ACORN to be sentenced for voter fraud Wednesday

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

After pleading guilty to a species of voter fraud in Las Vegas in April, ACORN will be sentenced Wednesday for its crimes.

ACORN was convicted of felony unlawful compensation for registration of voters. With the full knowledge of upper management, ACORN illegally offered cash bonuses to its voter registration canvassers in a scheme called “Blackjack.” Canvassers received extra money if they hit the magic number of 21 registrations in a day.

Senior ACORN executives Amy Adele Busefink and Christopher Howell Edwards were also convicted for their roles in the scheme. ACORN cared so little about the conspiracy that its voter fraud division, Project Vote, put Busefink in charge of the group’s national get-out-the-vote drive in 2010 while she was under indictment in Nevada.

Mickey Mouse, Mary Poppins, and various celebrities living and dead have been registered to vote over and over again precisely because ACORN has been allowed to get away with polluting the nation’s voter rolls for so long.

Significantly, this is the first time ACORN itself, as opposed to its individual employees, has been convicted of a crime.

But this is not the first time that ACORN has found itself in legal hot water.

Judicial Watch just uncovered massive voter fraud by ACORN in Colorado and ACORN settled a racketeering lawsuit in Ohio out of court last year and agreed to leave the state. In the settlement with the Buckeye Institute’s 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, ACORN agreed to “cease all Ohio activity” and surrender all its state business licenses.

ACORN’s other crimes are exhaustively documented in my new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers.

Meanwhile, here’s an interview Fox News senior reporter Eric Shawn conducted with Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller about the Las Vegas fraud case on the weekend.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.

  • Oh, Brad: every word you write is a lie.

    In fact, at least two people registered by ACORN, Claudel Gilbert and Darnell Nash, have been convicted of actual fraudulent voting. ACORN as a matter of policy encourages voter registration canvassers to falsify registration forms. When these poor, uneducated, underpaid people (often recently paroled felons) get caught, ACORN claims to be a victim and throws them to the wolves.

    And you only count actual convictions which is part of your dishonest shtick. ACORN workers have falsified millions of voter registration forms over the years. Undoubtedly many fraudulent votes were cast as a result of these registrations but because voter fraud is a very difficult crime to detect and prove there are relatively few convictions that can be documented. This doesn't mean fraudulent votes weren't cast. It's like the gun control advocates ignoring all the instances in where the presence of a lawful firearm has deterred a crime. Almost impossible to prove absolutely.

    You are a voter fraud advocate just like your communist friends at ACORN.

  • Great work, Matt! Be sure not to let your reader know that there is absolutely zero evidence that any illegal vote was ever cast by any improper registration by any ACORN worker in any election(and that the workers in question were actually defrauding ACORN, so they were turned in by them to authorities.)

    Also, be sure not to let anybody know that what ACORN pleaded guilty to in Nevada had NOTHING whatsover to do with "voter fraud".

    Or just keep lying to your reader, if you prefer, as is your habit.
