ACORN voting fraud in the news

ACORN voting fraud is getting increased attention in two states today. First, in New York, “massive” voter fraud is connected to the Working Families Party – you guessed it – an ACORN front group.

Mike Roman at Big Government links to a piece in the Times-Union by Brendan Lyons who has the details:

Dozens of forged and fraudulent absentee ballots from people registered to vote on the Working Families Party line were filed in the Sept. 15 primary elections in Troy.Documents at the county Board of Elections show the fraudulent ballots were handled by or prepared on behalf of various elected officials and leaders and operatives for the Democratic and Working Families parties.

There may be as many as 50 absentee ballots that were forged, according to people close to the case. Countywide, there were 126 absentee ballots applied for on the Working Families Party line.

God knows how many fraudulent ballots there were which weren’t found.

Also, out west, Roman informs us of a case in Las Vegas involving a former ACORN field director who devised a unique incentive program for his voter registration workers; bring in 21 registrations, get a bonus.

Except – that sort of thing is illegal in Nevada, as Ashley Powers writing in the LA Times shows:

As the field director of ACORN’s Las Vegas office, he brainstormed a way to motivate meagerly paid canvassers: If they turned in 21 or more registration cards in a day, they were each given a $5 bonus.

“Hey, it’s Las Vegas,” Edwards testified Tuesday. “It’s blackjack.”

But Edwards’ “blackjack bonuses,” which he bragged about to other ACORN offices, broke the law, state prosecutors say. Nevada bars quotas or cash incentives in voter sign-up efforts: Officials fear they could lead to false registrations.
