Pro-Obama Community Organizer Group Involved in (More) Voter Fraud
From the Detroit Free Press:
Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.
The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN’s Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.
“There appears to be a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications,” said Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office. “And it appears to be widespread.”
As Ed Morrissey points out, this is the group that Barack Obama trusts to conduct his get out the vote efforts. They have been implicated in voter registration scandals in Washington and Missouri, as well as New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Their director recently sought to cover up embezzlement from ACORN by his own brother.
