Bob Walsh, spokesman for the Nevada secretary of state's office, told FOXNews.com the raid was prompted by ongoing complaints about "erroneous" registration information being submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also called ACORN.Why should little things like phony names or non-existent addresses keep people from voting? And they would be voting Democratic.
The group was submitting the information through a voter sign-up drive known as Project Vote.
This isn't an isolated incident.
In 2006, ACORN also committed what Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed called the "worse case of election fraud" in the state's history.So remember this when someone on the Left brings up the recent court decision that states can require someone to show ID in order to vote. They aren't mad because they think it will keep legitimate voters away from the polls, they are mad because it puts a crimp in their plans for vote fraud. If the ends justify the means, then stealing an election via fraud is justified, no? [hat tip to Days of our Trailers]
In the case, ACORN submitted just over 1,800 new voter registration forms, and all but six of the 1,800 names were fake.
More recently, 27,000 registrations handled by the group from January to July 2008 "went into limbo because they were incomplete, inaccurate, or fraudulent," said James Terry, chief public advocate at the Consumers Rights League.
