Voter Registration Reform
In a press release dated July 22, 2009, The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania made the following announcement:
PITTSBURGH - The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania and Project Vote filed a lawsuit today on behalf of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a community organization comprising more than 20,000 working families in Pennsylvania that utilizes voter-engagement strategies, like voter-registration campaigns, as part of its work to strengthen low- and moderate-income communities. The lawsuit charges that a Pennsylvania law unconstitutionally restricts ACORN's right to conduct voter-registration drives by effectively prohibiting it from using paid canvassers.
The lush blue carpet was rolled out magisterially last week for Arlen Specter by top Democrats, as the five - term senator announced that he was switching parties. Specter finally took the plunge after reading some cruel polling data, but it didn't hurt that his old friend and fundraiser extraordinaire Governor Ed Rendell and Vice President Joe Biden had been cajoling him for months to come on over. Or that the President was so "thrilled" to have Arlen on his team (so were the Eagles when they first got Terrell Owens) that he promptly offered "my full support" in the Democratic primary (more on that below).
Make sure you're registered.
