|Main ACORN page|
- Dayo Olopade, a political reporter for The New Republic, writes on October 22, 2008: "But ACORN is required by law to pass along all signatures to state officials, even ones that are obviously duplicates, so the argument that they're manufacturing them seems spurious."
- Wade Rathke, who writes in the Miami Herald on October 21, 2008, "In nine of the 11 states where questions about ACORN's registration efforts have been raised, by law every voter registration form must be submitted, regardless of doubts about its authenticity."
- Media Matters for America, which says, "...the statutes of most of those states require third parties registering prospective voters to submit all registration forms they receive" and "...the statutes of at least nine of those 11 states require third parties registering prospective voters to submit to election officials all registration forms they received -- even those they believed to be false or duplicate applications."
- Bertha Lewis of ACORN, who says, "First of all, in every county when you register voters, you've got to turn in every single card no matter how weird or wacko it may appear, that's the law."
