In one of the battleground counties ringing Philadelphia, ACORN gets its due.

>A Chester man entered a negotiated guilty plea Monday on forgery, identity theft and tampering with public records offenses. The charges were filed against 34-year-old Jemar Barksdale as a result of invalid voter registration applications he submitted, according to the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office. Barksdale, who entered the plea before Common Pleas Judge Patricia H. Jenkins, was sentenced to serve six to 23 months on electronic home monitoring, to undergo a psychiatric evaluation, perform eight hours of community service, to pay court costs and restitution in the amount of $574 to the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN).

Restitution–of course! ACORN is the victim here. And we’re all glad to hear this:

Krista Holub, ACORN Political Operations in Philadelphia, said in a prepared release that ACORN is satisfied with the outcome of the case.

Well, I guess she should be! Is there no shame??
