ACORN Investigated by FBI For Voter Fraud...

Well, it's about time...your tax dollars at work investigating another use of your tax dollars at work:

The FBI is investigating whether the community activist group ACORN helped foster voter registration fraud around the nation before the presidential election.

A senior law enforcement official confirmed the investigation to The Associated Press on Thursday. A second senior law enforcement official says the FBI was looking at results of recent raids on ACORN offices in several states for any evidence of a coordinated national scam.

ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, says it has registered 1.3 million young people, minorities and poor and working-class voters—most of whom tend to be Democrats. ( most?? how about ALL of them! - ff)

Republican accusations about the group were raised during Wednesday's presidential debate between Democrat Barack Obama and GOP candidate John McCain.

Some ACORN employees have been accused of submitting false voter registration forms—including some signed `Mickey Mouse' or other fictitious characters.

Those voter registration cards have become the focus of fraud investigations in Nevada, Connecticut, Missouri and at least five other states. Election officials in Ohio and North Carolina also recently questioned the group's voter forms.

ACORN has said the "vast majority" of its workers are conscientious, but some might have turned in duplicate applications or provided fake information to pad their pay.

Unfortunately, it's doubtful this is going to be resolved before the election, and ACORN just got a whole bunch of taxpayer dollars via the bailout bill, courtesy of the Democrat party.

If Maverick wasn't so concerned with appearing bi-partisan, he could have screamed about this a couple of months ago, when this corrupt scam was evident to anyone looking. Or he could have led a GOP revolt against the bailout bill unless the back door funding for ACORN was slashed. Needless to say, he did neither, and we'll all continue to suffer for it.
