Excellent editorial in today’s Wall Street Journal about recent federal grand jury indictments of Acorn, a union front group that the Journal rightly calls the, “shock troops for the AFL-CIO.” The indictments allege even more voter fraud against Acorn. Says the Journal:
“We wish this were an aberration, but allegations of fraud have tainted Acorn voter drives across the country. Acorn workers have been convicted in Wisconsin and Colorado, and investigations are still under way in Ohio, Tennessee and Pennsylvania….
Acorn and its affiliates have pulled some real stunts in recent years. In Ohio in 2004, a worker for one affiliate was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations that included underage voters, dead voters and pillars of the community named Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey.”
So when you hear allegations of voter fraud these next weeks and months, remember Acorn and all they stand for. From Acorns grow tall oaks of corruption.[UPDATE]: Here’s a link to a pretty eye-opening — and damning — report on Acorn and an accompanying site.
