ACORN Members Facing Voter Registration Fraud
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ―
The Allegheny County District Attorney announced today that he is charging seven members of the political action group, ACORN, with forgery and election law violations.
Authorities say the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now registered 140,000 voters during the 2008 general election, many of them were Democrats.
But the Republican Party claimed that many of them were fraudulent.
District Attorney Stephen Zappala announced the charges today, saying that hundreds of the registrants were indeed fraudulent.
However, ACORN officials deny the charges.
"Other states"==about 13 other states.
This is easily the most overt corrupt organization claiming to be a non-profit/non-affiliated group. Its also has received tax payer money and is bidding on more.
Perhaps the most overt voter fraud in US history(at least since the 19th Century). May end up being the largest as well.
Obama's favorite.... gee I wonder why.
