More Voter Fraud from ACORN, 39 Turned into Authorities
ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, has fallen under allegations of voter fraud in this election cycle as in 2006. The Milwaukee , Wisconsin Election chief has turned in 39 individuals to authorities for violating voter registration laws.
The violations are far reaching and include
Seventeen apparently filled out voter applications and then signed the cards themselves. That involved two to four cards in each case.
Twelve submitted cards for individuals who later told ACORN they never filled out an application. That involved one card in each case.
One submitted a card for a dead voter. That was the second such case; a Voters Project worker previously submitted a card for a deceased voter.
One was apparently making up driver’s license numbers for an unknown number of voters.
One submitted about a half-dozen applications for already-registered voters.

ACORN Voter Registration Drive Investigated in 17 states
In October, allegations of problems with voter registration cards surfaced in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. According to the Associated Press, “In Franklin County [Ohio], prosecutors are looking at almost 400 cards the county elections board said included already registered voters or people with the wrong address.” In Philadelphia, about 3,000 cards were rejected because of missing information or invalid addresses.
While Democrats continue to accuse Republicans of mass voter fraud, only ACORN has been prosecuted for actual crimes.

The Politisite Bottom Line: Federal Prosecution of election fraud is difficult. The State Attorney must have evidence that the individual or organization had an intent to skew an election in order for it to be prosecuted. The standard is so high that voter fraud rarely gets to a court room. If the voter fraud makes it to a court room, the burdon of proof is so high that most cases are aquitted. When a case is proven under the stringent rules, you can be sure that the evidence was overwhelming.
