Voter Registration Fraud In Florida
The taxpayer-financed community group known for its fraudulent national voter registration drives has struck again, this time submitting forged applications in the key battleground state of Florida where it has signed up tens of thousands of new voters for the upcoming election.
Just last week the Chicago-based Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), which incidentally endorses Barack Obama, got busted for submitting more than 1,000 fraudulent voter registration cards in New Mexico’s most populous county (Bernalillo). The clerk’s office notified federal authorities and an investigation is underway.
After all, ACORN is notorious for falsifying information to register new voters and has been caught doing so in Milwaukee, Missouri, Ohio, North Carolina and Colorado to name a few. Last year the group settled the largest case of voter fraud in the history of Washington State after seven workers were caught submitting about 2,000 fake registration forms.
Its latest scam was discovered in two north Florida counties (Seminole and Orange) where ACORN staffers submitted multiple duplicate registrations on behalf of six separate voters. One individual had 21 duplicate applications, according to the Election Supervisor in Orange County.
ACORN, where Obama worked as a “community organizer,” has 15,000 members in Florida who plan to stop the suppression of minority voter participation by registering them before the November election. In 2004 the group signed up 212,000 people to vote in the Sunshine State. This year the core of the new voters were registered in three counties —Orange and south Florida’s Broward and Miami-Dade.
