In legal settlement, group agrees not to return to state.
ACORN, the liberal group notorious for allegedly trying to inflate voter rolls through fraudulent practices, has seen its last election in Ohio.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now will permanently surrender its Ohio business license by June1 as part of a legal settlement with the conservative Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions, both sides said yesterday.
ACORN was active in Ohio in the 2006 and 2008 elections, working to register thousands of low-income people to vote and get them to the polls. The group's efforts were marred by irregularities, including one case in which ACORN workers allegedly induced a Cleveland man to register to vote 72 times, offering cigarettes as an incentive.
The Buckeye Institute's 1851 Center for Constitutional Law teamed with two Warren County residents to sue ACORN in Warren County Common Pleas Court just before the 2008 election. The residents alleged that their rights were abridged by thousands of fraudulent voter registrations, each representing "a potential illegal vote that has the capacity to dilute (legitimate) votes."
The case was moved to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
..."They will surrender their business license by June 1 and cease to operate in Ohio and cease to support or enable other groups to do what they do," Thompson said.

1 down, 49 to go.
RIGHT ON OHIO!
So they’ve changed their name.
Unfortunately, they will re-apply under another “name” for a license, be approved, and continue their illicit practices; Jennifer Bruner will see to that!
YESSSSS! (pumping fist in air!)
What name will they use in Ohio now?
Awesome. Now Brunner needs to be indicted.
If this settlement allows them to re-form later as another corporation, it is a minor set-back. The ruling should have prevented ANYONE who work for ACORN in Ohio from ever working in Ohio elections again.
They are like cockroaches. Need to keep exterminating.
does this mean they have the new successor corporation up and running so this does not matter?
does the agreement include successor corporations?
Will AmeriCorp enter voting registration vacuum?
Brunner’s busy as a paid ACORN infiltrator at the SoS level trying to fix the election.
After all, it worked out so well in 2008.
“Awesome. Now Brunner needs to be indicted.”
Considering she had an ACORN boss working out of her office, I would think so...but hey, it’s an Obama Nation now...
Exactly. Socialists don’t just quit because they lose a court battle.
Great news! One of the best articles I’ve seen in the Dispatch. Bye Bye ACORN.
ACORN ‘changed’ their name remember. So this is an empty headline article.
Ohio was one of the swing states that Obama carried by means of ACORN vote fraud.
This comes too late.
