Another ACORN Voter Fraud Case .They Should Ban These Critters and Lock Up Their Leaders
COLLIER COUNTY: Voter registration fraud has been detected in one Florida county and now Republicans are pointing their finger at one organization designed to get minorities to vote.The accusations are against the "Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now," or ACORN.
The Republican National Committee accuses ACORN of creating fraudulent voter registration cards in an effort to benefit democrats. ACORN admits that they had a case of voter fraud happen this week in Seminole County, but say they have since fired that employee and the faulty registration has been thrown out.But this has caused the RNC to question ACORN's registration practices.
"This organization is not new to this game they are a quasi-criminal Democratic affiliation organization," said RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross.ABC7 talked to several election supervisors and found nothing criminal about the organization itself.
ACORN says it's non-partisan, but feel Republicans unfairly link them to Democrats because they help register low income and minority voters."The McCain campaign and the RNC are basically attacking groups that empower minority voters by getting help for folks get registered and get to the polls on election day," said Brian Kettenring, head organizer for ACORN in Florida.
But even if an organization tries passing off faulty registration cards, a statewide voter registration system still double checks the information."The system would say it's not matching so the system's pretty good about that," said Collier County Chief Deputy Supervisor of Elections Gary Beauchamp.
