Worker Freedom will deliver a letter to both chambers of Congress and to  US Attorney Channing Phillips in Washington DC, demanding a federal investigation of Andrew Stern, president of the SEIU.  They will claim that Stern, who stopped registering as a federal lobbyist in 2007, has continued his lobbying efforts.  They claim to have compiled evidence of Stern’s lobbying from the recently released White House visitor logs, media reports — and Stern’s own Twitter feed, in what has to be a first for the social networking service.

Read the whole thing here!

Here is another excerpt:

Failure to  register as a lobbyist is a criminal act, which could result in up to five years in prison and a $200,000 fine.  But beyond that, wasn’t this the administration that was supposed to be the most transparent in history, and the one that would not tolerate lobbyist influence?  Didn’t anyone at the White House ask whether Stern had properly registered as a lobbyist when he was showing up every ten or eleven days in the West Wing?

Let’s see how the Adminstration and the Congress handles the case of their favorite Purple People Beater!

They better lay in a supply of these signs!

GOP elephant dead

This morning I was shocked to read that the National Republican Congressional Committee had recruited Newt Gingrich to endorse their failed congressional choice for the NY 23rd Congressional District special election.  I quickly penned and sent a letter to Mr. Gingrich:

Dear Mr. Gingrich,

I read with disgust this morning that you are being called upon to provide an endorsement for the Republican candidate for New York’s 23rd Congressional District.

I will provide you some unsolicited advice.  Stay Away.

The people of the 23rd District deserve a choice on their election ballot.  The choice betwen Owens and Scozzafava is a choice between Democrat and Democrat-Lite.  With Owens being the Democrat-Lite candidate.

Both of those candidates are tainted by endorsements and support from the axis of corruption, ACORN, SEIU and WFP (Working Families Party).  I would not be caught dead voting for any candidate so tainted and I believe that any American reasonably informed about the background of those entities would agree.

We in the Tea Party movement have been working for real change in our elected reresentatives.  The fact that the Republican Party in New York State is so tone deaf as to nominate a liberal to run in a conservative district indicates that it is in a continued state of denial.  The ground has shifted.  We are fed up with corruption, cronyism, business as usual from both sides of the aisle, and we are willing to fight to effect that change.

I am a registered Republican, and, although I do not live in the 23rd District, I would be proud to pull the lever for a third party candidate such as Doug Hoffman, who reflects the values of the district, over a Republican who is a Republican In Name Only.

Some may say we would split the vote and lose the District.  I say the district has been lost for years with John McHugh, who sold his soul on Cap and Tax to secure his job as Secretary of the Army, and would still be lost if Scozzafava is elected.

If it takes the destruction of the Republican Party in New York to change its liberal mindset then so be it.

It is our battle to fight in every district in New York State, not yours.  You did great work in the 1990’s with the Contract for America and getting out of control spending under control.  Unfortunately those victories were frittered away in the years afterwards.  You have much to offer in advice and framing the argument, but that does not extend to preaching to those who kept up the fight in the years since.  Do not demean your stature by fighting for the wrong side of history.

Sincerely,

Dan Maloney
NY State Coordinator

From Big Government.com:

The Working Families Party and local Democratic Party Officials are at the center of a massive voter fraud scandal in Troy, NY.

According to the Times Union:

Dozens of forged and fraudulent absentee ballots from people registered to vote on the Working Families Party line were filed in the Sept. 15 primary elections in Troy.

Documents at the county Board of Elections show the fraudulent ballots were handled by or prepared on behalf of various elected officials and leaders and operatives for the Democratic and Working Families parties.

There may be as many as 50 absentee ballots that were forged, according to people close to the case. Countywide, there were 126 absentee ballots applied for on the Working Families Party line.

What isn’t mentioned is that WFP is nothing more than a front group for ACORN.  Or as Roger Stone put it:

The Working Families Party is not about working people or families and it isn’t really a party. The WFP is a wholly owned subsidiary of ACORN. Bertha Lewis co-chair of the Working Families Party is the Executive Director of New York ACORN. New York ACORN leader, Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party and WFP headquarters are located at the same address as ACORN’s national and New York office at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

WFP is essentially a money funnel which pays for an aggressive door to door canvas. Largely funded by unions, the WFP is ACORN’s “political arm” in New York State. Candidates supported by the Working Families Party and issues supported by ACORN are both advocated on the door steps of target voter homes as they share one major voter canvas.

