Elizabeth Warren’s daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi is leaving nothing to chance in the 2012 election for her mother.  Warren Tyagi, the chair of the George Soros funded Demos Foundation, has bankrolled, through Demos, former members of ACORN in their pursuit to have the Commonwealth’s welfare agency perform a voter registration drive.  The Boston Herald has the story, although they missed the Warren familial connection.

The state has mailed out voter registration letters to nearly 500,000 welfare recipients, in a push sparked by a group led by former ACORN bigwigs that critics say is a naked bid to boost Democrats at the polls in November.

The letters, mailed last month by the state’s Department of Transitional Assistance, went out as Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren have been locked in a neck-and-neck race.

The welfare system’s get-out-the-vote push came in response to a suit brought by New England United for Justice (NEU4J), which is led by three former leaders of the controversial Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now. ACORN was disbanded in 2010 amid a voter fraud scandal.

The article goes on to show that NEU4J was aided financially in this effort by Warren Tyagi’s organization Demos.

NEU4J worked in concert with Demos, a liberal group leading a national charge to enroll welfare recipients. Demos – which was started in the 1990s and lists Barack Obama on its founding board of directors – has sued nine states, including the battlegrounds of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Nevada, according to Demos lawyer Lisa Danetz.

Cases are still pending in Nevada, Pennsylvania and Louisiana, which is fighting the suit. Settlements have been reached in Ohio, Missouri, New Mexico, Indiana and Georgia. Meanwhile, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado and Mississippi have all agreed to comply without being sued.

So Elizabeth Warren’s daughter is using the power of the Commonwealth to register voters for her mother.  What a great system we live in.

    Per David Bernstein, this action was the result of a lawsuit brought by the federal gov’t against the state for failing to adhere to the Motor-voter law that requires that the Dept. of Transitional Assistance provide voter registration forms to people who come seeking services (much as the RMV is required to do).

    Turns out, the Mass. DTA wasn’t routinely doing that. In other words, the state was systematically failing to register thousands upon thousands of welfare recipients. Only when taken to court — and with great pressure to act in time for the August 17 registration deadline for the state primary — did state officials agree to try to make good by sending out letters and other public outreach. That effort, needless to say, is likely to be far less effective than the in-person assistance the state was supposed to do in the first place.

    What a great system we live in, where states and elected officials are required to follow the law.

    Thank God I do not live in that moonbat neighborhood.  

  • Just let people register on election day.  The right to vote shouldn’t be subject to arbitrary bureaucratic deadlines anyway.

  • those high cheekbones!!   Bet Mini-Lizzy is 1/64th Cherokee!!

    Any takers???

  • several months ago from Florida as she was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer and pregnant for the first time.

    She did not have health Insurance and had her (one chance) baby only too pass away not long after she gave birth.

    Guess what came mailed to her last week?

    We were all appalled.

    How is her personal information disseminated to the point that she recieved this Voter’s Registration App?

    The fact that anyone would stoop so low as to target and bother the sick and poor to register to vote simply because they would be more likely to vote for a particular party demonstrates how low some Dem’s will go to stay in Power; it’s beyond our understanding of evil people.

    If so much as one penny of taxpayers money was involved in this scheme, I hope the AG is seriously looking into this!

  • An even odder situation.

    ….in a push sparked by a group led by former ACORN bigwigs

    So ACORN made a name for itself by (among other things) protesting big banks before OCCUPY made it cool…harassing bank executives and generally opposing foreclosures on homes purchased by people who couldn’t pay their mortgages.

    Meanwhile back in academia Warren was purchasing homes in foreclosure and flipping them for a tidy profit.  Sounds almost like….dare I say it…capitalist.  Does the occupy movement know their poster girl may  be a closet capitalist and may enjoy making money **shudder**?
