ACORN charged with submitting false voter registration forms
AP reports: An advocacy group that registered about a million voters two
years ago is wrestling with new charges of voter fraud and sloppy work
weeks before crucial midterm elections.
In Philadelphia, the city's voter registration office has rejected about
3,000 cards submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for
Reform Now since April because of missing information or invalid addresses.
Election officials in three of Ohio's largest counties have cited
problems with hundreds of voter registration cards. ACORN is accused of
submitting cards with nonexistent addresses, forged signatures and in
one case for someone who died seven years ago.
"In my opinion there's a lot of words but little action in terms of
fixing the problem," said Matt Damschroder, the elections board director
in Franklin County in Ohio.
County election officials in Denver forwarded about 200 cards to the
secretary of state's office after discovering identical handwriting on
signatures. Colorado officials investigated similar problems two years
ago. -- AP Wire | 10/01/2006 | Voter fraud charges still tripping up
