    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 FOXNews.com 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.

    The group was submitting the information through a voter sign-up drive known as Project Vote.

    "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. He said some registrations used the names of Dallas Cowboys football players.

    Walsh said agents from both the secretary of state's office and Nevada attorney general's office conducted the raid, and "took a bunch of stuff."

    ACORN spokesman Charles Jackson confirmed the group's Nevada office was raided.

    It's not the first time ACORN's been under investigation for irregularities in registration records.

    In 2006, ACORN committed what Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed called the "worse case of election fraud" in the state's history.

    In the case, ACORN submitted just over 1,800 new voter registration forms, and all but six of the 1,800 names were fake.

    Obama will do anything to steal...er ... win the election.

    If you don’t know what ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is all about, you better bone up. This left-wing group takes in 40 percent of its revenues from American taxpayers — you and me — and has leveraged nearly four decades of government subsidies to fund affiliates that promote the welfare state and undermine capitalism and self-reliance, some of which have been implicated in perpetuating illegal immigration and encouraging voter fraud. A new whistleblower report from the Consumer Rights League documents how Chicago-based ACORN has commingled public tax dollars with political projects.
    Who in Washington will fight to ensure that your money isn’t being spent on these radical activities?
    Don’t bother asking Barack Obama. He cut his ideological teeth working with ACORN as a “community organizer” and legal representative. Naturally, ACORN’s political action committee has warmly endorsed his presidential candidacy. According to ACORN, Obama trained its Chicago members in leadership seminars; in turn, ACORN volunteers worked on his campaigns. Obama also sat on the boards of the Woods Fund and Joyce Foundation, both of which poured money into ACORN’s coffers. ACORN head Maude Hurd gushes that Obama is the candidate who “best understands and can affect change on the issues ACORN cares about” — like ensuring their massive pipeline to your hard-earned money.

    But...the American people don't care. He's not Bush and McCain is according to some. :rolleyes:

    I swear, if this joker is elected, and again, I do not think he will, it will prove to the entire world we are some of the dumbest people ever to live.

    Ignorance is our most expensice national product. We do got some deem dum peoples in dis cuntry.....Cynically, the libs want to keep some folks down on the farm so they will never see the big city ( their own potential to achieve without a handout).....if they ever see the lights of the big city, the Dems might lose a vote or two. It is hard for some to turn down an offer of something for nothing...."vote for change and I will take from the 'rich' and give to you.....I will buy your home,. give you free health care....educate your kids...all you have to do is vote for me"

    Yep, you are correct. Remember, we cannot judge libs for their actions, only their intentions. The Dems have a vested interest in keeping some folks in their places,,,a permanent voting block I guess.

    Like our friends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. They have made fortunes off the race business.....they have a vested interest in keeping it alive. Job security. And for those who think electing Barry will make everything fine and dandy pertaining to racism,,,you are kidding yourelves. A criticism of Barry will be viewed as racist in nature. Take it to the bank....hopefully it will still be there we you go.

    Nevada authorities claim voter-fraud scheme used names of Cowboys

    America's Team. Sometimes, you wonder if the Dallas Cowboys might be a little better off if they weren't so well known.
    Here's an example.


    [SIZE=+2]Nevada authorities claim voter-fraud scheme used names of Dallas Cowboys

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]07:04 PM CDT on Tuesday, October 7, 2008

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Associated Press[/SIZE] LAS VEGAS – Nevada authorities seized records Tuesday from a group they accused of submitting fraudulent voter-registration forms – including for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys.

    "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," said Secretary of State Ross Miller, referring to star players on the pro football team.

    State authorities raided the headquarters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, a group that works to register low-income people.

    Miller said the raid was part of a monthslong investigation, and he contended the group had submitted registration forms that used false information or duplicated information on multiple forms. He did not estimate how many.

    Bertha Lewis, interim chief organizer for ACORN, said the group has been working with election officials to weed out fraudulent forms from those submitted by the canvassers it hires.

    "Today's raid by the secretary of state's office is a stunt that serves no useful purpose other than to discredit our work registering Nevadans," Lewis said.

    "For the past 10 months, anytime ACORN has identified a potentially fraudulent application, we turn that application in to election officials separately and offer to provide election officials with the information they would need to pursue an investigation or prosecution of the individual," Lewis said.
    She said ACORN had turned in 46 problem applications submitted by 33 former employees to election officials in the Las Vegas area, where it has registered 80,000 people.

    According to its national Web site, the group has registered 1.3 million people nationwide for the Nov. 4 election. It has encountered complaints of fraud stemming from registration efforts in Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Mexico, Michigan, Ohio and Missouri.

    "The fact is, this is hard work and there were some people that probably sat down on a couch and filled out names out of a phone book," said Matthew Henderson, Southwest regional director for ACORN. "That's really what we're talking about here – not an attempt to steal an election."

    Miller said no one had been charged or arrested in Nevada.

    His spokesman, Bob Walsh, said investigators were using information from various sources, including the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office in Nevada.

    "You don't have to read too many cop novels to know that sometimes people will tell you a grain of truth to try to hide the rest of the truth," Walsh said. "I'm certainly not suggesting that ACORN is that nefarious, but at the same time just because they handed over 50 to you doesn't mean there aren't 150 others out there."

    ACORN has been indicted numerous times for voter fraud in multiple states. The $300 billion bailout bill funneled millions to these guys. I don't know if the $700/800 billion bailout just passed does or not.
