From True the Vote September 12, 2011.

“Dear Fellow American,

You remember ACORN, the scandal-ridden organization that spearheaded
voter registration drives in heavily Democratic neighborhoods in 2008.
Well, it may be making a comeback just in time to help President Obama
win a second term!

The Obama campaign has decided to call their in-house voter
registration and activation program “Project Vote.” Ironically, there
is already an organization with this same name that focuses on
registering voters in “historically underrepresented communities.”
This Project Vote worked side by side ACORN to register voters in 21
battleground states in 2008…and President Obama served as its
director in Chicago in 1992. In 2008, the Obama campaign paid more
than $800,000 to an ACORN organization to help deliver votes in the
primary election against Hillary Clinton.

Now, the Obama 2012 Campaign has chosen to dispense with the illusion
of separation between camps. The announcement of the Obama 2012
Campaign’s new “Project Vote” initiative signals a “stop at nothing”
strategy.

I don’t have to tell you that taking back the White House in 2012 is
critical to America’s future. That’s why I’ve helped launch True the
Vote, an initiative developed by citizens for citizens, to inspire and
equip volunteers for involvement at every stage of our electoral
process and to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters,
regardless of their political party affiliation. But we urgently need
your help to implement this initiative in all 50 states before the
2012 primary elections begin in just a few months. Will you follow
this link right now to make a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or
whatever you can afford to support True the Vote’s efforts to ensure
free and fair elections?

I won’t bore you by going into all the details of how ACORN committed
electoral fraud in the past. Here’s just a sample of what happened in
2008: In Wisconsin, more than 30,000 voter registrations were
questioned after it was learned ACORN used felons as registration
workers. In Pennsylvania, more than 57,000 registrations were thrown
out due to falsification of information, and in Florida there were
questions about how 30,000 felons were registered to vote.

I hope these statistics shock you, because election fraud attacks the
heart of our political system and threatens our rights as citizens.
But we do not have to stand idly by and watch the corrosion of our
electoral process. We can, we must, get involved and take action. True
the Vote has a proven plan for citizen engagement, but we need your
help to see it implemented in every state in our nation.

Your immediate contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more will go
directly to to mobilizing and training volunteer election monitors and
providing them with program that includes live and online training on
state specific laws and polling place processes, reference guides, and
support in recognizing and reporting instances of registration abuse
and registry corruption

It’s our obligation as Americans to ensure our elections are free and
fair. I hope you will join with us to combat election fraud by
supporting True the Vote today.

Sincerely,

Catherine Engelbrecht
President and Founder, True the Vote”

“None of this, of course, was accidental. The most effective minority voter registration drive in memory was the result of careful handiwork by Project Vote!, the local chapter of a not-for-profit national organization. “It was the most efficient campaign I have seen in my 20 years in politics,” says Sam Burrell, alderman of the West Side’s 29th Ward and a veteran of many registration drives.

At the head of this effort was a little-known 31-year-old African-American lawyer, community organizer, and writer: Barack Obama. The son of a black Kenyan political activist and a white American anthropologist”
