ACORN Fraud Investigation In Las Vegas

ACORN busted. False and Duplicate Names. Dall Cowboy’s names used in fraud. People on the streets are being “PAID” to scrounge up votes for Obama, with BONUS pay for recruiting more voters.

People wake up this is not an isolated incident. This is country wide. ACORN is on an all out assult of our Electoral Process. 

The Las Vegas headquarters of the nation’s largest grassroots community organization for low-income people was raided today by Nevada state authorities as part of a voter-fraud probe. 

The raid was initiated by Nevada’s Secretary of State, Ross Miller, after a series of accusations that the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also known as ACORN, was submitting voter registration lists to the state that contained false or duplicate names of voters. 

“When we got [to the headquarters], no one was there so, there were no arrests,” Secretary of State spokesman Bob Walsh told CBS News. But, he added “agents did seize lots of records.” 

CBS News has learned that the state’s investigation is focusing on the conduct of ACORN’s work force. Critics allege that ACORN hires workers “off the street” to sign up new voters, paying them by the number of voters registered – sometimes resulting in false and duplicate names. But an ACORN spokesman dismisses this allegation and told CBS News that workers are paid “by the hour” and “not by the number of people they sign up.” 

In an official statement, ACORN Interim Chief Organizer, Bertha Lewis, called today’s raid “a stunt” and said it “serves no useful purpose other than discredit our work registering Nevadans and distracting us from the important work ahead of getting every eligible voter to the polls.” Lewis says any time ACORN “identified a potentially fraudulent application” they notified election officials. But, Lewis claims Nevada election officials “routinely ignored” ACORN’s concerns and “failed to act.” 

The raid comes two months after state and federal officials formed a task force to go after election-fraud allegations. Earlier this year, U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey issued a memo to all Justice Department employees telling them in no uncertain terms that “politics must play no role in our efforts.” 

ACORN has been around since the 1970’s and has offices nationwide to assist low-income people with a number of issues. Part of the organization’s mission is to help low-income Americans, minorities, and youth, who are “historically disenfranchised” from voting register for elections. ACORN’s website says they “helped more than 1.68 million citizens register to vote” for the 2004 and 2006 elections. And just yesterday, ACORN announced it had conducted its “largest and most comprehensive” voter drive for the upcoming presidential election helping “over 1.3 million Americans register to vote.”

  1. They are getting busted in 10 states as of this morning. good article

  2. Actually the charges are false.

  3. Walkndude and you proof of that is… Oh your just another liberal troll with nothing of substance to say.
    Again another wonderful post by a liberal that poses strong arguments and convincing evidence.

  4. Much to do about nothing!

    Bring it!

  5. Odd isn’t it that Acorn seems to hire people who resort to faking voter registrations in every office Acorn opens. Their lawyer blames the employees. One Acorn management type said they can’t prevent employees from filing false paperwork. In one location, maybe; but not in every place Acorn shows up to register voters. Also interesting is that none of the falsified Acorn registrations are for Republicans. And, in areas where Acorn is most active Obama is pulling ahead. Did anyone bother to check out what Acorn did with the $800,000.00 Obama gave one of their subsidiary groups in New Orleans? What reforms are they planning if Obama wins?

  6. I have been watching this news about ACORN in various states for months, but I’ve never seen an above-the-fold serious piece about it in any mainstream newspaper. I’m not holding my breath, either! It appears that We the People are forced to do the job that journalists were supposed to be doing. Amazing. I feel like asking for half their earnings every time I have to dig deep for facts that should have been checked out by a reporter a year ago.

    Nice Website!

  8. Its just a sad attempt for the republicans to steal the election. Its the same kind of gestapo stuff they pulled in 2000.

  9. Stophate,
    So you do not think that if there is voter fraud going on around the country that it is an important issue? Only if it is favor the liberals is it ok?
    This is an extremely important issue, now and for the future. There needs to be reform into how elections are conducted to bring them up to meet the needs of todays world. This is an issue that has not been addressed for a very long time and needs to be.

  10. Nita,
    Thankfully for the Internet and the blogsphere, the people can find out what is going on and do not have to rely solely on the fourth column. They lost their integrity years ago. Do you remember when an error in a live broadcast, even an extra um… would have lead to the termination of a reporter? now they can screw up and say things that are untrue without consequence… do you remember when there was Journalistic integrity and judgment? Do you remember when the Editor in Chief would not run a story because something was Classified or Top Secret? Those days are gone. The media makes the news these days, they do not report on it.

    What we need to do is ensure the truth gets out there, there are those such as stophate that will never believe the truth, but if we can reach 1-5% of those that are open minded, we have done our job. I would not want the political money being paid to the news reports at this point, it is blood money, the money of the leeches that run congress and the corporate greed machine that backs the likes of Barack Obama… Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, George Soros, Tony Rezko, Wall Street…
