OCTOBER 20, 2008
On the heels of a liberal group’s nationwide corrupt voter registration drive favoring Democrats, the owner of a firm hired by California’s Republican Party to register voters has been arrested and charged with fraud.
The company (Young Political Majors) collects petition signatures and registers voters throughout the country and was paid $7 to $12 by California’s Republican Party for every citizen registered as a member of the GOP. Dozens of voters said they were conned into registering as Republicans by workers who claimed they were signing a petition to toughen penalties against child molesters.
Authorities also said that the company’s owner, Mark Jacoby, fraudulently registered himself to vote at a fake California address in order to meet the legal requirement that all signature gatherers be eligible to vote in the state. The Republican operative has been charged with two felonies, voter registration fraud and perjury.
The arrest comes amid massive voter registration fraud by a taxpayer-funded community group that recently had its offices raided by the FBI. The Chicago-based Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has been busted for falsifying voter registration forms throughout the country, including the key battleground states of Florida, New Mexico and Ohio.
Last year the group settled the largest case of voter fraud in the history of Washington State after seven workers were caught submitting about 2,000 fake registration forms. This year, ACORN even submitted a voter registration in Florida for a famous Disney character (Mickey Mouse).
