Five Wisconsin residents, including two who worked for community organizing group ACORN, were charged Monday with election fraud relating to the 2008 presidential election.
State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced felony charges against Maria Miles, Kevin Clancy, Michael Henderson, Herbert Gunka and Suzanne Gunka.

Miles and Clancy worked for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now and are accused of submitting multiple voter registration applications for the same individuals, including each other, to meet voter registration quotes imposed by the community organizing group.

Henderson is charged with one count of voting by a disqualified person and providing false information to election officials. The allegation claims he was on a felony probation and prohibited from voting at the time.

Herbert and Suzanne Gunka are each charged with double voting -- a felony -- by allegedly absentee voting and then going to the polls to vote.

"The integrity of elections is dependent upon citizens and officials insisting they be conducted lawfully. Wisconsin's citizens should not have to wonder whether their vote has been negated or diminished by illegally cast ballots," Van Hollen said.

My FoxMilwaukee reported that neither could immediately be reached for comment, and it was unclear whether they had lawyers.

Each individual charge carries a potential penalty of imprisonment up to three and a half years and a $10,000 fine. They are scheduled to appear in court on April 20.

The Rightwing Witch Hunt Against ACORN
After 18 months of screaming headlines and attacks vilifying the anti-poverty group ACORN--attacks reminiscent of a New McCarthyism that threatened the group's very existence--it's clear now that this was a right-wing witch-hunt which, sadly, too many Democrats and the mainstream media failed to fact-check.

In December, the Congressional Research Service cleared ACORN of allegations of improper use of federal funding and voter registration fraud. The latest to weigh-in on the controversy is Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes. After a four-month investigation Hynes declared "no criminality has been found" with regard to the conduct of three ACORN employees in the infamous and--turns out--misnamed "pimp-prostitute" video.

In fact, a law enforcement source told the New York Daily News that the unedited version of the video which caused all the outrage "was not clear."

"They edited the tape to meet their agenda," said the official.

Conservative operative James O'Keefe--who was later arrested after an alleged attempt to bug the office of Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu's office in New Orleans--was in reality wearing a white shirt and khakis in the ACORN office and posing as a law school student trying to protect his girlfriend from an abusive pimp. The outrageous pimp outfit was shot later and used to promote the video.

"O'Keefe and the Fox attack machine targeted ACORN because of our successful work to empower hundreds of thousands of low and moderate families as voters and active citizens," said ACORN spokesman Kevin Whelan. "Hopefully [the DA's] announcement, and similar results from independent reviews, will make politicians and media examine the facts more carefully the next time a valuable community organization is attacked."

The damage already done to ACORN includes severely curtailing its work helping low-income people with tax preparation and obtaining the Earned Income Tax Credit, fighting foreclosures, and investigating wage and hour exploitation of workers. The hysteria has also driven away private funding, and there is "defund ACORN" language in the recently signed Omnibus bill that ACORN and the Center for Constitutional Rights are fighting in court.

As a result of the funding struggle, local chapters of ACORN are now reconstituting themselves as separate, stand-alone organizations with their own names. 17 state groups have either done that or will do that by the end of the month.

Fox and tabloids like the New York Post did a hatchet-job on ACORN that too many in the mainstream media were eager to run with. It seems to me those outlets have a special obligation to now step up and tell the full story. Also, contact New York Times Public Editor Clark Hoyt, Washington Post Ombudsman the media and politicians got it wrong and what the consequences have been to ACORN.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

I hope you are not talking about me, I just find it funny that everyone slammed Acorn over the videos that were produced, but when the truth came out about the videos being faked hardly anything was said about it.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Where does it say the videos were faked?

That's a pretty broad statement. I would rather see the original full video to make that judgement.

The main point of the video was to promote a conspiracy by Acorn to committ fraud. No expert I am. But, to determine otherwise even from the videos released seems kind of silly and another attempt by the left to redefine recorded history.

Who knows, they might succeed with that.

"Officials"......Say a lot...How much is pure BS would most likely amaze the most jaded among us...Perhaps this "Official"... is lying, or is just another sad, lonely normative thinker....

With the current people that are in power, there is no way that ACORN will be found guilty of anything! Because if they are then the Democrat power brokers will go down with them. Just like Blago in ILL. he can't be tried without Obama being found guilty too. So at best you might find him dead in a park somewhere.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

What McLovin posted had nothing to do with any video whatsoever.

The low life ACORN workers were caught by the state of Wisconsin and are being prosecuted by the State Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

To try to lighten what these scumbags did by diverting attention to another completely unrelated case is absurd.

Care to comment about McLovin's original post?
