ACORN Threw Out Republican Voter Registrations

Via Atlas Shrugs:

In February of 2009 Fathiyyah Muhammad of Jacksonville, Florida, heard that ACORN was paying three dollars for each vote you could register. Fatiyyah claims she registered voters for Acorn there (at three dollars each), but that the group threw out her votes and fired her when she brought them GOP registrations.

It’s hard to know if this story is real. I’m hoping that Atlas at least saw some kind of documentation that Ms. Muhammad actually worked for ACORN. It bothers me that there is no name of an ACORN employee given. However, this is not ACORN’s first voter registration fraud in Florida:

Federal and state authorities in Miami are still searching for five of the 11 people suspected of falsifying information on hundreds of voter registration cards — including registering the name of the late actor Paul Newman — the Florida Department of Law Enforcement told Thursday. 

Six people were taken into custody Wednesday as arrest warrants were issued for 11 workers hired by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — or ACORN — on charges of voter registration fraud.  

Florida state attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle said the 11 workers hired to register voters by ACORN in Homestead, Fla., submitted 888 fraudulent names — which included names of people who were already registered voters, fictitious names, and the name of the late actor Paul Newman, who died in Sept. 2008.

Do you ever wonder if your vote counted – if just maybe some of these fraudulent registrations turned into REAL votes? I know I do……………
