Lewis Soundbite #1: Modern Day McCarthyism Against ACORN.

 (4:38) "This form of modern day ACORN McCarthyism has got to stop. Last week, Members of Congress were asked 'Are you now or have you ever been a member of ACORN?'...This is not how we have disagreement in this country. By demonizing someone without due process, this whole voting, defund ACORN, it's all sensational, but it's unconstitutional."

Lewis Soundbite #2: Voter Fraud Allegations Were "Utter Fabrication."

 (1:09) "This voter fraud or the allegations of voter fraud was to have hung a shadow over the Presidential election and it proved to be an utter fabrication and a work of fiction that was created by the people who wrote it."
