Nevada filed criminal charges against the community activist group on Monday.
Wired PR News – Nevada filed charges against community activist group ACORN on Monday. As reported by McClatchy Newspapers, the state’s attorney general filed charges alleging that the group and two ACORN employees facilitated voter registration fraud during the recent presidential election by enforcing quotas for canvassers to submit daily applications.
Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is quoted in the report as stating, “By structuring employment and compensation around a quota system, ACORN facilitated voter registration fraud in this state.”
A spokesperson for ACORN, Scott Levenson is quoted in the report as stating of the complaint, “There was no firm quota. If somebody got 17 (applications) every day, their job was pretty secure… What we were obviously concerned about is making sure people actually worked. If a canvasser came in every day with two registration forms . . . that was a problem.”
