    ACORN pleads guilty in Nevada voter fraud case
    Wednesday, April 6, 2011
    (04-06) 18:27 PDT LAS VEGAS (AP) --
    The defunct political advocacy group ACORN has pleaded guilty in a case alleging that canvassers were illegally paid to register Nevada voters during the 2008 presidential campaign.
    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday that ACORN defense attorney Lisa Rasmussen entered the guilty plea to one count of felony compensation for registration of voters.
    Under a deal, 12 other felony counts were dropped against the organization.
    ACORN faces a maximum $5,000 fine, and under the deal, prosecutors will not argue at the Aug. 10 sentencing hearing.
    ACORN supervisor Amy Busefink pleaded no contest in November to two counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters. She is appealing to the Nevada Supreme Court.

      It sounds like they charged a PERSON not the entity (which I assume is a corp. ?)
      Just pay your dues, and be quiet :-)

        Seams like they failed to seek the countless other charges. Forgery on each count? Should be numerous federal and states charges.

          The guilty plea was to illegally paying compensation for registration of voters. That is not the same thing as casting a fraudulent vote.

              Exactly. There's no evidence of any actual fraudulent votes stemming from this.

              They paid people on a per-person basis to register voters. Some of the people thus hired submitted some obviously fake voter registration forms to collect the per-voter basis. There was nobody associated with these fake registrations, they would never be used.

              ACORN used a pay system that could be exploited, it was exploited. The only other harm at all was to the registrar who had to process the bogus registrations. This is not a case of vote fraud!

                ACORN is a part of the SEIU! Hopefully, this is just the tip of the iceberg and more counts in other states will be forthcoming. JFI, Obama was a part of the SEIU in Chicago before he got all involved with politics.

                Here are numerous articles on the two:
