Hoffman pelts Obama with Acorns

Unlike my local Mayoral candidate who doesn’t know an opening when he sees it Doug Hoffman saw this fox story:

Thirty-eight forged or fraudulent ballots have been thrown out, according to records at the Rensselaer County Board of Elections in Troy, N.Y. Enough votes, an election official admits, to likely have tipped the November election to the Democrats.

and struck while the Iron is hot via a Robert Stacy McCain Exclusive:

The campaign of Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman is preparing to request that President Obama send monitors from the Justice Department to prevent vote-fraud efforts in the crucial Nov. 3 special election in upstate New York’s 23rd district.

The actual release is also on McCain’s site and linked here.

“Today, I am calling on Bill Owens to do the right thing and, when he is with President Obama tonight; ask him to take immediate action to defund ACORN and block the flow of any and all federal funds to the scandal ridden organization and its numerous subsidiaries. In addition, Bill Owens should request that Justice Department monitors be put in place to insure that ACORN’s political arm in New York State, the Working Families Party, does not steal this election. In Troy, New York, just South of the 23rd Congressional District, a special prosecutor is currently investigating the forgery of absentee ballots in September’s Primary elections and the Working Families Party is the focus of that investigation. Its common knowledge that ACORN and the Working Families Party have absolutely no respect for the law and I know I am the one candidate they want to defeat.”

Oh and Charles for future reference this is another example of actually saying a press release is a press release. That’s the type of thing that done by what we call professional reporters.

This should be an object lesson to the NRCC by doing this not only does Hoffman guarantee Fox coverage as he acts based on their coverage. (Which Stacy links here) but he explicitly manages to link Obama to Acorn if he doesn’t act and both of his opponents as well if they don’t join his call.

This is called the smart way of doing things. We need smart people in Washington.

And speaking of smart how come McCain can break this story even if he isn’t in NY yet but nobody else can?

If you can explain why this isn’t on Memorandum you are smarter than I am. Maybe Move-on is making another set of demands? Or maybe republicans don’t want to offend Newt. Hey Newt how’s your candidate doing? What does she think of Acorn?

Vote Hoffman!
