Via Hot Air, Wisconsin authorities have charged 5 with election fraud including 2 from ACORN:
“Before the 2008 election, Wisconsin’s Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen and Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisolm formed a special task force to combat attempts to pervert elections, especially in Milwaukee, where most of the problems occurred in 2004.
Today, Van Hollen announced indictments in five cases —
including two felony indictments against ACORN for scheming to have registrants vote multiple times in November 2008.”
***[EDIT: See the Updates below and at the original link.] ***
Details of the allegations are at the link.
UPDATE 3/9/2010: Ed Morrissey added this correction:
“Update IV: Brad from Brad’s Blog takes me to task — rightly — for some very sloppy writing in my second paragraph. The indictments were not filed against ACORN, but against two of their employees. That’s not the same thing, and I’ve corrected the paragraph to make it more specific and accurate. I apologize for the confusion that caused anyone.”
UPDATE 2 — And this:
“Update V: The crimes related to registrations, not actual voting; I’ve amended that paragraph to show that.”
