      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
