ACORN Voter Fraud


The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a community based organization that supports for modest and poor income folks established in 1970 by Wade Rathke and Gary Delgado.

W. Rathke, among most influential hard-left campaigners in America, is an ex-member of a radical 1960s group named the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). The Weathermen terrorist cluster separated from the SDS in 1969.

According to the ACORN its preferences consist of better housing and good wages for the poor, more community growth investments from governments and banks together with better-quality public schools.

On the other hand, ACORN is also known for its voter registration fraud known as ACORN voter fraud. Last year alone ACORN had registered 1,315,037 voters. Even though ACORN prides itself for its voter registration efforts but as a fact ACORN also has a long history of scandals often called ACORN voter frauds.

For example in 1986, in the state of Missouri, 12 ACORN members were alleged of ACORN voter fraud and that case was not a single occasion in the state. In St. Louis, in December 2004, 6 volunteers pleaded culprit of several election law violations for filling out voter registration cards with names of dead citizens along with plentiful bogus information.

On February 10, 2005, N. Montgomery who was a paid employee and ran Operation Big Vote during the run-up to the 2001 mayoral primary was found culpable of vote fraud. According to the initial investigations, N. Montgomery hired around 30 workers to perform fake voter registration canvassing.

This was another spiteful ACORN voter fraud. In Kansas City, Missouri, in 2007, 4 ACORN workers were accused for another ACORN voter fraud. And in April of this year 8 ACORN workers in St. Louis city and county again pleaded guilty to federal election ACORN voter fraud for submitting phony voter registrations.
