More ACORN Goodness

October 8, 2008

Lookie here, the search warrant for the ACORN Nevada raid has come online

 

The last sentence of the first paragraph is priceless – lazy crack-heads.

Here is a little more info on the bust from the Las Vegas Sun

 

No one has been arrested.

ACORN’s interim chief organizer Bertha Lewis released a statement calling the Secretary of State’s office raid “a stunt that serves no useful purpose other than [to] discredit our work registering Nevadans and distracting us from the important work ahead of getting every eligible vote to the polls.”

ACORN had received a subpoena dated Sept. 19 requesting information on 15 employees, all of whose names had been included in packages previously submitted to election officials, Lewis said. ACORN provided its personnel records on the 15 employees on Sept. 29, she said.

“For the past 10 months, any time ACORN has identified a potentially fraudulent application, we turn that application in to election officials separately and offer to provide election officials with the information they would need to pursue an investigation or prosecution of the individual,” Lewis said. “Election officials routinely ignored this information and failed to act.”

ACORN representatives met with election officials and a representative of the Secretary of State’s office on July 17 and were asked to provide a second copy of documents previously provided, she said. She said ACORN gave officials copies of 46 application packages, which involved 33 former canvassers.

In a 19-page affidavit by criminal investigator Colin Hayes of the Secretary of State’s office, Hayes said 59 inmates worked for ACORN between March 5 and July 31.

One ex-employee of ACORN, Jason Anderson, rose to the rank of a supervisor in the voter registration program although he was a convicted felon and an inmate at Casa Grande at the time, the affidavit said.

In addition to the records ACORN had given state officials, Clark County election workers discovered another 183 suspicious files, each with different voters’ names, the affidavit said. In some cases, dozens of people had no records in Nevada, or addresses didn’t exist, the affidavit said.
