The Association of Community Activists for Reform Now (ACORN) is still racking up indictments and convictions for voter fraud across the nation. ACORN is closely tied to President Obama, he having worked for them when he lived in Chicago and they having heavily supported his candidacy. Additionally, former ACORN members have flocked to the Obama administration since his win in November last.
For instance, in Obama's old home state of Illinois, a woman that works for an ACORN offshoot group has been charged by Lake County officials (the County just north of Chicago's Cook County) with filing fake voter registration cards.
Jannette Sims, 46, a resident of Chicago, is charged with mutilation of election materials and faces up to three years in prison.
Sims worked for a voter-registration drive sponsored by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The voter-registration group which was likely trained by ACORN. The Obama-tied community group has numerous associations with the SEIU through many such training programs.
Meanwhile, in Nevada, Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto filed charges against ACORN alleging that the group was brazen enough about its voter fraud to institute policies requiring employees to sign up 20 new voters per day or face termination of employment. Such quotas are against Nevada election law.
Of these recent charges in Nevada, Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, says, "The Nevada raid marked the third time in weeks that the Chicago-based group got busted for falsifying voter registration forms during the 2008 presidential campaign. Weeks earlier ACORN submitted fraudulent voter registration cards in the key battleground state of Florida and in New Mexico’s most populous county (Bernalillo). "
ACORN has been in trouble for falsifying information to register new voters in numerous other states, including Milwaukee, Missouri, Ohio, North Carolina and Colorado to name a few. In 2007 the group settled the largest case of voter fraud in the history of Washington State after seven workers were caught submitting about 2,000 fake registration forms.
Along with the many shady financial misdeeds in which ACORN is involved, the community group shows no signs that it will any time soon cease its efforts to destroy the integrity of the democratic process through voter fraud.
