Just days after Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and Secretary of State Ross Miller announced that voter registration fraud charges had been filed against ACORN and two of it’s employees in that state comes news that 7 ACORN works are being charged voter registration fraud in Pennsylvania:
PITTSBURGH (AP) – Seven Pittsburgh-area ACORN workers were charged with falsifying voter registration forms, with six accused of doing so to meet the group’s alleged quota system before last year’s general election.
District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. said he’s hoping the workers charged Thursday will help authorities determine whether Allegheny County ACORN officials will be charged with requiring the illegal quotas or otherwise directing that voter registrations be faked.
“You should consider the investigation as ongoing,” Zappala said.
Six suspects forged a total of 51 cards, a felony that carries up to seven years in prison. The same six also were charged with illegally accepting payments to meet a quota of 20 registrations per day – a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.
Count me among those who thinks the Census Bureau should reconsider ACORN’s involvement as a partner in the census. If ACORN’s history of questionable voter registration campaigns doesn’t disqualify them then these charges should.
