ACORN under investigation for voter fraud
Election officials across two North Carolina counties, Wake County and Durham County, are scratching their heads as dozens of letters are returned to them, hinting at bogus voter mailing addresses. Statewide, 135 fake voter forms are the focus of a state investigation for voter fraud. Election officials not that some ACORN workers used names and numbers from actual phone books, while some workers simply registered some applicants multiple times. Local ABC channel 11 (Raleigh-Durham) has discovered that at least one case of fraud maybe go to the Durham DA's office for prosecution.
ACORN's Pat McCoy says "We tell our canvassers right away, 'don't do this, there are criminal consequences if you do it.' We have had people who were prosecuted, but the organization has not been found to be guilty in regards to our programs."
