The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, is once again under scrutiny by elections officials, the public, and the press for apparent voter registration fraud in Missouri, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
These accusations are only the most recent in the group's notorious history that includes ties to voter fraud in 12 states, as outlined in a report by the Employment Policies Institute.
The most recent accusations of fraud are an unfortunate case of deja vu, as ACORN faced similar accusations of fraud in Missouri, Ohio, and Pennsylvania in the last two years. So far this election cycle, state elections boards have uncovered the following:
Missouri -- The St. Louis elections director estimated that after investigating 5,000 registrations turned in by ACORN, only 10 to 15 percent were legitimate and it had appeared that names had been copied from the phone book. More egregious violations include registrations for three dead people and one 16 year old.
Kansas City's director of elections said about 3,000 registrations turned in by ACORN included suspicious signatures, underage registrants, and birth dates and Social Security numbers conflicting with state databases.
Ohio -- Franklin County elections director turned over 500 potentially fraudulent cards turned in by ACORN including registrations with signatures in the same handwriting, addresses for vacant lots, and even a registration for a dead person. Similarly suspicious registrations turned up in Summit and Cuyahoga Counties including a fraudulent card submitted by ACORN that led to a 16 year old being registered to vote.
Pennsylvania -- In Philadelphia, the city's voter registration office rejected about 3,000 cards submitted by ACORN because of missing information or invalid addresses. Nearly 100 fraudulent voter registrations submitted by ACORN in Delaware County prompted the District Attorney's Office to issue an identity theft alert.
"The frequency with which ACORN is accused of voter fraud reveals their continual disregard for the law and the elections process," said Mike Flynn, EPI's director of legislative affairs. "Their cavalier disregard for the law undermines the integrity of our voting system."
Many of these Democrat "get-out-the-vote" workers are exuberant, but haven't the brains of a rabbit.
EVIDENCE OF REPUBLICANS INVOLVED IN WIDESPREAD VOTER FRAUD!!
Why isn't ACORN sued out of existence and its officials in jail for voter fraud? Election laws are as worthless as our immigration laws.
Acorn is a Liberal group, and they have done this before.
Pretty bizarre, makes you wonder why they are still allowed to operate. They did the same thing in the last election
mark for later
ACORN doesn't even pay their field works the Federal minimum wage. They had to file a complaint with the NRLD against ACORN.
You typical ACORN supporter is some trust fund white kid from the suburbs who wears a 'fro and a Che shirt, neither of which have been washed in recent recorded history.
Make that NRLB...
ACORN's are nothing but a bunch of nuts.
ACORN - the most dangerous nut in America
The LaKeisha brigade
He reminded me of Tyler from "Sherman Oaks".
If you're a liberal college kid and really dumb, you join Billionaires For Bush. The top three American Billionaires gave money to Kerry. Of the top 20 contributors to 527s where the big money is, only two were sending money to conservatives. Top 3, all liberal sent about $75 million to 527s.
Either the Billionaires For Bush are stupid or liars, perhaps both.

I resent that statement. Rabbits can be very intelligent :)
