    In 2005 both ACORN and PV were caught doing the same thing here in Virginia.

    ahhhh...so this type of voter fraud is acceptable, even though they pled guilty to it in a court of law.
    gotcha.

    LO!

    ACORN performed their legal duty by flagging those registrations as fraudulent and turning over the employees responsible to the election board and police.
    then why did obama dump em?

    Both voter fraud and voter registration fraud should be important issues

    actual voter fraud of course is more serious then voter registration fraud

    However much canvassers get paid for a registration.

    Most "voter fraud" is actually just knuckleheads padding their paychecks with extra registrations.

    Don't know how much of a role this played in the case in the OP.

    just think...one definition of "voter fraud" has an actual person going to the polls to vote under an assumed identity...
    while the other definition of "voter fraud" is one enabling another person to vote under an assumed identity.
    my god....how outlandishly unrealistic to think the 2 aren't essentially the same damn thing in context to
    the damn OP.
    Hey, where can I get an Mickey Mouse ID?

    That would be cool.

    So did anybody who was fraudulently registered actually vote? They keep records you know.

    Pretending that defrauding an employer is the same thing as rigging an election is pretty weak. Especially when proof of any injury to the sanctity of the process can be so easily obtained.

    Sheesh...

    Well, if they obtained a valid fake drivers license, social security number, mailing address etc., all required by the voter registration department, then maybe.

    Would anybody spend the money and expose themselves to the attendant risk necessary to have an actual effect on the outcome of an election?

    Not likely.

    Does this mean that reality has a liberal bias?

    Closed minds don't want to know.

    As a legal matter I would agree.

    There is no doubt that ACORN and Project Vote have been guilty of both.

    Who gives these guys legal advice? You would think their lawyer would know better.

    yes...much like "murder" is more serious than "conspiracy to commit murder", even though both are capital crimes.
