Go Rick S. Take these folks to task about ACORN....
Show it what it really is, a concerted effort to defame an organization that is trying to help low and moderate income people survive in the no holds barred capitalism the Right is in favor of.
About the voter registration forms. If you take in a registration form from a potential voter you are acting as an agent for the Board of Election first and ultimately the Secretary of State. In that position as an agent for the Board and SOS, you are required to turn in any and all registration forms to the Board or SOS.
I just caught the last bit on Rick Sanchez with the CEO of ACORN but she made it clear that they tagged and turned in every registration form they had in their custody. That is the law. This point needs to be made over and over again that no matter if the form is blatantly wrong, it still MUST be turned into the Board or the SOS. That is the LAW. That is the fiduciary responsibility of those conducting any voter registration drive.
1. Didn't see that part, but seeing his offensive question
to the black woman about what she might have said or done to "provoke" the attack. She didn't say or do anything and even if she did, NOTHING justifies being beaten like that. NOTHING. So I'm pissed off at Rick for today.
I think he knew the answer to that question but wanted to get that part out of the way. I think he figured some dumbass is going to ask that on twitter (or may have already done so) and wanted to give her the chance to speak for herself. It didn't seem offensive to me.
you can't blame them if some asshole turns in a fake form, but if it's their own employees filling them out, they're not blameless. It's not necessarily an indictment of the entire organization, but they do bear some responsibility for the people they hire.
