Wouldn’t ya know it? A rich socialist and community organizers behind the rigging of an election that benefits a Hollywood has-been politician wannabe.
Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, who orchestrated the recount that gave Democratic challenger Al Franken a lead some six weeks after incumbent GOP Sen. Norm Coleman appeared to win by 725 votes on Election Day, has extensive ties to both the ACORN organization now under federal investigation for vote fraud, and to MoveOn.org ultra-liberal kingmaker George Soros.
In 2006, ACORN endorsed Ritchie in his bid to become secretary of state, and Ritchie also received a campaign contribution that year from Soros.
Familiar names. Fingerprints, please.
Indeed, Ritchie has credited his own political career in large part to an obscure, Soros-funded group called the Secretary of State Project (SoS), whose express purpose is to seed state election bureaucracies nationwide with partisan activists — Ritchie among them — who are strategically positioned to influence the outcome of close recounts like the one now underway in Minnesota.
Seeing how a large number of the American people are ignorant of the players, or simple could give a shit, giving Al Franken the boost he never achieved during the campaign is the only way he’ll win.
You know, the new American way.
