FDLE arrests 5 former ACORN workers

by Dara Kam | September 9th, 2009

State law enforcement officials arrested five voter registration workers today for forging voter registration applications last year. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued arrest warrants for five others.

The ten worked for the Association of Communities for Reform Now (ACORN) in Miami-Dade County last spring.

ACORN quality control workers suspected that something was amiss with the applications turned in by the ten and reported them to law enforcement.

FDLE and FBI agents found that 197 of 260 applications contained personal identification information that did not match any living person.

The investigators believe that the workers made up the information and forged the signatures, according to an FDLE press release issued today.

Those charged range in age from 19 to 45.

    These are just sacrificial lambs. ACORN leadership knows their standard operating procedures encourage this type of action and when they get caught they’re “shocked” to find out that there’s gambling in Casablanca. So 200 registrations were found… how many weren’t?
