ACORN Story o’ the Day
In Lake County, ACORN registered Jimmy John (at the address of the Jimmy John’s restaurant). Today we learn that ACORN tried to register Mickey Mouse (see picture to the right).
OK, but is this really election fraud? In Ohio we learn today that an individual who ACORN was fraudulently registering to vote has tried to cast a ballot.
The vote of Darnell Nash, one of four people subpoenaed in a Cuyahoga County probe of ACORN’s voter-registration activities, was canceled and his case was turned over to local prosecutors and law enforcement, Board of Elections officials said yesterday.
Nash had registered to vote repeatedly from an address that belonged to a legitimately registered voter, officials said during a hearing at which the subpoenaed voters were to testify.
Board officials had contacted Nash this summer, questioned his address and told him to stop repeat registering.
But still, he breezed into Ohio election offices – the state allows early voting for president – reregistered with a fake address and cast a paper ballot, officials said.
“He came in on 9/30 and Mr. Nash again registered to vote at [someone else’s] address, and he cast a ballot,” said board official Jane Platten.
Nash did not turn up for the hearing.
What a surprise. They caught this one–how many are getting through without being caught?
