ACORN pleads guilty to voter registration fraud in Nevada
Fox News ^ | 4/6/11 | Eric Shawn

Posted on 04/06/2011 1:37:33 PM PDT by Nachum

The defunct political advocacy group ACORN has pleaded guilty to one count of an election law violation in Las Vegas, Nevada.

ACORN attorney Lisa Rasmussen told Fox News that a plea agreement was worked out with the state attorney general. The violation was for unlawfully providing compensation for registering voters based on the total number of people registered. Sentencing for the organization is set for Aug. 10, and the potential fine is a maximum of $5,000.

ACORN itself was named as a criminal defendant in the case for allegedly running an illegal voter registration scheme called "21," or "Blackjack," which paid ACORN workersarned bonuses based on the number of voters they registered in Nevada during the 2008 election.

Well, that'll really put a dent in their $2 billion budget.

ROTFLMAO!!! Those Nazi bass turds sure take their elections seriously! $5000.00! That doesn't even reach the "chump change" category. What Nevada needs is a "do over" so THE PEOPLE OF NEVADA can finally unload Stinky Reid without the union mafia saving his ass all the time.

I’m completely serious when I say that Vote Fraud should be a Capital offense carrying an automatic death sentence.

Notice how the racist federal justice department didn’t pursue this case.

If the perps were white and conservative, Eric Holder would have made it his priority.

So would you put Harry Reid, the chief community organizer Acorn attorney Barry Obama AND Ms. "You have to read the bill to know what's in it" all in jail?

Here's the problem. The charge is against ACORN. ACORN can pay a fine, but you can't put 'ACORN' in jail.

A $5,000 fine? Really? Like that’s gonna have an impact.

The fine will be laughed at and scoffed at behind closed doors. And it will make absolutely no difference in the way ACORN operates.

Now, if somebody went to jail for a couple of years, I reckon they might sit up and take notice.

A silly fine? What BS!

No, it doesn’t. And in pub-controlled state houses across the country pubs are doing NOTHING about voter fraud. NOTHING.

To be paid for by the likes of you and me since their coffers are kept conveniently stocked with taxpayer funds.
 
Little wonder those sort are emboldened - no real consequences, no pain. No incentives to walk the straight and narrow.

{Art.} ACORN has pleaded guilty to one count of an election law violation in Las Vegas, Nevada.

So when can we hang Harry Reid?

That doesn't even reach the "chump change" category.

The judge couldn't find it in him, the jury having returned a verdict, actually to punish his political friends. That's okay -- we can take the rest of it out of his hide.

Good Point,but if we do not wrest control from these criminals there will never be a fair election again.

Everyone they were helping,this should be a capitol crime and the ones they are working for should receive the same sentence, maybe more.

“Not only are you and the rest of us ROTFLMAO at the 5 grand fine, so is Dingy Harry.”

When I read the headlines, Dingy Harry's “win” was the first thing I thought of too. Pre-election support seemed to be behind Sharon Angle (sp?) according to the polls, newspapers, and residents. When Reid won, the first thing I thought of was “voter fraud”, but there was no proof. Now this. Stealing elections should be IMO on the same level as lying under oath. A judge once told me that lying under oath is judged so strongly because without everyone telling the truth, justice cannot be obtained. Therefore, it is put on the same level as treason. Voter fraud is/should be treason also.
