ACORN Offices in Nevada Raided on Suspicions of Voter Fraud

Add another state to the list. ACORN offices in Las Vegas, Nevada were raided by state officials.
Nevada state authorities seized records and computers Tuesday from the Las Vegas office of an organization that tries to get low-income people registered to vote, after fielding complaints of voter fraud.

Bob Walsh, spokesman for the Nevada secretary of state's office, told the raid was prompted by ongoing complaints about "erroneous" registration information being submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also called ACORN.
Not up to their usual clever standards, some of the illegal registrations used the names of Dallas Cowboy players.
"Some of them used nonexistent names, some of them used false addresses and some of them were duplicates of previously filed applications," Walsh said, describing the complaints, which largely came from the registrar in Clark County, Nev.

Secretary of State Ross Miller said the fraudulent registrations included forms for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys football team.

"Tony Romo is not registered to vote in the state of Nevada, and anybody trying to pose as Terrell Owens won't be able to cast a ballot on Nov. 4," Miller said.
ACORN organizers gave a weak excuse, calling the raids a stunt by state officials. The claim is that ACORN would never be involved in fraudulent registrations. Right. Go ahead and keep on saying that.
