    Angry ACORN Charged with Voter Fraud!

    7 Pa. ACORN workers charged in voter probe

    PITTSBURGH (AP) ó Seven Pittsburgh-area ACORN workers were charged with falsifying voter registration forms, with six accused of doing so to meet the group's alleged quota system before last year's general election.

    District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. said he's hoping the workers charged Thursday will help authorities determine whether Allegheny County ACORN officials will be charged with requiring the illegal quotas or otherwise directing that voter registrations be faked.

    "You should consider the investigation as ongoing," Zappala said.

    Six suspects forged a total of 51 cards, a felony that carries up to seven years in prison. The same six also were charged with illegally accepting payments to meet a quota of 20 registrations per day ó a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

    The one defendant not charged with either of those crimes told police he filled out at least 100 voter registration cards in his own name, even though he was already registered and knew it was illegal. He's charged with misdemeanor counts of obstructing and interfering with the elections process, as are several of the others.

    Zappala said investigators targeted 100 local ACORN canvassers after county elections officials started noticing dozens of possibly forged registration forms in August. ACORN registered 38,000 new voters in southwestern Pennsylvania, including about 33,600 in the county last year, Zappala said.
    Acorn Charged in Voter Registration Fraud Case in Nevada
    LAS VEGAS ó A prominent antipoverty organization that drew criticism from Republicans during last yearís presidential race was charged by Nevada officials Monday with engaging in voter registration fraud.

    Two former leaders of the groupís 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. Millerís office.

    How come we aren't hearing more of this from the MSM? Further proof they are leftist supporting communism.

    What level of cognitive dissonance does it take to equate a bunch of people forging instruments to meet a quota with communism?

    It was voter fraud.

    However, it was voter fraud in the same way that a noise violation is criminal activity.

    Registration fraud is not the same as voter fraud. There isn't any evidence I've seen that the fake names used to boost the workers pay led to any actual voter fraud. They may have registered, but they didn't show up to vote.

    There's no evidence of that. Did Charlie Brown and Bullwinkle show up and vote? Do you actually think that the margin of Obama's victory had anything to do with a handful of greedy employees trying to make a buck registering people who didn't even exist? Come on.

    Why not, we had Geo. W. Bush, who through his political hacks in Florida stole the election in 2000.

    Nope, it just says something about the ethics and morals of an Organization set up and sponsored but King Obama. They are a radical group and really need to be regulated and controlled.

    The actions of a few people trying to make a buck by breaking the rules set by the organization itself says nothing about the organization. Your molehill into mountain tactic is quite lame and pretty pathetic.
    Is that all you guys have left? Except for the "Obama is not an American" bull****? Sad.

    Seems the ACORN defenders need a cold drink to help "wash it down" after the recent revelations.

    How?By winning an election and not calling foul when the vote didn't go his way?
    The funniest part was that if Algore had called for a recount in other districts,he would have gotten MORE votes from them that weren't verified until after the Florida vote had been certified and submitted.
    No wonder he lost and we had better years because a President respected the Rights of the People instead of presuming to know best for us.

    Whether or not they showed up,either themselves or someone else with an ID that claims they were that person,is it legal to register a non existant name or dead person to vote?
    Don't get snarky because y'all can't or don't want to answer a hard question.You might or might not be Democrats but you don't get to prescreen the questions to weed out anything that would prove you to be wrong.
