    The people in ACORN (or whatever names they go by now) are hardly "poor".

    So some people who once were in the disband group ACORN are helping out OWS.... This is bad?
    No, of course not. Any liberal/socialist should feel proud to be associated with the group.

    ACORN leader avoids prison for voter fraud conspiracy | The Daily Caller

    A Las Vegas judge has spared senior ACORN executive Amy Adele Busefink jail time for her role in a notorious voter fraud conspiracy.

    Judge Donald Mosley sentenced Busefink to two years imprisonment but suspended the jail time provided that she abides by the terms of her probation. She was also fined a total of $4,000 and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service. Prosecutors had argued for a fine of just $1,000. Voter fraud, sometimes called electoral fraud, is a blanket term encompassing a host of election-related improprieties.

    Nevada Judge Calls ACORN 'Reprehensible,' Slaps Group With Maximum Fine For Voter Fraud | Fox News

    A Nevada judge on Wednesday gave ACORN, the defunct grass-roots community organization, the maximum fine for its illegal voter-registration scheme in that state.

    District Court Judge Donald Mosley was blunt and unsparing in his criticism of the discredited activist group. Citing the long history of voter registration fraud allegations that engulfed ACORN across the country, he slapped the group with a $5,000 fine for violating Nevada election law during the 2008 presidential election.

    If I had an individual in this courtroom...who was responsible for this kind of thing, I would put that person in prison for 10 years, hard time, and not think twice about it," he said. "To me this is reprehensible. This is the kind of thing you see in some banana republic, Uruguay or someplace, not in the United States."

    It is illegal in Nevada to pay bonuses to register voters.
    While paying bonuses is illegal in Nevada, it isn't in other states. Not voter fraud - Lot's of allegations


    I would be less proud of being associated with conservatives efforts to erect as many unnecessary hurdles for Americans (albeit a certain group of Americans) opportunity to actually vote.

    Or such devious tactics as a David Koch founded group, Americans For Prosperity, sending out absentee ballots to Wisconsin Democratic voters with the deadline date being days AFTER the actual deadline date.
