LAS VEGAS A prominent antipoverty organization that drew criticism from Republicans during last years presidential race was charged by Nevada officials Monday with engaging in voter registration fraud.
Two former leaders of the groups Nevada branch were also charged in connection with the submission of thousands of bogus voter registration forms.
The organization, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or Acorn, is accused of paying canvassers only if they registered at least 20 voters per shift and providing bonuses of $5 for registering more than 21.
Under Nevada law, it is illegal to attach incentives to such work, in part because it encourages canvassers to submit fraudulent forms, Secretary of State Ross Miller said.
Acorn submitted 91,002 completed forms in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas, of which 23,186 turned out to be valid new voters who voted in November, according to data provided by Mr. Millers office.
Mr. Miller investigated Acorn at the behest of the Clark County registrar of voters, Larry Lomax, who noted a high number of forms turned in featuring the names of famous football players and cartoon characters.

Yawn. Any monitary penalties that need to be paid should be addressed to: “1600 Pennsylania Ave. Washinton DC”
Wow, 2 or 3 people will get a $50 fine. Nothing to see here. They need to go after them like the mafia. It is a criminal organization.
“A prominent antipoverty organization that drew criticism from Republicans during last years presidential race...”
No bias here. None at all...
While the FBI is sleeping, ACORN is stealing elections. Don’t we go to war over issues like this ?
And the sheeple actually FALL for this! We are in end times.
The Association of Communist Organizers for Republicans Nevermore!
People are so used to the Obama and the demokrats corruption they have become complacent to the rule of law.
What they need to do is do a 100% purge of the voter rolls and re-register everyone to vote. And make them show ID.
Actually, if this was done across the country, there would probably be a filibuster proof majority in office. And it would be Republican.
