US left-wing activist group ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) will face court, charged with illegal activities which led to the registration of fake voters before last year’s US federal election.
ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), and Amy Busefink, its former regional supervisor, are each facing 13 criminal counts for allegedly running an illegal incentive program that paid bonuses or terminated employees based on the number of voters they registered. Prosecutors say such policies are a violation of state law and directly led to the thousands of fraudulent voter registrations turned in by ACORN in last year’s election cycle. Arraignment in the case is set for October 14th.
Back in May on 1WAY FM’s morning show I discussed the charges with KXNT reporter Julianne Thomas. That interview contains a lot of background information about the charges so I’m reposting it now for your reference.
