ACORN Charged With Voter Registration Corruption

A voter registration drive last year illegally required canvassers to meet quotas to keep their jobs and resulted in thousands of garbage registrations gumming up Clark County voter rolls, officials said Monday as they released a criminal complaint against the drives organizers. The complaint names the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, as well as Chris Edwards, the groups former Las Vegas field director, and Amy Busefink, who was regional director for voter registration. In all, there are 26 charges of compensation for registration of voters and 13 charges of being a principal in the incident. An initial hearing has been set for 7:30 a.m. June 3 in Las Vegas Justice Court. (CCI NOTES: ACORN has received millions of dollars in funding from the so-called Catholic Campaign for Human Development fleeced from Catholics in “second collections” that were alledgedly going to help the poor. Instead, these donations have been diverted to hundreds of left wing political groups like ACORN.)