ACORN falls back on strong arm tactics to stem the flow of revelations!

ACORN-Snake

Rolling out their political stooges like Barney Frank to threaten investigations into the muckraking going on over at BigGovernment.com

Now ACORN has called out their legions of lawyers to go after the courageous young duo who exposed the corrupt criminal underpinnings of the monolithic criminal enterprise for all the world to see.

The tentacles of the ACORN monster plunge deep into the political structure of the Democrat party and will exert all of their “power of persuasion” to drive politicians, lawyers, district attorneys and anyone they’ve bought in the past to their defence.

Like cannon fodder they will be used up trying to defend the indefensible.

The rot in the ACORN tree will eventually cause it to fall.

Michelle Malkin has the scoop

The Wall Street Journal covered the Barney Frank angle.

Another view is that ACORN has just sprayed Miracle Grow on the seeds of their own destruction by opening the door to discovery by the attorneys for the defendants!  From Jonah GOldberg:

Fourth, even if the defendants don’t plead any counterclaims, the scope of discovery against ACORN will be incredibly broad, as it almost always is in civil litigation. ACORN has far, far more to lose from what could come out during discovery than what they are asking for in this suit.

Time to pop some popcorn!

Jonn at TAH slaps down Barney Frank’s attempt to pin ACORN on Bush!

ACORN IS the Working Families Party in New York!

ACORN-WFP Logos

Roger Stone lays it all out:

Media coverage of ACORN and that organization’s illegal activities in New York, California and elsewhere has largely ignored one of ACORN’s most successful projects; New York’s Working Families Party (WFP).

Because of the unique nature of New York State election law, candidates are allowed to be endorsed and appear on the voting machine ballot as the candidate of multiple parties, winning the cumulative total of all votes cast for that candidate on multiple party lines. Minor parties such as the Conservative, Liberal and Right to Life Party have played significant roles in New York politics.

The Working Families Party is not about working people or families and it isn’t really a party. The WFP is a wholly owned subsidiary of ACORN. Bertha Lewis co-chair of the Working Families Party is the Executive Director of New York ACORN. New York ACORN leader, Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party and WFP headquarters are located at the same address as ACORN’s national and New York office at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

WFP is essentially a money funnel which pays for an aggressive door to door canvas. Largely funded by unions, the WFP is ACORN’s “political arm” in New York State. Candidates supported by the Working Families Party and issues supported by ACORN are both advocated on the door steps of target voter homes as they share one major voter canvas.

The Working Families Party has no county organizations or county committee men or women and no local structure beyond its top leadership and an army of paid canvassers. Since the major parties no longer have the man power to organize an effective voter canvas, Democrats have turned to the WFP for their door to door campaign activities.

But more importantly, the Working Families Party is a criminal enterprise utilizing a for-profit political consulting firm, Data and Field Services (DFS) to skirt New York City election laws regarding public finance and campaign spending limits.

Blatant corruption and the arrogance to go with it.

We’ve all heard the vacuous talking heads of the Main Stream Media expounding endlessly on the ethics violations probes that have been launched over the past several months against former Governor Sarah Palin.

Palin-Campaign-2008

Naked Emperor News did some investigative journalism (You know: the work main stream media ‘journalists’ won’t do) and discovered shocking evidence that the bogus ethics violations were all coming out of a small interconnected group of left wing activists being orchestrated from the White House office of Peter Rouse, Senior Advisor to the President.

The video “Ethicsgate” was produced which detailed the interconnections and used audio of radio interviews with the perpetrators to show the fallacy of their non-connectedness.  One of the left wing bloggers lodged a copyright complaint with Youtube and forced the removal of the video expose.  Read the pink bar at the top.  It says:

This video is no longer available due to a copyright violation claim by Jeanne Devon

Jeanne Devon, aka Mudflats, was one person exposed in the video as being part of the conspiracy.

Next the video was loaded on the website Sevenload.  And now that copy has been removed as well.

Photo/video is not available

Luckily a copy still exists out there on yet a third site:

Hurry and view it now before it is scrubbed again by the Obama machine.

The lack of investigation by the main stream media makes them complicit in these actions.
